Probe of $103m overpayment blocked in Zambia

State House officials have allegedly blocked law enforcement agencies from investigating how Dalbit Petroleum of Kenya overcharged Zambia with US$103 million for the oil it supplied.

It is claimed by people close to State House that President Edgar Lungu’s Assistant for Political Affairs Kaiza Zulu, State House Permanent Secretary Emmanuel Chilubanama and Lucky Mulusa are part of the deal. The three are said to have blocked the investigations, as it is believed that they received part of the inflated ‘profits’ as kickbacks from Dalbit Petroleum.
