Vice President Inonge Wina (c) arrives at Mongu Airport yesterday for the Commissioning of the Connection of North-Western Province and Lukulu District to the Zesco National Grid.
Vice President Inonge Wina has challenged those claiming to have evidence on corruption in government to submit their facts to the Anti-Corruption Commission-ACC.

Mrs. Wina says some Members of Parliament and other stakeholders have been claiming to have evidence of alleged corrupt activities which they have not submitted to the authorities.

The Vice President says fighting corruption is not only Government’s responsibility but a responsibility for all citizens.

Mrs. Wina was responding to a question from Mafinga Member of Jacob Siwale during the Vice President’s question time this morning.

Mr. Siwale asked the Vice President what government was doing to people claiming to be in possession of evidence leading to alleged corrupt government dealings.

And Mrs. Wina says fighting corruption should not be used for political acrimony but endorsing sanity in the country.

She says President Edgar Lungu is addressing the current alleged corruption activities in public offices.

Mrs. Wina adds that this is why the Head of State challenged people with evidence in the procurement of fire tenders to give evidence to the ACC.

Meanwhile, Mrs Wina says Government has mobilised resources to address the prevailing influx of asylum seekers in some parts of Luapula Province.

Mrs. WINA says the continuous entrance of asylum seekers has remained a challenge but that government remains vigilant to address the problem.

The Vice President was responding to Kaputa Member of Parliament Maxas Ng’onga who wanted to know what measures Government has put in place to address the high number of refugees entering the country.

    • Mama Wina,

      I have respect for you. Please do not insult us with your comments. How many people have been convicted for corruption since you and Jonathan took over? Are you telling us there is no corruption in Zambia? The ACC are collecting their salaries every month for doing what exactly? You have largely stayed silent on this matter because you know your colleagues are corrupt. Rise above all this and just do your job quietly. Or maybe Jonathan has asked you to make a statement on this issue?

      We have had enough.

      Please tell your friends to pay back the money they have stolen, and leave office. They can take their wheelbarrows on their way out.

    • Its NOT us! Edgar Lungu said some of his ministers are corrupt are you now challenging your boss to take that information to ACC or are you saying he is lying like on many other things?
      Have you ever wondered why zambia is so expensive yet it is just another 3rd world poor country?
      Go to any boutique and look at the clothes on sale chinese poor quality but more than British prices. Why? people just put up prices anyhow. We expect a listening pro poor government to look into the concerns of the people. The fire tenders are too expensive the dual carriageway is overpriced what do you do instead? ask us to provide evidence!
      You are incharge! is this the best value for money?

    • A bad public relations stunt, if you ask me. We heard this from Chiluba when his ministers were being accused of corruption. But did the call for evidence and shielding of corrupt ministers help the image of Chiluba’s government? No, it did not. It showed lack of political will to fight corruption. Chiluba’s government lost so much popularity that when he tried to go for a third term people simply said they had had enough of him and showed him the exit. This is what is likely to happen to Edgar Lungu’s government because it has decided to become intolerant of opposed views and clearly lacks political will to fight corruption. We may ask how many cases of corruption have been prosecuted under Lungu’s rule. The the answer is clearly none.

    Q.2) WHY did Govt knowingly pay USD$ 1million to purchase each Fire Truck which in actual fact is worth only a third of that? Where did the change go?

    • This PF at best;
      Sources at State House revealed that Sata told Chikwanda on Wednesday night that it was easier for him to protect his uncle from possible prosecution while serving as Cabinet Minister unlike when he was an ordinary citizen.
      The source said President Sata has intelligence reports from the parallel structure on how Chikwanda, Bank of Zambia governor Dr. Michael Gondwe and his Deputy Dr. Bwalya N’gandu met some representatives of foreign companies at 8 Reedbuck a Lodge in Lusaka’s Kabulonga area before the tender was even advertised.
      The source said Sata used this information including reports that Chikwanda has interest in one of the emerging Copper Mines to blackmail Chikwanda and stopping him from resigning.

      The source said Chikwanda is also alleged to have been lobbying investors to invest in Appolo Park a company he owns at the detriment of government. Further, the President reminded Chikwanda that he influenced ZANACO to appoint his daughter in-law Chimango Chikwanda as Director of Human resources when the bank did not advertise the position and Chimango did not apply.
      Chimango is married to Bweembya Chikwanda who is commercial director at Lafarge Cement.
      “He told Chikwanda that his enemies in government can easily prosecute him on all these allegations if he was outside government as it would be difficult for the President to protect him and this is not the first time Chikwanda has resigned. He has before buy you guys did not pick it up” a source said.

  3. The best is still to report the issue to ACC to exert more pressure on ACC. Whether we like it or not ACC still remains a constitutional Body (at least for now) to deal with corruption in the country. Talking from outside will only amount to noise.

    • The ACC is probably THE MOST CORRUPT constitutional body in Zambia! They are getting their share of the LOOTING! All appointed by Jonathan to help him hide his STEALING!

      Why report corruption to them? Next you will be arrested on trumped up charges to keep you quiet! Look how Tyali has changed his tune since he spent a weekend in JAIL!

  4. ACC is PF just like the electrical commission. Evidence is the fear that you have. You don’t like to be criticized or questioned instead you use violence and bribery to suppress the opponents. Your culture of violence will consume you some day. Hinter thought he was a smart man. PF leadership, your end will be terrible.

Sometimes I wonder what the Supreme Court judges are doing nowadays. How did we really get here? May judge Chulu can help us answer this question.

  9. ECL has one of the easiest jobs of any head of state in the world ,he is not subjected to a question and answer session for the president in parliament, he does not do press conferences for a question and answer session he only answers questions prepared by amos chanda and rehearsed on arrival and departure at kki,smk or hmn airports.

It is not the duty of people to be frequenting anticorruptuon offices to tell them about what is in public donain. It is the duty of anticorruption to follow matters if interest that people have been talking about. We pay tax for DEC and Anticorruption Commission employees to get paid. Its not enough for them to sit in those offices and wait for Kambwili to go and tell them to wake up and fight corruption. We do not pay them to wait for President Lungu to instruct them to sort out Kambwili then they become active. Mama Wina, president Lungu is in no way fighting corruption but he has performed extremely well promoting and shielding corruption. Mama Wina, you are a respected Veep, do not…

Upnd claimed Maureen had evidence about ballots dumped in the bin but when matters came up Maureen refused never to have said that. Another good example is Kambwili who was being accused of corruption by upnd but when he got sucked upnd u turned and claimed ck is clean and they are now worshiping him. Gbm also was being exposed by upnd but he is their veep now a clean and corrupt free man. Who told us that someone rose from selling dogs on streets to minister. Bane lodge your evidence officially if you want acc to take action. Your claims is the same as police arresting a suspect without a docket been opened about that prison. Muyopa chani.

Makebi Zulu and his Advocates stealing of my motor vehicle and manufacturing vexatious suits as money laundering methods together with 10 other Advocates. Gilbert Phiri stealing of my Jeep Grand Cherokee and household goods in abuse and members of the judiciary stealing of my out door furniture imported from Austrasia,Mugabe all not been criminally prosecuted. Yet I sent a summons and Cgarge sheet to the DPP. They are immorally and inhumanely riding like insane or I be ice horses in my vehicles and they are not going taken to book.
