The Lusaka Regional Immigration Office has charged two Zambians, Timothy Kampamba ,26, of Kapiri Mposhi and Abraham Mulenga, 30,  of Lusaka’s Lilanda for impersonating a public officer, contrary to section 102 of the penal code chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.

The regional immigration office was alerted to the duo’s illegal activities on 7th May, 2024, when an alert member of the public called to establish whether the office was conducting an operation in Barlastone Park area.

Department of Immigration Public Relations Officer Namati  Nshinka says officers rushed to the scene where they found the suspects in Police custody.

Mr. Nshinka said that investigations revealed that the individuals had been raiding foreign owned shops, presenting themselves as immigration officers to extort money from unsuspecting foreign nationals.

“Timothy Kampamba was in a full immigration uniform and was found with fake immigration identity cards, a fake office of the President identity card, K1,000 and 3 cell phones,” said Mr. Nshinka in a statement issued to RCV News in Lusaka today.

He said that Abraham Mulenga was driving a Toyota Corolla Vehicle Registration Number ABZ 504, that he used to commit the offence and was found with one cell phone.

Mr. Nshinka said that the Vehicle has been impounded and all items found in the suspects’ possession confiscated to assist with investigations, adding that the suspects are detained pending prosecution.

Meanwhile, Mr. Nshinka said that  the Department of Immigration in Lusaka has charged a 30-year-old Zambian of Lusaka’s Vorna Valley, Lawrence Musonda Chileshe, with illegal consultancy and uttering a false document contrary to the Laws of Zambia and section 352, of the Penal code chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia, respectively.

He was arrested on 30th April, 2024 at Immigration headquarters, following investigations into allegations that he conducted the profession of an immigration consultant when he obtained a sum of K 7,000, as payment for submission of an application for a study permit on behalf of a named Congolese Student.

Mr. Nshinka said the suspect is on Police Bond pending prosecution.
