DEC arrests Baptist Church clergymen for money laundering
John Nyawali

The Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) has arrested four clergymen from the Baptist church on the Copper belt for theft and money laundering activities involving over K60 million.

DEC Public relations manager John Nyawali named the four as Nelson Hayashida an American Missionary, Reverend Brighton Kafupi Mpatisha, Pastor Mulenga Nkole and Thomas Lumba.

He says the clergymen in their capacities as Directors and signatories to a bank account for the Baptist Convention of Zambia did steal a total of K66 million from the organization by purporting to have been duly authorized to withdraw the money when in fact not.

Mr. Nyawali says the four have been released on bond in their own recognizance and will appear in the Kalulushi magistrate court soon.

In a related development a 29 year old businessman of Lusaka has been arrested for issuing cheques amounting to over K40 million on an insufficiently funded account.

Mr. Nyawali says Dennis Kachimba, a former banker at one of the leading international banks issued a total of eight cheques with a value of K48 million to his business partners which bounced due to insufficient funds contrary to National Payment Systems Act no.1 of 2007.

He says Mr. Kachimba still remains in custody after failing to provide two working sureties and K40 million as bond conditions.
