ACB justifies delay in arresting Chaponda

Written by  Jane Kaonga Mar 10, 2017

The Anti Corruption Bureau-ACB is defending its move not to effect arrests on officials implicated in the ADMARC maize scandal.

Officials of the Bureau claim that they are yet to finalise analyzing data obtained from the houses of those implicated.

The Bureau raided the houses of former Agriculture minister George Chaponda, and senior ADMARC officials who are at the centre of the scandal.

They are alleged to have indulged in dubious activities in a botched maize deal with a Zambian broker Kaloswe Commuter and Courier.

34.5 Million dollars was used, though ADMARC could have spent only 21 Million dollars had it procured the grain through the Zambian Government.

Over 170 Million Kwacha was found at Chaponda’s house, both in local and foreign currency.

The public continue to raise concern on why the bureau is taking long to effect arrests.

Senior Public Relations Officer for the Anti Corruption Bureau Egrita Ndala emphasizes that the public should be patient and let the bureau do its work.

“The public should know that the matter involving Uladi Mussa is one that we received in September 2015 we conducted investigations and that is why we took him to court” said Ndala.
