The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) has said that it is in possession of names of senior officials from the previous government alleged to have taken bribes from the Alstom Company of France over a ZESCO contract.

ACC Director General Rosewin Wandi has however declined to name the officials stating that investigations on the matter are ongoing.

Ms Wandi told Journalists in Lusaka today.

The World Bank has slapped a hefty 9.5 million dollars fine on Alstom Corporation, a major French engineering company and blacklisted two of its subsidiaries, Alstom Hydro France and Alstom Network Schweiz AG (Switzerland), after it admitted to bribing a Senior Zambian government official.

Meanwhile, the ACC Director General has urged stakeholders to corporate with the commission by building relationships and reporting systems that will facilitate effective information flows with government.

Speaking in Lusaka this morning at the workshop for the dissemination of the report on the Anti Corruption National policy baseline study, Ms Wandi said doing so will ensure that the activities under the national policy are managed in a coordinated and more professional manner.

She said the main objective of the baseline study was to provide a comprehensive set of baseline data that is complete in order to remove any existing institutional obstacles in the implementation of the National Anti Corruption Policy.

  1. TIZ revealed details about this topic not too long ago. Nothing wrong about naming the wrong doers. Investigations must continue however, reveal the names so that the citizens can know who is behind the corrupion.

  2. THE CULPRITS WILL JUST RUN AWAY, YOU MUST ARREST THEM NOW. THE ISSUE IS ALREADY IN PUBLIC DOMAIN AND THOSE WHO RECEIVED BRIBES ARE ALERTED. DO NOT WASTE ANY MORE TIME. ASK SATA HOW TO GO ABOUT SUCH CASES, YOU MUST BE SWIFT

  3. MMD rubbish!! No wonder ZESCO is so deep in shit from MMD leaders and to shove it out will take years. No wonder they did not care about the prolonged load shedding. 

  4. hey liato must be a suspect that is why rb should never been allowed to leave zed,am very sure he knows whose in the scam.kudos to ACC but they should do more.take heed

  5. And you wonder why they accuse you of witch hunting…The World Bank has done the dirty work for you, served it on a silver platter…which you wouldn’t have done in a million years and you are still dilly dallying.
    Just arrest the crooks on the list, no back dealing and sly games as the World Bank knows who is on it!! 

  6. Naming is one thing.Acting is another.We have seen cases where “evidence” is dug from backyards but such cases have gone silent.The other day a poor 16 year old boy who hard carnal knowledge of a dog was even denied bail.Who told you that jail cells were made for the rich?

  7. Lock them up and throw away the keys,but don t bangle the case,take your time mum and make sure your operatives are not bribed too.

  8. that is rubbish, why with hold names of people that are corrupt, unless you are still investigating. It does not make sense with holding names of people that the named company has admitted to having bribed. If it were an ordinary mr musonda from the streets the name would have been mentioned. Why apply law so discriminatory and you are even appealing to the public to be reporting witnessed corrupt deeds. Fighting corruption has to be transparent. Yet, as we speak, the culprits are roaming the streets free of any charge. Besides if they are public figures, the public that put them into office need to know without delay, it is important. delaying, will end up making the same ACC officers to be compromised through corruption. I am not happy, let the names the names be published as released

  9. These vile disgraceful filthy thugs in the MMD are the reason you sleepy chaps experience load shedding today, next time you are in the dark call the [email protected]@rds. I can provide cellphone numbers

  10. These vile disgraceful filthy thugs in the MMD are the reason you sleepy chaps experience load shedding today, next time you are in the dark call the [email protected]@rds. I can provide cellphone numbers on request..

  11. If a French or SWISS admits bribing in another country they would be prosecuted in France or Switzerland. So do fool Zambians that any company admited there guilty. Then how many of those former government officials who where bribed are in the PF government? Or is it that PF only took the angels of the former government and left the corrupt ones to rot.

  12. @Me
    You were too young to remember anything, you were just sucking your thumb and creating wet maps  on your mattress back then.
    Go to sleep!! 

  13. SO, WITHOUT THE WORLD BANK ZAMBIANS WOULDN’T HAVE KNOWN THIS SCUM. ACC SAYS INVESTIGATION HAVE BEEN ON-GOING EVER SINCE. STOP THE INVESTIGATION. THE JOB HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU BY THE WORLD BANK. WHY STILL INVESTIGATE?

  14. @Peter
    There is absolutely not need to use the CAPS LOCK Button, everyone here can read and write;you’re not taking notes for yourself in your diary. Those vile thugs will face the music you watch this space. 

  15. HOW DO U REMOVE A COBRA CAUGHT BETWEEN LIVE ZESCO TRANSFORMERS? Wait 4 it to slither out and get electrocuted?!

  16. #15 I totally agree with you, and when Sata wanted to probe this he was sidelined hence in opposition….. please bring back Max Nkole and the TASK FORCE….probe everyone its your job no witch hunting as suggested

  17. You mean ACC had the names since 2002? by the way we are still waiting results for the Lexus vehicles,Gold scam,Mpundu Trust & ZRA scanners.

  18. Zambia is a most crazy country in the whole world. This case will die a natural death. This Wandi is just blowing hot air for nothing. Look at Kapokos case, look at cases involving Chinese that stole Copper and caught Red handed in Kitwe where are those cases. Look at Mr. Mitti’s case at MoH what has happened. In Zambia so many cases just die natural death. Look at Katele’s case. Nothing has been done up to now, the guy OUT. RB was allowed to leave Zambia to cool things.

  19. Mrs wandi, just say you’re waiting on the directive from Sata. What more investigation do you need? I’m sure the World Bank did a through investigation and you need to do is act on it.

  20. PF have to doctor the list first because some of the people on the list are in prominent positions under the new government
