Handbook on corruption to be launched

General News Handbook on corruption to be launched

Africa Parliamentarian Network Against Corruption (APNAC) Zambia Chapter says progress has been made towards the launch of the hand book on corruption for Parliamentarians.

APANAC Zambia Chapter chairperson Given Lubinda disclosed to ZANIS in an interview that a lot of work has been done on the book scheduled to be lunched next month.

Mr Lubinda who is Kabwata member of parliament, said the hank book will empower members of parliament with vital information on how to identify corruption at any stage and report such cases to relevant authorities.

Mr Lubinda stressed that the fight against corruption is a complex matter which needs law makers to be equipped with relevant information.

The Mp said he hopes the Handbook would eventually assist in coming up with the code of ethics for Zambian Parliamentarians.

APNAC, established during a regional seminar on “Parliament and Good Governance in 1999, is a network that aims at coordinating and strengthening the capacity of African Parliamentarians to fight corruption and promote good governance.

APNAC objectives includes building the commitment of Parliaments to exercise accountability, with emphasis on financial matters, sharing information, best practices and to sensitize, educate and make the population aware of the existence, threat and dangers of corruption.

The launch of the Handbook is among the many activities that APNAC has lined up for this year adding that the organisation in collaboration with other agencies was working towards the official launch of the National Anti – Corruption Forum.

Mr Lubinda said the forum has brought on board law enforcement agencies, church and the civil society so as to strengthen the fight against corruption in a coordinated manner.

And Mr Lubinda says APNAC is scouting for resources to send a delegation to this year’s United Nations Convention against corruption to be held in Bali , Indonesia.

He said Zambia is to make a presentation on the role of parliamentarians in the fight against corruption.

  1. I would very much love to read this handbook…..because corruption is such a complex phenomenon….it is practiced worldwide in all circles of life. e.g Americans are very good at ‘tips’ its their way of appreciation.

  2. PRESUMABLY THE MPS WILL LEARN HOW TO DO IT BETTER, AND PERFECT THE WAYS OF CORRUPTION. SAVE US FROM THIS HANDBOOK.
