    Please give some updated information


    The anti-corruption commission has been become inactive in this government,where Red-tape corruption can be practiced without any for investigation,while Pity-corruption is been investigated.It’s only in zambia where felonies can be committed by these with money without even Acc investigate the offense.My area of concern is that where as a Christian nation are we going?…..If countries like India,Japan,China,UK,Scotland,Britain,Ghana,Botswana,e.t.c can fight corruption at root-level
