By GIDEON NYENDWA

THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested former Workers’ Compensation Fund Control Board (WCFCB chief executive officer Priscilla Bwembya for corrupt practices.

ACC head of corporate affairs Timothy Moono said Ms. Bwembya aged 47, of Plot No. F/609/E/77/A184/C Foxdale, Chamba Valley, Lusaka, was arrested and charged with willful failure to comply with applicable law, procedure and guidelines contrary to Section 34(2) of the Anti- Corruption Act. 

Mr Moono said details were that Ms Bwembya, on dates unknown but between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021, in Ndola, Copperbelt Province, jointly and whilst acting together with persons unknown, did willfully fail to comply with applicable law, procedure and guidelines in the manner that she authorised the release of nine Toyota Hilux motor vehicles, to the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, for a purported Labour Force Survey, when in fact the motor vehicles were released to a named political party for use during the 2021 general elections. 

He said after the elections, the nine motor vehicles were abandoned at WCFCB premises in Ndola, by the said political party, and later seized by the ACC following an investigation into the matter.

Mr Moono said Ms Bwembya has been released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court soon.
