Sean Kampondeni says new ACB boss to announced as soon.

He said Chakwera takes the issue of fighting corruption seriously that’s why he is taking his time to ensure there’s a right candidate at the helm of ACB.

Kampondeni said, “a panel shortlists three candidates. Those three names are submitted to the President and the law empowers the President to appoint anyone on that list of three.

“If the President is not satisfied with any of the names, or is not satisfied how the process of shortlisting was done, the law, empowers the President to return the names to the Minister of Justice and requires him to start the process from scratch,” said Kampondeni

He said the names have been submitted and the President is reviewing the recommendations of the panel and then he will be making his decisions related to that accordingly.

But not Chizuma. The lady seems to be the ruling party stooge. Cases of abuse by Zangazanga Chikhosi have been reported to her yet she did investigate. Chikhosi is employing people like Bendulo to take up senior positions in government yet has no qualification. He has employed over 300 people without going through any interviews.

What is wrong with you. Bendulo is employed based on the knowledge he has on the computer systems. You may have the education as you put it but you can not match Bendulo by far far. Muzituwa choncho. Pezani chochita inunso akuganizileni. You went to school yes but what have you done to the nation apart from kumangonyadila ka certificate kanu munapeza ku UNIMA or private chani chani uko. You cannot match Bendulo and I repeat you cannot match him! Zaziii
