  1. Everyone denies there is corruption or they are stealing even when their conscious does not agrees with them.

    PR stunts

    • You are right no one has ever agreed that they have stolen or even when they are caught ready handed they still refuse. Umuntu alishupa bane.

  2. If there is anything I can stand by it is the integrity of Bernard Chiwala the CEO of RDA. He is a very upright and God fearing man in the very real sense unlike some few other pretenders. If he says there has been transparency since he took over the realm of RDA, I believe it to be the case.

  3. No one in zambia has ever accepted corruption, even those who have been caught in the very act deny it. We know there are a lot of kick backs in such deals, just after the projects you will see what chiwala will have in terms of assets as compared to his current incomes. PF is equally corrupt and I did not know but am now seeing.

  4. So is he assuring us that there have been no single sourcing of any road contract? Or is he simply not aware of any?
