By Chisomo Phiri

The state says it has concluded hearing of a corruption case involving former Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General Reyneck Matemba.

In a statement, ACB Principal Public Relations Officer, Egrita Ndala says the state paraded the fifteen and last witness in the case.

She says the case has since been adjourned to July 16, 2024 for a ruling on whether Matemba has a case to answer or not.


Matemba was arrested in August 2022 in his capacity as Solicitor General for allegedly receiving a $10 000 bribe from businessperson Zuneth Sattar.

He is facing two counts under the offence of failure to declare interest by a public officer contrary to Section 25D (2) (a) of the Corrupt Practices Act (CPA) as read together with Section 34 of the Corrupt Practices Act.
