The Anti-Corruption Commission has arrested three Directors of Honey Bee Pharmacy Limited on one count of uttering of a false document.
The Commission has arrested Abdurrauf Abdurahim Motala, 41 of Umodzi Highway in Chipata, Zakir H. Motala, 42, of ABM Apartments in Lusaka and Imran Runat, 40 of house number 429 Obote Road in Lusaka.
The arrests come in the wake of a contract awarded in August 2019 by the government through the Ministry of Health to Honey Bee Pharmacy, for the supply of 22,500 health kits to health centers countrywide at a contract sum of 17 million dollars.
Investigations have established that the three directors uttered false documents to the Ministry of Health as part of the tender documents for the supply and delivery of health kits including undated recommendation letters from South Africa and Malawi and an Audit Financial Statement purportedly prepared by an auditor but which was not the case.
Confirming the development, ACC Spokesperson Queen Chibwe said the arrest is only one part of the many aspects of the case involving Honey Bee Pharmacy that the Commission has been investigating.
