President Michael Sata has with immediate effect dissolved the Road Development Agency-RDA.
And the President has directed the new Police command to immediately stop the Zambia Revenue Authority -ZRA- from paying K4billion kwacha to a fake company managing the scanners at Nakonde border post in the Northern Province.
Meanwhile, President Sata has announced reforms in the police service with all Division Commands to be run by personnel with the rank of Commissioner of Police.
The President was speaking Tuesday morning when he swore in New Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs Max Nkole and Deputy Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani.
Mr Nkole once served as Executive Chairman at the Task Force on Corruption before its abolishment.
And Ms Libongani was until her new appointment Central Province police commanding officer.
President Sata also disclosed that -ZRA- was on Tuesday expected to pay K4billion kwacha to a fake company which the President says belongs to someone who occupied his office.
Mr. Sata has directed the new Home Affairs Permanent Secretary and the new Police command to stop the payment and investigate how much has already been paid out to the bogus firm.
And president Sata has directed ZRA to find its own people to manage the scanners at Nakonde border.
In dissolving the RDA, the President said it is surprising that the road agency awarded some contracts without tenders and made payments with unknown source of funding.
