GOSH!ACB closes investigations on State House Chief Prince Kapondamgaga after he surrendered a Mercedes Benz he received from Sattar

KAMPONDAMGAGA: Returned the bribe

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has closed investigations involving State House Chief of Staff Prince Kapondamgaga after he surrendered a Mercedes Benz he received from businessperson Zuneth Sattar.

President Lazarus Chakwera suspended Kapondamgaga over a year ago, after the ACB named him as one of the public officials who allegedly recieved a bribe from Sattar.

But in a press statement the Bureau has indicated that it no-longer has issues with Kapondamgaga.

Reads the statement: “The investigations had established that Mr. Kapondamgaga, the State House Chief of Staff was one of the public officers who had received a Mercedes Benz S Class 350d and other gifts from Mr Zuneth Sattar.

“Mr. Kapondamgaga voluntarily gave a statement to the Bureau and signed a restitution agreement with the Bureau. At the moment, he has already surrendered the Mercedes Benz S Class 350d. After a review of the evidence against Mr Kapondamgaga in this case, evaluation of the information he provided in respect of the broader investigations relating to Zuneth Sattar and the restitution agreement he has voluntarily entered with the Bureau, a prosecutorial discretion has been exercised not to lay criminal charges against him. Accordingly, the Bureau has completed and closed the investigations against him. Pursuant to its powers under Section 10 (4) of the Corrupt Practices Act.”
