Charles Mushitu, Secretary General of the Zambia Red Cross Society (ZRCS), was recently arrested for theft and money laundering of over K1.4 billion donor funds meant for water and sanitation projects in Southern Province. He was also charged with possessing an AK47 rifle without authority. TMushitu has been arrested together with ZRCS Finance Manager Sydney Chituta. In December 2011, the ZRCS refused to suspend the duo on the request of the Drug Enforcement Commission: “You have not provided us with details of how much money has been laundered, the donor involved and the project concerned. As far as the board is concerned it has not received any report of any project money that has been misappropriated in the Society as it has up-to-date working advance reports on all projects". Clearly a lot has changed since then!
