ACC investigating Terrestrial Migration tender – Scott

VICE-President Guy Scott has told Parliament that the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is investigating the alleged breaches in the award of the Digital Terrestrial Migration (DTM) tender, which has since been cancelled.
The tender was cancelled on the advice of the Zambia Public Procurement Authority.
Dr Scott said this when United Party for National Development (UPND) Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo asked why the ACC had not commenced investigations into the alleged fraud in the awarding of the tender for the DTM.
This was during the Vice-President’s question and answer session.
Mr Nkombo wondered whether the non-commencement of the investigations was part of the Presidential order that no senior Government officers should be investigated without his permission.
“I understand the matter in question is before the ACC, but I don’t have the information on how far it has gone. I will provide the answer to the MP in due course once I am furnished with the details,” Dr Scott said.
