ROAD Transport and Safety Agency chief executive officer Zindaba Soko has written to the Ministry of Transport and Communications requesting to proceed on leave to pave way for investigation into the alleged money laundering activities against him over the Road Traffic Management System contract.
This is according to a short statement by transport and communications minister
Dr Brian Mushimba.
“As part of good corporate governance practice, Mr Soko wants the investigation process to proceed without any perceived interference from his office and allow the law to take its course,” Dr Mushimba stated.
“From the foregoing, my office has since approved the request for leave.”
Last month the Drug Enforcement Commission announced that it was investigating Soko on unknown charges but suspected to be related to money laundering.
