The US embassy in Zambia has fired 10 members of staff who they accuse of fraud, misconduct, and corruption.

The names and nationalities of the people sacked weren’t listed in the embassy’s statement on Thursday, but the strongly worded letter said no organisation was immune to corruption – which undermines corruption public services, national cohesion, and economic development.

“It is precisely because the United States is also challenged by the scourge of corruption that the US embassy takes such an active and robust role fighting corruption in Zambia,” the statement read.

“Today’s actions double the number of American and Zambian staff whose employment has been terminated by the US government over the past 18 months for fraud or corrupt practices,” it added.
