We’ve found evidence of corruption against former leaders – Scott

Vice-President Dr Guy Scott says the government has found prima-facie evidence of corruption against several leaders who served in both the previous regime of former president Rupiah Banda and the current MMD leadership.

Speaking in separate interviews with South Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) TV and on a live-radio programme on Channel Africa yesterday, Vice-President Scott said there was no witch-hunt in the corruption crusade the government had embarked on.

He said the discovery of about R5 million (referring to K2.1 billion which was found hidden at former labour minister Austin Liato’s house), and the over 2,000 bicycles that were found in one of the former ministers’ backyard was just a tip of the iceberg on the rampant corruption that took place under Banda’s regime.
