Kabimba reiterates govt’s commitment to fighting corruption

JUSTICE minister Wynter Kabimba says the government will continue holding to account those that served in previous governments.

And Kabimba says President Michael Sata will not punish those that vilified him in the run-up to the 2011 general elections.

During the United Church of Zambia synod executive meeting yesterday, Kabimba said it was the government’s resolve to fight corruption.

“This has therefore remained as one of our resolves in promoting good governance and holding to account those who serve or have served in public office in the past. Corruption is not only a vice but a sin as it deprives our citizens of benefits in the social and economic sphere of their national development,” Kabimba said.

He said lack of drugs and facilities in health centres lead to untimely deaths of innocent children.

“The Church must be unequivocal in its condemnation of corruption and abuse of power by those entrusted with such power on behalf of our people.
