Police are looking for a man only identified as Goodson Mutemela of Lusaka’s Zani Muone area for the offence of theft by servant.
The suspect, who was employed as a driver for Zamfast Logistics Group Limited of Lusaka, is alleged to have stolen copper concentrates worth US $80,280.15 property of Zamfast Logistics.
It is alleged that on December 28, 2022 the suspect was assigned to ferry the consignment from Kasumbalesa through Lusaka enroute to South Africa.
On December 30, 2022, the suspect was alleged to have disconnected the vehicle tracking system and switched off his mobile phone and police were alerted and immediately instituted investigations into the matter.
Police officers later discovered the Shacman Truck registration number AIC 1642 and trailer number BAL 2889 abandoned without the consignment along the Ndola – Kapiri-Mposhi Road near Kafulafuta weighbridge with the keys in the ignition.
“Police have continued with investigations. We appeal to members of the public with any information which may lead to the arrest of the suspect to report to any nearest police station,” says Danny Mwale, the Deputy Police Public Relations Officer.
