Zambia Sugar Plc has challenged the general public to come forward and provide evidence of corrupt practices at the company.
Zambia Sugar Plc corporate affairs manager Lovemore Sievu said corruption is counterproductive andÂ any member of the public with evidence of corruption should
be free to provide such information to the company.
He said this in an Interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today.
This was in reactionÂ to public complaints of tribalism and corruption in employing
workers at Zambia Sugar Plc.
Mr. Sievu explainedÂ that the company cannot employ everyone who applies for a job
adding that management ensures fairness and merit when employing people.
Mr. Sievu said the company gives first priority to workers from the previous season
when employingÂ because Zambia Sugar Plc employees work on a seasonal basis.
He added that the company does not encourage casualisation of labour.
On 30th March, 2007, there were complaints of corruption from some members of the
public in the employment of workers at Zambia Sugar PLC.
