Zambia CourtThe Judiciary says it takes great exception to remarks by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)- Director General, Nixon Banda, about Magistrates’ alleged incomptence in handling corruption cases.Registrar of the High Court, Mwamba Chanda, said Mr. Banda’s remarks on Magistrates were most unfortunate especially that they were made by a qualified lawyer.Ms. Chanda said administrative steps are being taken to redress the damage caused by the statement to the intergrity of the judiciary.

This is contained in a statement signed by Ms. Chanda and made available to ZNBC news in Lusaka.

Mr. BAnda said Tuesday that the state was failing to convict indivinduals involved in corrupt practices because Zambian Magistrates do not fully understand Corruption.

Mr. Banda said in many instances, the ACC has presented tangible evidence against some suspects but Magistrates have failed to convict the accused persons.

He said this in Kitwe when he addressed Councillors and heads of various Government departments.

  1. Indeed, washing dirty linen in public is an error on the part of the ACC director general, yet the message is clear: seeking assistance of the judiciary to ensure those brought before court are never allowed back home. It is the duty of every person in Zambia to go to extents of “whistle blowing” to ensure the vice of plundering public property is reduced if not comptely eradicated.

    The New Deal Government has made very good stridea towards economic recovery for our country and we should all learn to be protective of the few resources available by taking upon oneself prevent plunder. Incentives should be availed to those who report corruption so that the guilty may be removed from our “clean” society and taken to jail where they belong.

    The amount of K100billion reported missing ought to be investigated thoroughly as this can be traced easily since the trail is still fresh. There should not be any sacred cows on this investigation and the net should catch whoever is involved. No wonder many government employees seem to do well in comparison with private sector employees, even though it is common knowldge that wage/salary payments are higher in private. There should be a loophole, and could this be exposed by the K100billion investigation?
