HH formally writes to ACC over Sichinga fertiliser corruption

7th November, 2013

The Director General,
Anti Corruption Commission
Lusaka

Dear Madam,

RE: CORRUPTION ASSOCIATED WITH UREA FERTILIZER PROCUREMENT FROM SAUDI ARABIA

We write to make a formal complaint on the irregularities with the procurement, by the Ministry of Finance, of 50,000 tonnes of Urea Fertilizer from Saudi Arabia.

This procurement was singe sourced (without open tenders) and there appears to be over payment for the fertilizer. (Page 2&3 of the attached document provides details) [Press Statement for 31st October 2013]

In our view, the above conduct constitutes corruption. It is a clear waste of public resources and possible theft. Upon receipt of this complaint and as provided for in the Anti Corruption Act, we expect your office to commence the process of formal investigations in this act of corruption.

Yours faithfully,

Hakainde Hichilema
PRESIDENT
