United States Ambassador to Zambia, Daniel Foote has said that law enforcement agencies should bring to book all those cited for corruption.
Reacting to President Edgar Lungu’s address during the official opening of the 3rd session of the 12th national assembly where he indicated that fighting corruption is top on his Administration’s agenda; Mr Foote says President Lungu has clearly shown his commitment towards the fight against corruption.
He says the law enforcers must investigate and persecute those that are engaging in corrupt activities regardless of their positions in government and their party affiliation.
And the US envoy has noted the expansion of the media to rural areas through digital television.
Mr. Foote hopes that this will be followed by the enactment of the access to information bill.
