A 42 YEAR OLD female Revenue Collector of Lewanika General Hospital in Western Province has been arrested by the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) for money laundering activities involving over K200 thousand. 42 year old Charity Sitwala, a Revenue Collector residing at Forest Plots in Mongu has been arrested for fraudulent false accounting, theft by public servant and money laundering contrary to the laws of Zambia. Sitwala was arrested through the Drug Enforcement Commission anti-Money Laundering Investigations Unit. Particulars of the offence are that Charity Sitwala on dates unknown but between 1st January 2013 and 30th April, 2015 jointly and whilst acting together with other persons unknown with intent to defraud, did falsify GRZ general receipts amounting to K61, 641.00 in that the original receipts had different amounts from the duplicated ones. DEC Public Relations Officer Theresa Katongo has disclosed this to Mwebantu. Katongo reveals that the suspect later deposited amounts reflected on the duplicate receipts by purporting that the amounts deposited were the ones received when in fact not. She says it is also alleged that during the same period, Charity Sitwala failed to deposit revenue amounting to K216, 961.30 and stole government revenue amounting to K278, 651.30 which came into her possession by virtue of her employment as revenue collector at Lewanika General Hospital. “The suspect, therefore, engaged herself directly or indirectly into money laundering activities by laundering K278, 651.30 of government revenue,” says Katongo. She says that the suspect is currently on Police Bond and will appear in Court soon.
