The Anti-Corruption Commission has arrested two Chinese Nationals for Corrupt Practices involving K5,200.00.

ACC public relations Manager Timothy Moono says the two have been charged and arrested separately contrary to Section 19(1) and 19(2) respectively as read with section 41 of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012.

Mr Moono says in the first matter, Wenjun Zhao, 27, an engineer for Sinozocha Resource Investments in Mufumbwe District has been charged and arrested with one count of Corrupt Practices with Public Officer.

He says details are that on 10th July, 2013 Zhao corruptly gave K200.00 cash gratification to Ronald Mulenga, an officer of Road Transport and Safety Agency (RATSA) as an inducement or reward in order for Mulenga to free Mutanda Wisamba, a driver at his company Sinozocha Resource Investments.
