Provide proof for corrupt allegations in the PF, Lungu Challenges

Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu has challenged people that have been alleging that there are some corrupt officials in the Patriotic Front (PF) government to prove their claims following the Anti-Corruption Commission’s decision not proceed to probe the allegations due to lack of sufficient details.

Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba and Vice president Guy Scott had recently claimed there were corrupt officials in the PF government at the height of calls for Mr Kabimba to resign as PF Secretary General.

Speaking in a telephone interview with QFM News, Mr. Lungu says the onus is now on the people alleging that there is corruption in the PF government to produce evidence to prove such claims.

He states that that anyone claiming that there is corruption in the PF without showing evidence will be merely politicking.

Mr. Lungu adds that people making such allegations must also use the right channels to prove their allegations by reporting to the ACC and allow the allegations to be investigated failure to which such people would be spreading falsehood.
