Patriotic Front Leader Michael Sata caught up in tear gas at DEC offices
Sata after the tear gas incident at the Drug Enforcement Commission offices in Lusaka yesterday 25.11.2010

Police fired tear gas canisters as patriotic front leader Michael Sata accompanied by a mob of cadres attempted to force entry into Drug Enforcement Commission offices where Mr. Sata was summoned.

Upon Mr. Sata’s arrival at DEC offices around 9:40 hours, a mob of cadres that stood opposite DEC offices crossed over to accompany the PF leader.

Police officers could not open the gate to allow Mr. Sata and his sympathizers enter the premises.

Some cadres started banging the gate forcing police officers to fire tear gas in a bid to disperse the irate cadres.

In the process the PF leader, journalists who where covering the story and other people who had accompanied Mr. Sata got choked with the tear gas as they scampered in all directions.

Among the people that were caught up included MMD’s Kafulafuta Member of Parliament, George Mpombo.

About ten minutes later Mr. Sata, his lawyer Bonaventure Mutale and some MPs’ who include MMD’s Kafulafuta Member of Parliament, George Mpombo, Lusaka Central MP guy Scot and Kanyama member of parliament colonel Garry Chanda where allowed to enter DEC offices while Mandevu MP Jean Kapata was pushed away.

Mr. Sata was summoned by the Drug Enforcement Commission in relation to allegations of money laundering involving 100,000 US Dollars.

Recently former PF Secretary General, Edward Mumbi alleged that Mr. Sata gave Change Life Zambia Executive Director Father Frank Bwalya money to de-campaign the government.

Meanwhile, the Drug Enforcement Commission has recorded a statement from Patriotic Front (PF) leader Michael Sata involving the US $100,000 transaction at Finance Bank.

The statement was recorded from Mr. Sata as part of the ongoing investigation involving the transaction.

Drug Enforcement Commission Public Relations Manager John Nyawali has confirmed in a statement made available to MUVI TV News.

He says several other Finance Bank employees and some officials at Action Auto who are believed to have been involved in the transaction have also been interviewed.

Mr. Sata was accompanied to the DEC Headquarters by his lawyers.

This follows an official report submitted to the Commission by members of the public suspecting money laundering activities in the US$ 100,000 transaction which occurred at Finance Bank.

And, the Commission has arrested a senior Bank official at one of the commercial banks for tampering with seized property contrary to section 21 of the Prohibition and Prevention of Money Laundering Act no. 14 of 2001.

Terry Mweene, 40, unblocked the seized account belonging to Musa Dimingo who was arrested for money laundering activities and transferred the said monies to another Bank.
