FROM: KENNETH KABILA
44 OXFORD STREET
This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have
not yet met. The message could be strange but reel if you pay some attention
to it. I could have notified you about it at least for the sake of your
integrity. Please accept my sincere apologies. In bringing this message of
goodwill to you, I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any
I am Mr. Kenneth Kabila, the brother to late Laurent Kabila President
of Congo DRC who was assassinated on the 16th of January 2001 by one of his
military aides. I managed to get your contact details through “The World
Business Journal”, a journal of the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce in
South Africa in the time I was desperately looking for a trustworthy person
to assist me in this confidential business.
On the 17th of May 1997, my late brother,the President Laurent Kabila
took over the power after toppling the previous dictator, the late President
Mobutu Sese Seko.
After officially taking over as Head of State on the 29th of May 1997,
my late brother, President Desire Laurent Kabila, a former rebel leader met
with some Tutsi factions from the region of Goma, East of the country with
the assistance Rwandese, Ugandan and Burundese forces.
my late brother, President Laurent Kabila made me in charge of
purchasing armaments in the Republic of South Africa for an amount of
US$28.5 MILLIONS (Twenty Eight Millions Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) in cash. That amount of money was transferred in South Africa
through diplomatic channels. After his death, being in Johannesburg, South
Africa, I decided to keep that money for personal use. At present the money
is kept in a Security Company in Johannesburg.
I am currently and temporarily living in Johannesburg while waiting for
the appeal lodged by lawyer on my behalf to the Department of Home Affairs,
for my refugee status’ application.
I am having difficulty getting the money out of South
Africa because the South African monetary policy is not favorable to people
like myself who have no permanent residence status. Moreover the political
climate in South Africa at the moment being so sensitive and unstable,
investing here would only limit my chances and reduce my opportunities.
In acknowledgment of executive powers and the various business
opportunities in your country, I am requesting your assistance in
helping me transfer this money in your personal or business account. After
the transfer is accomplished, I will then follow you for subsequent
investments there. For your assistance in this transaction, I offer you 25%
of the total sum for compensation.
And all other expenses you incur during this operation will be
credited to you. If you need further details concerning this business,
please do not hesitate to contact me. All documents concerning this
transaction and money will be available to you on request I must then
emphasize that this operation or transaction is highly confidential and is
to be kept as such. If this proposal is of interest you, please
provide me with private phone and fax numbers ,and you can call me on this
my phone number for more details .
