The Economics Association of Zambia has commended President Edgar Lungu for a firm stance he has taken against Corruption.

Association President Lubinda Habazoka says Corruption is one of the factors that influence foreign direct investment inflows into the country hence the need to decisively deal with it.

Dr. Habazoka said the President’s stance on corruption is sending a very good signal to the donor community and investors that Zambia is taking action to curb the vice.

He said the arrest of high-profile individuals among them the Former Zambia Airforce Commander Lieutenant General Eric Chimese, Housing and Infrastructure Development Minister Ronald Chitotela, Livingstone UPND MP Mathews Jere and UPND Sinjembela Member of Parliament Mubika Mubika should be supported by all well-meaning Zambians.

Dr. Habazoka has expressed happiness that stakeholders among them the British High Commissioner have noticed the efforts and commended the Head of state for the stance taken against Corruption.

He said the arrests have shown the commitment government has on the fight against corruption but has advised the Low Enforcement Agencies to be courageous enough to prosecute such people.

  3. Mubika Mubika it’s thievery, Jere it’s abuse of power, Chitotela ni corruption, abuse of office, fraud. Chimese ni corruption and fraud.
    Instead of blindly supporting the arrests, question for instance, why Chitotela was appointed by Lungu at the time when him had been fired by Sata and ACC and DEC where building a case against him.

  6. Who are the bu.ffoons who elected this Joker called Habafyoto. Don’t you have an impeachment provision in your Constitution to get rid of this Habafyoto embarassment. The respected Economics Association of Zambia has been reduced to a vuvuzela laughing stock … single handedly. This is not how you campaign for a job. This is sebana wikute. PF took over an economy whose GDP was growing at 7% in 2012. It is now growing at 3.4% and you are ululating !!!!!

  7. Parallel universe. I can’t see a difference between this guy and bowman. A true professional with good intentions will always attach a ” however” to alert those he is advising as to what they can do better. Those calling him a jobseeker may not be wrong!

  8. This guy speaks from his anus and is the worst human being to live in Chinasambia under the master corrupt individual lungu. Time will come when those like ape can be caged in a normal farm and throw the keys away. No wonder Zambia is cursed with these semi educated individual from Russia. I wish he was educated in Europe or USA. The organisation he represents he a worst possible scenario one could imagine exists

  9. You wonder where this guy lives, Zambia or Mars? Its amazing someone with a PHD and leading an organisation EAZ would openly lobbying for a job from Lungu. The level of desperation and stupidity of this
    gentleman is amazing.

    EAZ should impeach him if they are have any credibility on the affairs of the country.

  10. Delusion of grandeur to think that PF is fighting corruption. This is a problem when professionals have sold their souls on an altar of expedience. Their brains become eroded of knowledge and they turn into zombies. Most of these institution are run by puppets who dance to political relics. This nation needs intellectuals who will espouse their knowledge with integrity. It is quite disheartening to see intellectuals behaving like political cadres. We need a cadre of professionals who will articulate issues with magnanimity. It is pointless having professionals who fail to call a spade a spade instead call it a spoon. They are a disgrace and a mockery to a cadre of professionals. The fight against corruption is a delusion with such kind of professionals. We need think tanks on how to…

  12. While LAZ is busy urging Lungú to suspend chitotela this job seeker cum cadre is busy praising Lungú when in fact Lungú is still busy protecting chitotela by letting him stay in office and thereby giving him chance to hide or destroy all evidence in the ministry.

  13. With the real culprits of corruption, the “evil” servants being picked up and getting fired, the corruption fight has taken a new dimension. Gone is the era of open public courts of opinion. Under ECL we have seen the creation of the FlC, the president can’t pick and fire judges anymore. ECL is Institutionalising the corruption fight and those who wanted him to fail are not happy. Look at the comments above.
