ACB denies selective prosecution

The Anti-Corruption Bureau has denied claims that it is selective in the way it handles cases in its mandate to fight corruption in the country. According to an interview with a local media house, Senior Public Relations Officer Egritta Ndala, “ACB is not selective. It takes to court cases where there is evidence of an offence because sufficient evidence warrants prosecution, without any discrimination.”

“Less complex cases demand fewer resources in terms of both time, finances and other requirements as such they do not take long to conclude similarly complex cases demand more resources as well as specialized skills for them to be concluded,” she added.
