Mr Kalunga says Zambians had lost trust in the institutions of good governance because they are deemed to be corrupt apart from lacking independence in their execution of their mandate.

Mr.Kalungu said there was more that had to be done for the ACC, particularly to regain public confidence because they were key in the government’s agenda to fight corruption and other economic vices.

The former TIZ president said there is need for the law enforcement agencies such as the ACC to learn lessons from their previous mistakes, especially in the case of the K65 million kwacha that was taken from Faith Musonda and the saga that followed their after. 

Mr Kalungu said it was sad that the ACC had created against itself a negative public perception which it have failed to deal with for some time thereby posing a challenge in the fight against graft.

He said the onus remained on the ACC, DEC and other good governance institutions to change the negative perception for the benefit of the country and other stakeholders in the civil society.
