Vice president Scott gives Police a dossier to probe a corrupt govt Official

Vice President Guy Scott this morning told Parliament that he has handed a dossier to the Police on a Government official he did not name for investigation.

This was during the Vice president question time. Dr. Scott was answering to a question raised by MMD Mafinga Member of Parliament Catherine Namugala who wanted to know whether the PF government has failed to report perceived corrupt elements in government as stated by Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba that there are corrupt elements in government.

But Dr Scott said the PF government was still committed to fight graft. He said he expects the Police to follow up the allegations against the Official.

The Vice president however accepted that there are corrupt elements in government just as they are corrupt elements in the opposition. He said Zambia is a country like any other country in the world with corrupt elements as part of the demographic.
