Faith Musonda is one name that trended for the better part of 2021 following her infamous arrest.

In case you somehow missed the whole story, here is a summary- in December 2021, renowned journalist Faith Musonda was arrested by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) after it was established that her multi-million mansion had been allegedly acquired from proceeds of illegal activities. She was also found in possession of millions of money in her house that she could not account for and both her house and the money were confiscated.

During Faith Musonda’s case investigation, her entire life was laid out in public and we got to see the ins and outs of her house, her multiple identities, her career, her history and a little glimpse into her personal life. 

However, despite her dirty laundry being aired out in public, one thing that remained a big mystery was the identity of Faith Musonda’s husband. Let’s take a look at who the mysterious Faith Musonda’s husband is, her children and where she currently is.

Following her arrest drama, a few publications came up with the notion that Faith Musonda was allegedly former president Edgar Lunga’s mistress and baby mama and that her arrest by president Hichilema's government was a crackdown on the former head of state’s corrupt allies.

Like the story about her pregnancy, this speculation has also neither been confirmed nor verified by the retired president nor the journalist.
