Transparency International Zambia chapter (TIZ) has called on the World Bank to quickly release the names of former government officials in the MMD who received a bribe from Alstom Corporation of France so that the law may take its course.

The World Bank has stated that it will soon hand over to the Zambian government details and names of senior government officials in the previous MMD government who received 110 thousand Euros in bribes from Alstom Company when it submitted a bid to ZESCO to perform bank-funded rehabilitation work on hydropower systems at Victoria Falls in Livingstone.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Qfm, TIZ Executive Director Goodwell Lungu says it is unfortunate that government officials can succumb to engaging in corrupt activities.

He said it is therefore important for government to take corrective measures against those found wanting stating that such acts should not be entertained at any level of leadership.



  1. In 2002…ummmh ha…just when Levy was roasting Chiluba and lifting his immune system (immunity)…..nway tizamverako!

  2. Zambia is the Most Crazy Country in the Universe. This Wandi at ACC has been blowing hot air over this list ati she has it. But has not moved. This is typical Zambia. what has happened to Kapoko case, Katele’s case (the guy still out yet a convict and his case being delayed to make him stay out), RB has been let to GO despite hefty cases we were told he did!!!! Chinese were caught in Kitwe with stolen copper in Parklands and once shown on TV what has happened? Nothing. FTJ we were told stole, he has gone to the grave with the loot nothing happaned. Bloggers add some more.

  3. The president must do as other world leaders would do when there are crises back home while holidaying, RETURN HOME URGENTLY!
    The Barotse issue, the Botswana issue arising from his remarks that Botswana has only 5 shops. The Tswanas feel insulted and they have raised it in parliament.
    The president also has to clarify truthfully to the Zambian people the facts about his rushed trip to India because the ‘ wooing of Indian investors’ is not convincing. Come on Mr President the nation is waiting!

  4. The picture captured in this story ba LT is wrong. I can only see lawyers and the man on the right is a former LAZ president. Edit!

  5. The man on the right is Goodwell Lungu and to his left is Stephen Lungu, a laywer and former LAZ President.

  6. # 2 Mpangula Mpyutu. Any fight of corruption any where is good for society and rule of law for justice and fairness to the law abiding common Zambians. However, the fight of corruption is not done through hulla baloo populist wild allegations and public exciting news. As you correctly quote numerous allegations raised have had their time as news and logical conclusions are clearly absent. Even prognosis of justice is non exist and the public has continued to be choked with every type of issues now speading at region and international stage. I contend as always done that PF govt hasn’t got the capacity to fight corruption compared with the late Mwanawasa regime. There is no soul searching in PF and will not achieve their intentions with their type of approach in fighting corruption.

  7. A person essentially help to make severely posts I might state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page and so far? I surprised with the research you made to make this actual put up extraordinary. Magnificent activity!
