The Board of Commissioners of the Anti-Corruption Commission has decided to establish a Directorate of Internal Investigations aimed at ensuring that members of staff adhere to the highest ethical standards in their discharge of duties.
The Board at its inaugural meeting held on 29th June, 2022 further looked at various institutional reforms and policies for the betterment and improved operational performance of the Commission.
The Board also unanimously elected Mrs. Irene Chongo Lamba as its Vice Chairperson. She previously worked as Deputy Director General for the Anti-Corruption Commission from 2012 to 2018.
The members of Board including the Director-General have since filed in their declaration of assets and liabilities as required by the law pursuant to Section 14 (a) and (b) and Section 4 of the Schedule of the Anti- Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012.
The Board of Commissioners remains hopeful that the progressive policies and reforms that will be pursued will translate the Commission into an institution that will effectively execute its mandate.
