The Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested and charged Former Kabushi Constituency member of Parliament BOWMAN LUSAMBO for electoral corruption.
Mr. LUSAMBO has been arrested and charged with four counts of bribery contrary to Section 81 of the Electoral Process Act No. 35 of 2016.
The offences were committed between April 1st and August 14th, 2021 in Ndola during the August 2021 General Election campaign period.
ACC Public Relations Manager, TIMOTHY MOONO has confirmed the arrest to ZNBC News today.
Mr. MOONO said the arrest follows the recent ruling of the Constitutional Court which nullified the election of Mr. LUSAMBO as Member of Parliament for Kabushi Constituency for engaging in electoral corruption.
He said resulting from its decision, the Constitutional Court issued a Report which detailed the electoral malpractices that were perpetrated by Mr. LUSAMBO.
Mr. LUSAMBO has been released on Bond and is expected to appear in court soon.
Meanwhile, Former Kwacha Member of Parliament JOSEPH MALANJI is currently being interrogated by the ACC.
Mr. MALANJI arrived at the commission headquarters around 09:50 hours and was accompanied by lawyer MAKEBI ZULU.
