Zambia Police Arrests Fake Soldier In Lusaka For Defrauding Money


A 32 year old man of Lusaka’s Chazanga area has been arrested by police and charged with five counts of obtaining money by false pretences and for personating a public officer.

Samson Banda is also accused of having swindled five people of the same areas and collected K750 from each one of them except for one victim who paid K250.

Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo has reported that the suspect swindled the victims under the pretext that he was a Zambia Air Force (ZAF) official and would secure jobs for them if they paid him.

Katongo said the suspect was found with Military attire which he is purported to have been wearing to deceive people that he was a ZAF employee when in fact not.

And Katongo identified the victims as Douglas Musukuma aged 26, Paul Ndalama, 21, Bethsheba Mulubwa , 28, Naomi Mulubwa aged 24 and Martin Chanda, 25 all of Chazanga Compound.

She said the suspect is also likely to be slapped with another charge of possessing Military Uniform.

Katongo has since called upon members of the public who could have been swindled in a similar manner to report to Emmasdale Police.
