The ACC recently arrested former Southern Province Permanent Secretary Edwin Zumbunu for corrupt practices. According to the ACC between 1st May, 2012 and the 31st August, 2012 Edwin Zumbunu in role as Permanent Secretary for Southern Province wilfully failed to comply with applicable procedure relating to procurement when he approved works for the construction of a wall fence at the Southern Province Minister’s official residence. The works were allegedly valued at more than K195,000 (in rebased prices).
Edwin Zumbunu was fired exactly a year ago by President Sata following allegations of corruption. The Zambian Watchdog had revealed the extent of Zumbunu's corrupt activities. Zumbunu had dismissed all the allegations levelled against him.
