Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) has challenged anti-corruption activists in the country to emulate the good works and passion that the late Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) Officer Wendy Mwachilenga exhibited in the fight against graft.
Ms. Mwachilenga was the first woman to walk a distance of 375 Km from Kitwe to Lusaka to raise awareness about corruption in the country.
TIZ Executive Director, Goodwell Lungu said all anti corruption activists should be dedicated in their work towards the fight against corruption and strive to raise awareness against its evils in Zambia like the late Mwachilenga.
Mr. Lungu said the late Ms. Mwachilenga had a passion, energy and enthusiasm in fighting corruption and has since challenged the activists to continue from where she has left.
He said she undertook a 375 Km walk in order to sensitize the Zambian public and the government on the gravity of corruption and the need to work towards eradicating it.
Mr. Lungu said her death has robbed Zambia of a gallant and illustrious person in the fight against corruption.
The late Ms. Mwachilenga died on Wednesday at UTH and will be put to rest in Mumbwa tomorrow. Body viewing will be at Lusaka’s St. Johns Hospital in Woodlands tomorrow at 09:00 hrs.
