The Anti-Corruption Commission in Choma has arrested a former mayor of Choma for conflict of interest in a matter involving allocation of plots.

Professor Mwaanga, 46, of Silukiya Village in Choma has been charged with one count of conflict of interest contrary to Section 28(2) of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012 of the Laws of Zambia.

Details of the offence are that on dates unknown but between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2017 in Choma, Mwaanga, as Mayor of Choma Municipal Council, jointly and whilst acting together with other persons, failed to declare interest in writing when he took part in the selection process for allocation of plots in which his wife, Dainess Maingaila, was an applicant.

Mwaanga has since been released on bond and will appear in Court on April 17, 2019.

      Why go to Bayport in the place? For a Civil Servant, I expected you to understand the basics pertaining to loans.
