THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in Eastern Province has arrested Chipata Trades Training Institute principal Osman Maliki for alleged corrupt practices by public officer.

ACC regional manager Raymond Banda confirmed that Maliki was arrest on Wednesday for corrupt practices by public officer contrary to section 29 (1) as read with section 41 of the ACC Act number 42 of 1996.

Banda said Maliki was arrested for allegedly receiving K1.4 million, an inducement from a Lusaka based company Bruno Enterprises which supplied 100 tables, 100 chairs and computer accessories to Chipata Trades Training Institute.

Banda said the consignment supplied by Bruno Enterprises amounted to about K50 million.

He said the ACC was tipped about the matter by an informer and Maliki was arrested on February 27, 2010.

Maliki has since appeared in the Chipata magistrates court.
