let me prosecute Situmbeko and Milupi Asks The DPP Munir Zulu….as he expresses lack of confidence in the ACC.


Munir requests to privately prosecute Milupi, Musokotwane.

AFTER being summoned to appear before the police and the Anti-Corruption Commision (ACC) over the accusations he made against ministers Charles Milupi and Situmbeko Musokotwane, Munir Zulu failed to avail himself before the Commission.

In his accusation, Zulu incriminated Finance Minister Situmbeko Musokotwane and Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development Minister Charles Milupi of receiving a bribe worth $250, 000 from a named company.

According to Zulu the bribe that the two state workers received was over the construction of the Lusaka- Ndola dual carriage way.

Following the allegations, ACC issued a letter on March 24, 2023 requesting to have a meeting with Zulu to discuss his allegations.

But to him, ACC’s move was a clear indication of the commission’s incompetence to investigate matters as he stated in a statement he issued today.

Zulu stated that the commission acted in a very contemporaneously manner by issuing Musokotwane’s denial statement rather than engaging Zulu over his allegations.

“The President under whose office the Anti-Corruption Commission falls by virtue of gazette notice number 1123, issued a statement instructing the ministers to sue me alleging that I was being mischievous,” he stated.

“Based on the above, it became evident that in the eyes of the supervisor, of the Anti-Corruption Commission, there is or was no corruption by the UPND ministers.”

Zulu added that the ACC’s desire and ability to fight corruption on this matter is prejudiced and it is for this reason that he denied to appear before their office for questioning.

“ My observations has proved that the ACC has gone on defence for the ministers by issuing a supportive statement for them rather than investigating them like their job demands,” Zulu alleged.

“I have since sent a request to the office of the Director of Public prosecution to allow me to privately prosecute this matter,” Zulu stated.
