TRANSPARENCY International Zambia has asked the Anti Corruption Commission to critically study the judgment in which Henry Kapoko and eight others were acquitted of theft by public servant before lodging an appeal.
Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) executive director Goodwell Lungu stated that the public expected a better result than what they had seen in magistrate Kenneth Mulife’s judgment.
The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) has indicated that it will soon appeal magistrate Mulife’s judgment in which he acquitted Kapoko and eight others were acquitted of theft by public servant involving K1.9 billion, money paid by the Ministry of Health to Kahekam Limited for the procurement of mother-baby kits.
“”They (ACC) shouldn’t go into that particular matter a bit carelessly,” he cautioned.
Lungu stated that the judgment had a potential to erode public confidence in the fight against corruption.
