  2. Leaving grandmasters of corruption going for a petty thief of a woman.

    Things are tough and for a woman to engage in such acts shows how hot life is there.

    Before you throw her in jail give a fair trial and compare the cases with that of Chilufya Chitalu.

    PF must go!

  3. @ Kwato, ACC can prosecute other crimes too.
    They should, however, investigate the people who paid that money, that was the corruption in my view.

  4. ACC flexing muscles on a small time con-man, Meanwhile FIC reports are being ignored because the big fishes are seriously implicated.
