PRESS RELEASE

 

FALSE ARTICLE: “MASEBO TEARS ACC REPORT ON CANCELLATION OF SAFARI HUNTING”

The Anti-Corruption Commission wishes to bring to the attention of the public that an article published by one of Zambia’s online publications the Zambian Watchdog on 26th February, 2013 titled “Masebo Tears ACC Report on Cancellation of Safari Hunting” is false.

The Commission would like to state that the investigations into alleged corrupt practices at the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) in the manner the tender for Safari Hunting Licences was processed are still on-going and the Commission has not submitted any report to the Minister of Tourism and Arts Honorable Sylvia Masebo, or to any other person or authority.

In view of the above, the story attributed to claimed ACC sources is not only malicious but a total fabrication intended to deceive the public.
