President Edgar Lungu says government is committed to making Zambia a corruption free zone on the continent.

President Lungu said his Patriotic Front (PF) administration is committed to combating corruption and is working round the clock to ensure that the scourge is curbed from the country’s political, socio-economic and political landscape.

The Head of State said the fight against corruption must not be politicized and called on all stakeholders to join the crusade to rid the country of the cancer.

President Lungu said this today at the commemoration of the 2018 International Anti-Corruption Day held in Lusaka under the theme “United against Corruption”.

The event was attended by several Cabinet Ministers, Senior Government Officials, Members of the Diplomatic Corp, Parliamentarians, Civil Society organisiations, Institutions from the Public and Private Sectors, as well as the general public led by pupils from various schools.

The President took time to visit various stands of public and private institutions that exhibited and participated in the commemoration of the International Anti-Corruption Day.

He stated that consequences of corruption are that much needed resources needed for public service delivery are diverted from critical areas of socio-economic agenda to pockets of those perpetrating corrupt practices and stealing public resources.

The President said corruption has been recognized the world over as threatening the attainment of sustainable development and that no country can develop if it promotes and condones corruption.

The Head of State said Zambia will continue to collaborate with the international community to fight corruption because it deprives people in rural areas access to basic services.

President Lungu urged Zambians to use the International Anti-Corruption Day as an opportunity to reflect on their involvement and role in helping eliminate corrupt practices in the country.

“Let us reflect at personal level our involvement to fight against corruption, we must assess and know what we can do personally to curb corruption,” said President Lungu.

The President pointed out that government has devised measures and policies such as the Public Finance Management Act to tackle abuse of public resources and warned that people caught committing corruption and abusing public resources will face the full wrath of the law.

President Lungu has since directed the Anti-Corruption Commission to collaborate with other law enforcement agencies and ensure that culprits cited in the Auditor General’s report are quickly brought to book regardless of their political affiliation and status.

He observed that young people must be incorporated in the fight against corruption as they have power to influence social change.

Speaking at the same event, Minister of Justice Given Lubinda praised President Lungu for providing strong and exemplary leadership to Zambia’s anti-corruption crusade.

Mr Lubinda said President Lungu approved a ten percent budgetary increment for Anti-Corruption activities and is the only Zambian President to lead commemorations for the fight against corruption.

Speaking earlier, Chairperson of the Zambian Chapter of the African Parliamentarians Network Against Corruption, Cornelius Mweetwa called on government to be open and accountable in its governance and provision of service delivery to Zambians.

Mr Mweetwa said it is disheartening that public resources are being looted with impunity in government ministries and departments despite the existence of integrity committees.

And Transparency Zambia President, Reuben Lifuka said there is need to take an introspection of the achievements made todate in the fight against corruption which the United Nations recognized 15 years ago on the effects corruption was placing on the world and the need to curb the scourge.

Mr Lifuka said there is need to criminalize the perpetration of corrupt practices as they affect service deliver and sustainable development.

And United Nations Resident Coordinator Janet Rogan who was represented by Chief of Missions of the International Organisation for Migration, Marianne Lane said the UN System in the country stands ready to continue supporting and helping Zambia fight corruption.

Ms Lane said the UN is pleased with the roll out of integrity committees in public institutions and called for their strengthening to build a foundation of trust and network to fight corruption.

ACC Deputy Director Rosemary Kuswayo urged Zambians to treat the International Anti- Corruption Day as an opportunity to raise awareness on the dangers of corruption and the need to curb the vice.

    • HH is part of the problem….he sneaked into the State House late at night to discuss the outcome of the Concourt…..HH knew the outcome and he secretly discussed it with Lungu in exchange for huge and massive brown envelopes from the Chinese government….so just to let you know HH is just pretending acting like he is disappointed with the ruling…never trust a Politician

    • Corruption is a worldwide scourge, Mr. President and it comes in various forms. In the US it’s called lobbying and their millionaire consulting firms channeling their corruption through congressmen and congresswomen for pork projects.

      And these lawmaker benefit heavily during campaigns through donations. The American corruption is legal because they have limits to what can be done and what can’t be down through campaign finance laws.

      So, what you putting yourself to by promising zero corruption is a practical impossibility, that’s why the west has legalized it. It’s built on the premise of what’s in it for me which is the actual basis of capitalism and every country is a culprit.

      The Europeans are guilty of corruption, the Chinese are guilty of corruption, the Americans are…

    • Continued…

      The Europeans are guilty of corruption, the Chinese are guilty of corruption, the Americans are guilty of corruption, the Russians are guilty of corruption and so are more worse the Africans.

      What is important is to regulate corruption, change the verbiage if you like and call it lobbying like the Americans do but create laws whereby this same corruption (lobbying) benefits all parties especially the vulnerable.

      American corruption or to refer to what they call it here as lobbying allows companies to have easy market penetration because the corrupted congressman/woman who received campaign donations helps pass laws amicable to the companies that lobbied him/her.

      Take for instance, Gun Control in the US. The NRA corruptly encourages members of the house to pass laws based on the 2nd Amendment in return for campaign financing robo calls and other materials.

      In exchange, the NRA get to sell their guns which a different kind of legislation would deem illegal. All this is a win-win situation for all parties involved. What you need to focus on is to legalize your kind of corruption so money does not exchange hands but goes to parliament, local causes, campaigns in exchange for benefits ZAMEFA wants.

      So there you have it!!! Otherwise wiping out corruption the way you are talking about is not going to happen!!! Legalize it!!! What you are advocating for is so much easier said than done.

    • Brother B R Mumba, sr
      i agree with 100%….actually the west is even more corrupt just take a close look at whats happening to the mighty USA…..these Politicians always play chess…Trump and his team…Clinton,Obama and his Chicago Democrats, Russia, Saudi Arabia, China etc…..too much corruption and and even the UN itself…remember Koffi Anani and his oil deals with his son

    • Politicians around the world are all the same, they are a gang and its them against us…they care less about Sharon,Spaka, Mr Kudos,Jay Jay, BR Mumba sr, Nostradamus, Nine Chale etc….we just keyboard warriors and thats it….Trump and his gang are eating,Lungu and his gang are eating,Munangangwa and his gang are eating..and now it looks like HH is now eating secretly with Lungu and China when no one is watching

    • Lungu standing in 2021 means the end of HH’s political career but look how he reacted….like he is very ok with the Concourt ruling…all the noise HH will be making now is just to play on his supporters minds…otherwise the Chinese govt in conjunction with Lungu paid him big time….never trust a politiacian they are never loyal to their supporters

    • As usual JUNIOR is shamelessly throwing red herrings to distract everyone’s attention to the topic at hand.

      Look this coward Bo Lubinda and his fooools…who cares if the lazy sausage approves 100% increment ..we want policy amendments to fight corruption not window dressing.

    • Lazy Lungu comes to this event every year and every year he says the same thing (year before 2016 same thing)…last year the same picture Cornelius was wearing same red shirt ..Lazy Lungu said the same thing yet no one is being arrested. We have educated foooooools like BR JUNIOR above clapping without shame ….

    • “Education develops the intellect; and the intellect distinguishes man from other creatures. It is education that enables man to harness nature and utilise her resources for the well-being and improvement of his life. The key for the betterment and completeness of modern living is education. But, ‘ Man cannot live by bread alone ‘. Man, after all, is also composed of intellect and soul. Therefore, education in general, and higher education in particular, must aim to provide, beyond the physical, food for the intellect and soul. That education which ignores man’s intrinsic nature, and neglects his intellect and reasoning power can not be considered true education.” – Haile Selassie

    • B R Mumba, the American corruption you’re referring to is not the same as what happens in Zambia. In Zambia, money donated by foreign countries, meant for vulnerable people, disappears into someone’s pocket. It’s a system where you don’t get any service from government offices, unless you bribe someone. It’s a system where the police mount up a fake roadblock and begin to collect bribes from unsuspecting drivers. It’s a situation where Lungu declares that he has K3 million in 2015, and then a year later he declares that now he has K23 million , with no explanation as to how his assets increased so rapidly within 12 months. Is that what you’re encouraging, and saying that it should be legalized? If you say no, that’s not what you meant, then you don’t know what you’re…

    • … talking about. Better zip it up, buddy. We know to you Lungu can do no wrong, but spare us the fake comparison between Zambian corruption and American corruption.

    • B R mumba is looking for a job from lungu, or is he on medication ??

      Trying to hide or white wash corruption.

      Why don’t you go back to Zambia if Zambia is not rotten with corruption ?

      Some of us state categorically , the corrupt leadership resulting in too many suffering when we are a rich country , I can not live in…..

    • @Gay Gay, @Spooked & @Lie Fimo Fimo – let me break it down in the simplest of terms. In this life we are all lobbyists (corrupt) and self-interested. That’s why scripture for instance says, the heart of man is exceedingly wicked, who can understand it?

      Laws (legislative or statutory) and norms (spiritual, religious or biblical) are the only things that regulate behavior to make us do things such that while we lobby for our self-interested goals, we don’t end up being selfish and hurt other people but strike a balanced win-win scenario for all parties to benefit.

      The lobbyist husband lobbyied for great sex without looking corrupt or self-interested because it’s expected at that point. On the flip side, the wife is also lobbying for great sex by being a great wife, taking care of him with a hot meal, kid’s homework if he is away, keeping all household other things in place and vice versa if rolls switched. But overall they are both lobbying each other in a self-interested way that’s beneficial to them collectively.

      It’s a win-win scenario for both parties involved. Why and how, because societal norms are blindly being followed and without paying attention their individual self-interested goals are being met.

      Your own kids are evil maniacs skilled in corruption and lobbying. They know if they have to get the Christmas gifts they want or great and better tools than their friends, they have to keep up their grades and be in your good graces. Their self-interested objectives are met and your self-interested ego is scratched because you feel you have great kids.

      A win-win situation for both the parents and kids. The kids and the parents are following societal norms and the world thinks greatly of that household and nothing changes when you move to the macro level involving self-interested objectives between corporations, governments and those who run them.

      Corporations want their goods and services to penetrate any market because that’s the way they remain to be going concerns, otherwise they would go out of business. Governments on the other hand create laws legislatively or statutorily that control and/or regulate how businesses run and/or expend.

      Politicians have the legislative power and businesses have to be tuned to all legislative agendas to understand what laws or statutes would affect their bottom line. So, in a regulated environment lobbyists or to put it blankly “corruption” feel(s) that void to make sure both parties benefit.

      Now, here is the difference between regulated corruption and unregulated corruption. In the Zambian environment (unregulated), lobbyists carry briefcases and hand over cash to these politicians. So, only the politicians wins and those in their immediate circle. This creates a win-lose scenario because the masses lose out and only a limited few win.

      In the American scenario, money is not carried in briefcases, instead it is channeled through Super PAC. The corrupt corporations get the kind of legislative and/or sweetheart deals through corrupt politicians in a regulated environment. The corrupt politicians has enough money for his/her campaign for re-election to maintain political power and the corporations have what they want.

      But here’s where the entire societal benefits start. The Super PAC buy advertising time on TV networks and those businesses benefit from advertising dollars, employment is created as Super PACs have employees who pay taxes just like TV Networks and printing companies benefit by stenographing campaign materials, sales tax is collected, the entire economy booms during elections times and everyone benefits.

      It’s all corruption but one is regulated and creating the greatest good while the other is unregulated and creating the worst economic impact because ZRA doesn’t get to benefit, banks can’t even have large deposits because who’s going to deposit $100,000 in corruption money at Barclays in Lusaka?

But on the flip side the Super PAC or individual campaigns is going to deposit their $2,000,000 at Wells Fargo in San Francisco!!!

      One type of corruption is creating so much good while another type of corruption is killing everyone involved. I say, regulate the Zambian kind of corruption by paying campaign finance laws that allow for the reporting of such revenue.

      Teach him a little more meat that way he can think outside the box and make proper judgment calls like my son who has now given me two wonderful grandsons.

      Nobody is saying corruption is good for social upward mobility. If you know how to read, you will realize that I have condemned both kinds but I have explained how one is legal and socially acceptable and one isn’t.

  10. It is ‘amazing’ how people defend the indefensible by stating that even western countries like the UK and USA are corrupt. So it is alright for us to be corrupt? By the way, comparing countries that are wealthy and those that are poor should be made in the context of how much resources are lost that are due to the many. When you do not even harness enough in the first place, how much can you afford to lose?

    Using criteria partly linked to the above, Zambia is number 79 of the most corrupt countries in the world. Somalia is number 1. Botswana is 147, the USA number 163 and the UK 170. Assess that in anyway you may.

Zambia does not need id!ots like you

  12. Ba lungu we know that we are all tempted by money.The best is to come up with good ICT systems to help manage resources.It’s not easy to fight corruption but if u can come up with good systems in place everyone will be scared.embrace ICT. Those guys you have appointed for e-governance should help all ministries.Let them just not waste our taxes without implementing anything.They should come up with solutions in all ministries and councils.Technology is the way to go ba president.Give them target to come up with systems in all ministries.No time to just pronounce smart Zambia but be practical.Its difficult to fight corruption without embracing ICT systems.I rest my case bane!

  13. I love the way the Romans used to make people testify under Oath. There was no holy book to hold high.
    You simply put your hands on your own testicles and if you are proved to have cheated, you have them chopped and fed to the dogs! That’s the best way to fight corruption!

  14. A shameless corrupt liar who continues to insult the intelligence of the Zambian people. Corruption emanates and is propped from his office. All those individuals who have been identified by the FIC report confirm that State House is the doyen of corruption. I would strongly advocate for removal of his immunity so he can be tried for stealing from the poor people of this country. He is the same clown who is covering up for people like Dr. Miti and had the small fish like Kapoko and colleagues go to prison as sacrificial lambs.

  16. Hahahahaha!!!!!! You don’t have a government anymore sir. Chambia is now a state of China meaning our president since you and all your P bootlickers sold us out, is now Xi Jinping. The president of China.

    Don’t make us laugh with comments like that. We are now learning mandarin so that we can understand what our new president who was not elected but bought the country is saying to us these days.

  17. We’ve got a huge problem as a nation because corruption has become part of our culture. I’ve read people BR Mumba try to justify its existence and value. Unfortunately we’re talking about a poor country with huge natural resources being drowned by debt due to corruption by those meant to protect national assets and interests. The country has lost direction and checks and balances no longer exist. The president unfortunately can’t check or defeat corruption when his own government is the main protagonist, enabling lawlessness. There’s need for the constitution to be respected by all, before any change will happen. How can a country have no functional judiciary and Police, and be considered a functioning democracy? May be in B.R. Mumba JR’s world.

  18. This is like a puff adder saying, “let’s get rid of our fangs so that we can enjoy our meals”. Come on, you are not a puff adder without your fangs, nor is our learned great leader of this great nation is a president without his corruption! Sir, you can’t fight yourself.
