Vice-President Wina says Government has put stringent measures to fight graft, among them, the establishment of integrity committees in all government institutions.

Mrs Wina says corruption undermines the fabric of society and will not be allowed to take root in Zambia.

“Fighting corruption is not the job of government alone, this is because corruption takes place in both the public and private sector, therefore Zambians must take an active role in fighting corruption”, Mrs Wina said.

The Vice-President also called on stakeholders in the country to desist from sensationalizing and politicizing corruption issues, and giving the public a perception that government is not committed to the fight.

“In fact most of the online issues you hear about corruption in Zambia, this leader or that one is corrupt are often sensationalized and politicized,” Mrs Wina said.

The Vice President said she cannot deny that there are corrupt elements in both government and the Private sector, and encouraged the law enforcement wings to heed President Lungu’s directive to be proactive in investigating and prosecuting cases.

And Mrs Wina observed that the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) is an important institution government is using to fight corruption in government ministries.

She however regretted that the FIC broke government procedure in disseminating the 2017 trends report to the public before availing it to relevant authorities that are obligated to investigate and prosecute financial crimes.

Mrs Wina also said Zambia supports the African Union Agenda of fighting corruption as a means of attaining sustainable growth.

The Vice-President added that Zambia will, during this AU summit, look forward to seeing concrete agreed positions by African leaders on how to fight corruption.

She was speaking when she made a stop over in Addis Ababa before proceeding to Mauritania for the 31st AU Heads of States and Government Summit.

President Edgar Lungu has delegated the Vice-President to represent him at the Summit that is being held under the theme “Winning the fight against corruption, a sustainable path to Africa’s transformation”.

    • This call to fight corruption is empty and hypocritical. Is she not aware that her boss, Lungu, is the most corrupt himself? Investigating him for corruption is where we need to start from. But obviously she knows that it won’t happen–at least for now.

    • Sorry mate. I have to doubt Inonge Wina’s honesty. There is no way she can be unaware of all this corruption in the PF govt. I have no evidence of her involvement but her ethics have to be doubted till proven straight.

    • That’s so true. The only way to be on track is to arrest Lungu and the rest of his corrupt cabinet. Then return all monies stolen…starting with the money from the purchase of the firetrucks….

    • Traffic police… those in charge of enforcing law an order on our roads. You know that story well. We do too. So does the rest of the world.

      So long as we see them, whatever you say about corruption is… a fairy tale.

  2. The public should be the first to know when FIC issues the report otherwise the report could be distorted or manipulated by the perpetrators of misuse of public funds.Afterall the public are the real owners of those funds. I agree that Gogo Inonge Wina is an honest woman serving in a wrong regime.

  4. This is most painful epoch in the history when its led a most self – destructive regime in the name of PF. This pitiful woman who should be calling others in cabinet wants to play lip – service to corruption and have us believe they are fighting the scourge when they are in the forefront perpetrating the vice. Woe unto them for stealing from the poor!

  5. @street kid… you are spot on! After Mugabe, when those corrupt cops were finally cleared off the streets, it was one of the most talked about things in Zimbabwe. A sense of sanity was restored

  6. Where are the stringent measures and integrity committees, when Attroney General is rampantly and corruptly defending constitutional violations and his advocates are conspiring with court Marshals to remove a suit in which I sued the State and more than 20 Defendants, lawyers nd state officials for rampant corrupt practices and improper use of the judiciary for corrupt practices, Racketerring and money laundering acts. Let her show me where the integrity committees are so that I take my grievances yo them. We demand the resignation of Attorney General and removal of all the corrupt lawyers Nd court Marshals they induced from yhenCourts and from them to be debarred from further practicing law. Where are the integrity committees when unprofessionalism is the order of the day….. Bo…
