President Michael Sata has with immediate effect dropped Rodgers Mwewa and Ronald Chitotela as deputy ministers of Agriculture and Labour respectively for being investigated by the ACC for misuse of public funds.

President Sata made the announcement this morning shortly before a caucus meeting involving Cabinet Minister and PF members of parliament (MP) at state house.

The dropping of the two comes after Vice-President Dr Guy Scott's revealed in Parliament on Friday that the Anti Corruption Commission had started investigating Chitotela and Mwewa for misuse of public funds after being cited in the Auditor General's report.

Chitotela is an MP for Pambashe while Mwewa is for Mwansabombwe..

Mwewa is also married to suspended Permanent Secretary in charge of Administration at Cabinet Office Anna Mwitwa-Mwewa.
