    Well done ACC but you should also arrest those Ministers who are found wanting. Because a Clerical Officer is far from Government Officials and that is why she has been charged with that case. All in all be fair and fearless when it comes to prosecuting the offenders.

    Well done ACC, but you need to extend your investigations to other ministries like the ministry of information and broadcasting.particularly at Times of Zambia ltd. It looks like there is mis aprepriations of money at this company. Our brothers and sisters have surfaced for more than 6 years now, but they work hard day and night where does the money go ? To date they are not paid for 7months. This is one of the Gvt Institutions that need ACC to bounce on.
