The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) says it is following the Joseph Malanji grade 12 saga with keen interest and ready to prosecute if possible.

ACC Director General Gilbert Phiri says the Commission won’t cast a blind eye if there’s any incident of corruption fingered at a public official.

He says if there are elements of corruption in what led to the nullification of Malanji’s election, then the Commission is bound to act accordingly.

And Phiri says the commission is also keenly waiting to receive a report from the High Court registrar in relation to the nullification of Bowman Lusambo’s election as Kabushi MP on grounds of corruption, among others.

The Constitutional Court recently upheld the High Court’s decision to nullify Malanji’s Kwacha parliamentary seat on grounds that he did not possess a grade 12 certificate during the time of nomination.

The ConCourt also upheld the Ndola High Court’s decision to nullify Lusambo’s election.
