Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) has described President Michael Sata’s decision to dismiss Cabinet Office Permanent Secretary Anna Mwewa as a good measure befitting her alleged misappropriation of public funds.
TIZ Executive Director Goodwell Lungu has since appealed to the President to extend similar punishment to all civil servants who have been accused of misappropriation of public funds.
Mr. Lungu notes that the President should especially target those that have been cited in the Auditor General’s reports.
Mr Lungu has told Qfm in an interview that this is one way of ensuring that the fight against corruption in the country is taken to a higher level.
He says this is also why his organization finds the move taken by the Head of State to dismiss Mrs. Mwewa as a good signal in the fight against corruption provided that such a trend is sustained
