The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is investigating UPND leader, Hakainde Hichilema over his role in the privatization of state owned assets following allegations of wrong doing on his part.

The Commission’s investigations follows a complaint by Economic and Equity Party (EEP) leader, Chilufya Tayali.

ACC Assistant Public Relations Manager, Dorothy Phiri says the commission has since recorded a statement from Mr. Hichilema.

FDD leader, Edith Nawakwi has also accused Mr. Hichilema of wrong doing in the manner he handled the sale of some state institutions.

In October last year , President Edgar Lungu expressed desire to constitute an inquiry into the privatization programme after receiving a petition from a Consortium of Civil Society Organisations that matched to State House led by Young African Leaders Initiative President, Andrew Ntewewe.

But opposition NDC leader, Chishimba Kambwili accused President Lungu of scheming to arrest Mr. Hichilema.
