ACTING President Guy Scott has warned politicians against corruption during campaigns in the run-up to the January 20, 2015 presidential election.
Dr Scott has also instructed law enforcement agencies to be vigilant with politicians who might engage in corruption.
“Politicians should desist from corrupt tendencies and help break the chain of corruption.
“The commission will remain vigilant and I know the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) is geared up to monitor these things,” he said.
Dr Scott was speaking during the commemoration of the 2014 International Anti-Corruption Day at Government Complex in Lusaka yesterday.
The International Anti-Corruption Day was commemorated under the theme: `Break the Corruption Chain’.
Dr Scott urged the ECZ to be vigilant and to monitor political activities ahead of the presidential election.
He said to win an election, one must have the ability to attract investors and tourists.
Dr Scott also said the Patriotic Front (PF) administration is on track in curbing corruption.
He said when PF came into power, President Sata showed political will to fight corruption.
Dr Scott also said President Sata declared that his rule was to be based on the Biblical 10 Commandments.
