Government says the National Anti-Corruption Policy (NACP) continues to be part of the efforts that the state has put in place to effectively deal with corruption in the country.

Secretary to Cabinet Roland Msiska said the policy which is reinforced by the Revised Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012, provides for a cross sectional approach to the Anti-corruption crusade.

Dr. Msiska said this in Lusaka today in a speech read for him by his Deputy Peter Kasanda, during the launch of the National Anti-Corruption Policy (NACP) and integrity Committee (IC) Programme Evaluation reports.

Dr. Msiska said implementation of the NACP has been going on since 2010 even though the implementation period was adjusted to run from 2011 to 2015.

He further said the Implementation Plan (IP) for the operationalisation of the Policy was developed in 2010 and revised in 2012.

Dr. Msiska pointed out that IP provides for activities to be implemented by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) with the aim of minimising levels of corruption particularly at points of service delivery.

He said through the NACP, it was envisaged that the harmonised and coordinated actions against corruption championed through the policy would reduce poverty, improve citizens access to public services and respect for human rights, among others.

Dr. Msiska said mainstreaming of ICs in some public and private institutions, establishment of Code of Ethics and Service Charters and engagement of traditional leaders are some of the successes of the implementation of the NACP which would eventually lead to the achievement of the desired results.

Speaking earlier Anti-Corruption Commission Chairperson Justice Timothy Kabalata said the vision has helped not only in building a culture of integrity but also in stressing the need to reject and resist corruption in all spheres of governance.

Mr. Kabalata said the development of the National Anti- Corruption Policy and the subsequent establishment of the integrity committee programme is a demonstrable commitment by government to achieve good governance through preventing and fighting corruption in a much more coordinated and inclusive manner.

  1. Rubbish!!!
    Which policy? Mr. Msiska, instead of blabbing for the political benefits of your CORRUPT MASTERS, advise them to comply immediately with MANDATORY provisions of UN Convention and stop making useless cosmetic amendments to protect them.

  2. PF have become masters of corruption.
    Lungu has made sure all key players are compromised and in his pocket.

    Every key player is bribed and abuse of reasources is normal. As zambia does not produce anything it is the borrowed money they are stealing. as a result zambia gets deeper and deeper in debt.

  3. The MOST CORRUPT selective ineffective agency in the land, & mere rubber stamp for President Lungu’s whims, & wishes is The Zambia anti corruption agency.
    This [email protected] should be disbanded, as soon as this Government is changed, & thrown into the dustbin of history, in 2 weeks time.
    No President should ever have appionting/ interfering powers to such an agency again, otherwise its just becomes a feeding trough for Corrupt Belly cadres, to feast without checks/ balances on taxpayers money, similar to the “Chikwanda -Chama fraud”, which I sicerely hope they will answer for!
