The Anti-Corruption Commission has with effect from 26th August, 2014 taken over the management of seized properties belonging to Henry Kapoko, the former Human Resource Manager at the Ministry of Health.

This comes in the wake of the ruling by Principal Resident Magistrate Exornobert Zulu made on 27th August, 2014 in the matter in which Mr. Kapoko is facing 69 counts of theft,theft by Public Servant, Failing to Account for Possessions reasonably suspected to have been stolen, and Money Laundering contrary to the Laws of Zambia.

The Court ordered that the Anti-Corruption Commission should continue managing the properties including the collection of rentals until the matter is disposed of by the Courts of Law.

The Anti-Corruption Commission seized five properties from Mr. Kapoko in 2009 during the course of investigations into the Ministry of Health K10 billion inquiry, and trial of Mr. Kapoko continues before the Court.

ACC Public Relations Manager Timothy Moono in a statement made available to QFM News names the seized properties as property No. 3775, at House No. 25, Manda Hill Road, in Olympia, Property No.7791 off Buluwe Road, Woodlands Extension and Property No.
