Zambia nation recently received shock of the decade when FIC (Financial Intelligence Centre) revealed a mass money laundering racket. The nation is developing and there are various highs and lows of the nation. There are various government activities that have started in the past few years to improve the economic and social conditions of the nation. Similarly, industrialists and businessmen such as Dr. Rajan Mahtani are known for their dedicated work towards the growth and development of Zambian communities as well as economic and social enhancement. On the other hand, the nation is also filled with individuals who are only working to build their empire by abusing their power as well as political and social position. These individuals, groups and companies are the real culprits for the sorry state of the nation.

Banda from Avik International and Sakwiba Sikota from Central Chambers. Sikota is also the long-term legal counsellor for the Ventriglias.

The names in the list are majority high profile and it is clear that these individuals and entities have been using their power and position to escape law.
It has also been reported that majority of these individuals are laundering money for Edgar Lungu, the infamous President and Dictator.
