MMD Chisamba Member of Parliament Moses Muteteka says the motor vehicle theft charges slapped on him are mere misrepresentation of facts.
The Chisamba MP was yesterday arrested for fraudulently and without reasonable excuse or lawful authority converted a Mitsubishi Canter Registration number ABX 3529 valued at 75 million into a personal property pretending that he had purchased it when in fact not.
Mr. Muteteka says he initially bought two vehicles, his personal vehicle worth 92 million kwacha and another one for the constituency, worth 75 million kwacha from the same source.
He explains that he consulted the constituency committee and decided to instead give the constituency his personal vehicle, which he says was in a very good condition because he wanted the best for his constituency.
In an exclusive interview with QFM, Mr. Muteteka says there is nothing wrong with what he did adding that the only misunderstanding is the swap that was made.
Mr. Muteteka, who is also MMD youth national chairman, has accused the Patriotic Front Government of twisting facts.
And Mr. Muteteka says he is ready to clarify the matter before the courts of law.
