We are demanding for the immediate resignation of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Lilian Siyuni from her position, the United Party for National Development (UPND) in North western province has demanded.
UPND) provincial youth Chairperson Bruce Kanema told journalists in Solwezi that Ms Siyuni must resign on moral grounds in order to accord government an opportunity to fight corruption.
Mr Kanema said Ms Siyuni recent actions clearly shows that she does not support the UPND government’s agenda of fighting corruption.
He said the youths in the province have realised that the previous regime left people in strategic senior government positions who are frustrating government’s effort on the fight against corruption.
He said it is unfortunate that the people who have been put to fight against corruption are seen to be aiding those who are found in conflict with the law.
He said state institutions should not just be heard but seen to be supporting government of day policies especially the call against corruption which he said was rampant in the previous regime.
He said the DPP should not be seen as a hindrance to the new dawn administration agenda in the fight against corruption because by doing so it means she was undermining the directive of the r president Hakainde Hichilema.
He has also appealed to the powers that be to relieve off Ms Siyuni from duty if the crusade against corruption is to successes.
Recently, Ms Siyuni has come under fire from various stakeholders after the Konkola Copper Mine (KCM) provisional liquidator Milingo Lungu was acquired on Nolle prosequi.
