CARITAS Zambia says the public is frustrated at the government’s failure to deal with perpetrators of corruption.
On Tuesday, Namwala council secretary Mabvuto Masiye was locked out of his office by fellow council workers for allegedly misappropriating K799, 000.
Commenting on the matter, Caritas executive director Samuel Mulafulafu said it was sad that corruption reports that the media was bringing out were not being acted upon by law enforcement wings and the government was tolerating it.
“I think the public is getting frustrated with the failure by government to deal with perpetrators of corruption, and if they do, the failure to inform the public of what they have done. We have had many reports coming out on such behaviour being exposed by the media. This is just one of those corruption cases being exposed and the public want to know, so I can understand what their frustration is about,” Mulafulafu said.
He said the misappropriation of council funds directly affected the delivery of services.
“I can understand their outrage. The beneficiaries are definitely angry, if the public fears that there is money that has been misused by the council then definitely they will get angry,” said Mulafulafu.
“Government must stamp out corruption and ensure that any person suspected of having misappropriated funds are suspended while investigations are going on.”
