Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) deputy director Reyneck Matemba confirmed Odillo and two other former senior army officers are appearing in court on Thursday.

Odillo was arrested last year on allegations he sanctioned for the purchase of military equipment and paid for it but the equipment never arrived at the army barracks.

“We have concluded all the investigations on this 7 case file, this is why we are able to take him to court,” he said.

Matemba said it will be a speedy trial because the state is well prepared for the case.

What flies must one day land. This is Odilo’s hour to face the law. A sad ending to a glorious career. This is a lesson to many of us. Greed is not good.

Ha ha how can a whole Army General with all the perks associated with that position sink so low to start facilitating payments to swindle government? The reeks of rottenness of the highest order. Paja amati somba imawola kuyambila kumutu. Probe more how the Presidential jet was sold off? Probe more how and why so many top ranking Government officials were involved in embezzlement of cash who was sanctioning all these PSs? Army Generals? nanga ku Police bwanji? poti ma audit report akusonyeza kuti kunali chisembwele chogula ma uniform osapangidwa delivery? Kumeneku kusesedwa liti??
