The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has rewarded a police officer who turned down a K50,000 bribe from Electricity cables vandals .
Sergant Noel Phiri who is under Protective Unit was this morning among public officers that were awarded by ACC’ s Integrity Awards for the year 2022 which were held at Southern Sun Hotel.
Speaking during the awards, Secretary toCabinet Mr. Patrick Kangwa stressed the need in the fight against corruption.
