The Anti-Corruption Commission has referred the matter in which the officials at the Zambia National Farmers Union have been accused of plundering 34 million to the Drug Enforcement Commission.
ACC Spokesman Timothy Moono told Journalists that the Commission received a complaint over the matter but that after assessing the complaint, it was discovered that it bordered on money laundering and theft.
“Yes we received a complaint regarding the alleged abuse of office authority at the ZNFU but after we carried out our assessments, we then referred it to DEC because it borders on money laundering and theft for further action,” Mr Moono said.
An audit at ZNFU has implicated the Board in the plunder of K 34 million through loans and other inducements.
The Board through its Vice Chairman Richard Lisimba has since rubbished the audit report.
