Ruling party has no power to direct law enforcement agencies says Tiz

Transparency international Zambia says the ruling party has no power or mandate to direct law enforcement agencies on how they are supposed to operate.
UPND deputy secretary General Gertrude Imenda is quoted to have given a directive to the Anti-Corruption Commission to act on old corruption cases.
And TIZ executive Director Maurice Nyambe says what Ms. Imenda is suggesting is an incredibly flawed approach, considering it will not only exacerbate the cancer that is corruption and fuel it further, but also serve as a leeway for entrenchment of impunity.
Mr. Nyambe says Ms. Imenda has no mandate whatsoever to direct the ACC on how they should operate, and her statement is therefore devoid of any legal, moral or logical basis.
He says there is existing evidence that anti-corruption interventions often collapse as a result of infiltration in implementation processes.
Mr. Nyambe says Dealing with past corruption alone allows Individuals and institutions who have been tasked with monitoring and enforcing Punishments on the corrupt to learn how to manipulate new systems of tackling corruption and get away with it.
