The Anti-Corruption Commission has arrested Minister of Health Dr Chitalu Chilufya.
Chilufya, 47, of H/n 4, Robert Kennedy Close, Off Brentwood Avenue, in Lusaka, was arrested today and charged with four counts of possession of property reasonably suspected of being proceeds of crime contrary to section 71 sub section 1 of the Forfeiture of Proceeds of Crime Act No. 19 of 2010.
The arrest follows investigations the Commission has been conducting against the Minister in relation to the above allegations.
Chilufya has since been released on bond in his own recognizance and is expected to appear before the Lusaka Magistrate’s Court on July 9, 2020.
This is according to a media statement made available to The Independent Observer by ACC Corporate Affairs Officer Jonathan Siame.
