Former President's Son Jailed With Hard Labour, After he Stole a Mobile Phone

The former President of Zambia has had his name dragged through the mud after his son was found guilty of stealing a mobile phone.

Frederick Chiluba has now been sentenced to 8 months imprisonment with hard labour after he was allegedly involved in the stealing of a Samsung S7 edgewhich is worth $843 as at 2017.

Chiluba’s rule in Zambia from 1991 to 2001 was dogged by corruption allegations, leading to his immunity from prosecution being lifted after he left office.
He was prosecuted for alleged embezzlement in 2002 but acquitted after a six-year trial.

In 2007, he was convicted of fraud by a London court and ordered to repay $58m (£36m) in embezzled funds, but the ruling was never enforced in Zambia.
