President Edgar Lungu has reiterated his commitment to intensifying the fight against corruption in the country.

President Lungu has since called on cooperating partners and the donor community to assist government in building capacity by providing training for investigative agencies to make sure that they are equipped with right skills to ensure that they carry out their duties diligently.

President Lungu was speaking in Lusaka today, when outgoing European Union (EU) Ambassador to Zambia Alessandro Mariani and his Swedish counterpart Henrick Cederin called on him at State House.

President Lungu explained that contrary to assertions by some sections of society and social media, he does not condone corruption and will support any efforts aimed at curbing the vice.

He noted that people are free to report any corrupt activities to relevant investigative wings, regardless of who is involved, in order to ensure that a laid down process of investigating, arresting and prosecution is followed.


A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
