Police arrests 26 years old man for scamming over 50 people in Chongwe

 POLICE in Chongwe have arrested a youth for allegedly scamming residents from five districts out of their monies on the pretext that he had goods for sale.

Aaron Silwamba, aged 26, who was on the run but was apprehended in Chongwe, has since been surrendered to Kafue Police Station, where he is also alleged to have scammed members of the public.

The suspect has allegedly swindled about 50 members of the public in Choma, Maamba, Mazabuka, Kafue and Chongwe.

Zambia Police deputy spokesperson Danny Mwale said police received the report and have since identified the suspect as Aaron Silwamba, a Matero resident.

“This suspect was arrested in Chongwe for scamming a Chongwe resident K10,000. He has since been formally charged and arrested and since been surrendered to Kafue Police Station, where he is facing similar offences,” he said.

Isaac Tembo, a resident in Choma, said two months ago the suspect advertised on social media that he had a plot to sell at K30,000.

He said because he was in dire need of land, he decided to get the phone number and phoned the suspect.

“I called him, we went together to check the property and I paid the money.

He promised to give me all the necessary documents for the land but he blocked me and later changed his phone number,” Tembo said.

Another victim, Majory Bwalya, who lives in Mazabuka, said three months ago the suspect posted on social media that he had a company which allowed people to invest money and after a month the person could get back the money with an interest of 30 percent.

“I got interested. I met him in person and I invested K50,000. When it was time to get my money with interest, the suspect blocked me. I tried calling him using a different phone number, but it went off,” he said.

Ms Bwalya said the money which she invested was meant for her to start up a business which was supposed to be her only source of income.
