The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested a Copperbelt University (CBU) lecturer for corrupt practices involving sexual gratification.

Webby Mulyata Mwaka, a 44-year-old lecturer in the School of Engineering, of CBU Jambo Drive Campus, has been charged with abuse of authority of office contrary to Section 21(c) of the Anti-Corruption Act Number 3 of 2012.

Details are that between January 1, 2023 and 3 October, 2023 in Kitwe, Copperbelt Province did abuse the authority of his office by corruptly soliciting sexual gratification from a named female Copperbelt University student.

The solicitation of the sexual gratification was as an inducement or reward for himself to help her pass her course, a matter or transaction that concerns the Copperbelt University, a Public Body.

Dr. Mwaka has since been released on bond and will appear before court soon.

A month ago, the Commission arrested two other CBU Lecturers on similar charges.

ACC head of corporate communications Timothy Moono said in a statement that ACC is concerned with the rise in offences of this nature.

The ACC has since appealed to all victims of such immoral and criminal acts not to shy away from reporting incidences of sexual gratification but to report to the ACC so that corruption in all its forms is eliminated.
