ACC gets support from Transparency International Zambia over Faith Musonda’s Deal

Share

Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) has backed the stance taken by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to enter into a seizure agreement regarding the Faith Musonda matter.

TIZ said that it is of the view that had the Faith Musonda case been taken to court, it was going to take time to be concluded and chances are that she could have won the case because she would have hired good lawyers to represent her.

TIZ president Sampa Kalunga in an interview with phoenix news has also reminded those condemning the move taken by the ACC to enter into a seizure agreement that this law is provided for in section 80 (3) (a) of the Anti-Corruption Commission Act.

Mr. Kalunga added that the government should actually be commended that within a month, it has managed to recover K65 million, US$57,000 and a house worth about K6 million which were dubiously acquired.

He further adds that with the ACC not well funded and have a history of not winning such high-profile cases, it was only prudent that the commission entered into the seizure agreement with the suspect so that the assets are given back to the state.

  1. A pathetic reason given for that deal. Are you trying to say that the state has such useless prosecutors and lawyers or that the judiciary is still under pf influence?

  2. Section 80 of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012 should be scrapped from the Zambian laws with immediate effect!

  3. What a hypocrite nonsense. Any corrupt deal clearly now has the blessing of government. Edgar China Lungu is safe for the rest of his life and his horrible thieving son doesn’t have to hide anylonger for the grabbing of the four farms in Kanakantapa. And tomorrow I know how to handle it as well! Nobody will ever get me now!

  4. I miss Mtewewe YALI i think was his NGO, something like that. TIZ is New dawn VUVUZELA??? Stand for something imwe ba Ngwele.

  5. Poor reasoning… she could have hired good lawyers and could have won the case? Why can’t ACC also use good lawyers and successfully prosecute the case? In my opinion it means that the state doesn’t have a case at all except that this woman kept larger than normal amounts of monies in a house.

  6. SO NO CASE WILL GO TO COURT NOW ALL LOOTERS CAN RELAX NOW AND ENJOY MOST OF THEIR ILL GOTTEN GAINS
    THIS IS BAD NEWS INDEED

  7. Such sense1ess reasons given by the TIZ for the excuse not to arrest, prosecute and send this crime syndicate member known as Faith Musonda. Are there no competent State prosecutors out there? Come on UPND, you’re already acting like PF now. This is not what the Zambian people voted for. The Zambian people want to see criminals behind bars, and not you making some use1ess negotiations with them. What are the courts there for then, If you’re constantly scared that you risk losing the case by taking criminals to court? That makes no sense. UPND get serious or be a one term Party.
