We cleared Grandview – ACCBy Mukosha Funga on 29 Sep 2017
The Anti Corruption Commission says investigations into the purchase of 42 fire tenders for $42 million revealed no irregularities.
In a statement today, acting ACC spokesperson Pastor Dorothy Mwanza however invited those with evidence of corruption to come forward.
“The Commission has noted the concerns of the public in the media regarding the procurement of 42 fire tenders, and the construction of the Lusaka-Ndola dual carriage way. The concerns revolve around the costs involved as well awarding of the contracts. Media reports on this matter have led to calls for investigative wings to investigate these matters. The Anti-Corruption Commission wishes to make it known to the public that in 2016, the Commission was investigating a matter relating to the awarding of the tender involving the 42 fire tenders. The investigations centered on whether or not the appropriate procurement processes and procedures were followed in the awarding of the tender. Investigations in this matter revealed that processes and procedures were followed and the matter was subsequently closed the same year,” Pastor Mumba stated.
“However, the Commission has noted the public concern over this matter. In light of this, the Commission is calling upon members of the public with any new information on the matter to avail the same to the Commission, to enable the Commission look into the matter further.”
She also invited those with evidence of corruption in the construction of the Lusaka-Ndola dual carriage way to come forward.
“The Commission has also taken an interest in the matter involving the construction of the Lusaka-Ndola dual carriage way. The Commission would further like to urge members of the public who have information on alleged corruption to promptly report such matters to the Anti-Corruption Commission as provided for in the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012, as opposed to only going to the media. The Commission handles whistleblowers and all other clients with utmost confidentiality and professionalism, ensuring that their rights are well protected.
Because of the nature of its investigations, the Commission may not necessarily publicize information regarding cases under investigation, but this does not mean that the Commission is not conducting its work. The Commission reports on investigations at appropriate junctures,” stated Pastor Mumba.
