The Ministry of Health Headquarters was on Friday morning sealed-off by a combined team of officers from the Zambia Police and Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).

A check found the entrance at Ndeke House sealed- off with entry restricted as people trying to access the building were being turned away.

Uniformed Police Officers started manning the main gate at Ndeke House from 07:00 House while other officers were seen manning the main road leading to the entrance.

No entrance or exit was allowed at the Ministry of Health except for top officials such as directors and Permanent secretaries.

The Police and other security wings are yet to issue a statement on the search.
The Ministry of Health has been at the centre of financial irregularities with officials appearing before the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee failing to provide answers to some transactions.

On Thursday, Health permanent secretary Luckson Kasoka who was before the committee hinted that there have been invisible hands in the purchase of drugs and other medical supplies to the ministry.

This was coming a day after former Health permanent secretary Dr. Kennedy Malama and a senior officer in the purchasing department Wilson Lungu were arrested over a contract involving ambulances.

President Hakainde Hichilema has announced that Government will recover public assets from whoever is proven to have wrongly benefited

  5. UPND cadrerism on social media is so annoying.
    They want to stop people from speaking of what is wrong in this government.
    Mmembe is saying what more Zambians are thinking 16,000,000 people who didn’t vote either upnd or PF, but have no chance to express themselves.
    Cadres stop it, it is stinking.
    You are sinking your party let people express themselves it is their right don’t intimidate their views.

  7. EMBARRASSING HH IS ALARMING THE NATION. MOH UNDER SIEGE – FEELS LIKE MOH OF EMERGENCY
    State has Fallen, MoH has Fallen, Zambia has Fallen. State of Emergency?

    This kid [u5] is alarming the nation. What is he trying to prove? This Action movie is trying to portray that something is working 100 days in office.
    Oh! Is this how to work?
    So naive. He is trying to please the ruthless money lenders IMF and World bank – ifibanda that he is working. Hohohoho! This ACTING is nauseating.
    100 days in power and the guy is cipante pante.
    Don’t worry we’re already informed that he is a slow thinker. In doubt?

  8. You can almost feel the discomfort, disappointment and eminent anger of h² especially that ACC is under his armpit. His cousin Milumesi Suchula must be under extreme pressure. At play, this movie is taking a toll at h² seeing that the person h² thought was guilty is actually thinking he and his cousin’s ACC are the guilty ones here by suing it. It looks like Malama is also slipping away. This just proves to you that the man in office is truly u5 even at LAW, u5 at running the country as the directed haphazardness (cipante pante) looks set to describe his mannerisms. Let him think with his head not his vengeanceful heart towards one ethic group.
