BUSINESS tycoon James Ndambo’s family have refuted media reports suggesting that the Zambian government had prevented his company from running the Kasumbalesa border post .
Media allegations have accused Mr. Ndambo of making illicit profits at the said border post .
But a family representative Mr. Fortune Ndambo said that Mr. Ndambo had no connection with the said transactions.
“Mr James Ndambo had no relationship or connection with Zambia IP Border Crossing Company (ZIpBCC) nor was there a contract or concession indirectly or directly with ZRA at Kasumbalesa border post,” he said.
He added that it has been a public knowledge over the past 12 years that a Jewish company operated the contract under discussion.
Mr James Ndambo is a Zambian born business tycoon based in South Africa.
In a statement from the family said Mr. James Ndambo never had a contract with Zambia Revenue Authority in Kasumbalesa.
The Ndambo family is flabbergasted by media reports published by some overzealous malicious online publication dated 2nd March 2023 purporting that the Zambian government had stopped Mr. James Ndambo through his company from running the Zambia Kasumbalesa border post where it’s alleged, he was making illicit profits, without defining the licit profits that presumably the publisher’s company if any, makes.
The family would rather the publisher confronts Mr Ndambo at a personal level if he has contentious issues to address as opposed to hiding behind non-existent contracts purely to attract public attention.
The moment you refer to someone as hurting the Zambians via illicit profits, why not channel such to institutions tasked to police such errant business houses or individuals?
