President Edgar Lungu has implored officers in the defence and security wings to desist from corrupt practices.

Speaking when he officiated at the graduation ceremony of the 18th Command staff course in Lusaka today, President Lungu urged the officers to be vigilant and see themselves as part of the solution to the challenge of corruption.

He says his Government has put a high premium on the fight against corruption and fraud.

President Lungu says unless the fight against corruption and fraud is won, all of government’s development efforts will be thwarted.

He states that it is therefore the duty of every responsible citizen to join in the fight against corruption.

The Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces says he is encouraged to see that the staff college has found space to interact with the Anti Corruption Commission and Drug Enforcement Commission to make officers aware of corruption and fraud.

And President Lungu has assured men and women in uniform of government’s desire to continue improving conditions of service and upgrading the quality of life of all ranks and cantonments.

He says government will continue with the housing project to alleviate accommodation challenges and will endeavor to attend to all other infrastructure requirements.

President Lungu adds that government will ensure that steps towards the construction of the new staff college are pursued vigorously to make it a reality.

  1. OUR PRESIDENT LIKES TO LIE TO HIMSELF. HOW CAN HE CLAIM TO PUT A PREMIUM ON THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION WHEN HE HAS MAINTAINED CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CORRUPT RB. HE HAS ALSO APPOINTED CORRUPT DORA SILIYA TO BE MINISTER OF ENERGY. RB AND DORA SOLD ZAMTEL CORRUPTLY TO LAP GREEN OF LIBYA. FURHTER, HE HAS MAINTAINED CORRUPT KAIZER ZULU AS ONE OF HIS ADVISORS. STATE HOUSE IS ACTUALLY STINKING OF CORRUPTION. YOU WANT TO START THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW AIRPORT IN NDOLA BECAUSE YOU WANT TO GET A HUGE COMMISSION BEFORE YOU LEAVE OFFICE NEXT YEAR. GIVEN THE POOR AIR TRAFFIC IN ZAMBIA THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN ULTRA MODERN AIRPORT ON THE COPPERBELT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE. WE DO NOT BELIEVE YOU ON YOUR CLAIMED FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION. EVEN THE OFFICERS YOU WERE TALKING TO DIDN’T BELIEVE YOU ON…

  2. Thats a good move ECL. Start with those Commanders on your left. They should cut unnecessary expenditure such as trips abroad when we have Defence Attaches to do their job. They abuse their men abd respurces by literally attaching them to their personal farms etc They allocate allowances to their wives for funny trips in the name of ladies clubs. Spme have even personalised Banquet Halls built using tacpayers money. When us soldiers have problems there is always no money yet when these generals are hungry they just help themselfs to the monies. Please ACC investigate how much is made by the Banquet halls in and you will be shocked its controlled by one person the wife and families were the main suppliers when building that same banquet hall. The President has authorised the fight…

  3. A Brig general was recently posted put to Chipata on demotion because he exposed a cartel where a wife of a certain defence chief was a ghost supplier during the building of a new banquet hall in Lusaka. He was boss of audit but when doing his job,auditing, he unearthed a stinking scam where the wife of this general was and is still being paid millions for materials she never even supplied. Visit this general and he will revesl more due to his honesty ! Wapya munzi.

  4. Let’s ask this lazy bum Edgar why he clang on to the Defence Ministry after he became president only to appoint a certificate holder opposition MP? Everything points to corruption …so this lazy bums utterances can only hoodwink a f**l

  5. …words alone amount to nothing…that just playing to the gallary…..empower them….give them good conditions and above all improve their salaries…it wont end corruption but would certainly reduce it…
