Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has said it will fight a claim by Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) Greselder Jeffrey who wants to be awarded K70 billion.

Jeffrey who is DPP Secretary General was together with three others accused of abusing K187 million but won the case. Now they want to be given K70 billion.

During a meeting with ACB director general Reyneck Matemba on Tuesday, Parliamentary Legal Affairs Committee chairperson Maxwell Thyolera said delay in prosecuting the K187 million case led to government being sued.

“The damages, to the tune of K70 billion, are too much; this is milking from the meagre resources we have,” he said.

But Matemba said the bureau willl fight the claim.

He added that previous government officials failed to make the right decisions and that is why government is being sued.

“ACB did its best to take the matter to court. But there were some officers and offices in the public sector that made the decisions causing us the problems now,” he reported.

During the meeting, Thyolera urged government to be serious in fighting corruption and to adequately fund the ACB and other agencies that fight corruption and crime.

“I urge the government to ensure that these institutions are well equipped to do their work properly,” he said.
