    Former Zambian Finance Minister Katele Kalumba has been convicted of corruption.
    A court in Lusaka jailed him for five years with hard labour in connection with irregular payments of $25m (£17m) to two American security firms.

    The offences were committed during the 1991-2001 presidency of Frederick Chiluba.
    Mr Chiluba himself was acquitted of corruption charges in 2009 after a six-year trial.

    On Wednesday, six other people, including former officials in the finance ministry, were also found guilty of corruption.

    Mr Kalumba and his co-defendents had denied the charges against them.
    It was not immediately clear if they planned to appeal.

    Ndio maana nafagilia Uchina, wanaeka threshold ya ufujaji kwenye mali za umma, ukizidisha kile kiwango tu, wanafuta DNA zako kwenye uso wa dunia. Sasa hii ya Zambia unaeza kuta jamaa anafungwa miaka yake hiyo kwene VIP cell akitoka harejeshi hata senti moja. Ndo ntolee hiyo.

    Hakuna kitu hapo. Hukumu kubwa kuliko zote walipaswa kurudisha hizo fedha na interest yake. Ni usanii mtupu. How do you know watawekwa ndani na si kutoroshwa kwenda Bahamas kula bata?

    Kufungwa bila kurejesha pesa haifai! Kama ikionekana alifuja kiasi kwamba hawezi kurejesha basi hukumu yake pia iwe "death by hanging"
