Labour Minister Fackson Shamenda says he acted professionally with regards the bribery allegations he made against a Dangote official.
Mr. Shamenda says he acted in a professional manner by confronting Dangote Cement Zambia to stop what they were doing.
Mr. Shamenda says those calling for his resignation and prosecution for failing to report the bribe offer to the Anti Corruption Commission within 24 hours should understand that it was up him to act in the manner he did.
He says it is shocking that some people do not believe that a public officer can reject a bribe offer.
Mr. Shamenda says how he decided to expose what happened between him and the Dangote official was entirely up to him.
Mr. Shamenda says he is not a corrupt public officer and he will always adhere to upholding integrity.
