RDA directors under investigation for graft

The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) is investigating Roads Development Agency ( RDA) Chief Executive Officer Elias Mwape and Director Human Capital Elias Mwila for corrupt practices and Abuse of authority of office.
A source from ACC has disclosed that the duo are being investigated for possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime. The two are also being investigated for receiving bribes on recruitment.
Last week the RDA board sent on forced leave the duo for putting Mrs. Mwape ( CEO’s wife) who also works for RDA on paid leave for three years without following procedure.

    The RDA corruption is so pervasive, serious and has cost this country billions for unconstructed roads. The management have taken advantage of Zambian’s ignorance that they’ve stolen money in broad daylight, right before our eyes. They don’t even hide any more. Look at the size of the roads. If you compare the sizes in the contracts and the narrow roads that are subsequently made, that’s the first one. As Zambians, we look at the NEW road but don’t question the SIZE of that road and what we are paying for. We still pay for the wider tarmac we didn’t get. you can’t begin to understand the scale and the millions of dollars they’ve stolen using this scheme. You should also investigate the engineering firms who connived with RDA to steal the money by signing off the shoddy works. Also look at the pavement. In what planet do you build staggered pavements? They are more dangerous than not having spaced out pavements. By the way, doesn’t RTSA get to say anything when roads are constructed unsafely? I agree with the other colleague, THIS investigation should go back to previous RDA managers who also participated in the inflation of road construction prices with their government cronies.

    Let ACC investigate suspected PF government leaders conclusively. Why is Chilufya not on suspension?

    Chief executive, same region, human resource director, same region, chairman of the board Samuel Mukupa, same region. Is this the way to run a country?

    Spouses should never be employed in the same organisation! This compromises a lot of things… A good example is what has transpired at RDA.

    The ACC should also follow those who worked for RDA & left after stealing “enough”,& have laundered the proceeds of crime in farming & real eastate.
