Health Professions Council of Zambia (HPCZ) says it has taken keen interest in the arrest of a Levy Mwanawasa Medical University lecturer by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for allegedly receiving bribes from students to facilitate their passing in Continuous Assessment Tests.
Council Senior Public Relations Officer Terry Musonda told Money FM News that the arrest of Kenneth Chisamanga 43, who is fully registered with HPCZ, is regrettable and makes sad reading to the Council as a regulator of health practitioners.
Mr. Musonda stated that HPCZ has since taken a keen interest in the outcome of the matter as it may border on professional misconduct.
“Health Professions Council of Zambia has noted with sadness the arrest of a lecturer at Levy Mwanawasa Medical University by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for allegedly receiving bribes from students to facilitate their passing in Continuous Assessment Tests.”
“To this effect, HPCZ has taken a keen interest in the outcome of the matter as it may border on professional misconduct under Section 19 (1) of the Health Professions Act No. 24 of 2009 of the Laws of Zambia,” Mr. Musonda said.
He stated that the Council remains committed to its core function of regulating and monitoring of professional conduct of all its registrable health practitioners, regardless of where they may be serving.
On Wednesday, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Corporate Communications Manager Timothy Moono disclosed that the Commission has arrested a lecturer at Levy Mwanawasa Medical University for receiving over K16, 000 in bribes from students to facilitate their passing in Continuous Assessments Tests.
Mr. Moono explained that between 1st January 2022 and 25th November 2022 in Lusaka District, whilst acting together with persons unknown, the Lecturer corruptly solicited and received various amounts of cash totaling K7, 500 and K9, 100 from two named first year students in the Midwifery Diploma Class as an inducement or reward for him to facilitate the adjustment in continuous assessment test results and final examination results.
