The National Democratic Congress has commended President Edgar Lungu for firing Zambia Air Force Commander General Erick Chimense.

 

Party Secretary General Mwenye Musenge has called on the Anti Corruption Commission to Investigate General Chimense for allegedly involvement in corrupt activities.

 

He says this will help him clear his name from the accusations.

 

Mr. Musenge has told 5fm News that they have in mind the 62 million United States Dollars contracts for the supply of Military Uniforms that General Chimense allegedly single sourced on the 11th of August 2017.

 

He adds that they have information that General Chimense; single sourced a local firm, BHB contractors to supply uniforms to ZAF at an inflated price.

 

He says a Kenyan firm PURMA was ready to supply the uniforms at 14 million Kwacha.

 

In the meantime General Chimese has been replaced by major Genera David Muma.
