Government says it will not hesitate to discipline immigration officers, who are defrauding government out of huge sums of money through corruption.
Home Affairs Acting Permanent Secretary, James Mfula, the immigrations department
should work hard to overcome the perception thatÂ it is not transparent in its operations.
Mr. Mfula said this when he launched an official website for the Immigration Department in Lusaka today.Â
He said the facility would help the institution to curb corrupt practices and ensure
that erring officers are held accountable to both government and the general public.
The website has been installed at a cost of K1 billion with assistance from USAID.
And speaking ChiefÂ Immigration Officer, Ndiyoyi Mutiti, said the website would help
the department streamline operations and also to address queries from the public.
And USAID Zambia Senior Advisor, Jason Villa, reiterated against commitment to
supplementing government in fighting corruption.
