Zambia has been selected to the board of the African Union Anti Corruption Bureau at the ongoing African union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The anti corruption bureau acts as an advisory board to the African Union on fighting corruption.
QFM’s David Bweupe reports that the new board was approved by African heads of State and Government during the opening of 16th African Union summit which was attended by vice president George Kunda today.
Zambia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe are the three Southern African countries representing the region on the anti graft bureau.
Other members to the board have been drawn from the four other regions of the continent.
Vice president George Kunda is attending the meeting representing President Rupiah Banda.
The Anti Corruption Bureau was formed following the adoption of the African Union convention on corruption in Mozambique Maputo in 2003.
