What you need to know:

  • The president also sacked Zampost postmaster general, whose company was tasked to make payments to household beneficiaries.

  • The sackings come just days after Britain announced it had suspended all bilateral funding to Zambia in light of potential concerns until audit results are known.

  • The current regime is largely viewed as having a soft approach to graft, hence doubts abound if any officials will be successfully prosecuted.
