The Anti-Corruption Commission -ACC- has arrested three Directors of Honey Bee Pharmacy Limited for uttering of false documents.
The three are ABDURRAUF ABDURAHIM MOTALA, aged 41 of Chipata, ZAKIR MOTALA, 42, of Lusaka and IMRAN RUNAT, 40, also of Lusaka.
ACC Spokesperson QUEEN CHUNGU has confirmed to ZNBC News in a statement that the three have been arrested on one count of uttering a false document.
Mrs. CHIBWE said the arrest comes in the wake of a contract awarded in August 2019 by Government through the Ministry of Health to Honey Bee Pharmacy, to supply 22500 health kits to health centers countrywide at a contract sum of US$17m.
She said investigations have established that the three directors of Honey Bee Pharmacy Limited uttered false documents to the Ministry of Health as part of the tender documents for the supply and delivery of health kits.
Mrs. CHIBWE said the documents included, undated recommendation letters from South Africa and Malawi and an Audit Financial Statement purportedly prepared by an auditor but which was not the case.
She further said the arrest is only one part of the many aspects of the case involving Honey Bee Pharmacy that the Commission has been investigating.
