The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested a Copperbelt University (CBU) lecturer for corrupt practices involving sexual gratification.
ACC head of Corporate Communications, Timothy Moono, identified the lecturer as Webby Mwaka, from the School of Engineering, aged 43, of CBU Jambo Drive Campus
Moono in a statement issued in Lusaka on Friday said Mwaka had been charged with one count of Abuse of Authority of Office contrary to Section 21(c) of the Anti-Corruption Act Number 3 of 2012.
He said Mwaka on dates unknown but between January 1, 2023 and October 3, 2023 in Kitwe, Copperbelt Province did abuse the authority of his office.
“Mwaka did corruptly solicit sexual gratification from a named female Copperbelt University student as an inducement or reward for himself to help her pass her course,” Moono said
He said this was a matter or transaction that concerned the Copperbelt University, a Public Body.

Moono said Mwaka had since been released on bond and would appear before court soon.
He said a month ago, the Commission arrested two other CBU lectures on similar charges.
“The Commission is concerned with the rise in offences of this nature and would like to appeal to all victims of such immoral and criminal acts not to shy away from reporting incidences of sexual gratification but to report to the ACC so that corruption in all its forms is eliminated,” Moono said.
