Transparency International Zambia Chapter has welcomed the arrest of Housing and Infrastructure Development Minister Ronald Chitotela by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).

 

Yesterday the Anti-Corruption Commission arrested Minister of Housing and Infrastructure Development Minister Ronald Chitotela.

 

Details in the first count are that on unknown dates but between the 1st day of July 2016 and the 30th day of October 2018 in Lusaka District, Chitotela did conceal a property namely lot number 148 of farm 50A situated in Makeni, Lusaka disguised in the names of Diris Mukange, property reasonably suspected of being proceeds of crime. 

 

Details in the second count are that on dates unknown but between the 1st day of July 2016 and the 30th day of October 2018 in Lusaka District Chitotela did conceal a property namely the remaining extent of Subdivision A of lot 22183/M situated in Ibex Hill Lusaka, disguised in the name of Diris Mukange, property reasonably suspected of being proceeds of crime.

 

 TIZ President Reuben Lifuka believes that ACC has done its homework and has sufficient grounds to effect the arrest further encouraging the ACC and other law enforcement agencies to do their work without any fear or favour.

 

Lifuka has since called on President Edgar Lungu to immediately relieve Chitotela of his ministerial duties in order to pave way for investigations.
