Written by Millennium on February 14, 2019
LUSAKA Businesman James Kasanga Chungu has dragged the Attorney General and Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) to Court over the seizure of his property on TwinPalm Road.
On Wednesday, (DEC) seized the assets claiming they belong to former ZAF Commander, Gen Eric Chimese.
DEC accused Mr. James Chungu of concealing property in behalf of former ZAF commander.
But Mr. Chungu said following the seizure of his property, he has presented the original true copy of his title deeds and copies of the agreement with the contractor who built the Executive Apartments.
He said Farm No 2303, Ibex Hill belongs to Chita Lodge and the Lands Deeds Register will show that the land belongs to him since 2008.
He also expressed concern that despite being the owner of the property, DEC has never spoken to him, or enquired him for verification.
He said the property has nine stand alone houses which he has furnished and rented for business.
The matter is scheduled in the Lusaka High Court.
