The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) says it is still interested in appealing against the acquittal of Former president, Rupiah Banda.

ACC Spokesperson Timothy Moono says the Commission has already submitted their opinion on the matter to the National Prosecution Authority and is still awaiting the response.

He also says investigations into Football Association of Zambia -FAZ president, Kalusha Bwalya’s alleged 80 thousand US dollars bribery case has advanced.

Mr. Moono said the ACC is currently working with international organisations and investigating bodies on the matter.

He said other prominent cases that are still under investigations are for Mumbwa Member of Parliament, Brian Chituwo and former Zambia Railways boss, Muyenga Attanga.

Mr. Moono was speaking at the 2015 third quarterly briefing in Lusaka on Tuesday.

He noted that Zambia has made significant strides in the fight against corruption as can be seen in a number of indicators both local and abroad.

Mr. Moono said the World Bank, Moo Ibrahim Foundation and Transparency International Zambia are some of the institutions that have noted progress in the country’s graft fight.

Meanwhile, Mr. Moono said during the third quarter, 3 hundred and 87 suspected cases of corruption were reported of which 62 were investigated.

He reiterated the commission’s resolve to work professionally without fear or favour.

And Inspector General Stella Libongani says the police have advanced in its investigations on the leakage of information from state House and other public institutions.

Ms Libongani says the police will soon close in on the culprits that are responsible for leaking of confidential information.

She said progress has been made but however did not disclose much information to avoid jeopardising the ongoing investigations.

The IG said this in an interview with ZNBC news in Lusaka.

She also said that the service has already started investigating the leakage of the 2016 national budget.

  1. Zip it inept ACC! Dr Annie Chifungula told us about your incompetence’s to successfully conclude investigations, you just want per diems you “lack of a better term”

  2. Imwe’ ba Ch1mbwi ba A.C.C.
    DON’T RAISE OUR HOPES, when we are aware all you want is to Plunder & eat under the guise of investigating your crooked compadres. We know it will be another “Nolle Prosequi”
    Don’t worry these cases will be properly investigated, once we have a serious government in office, Atase’!!!

    • THAT ACQUITTAL STINKS AND ONE DOES NOT NEED TO BE IN LEGAL PROFESSION TO THAT THAT WAS THE MOST STINKING ACQUITTAL IN THE HISTORY OF ZAMBIA. ZAMBIANS INTELLIGENCE WAS INSULTED. JAILING HIM FOR AT LEAST TWO YEARS WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER BLIND-FOLD. THE WORST THING IS THERE’S NO OPPOSITION CURRENTLY IN ZAMBIA THAT CAN WIN TO COME AND PROPER JUDGE THE MISS-JUDGEMENT.

  3. Madam libonga dont worst yo time investigating pipo who leaks imfo de issue lungu is nt loved by any one so u can fire the state house bt imfo will still leak.ask RB

  4. The perpetuation of the cancer of corruption is an indictment of the failure of the ACC Body, equally as the degeneration of morality is on the failure of the Church.

  5. Interest has joined the other moronic Zambian term: POTENTIAL. They will be interested until we celebrate the 100th year of independence just as we have had potential for the last 50 years…

  6. GET THEM GUYS. BANDA IS A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT TO ZAMBIANS. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADVICING THE PRESIDENT ON MATTERS CONCERNING THE COUNTRY BUT INSTEAD HE HAS BEEN DANCING TO THE DONCHI KUBEBA TUNE TO KEEP HIMSELF AND HIS SON OUT OF JAIL. SHOW US YOUR POWER ACC AND WE WILL HAVE HIGH REGARD OF YOU INCLUDING KAMBWILI AND THE GOLF COURSE SAGA.
