Transparent International Zambia (TIZ) has welcomed the Anti Corruption Commission’s decision to institute investigations against Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili.

Mr. Chishimba is being probed by the ACC over adverts published in the Times of Zambia and Zambia Daily Mail newspapers last year congratulating him for acquiring a degree from Copperstone University, suspected to have been paid for using state funds.

TIZ Executive Director, Goodwell Lungu, has however appealed to the Commission to extend investigations to other Ministers who are suspected of involvement in corrupt activities.

Mr. Lungu says the ACC should be recommended for taking such a bold step to investigate the Sports Minister.

Mr. Lungu has told QFM News in an interview that if corruption is to be eradicated in the country, such bold steps should be taken by the investigative wings.
