Alita mbahwe , Commissioner, Drug Enforcement Commission, Zambia. Sometime in April 2017 the Drug Enforcement Commission lost a senior official through death. The said official’s name was Trevor Malambo, who was senior assistant commissioner in charge of operations before his demise. Upon the demise of the said person, a vacancy arose on the post of senior assistant commissioner in charge of operations.
The Dec organizational structure is such that the position of senior assistant commissioner is at level three in terms of ranking. The first is the position of commissioner, followed by deputy commissioner.
Following the demise of Trevor Malambo, Alita mbahwe, the commissioner, quickly appointed her younger brother Anderson mbahwe to start acting as senior assistant commissioner in charge of operations. This was despite the fact that there were other competent senior officers within the commission who had expressed interest in the said vacancy.
Within no time alita confirmed her younger brother Anderson mbahwe as senior assistant commissioner in charge of operations. Alita blocked the other senior officers from ascending to the said position. Alita abused her authority of office by single handedly blocking other deserving senior officers and appointing her younger brother Anderson to take over the said position. As we speak Anderson is still senior assistant commissioner in charge of operations to date. This means that whatever financial benefit Anderson mbahwe has derived from this position is proceeds of corruption, as the said promotion is a subject of corruption.
We urge the Anti Corruption Commission to swiftly move in on alita mbahwe, she’s corrupt with no integrity.
We challenge alita to deny these facts. However, due to the fact that this is an open secret at the Drug Enforcement Commission, we doubt alita would even have the audacity to deny what we have said.
