Former Health Minister Chituwo Jailed for Corruption

The Mumbwa Magistrate Court has convicted former Mumbwa Central Member of Parliament Dr. Brian Chituwo for failure to declare interest in a matter involving the disbursement of K70,000 Constituency Development Fund (CDF).

Mumbwa Resident Magistrate Honurable Sithole has convicted and sentenced Dr. Chituwo to one year imprisonment with hard labour suspended for two years.

Honurable Sithole has also ordered that Dr. Chituwo should pay back the K70,000 given to Blue Sky FM Limited or the equipment bought for the radio station be forfeited to the State, failure to which he will serve a jail sentence of one Month.

This is in a matter in which the Anti-Corruption Commission arrested Chituwo on one count of conflict of interest contrary to Section 28(2) as read with Section 41 of the Anti- Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012.

In this matter it was alleged that on dates unknown but between 1st January, 2012 and 31st December, 2014 in Mumbwa District of Central Province, Dr Chituwo attended a Council meeting, and participated in the proceedings to fund Blue Sky FM Limited, a private company in which he was director and shareholder without declaring interest in writing.

    ACC has been charged with the responsibility of protecting national resources; However , what we see is that it fails to act when the perpetrators are are still holding their offices. A lot has been raised by whistle blowers but ACC has been as usual silent. Fire tenders, over priced road contracts to name a few. Our country is losing a lot through corruption. Waiting for their retirement will be too late. True patriotism should be exercised by ACC.

    The Acc should target more especially the ones in the govt, we want them to enjoy themselves after serving there period as MPs or rather ministers.

  20. mulakwe

    how can you sentence him one year while innocent people are sentenced more than ten years? Be fair naimwe ,you’re busy saying corruption and yet you’re doing the same corruption .You’re all pretenders.

  21. washangepikashalubemba

  22. Khc

    Kkkkkk ati he had been ordered to pay back k70000 failure to which he will serve a jail sentence of one month.so what do ba ACC think this guy will go for one month in prison +that one year or pay back those money to serve just one year? For me I would rather serve that ka one than than paying back k70000 yakulisha.

  23. wongani

    When a public work found guilty more year but politics less year and suspended as a gift. CDF is abused by mp’s who feel has if it’s they own money and govt reappear law and put new law 2 protect the fund.
