DR. EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU HAS DISSOLVED THE FIC BOARD FOR EXPOSING HIS CORRUPT PACTICES
The dissolution of the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) Board is ill-timed and politically motivated. The FIC has been the number one institution which has been credible, autonomous, and independent since its inception.
This institution has been professional and credible while maintaining high levels of integrity and professionalism in its undertaking. Unfortunately not all of us have been happy with the reports that FIC has been releasing to the public. Edgar Lungu is one of the individuals who have expressed disappointments in the manner that FIC has been conducting itself.
It’s highly regrettable to learn that Mr Edgar Lungu has opted to dissolve the FIC Board by replacing it with new board members all because the institution has for a long time exposed Mr Lungu’s high levels of corruption.
We know this development at FIC has nothing to do with end of tenure of the fired Officers because this is what Sunday Chanda, Antonio Mwanza, Dora Siliya and Edgar Lungu himself have been advocating for. This is all a planned move to fire credible hard working individuals.
The new Board of Directors will not serve the interest of the people of Zambia as the previous one because these people have been intentionally appointed to cover up, defend corruption and protect the PF corrupt leaders by giving false information to the public. The performance of this new Board will be to please the appointing authorities and not the people of Zambia.
Corrupt individuals will try by all means to defend corruption, justify corruption and pretend nothing wrong is happening in the country. But it’s too late for Mr. Lungu because Zambians are not fools. Zambians have opened their eyes and have seen the failures of Mr. Lungu and his government.
