Mr. Kambwili has states that once the matter in court is concluded someone will cry, saying some people will face consequences for all allegations leveled against him.

Recently, Mr. Tayali told journalists in Lusaka that he is the chief witness in Mr. Kambwili’s case, stating that he was ready to expose his corrupt activities in court.
