The Anti-Corruption Commission is studying the judgment delivered by the Subordinate Court with the view to appeal against the acquittal of former Ministry of Health Human Resource Manager Henry Kapoko and seven others on 21 counts of theft by public servant and money laundering involving K4 million public funds.
ACC Public Relations Manager Timothy Moono has told QFM News in a statement that the Commission is not satisfied with the judgment of the subordinate Court and will appeal to the High Court.
In her judgment delivered on Friday, 26th September, 2014, Magistrate Sharon Newa convicted a Director of Royal College of Secretarial Valenta Miyoba Nkhata and sentenced her to three years imprisonment.
Her daughter Abigail Nkhata was equally convicted but given an absolute discharge for the offences committed.
Magistrate Newa further forfeited to the state properties which include a farm in Lusaka West, 15 computers, a Mercedez Benz, and a Toyota Kluger confirmed to have been bought from the stolen money.
The Magistrate however acquitted Henry Kapoko and seven others on account of what the Court deemed as insufficient evidence.
