Integrity Committees are aimed at fostering a corrupt-free environment in the public service

Share

The government has dispelled reports that Integrity Committees that have been formed in government departments and other line agencies are for witch-hunting.

Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Amos Malupenga says Integrity Committees are government programs aimed at fostering a corrupt-free environment in the public service.

Mr Malupenga clarified that the committees are not extensions of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) but mechanisms to promote proactive, preventive and pre-emptive interventions that promote integrity for effective delivery of services to the people.

The Permanent Secretary was speaking today, when he officiated at an Integrity Committee Workshop for the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Service attended by officers from the ACC in Lusaka.

  1. The formation of these committees is an acknowledgement that indeed there’s uncontrollable corruption in Govt and quasi Govt institutions. What will be the role of internal audit teams? The juniors are just emulating what their seniors are doing. Stop this pretence

  2. You can’t win with the childish upnd losers. For them they will complain about anything and everything. Does it surprise you that they can never win elections? No woman wants a man who constantly complains and loses. Its very weak and unattractive. If you don’t believe me then ask tarino who his wife is. You never hear him mention anything relating to a person in his life apart from few gay posts he has made in past

  3. What integrity is there with PF regime to foster rule of law, transparency and accountability. The regime is dogged with fragrant corruption everywhere in its existence as a government including flying Chinese flags in a sovereign state all because of corruption in high places of government. PF regime hasn’t got ant ray of integrity at all.

  4. This is what the citizenry looks for in an elected government, great accountability, responsible leadership and governance and the most signficant, an assurance of integrity and privacy, God Bless PF, God Bless Lungu!

  5. ‘Integrity Committees are government programs aimed at fostering a corrupt-free environment in the public service,’ this is such a mature thought process expected only by the PF politicians, HH and UPND can only bring trouble and chaos, they are not capable of such an inclusive thought.

  6. What a fine government, this approach of zero tolerance towards breach of integrity and then giving rise to corruption is highly appreciated by we, the people of Zambia.

  7. This should put all the speculation and fake news flared by the opposition to rest, neither these committees are there for witch-hunting nor playing preferential politics, they are there for the sole reason of giving an accountable administration to the country men and women.

  8. Once again, he promised us something and fully delivered on it, President Lungu is truly a charismatic leader with splendid leadership qualities and true love for the motherland and her sons and daughters. Long Live Lungu!

  9. The citizens will now get excellent and world-class service of delivery through these committees, a well-thought and well-implemented initiative by the government! A momentous step to promote proactive, preventive and pre-emptive interventions that promote integrity for effective delivery!
