Dear editor,
IMAGINE the Anti-Corruption Comission (ACC) investigating Minister of Sports Chishimba Kambwili for alleged abuse of office for having directed the Ministry of Sports to advertise congratulatory messages in the public media for a Bachelor of Arts degree in public administration which he obtained from Copperstone University in the Copperbelt.

Quietly, there is a revolution going on in Zambia in fighting corruption.
The current zero tolerance to corruption in Zambia has made President Sata’s PF Government a shining star more especially that the ACC does not seek permission from the appointing authority when investigating ministers.
To scale up the PF’s graft fight, the ACC must take the fight against corruption seriously and encourage all the districts in the country to be actively involved in the struggle against corruption.
Has the ACC ever thought of instituting an annual competition and awards for districts based on the marks they attain for their work on anti-corruption and good governance?
The ACC can perhaps give the district national recognition by way of trophies and certificates annually.
This anti-corruption campaign could also focus on youths because they are the leaders of tomorrow.
Train them to develop integrity in what they do.
Also all civil servants in charge of the management of public funds have to declare their assets.
MUBANGA LUCHEMBE,
Lusaka.
