Published

on

THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has taken a step forward in its ongoing fight against corruption by launching a new district office in Serenje.

The strategic initiative aims at educating the public about the detrimental impact of corrupt practices in the district.

Speaking at a courtesy call on Serenje District Commissioner Paul Masuwa,ACC’s secretary and controlling officer Ivor Mukwanka said the commission is committed to spreading its anti-corruption mission in all parts of the country.

Mr Mukwanka said the commission’s expansion plan also includes opening an office in Chinsali following the separation of Northern and Muchinga provinces.

He explained that previously, ACC had a presence in all nine provinces, but with the addition of Muchinga, they needed to establish a new office in Chinsali to ensure comprehensive coverage.

“Previously before Northern and Muchinga were separated, we were in all the nine provinces. So when the provinces became 10, we remained absent in Muchinga until this year. So we have established an office in Chinsali for Muchinga province and for this side of the country, we have opened offices in Nakonde and here in Serenje,” he said

And Serenje District Commissioner Paul Masuwa pledged his full support in the fight against corruption within his district.

He expressed his commitment to the vision of a corruption-free society, aligning with the goals of President Hakainde Hichilema’s government.

“As you know the New Dawn  administration under his excellency Hakainde Hichilema advocates for free corruption society for the betterment of our people, so as a representative of the President in the district, I am equal to the task that corruption is not tolerated in the district,” he said.

The ACC delegates met with Heads of Government Departments, encouraging them to report any instances of corruption they encounter in the region.

The officers also stressed the importance of collective involvement in the fight against corruption for the betterment of Zambia as a whole.
