TIZ writes ACC over Kabimba, GBM clearance

TRANSPARENCY International Zambia has written to the ACC seeking clarification on the clearance of Wynter Kabimba and Geoffrey Mwamba of corruption-related allegations.

In a letter to Anti Corruption Commission director general Roswin Wandi, TIZ has asked for, among other things, justification for the clearance of Kabimba who is justice minister and his defence counterpart, Mwamba.

TIZ has stated that it recognised that the hallmark of any successful anti-corruption programme lies in the transparency and sincerity with which all cases of corruption were handled.

“We recognise that the ACC made a public statement when these investigations were launched and the allegations were laid bare to the public. It will be important that in the same vein the ACC informs the nation if at all the two ministers have been cleared and the justification for such a clearance.
