Privatization Inquiry Yet to Be Tabled In Cabinet- Mwanakatwe

Privatization Inquiry Yet to Be Tabled In Cabinet- Mwanakatwe

Cabinet is yet to table the issue of whether an inquiry into the privatization of Zambian assets can be instituted or not.

Minister of Finance Margaret Mwanakatwe says at the point the institution of this inquiry has been discussed and decided upon in Cabinet, it will be made public.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe says the nation will be informed of the opening of this inquiry through the government spokesperson at an appropriate time.

In an interview with Q-News Mrs. Mwanakatwe has however declined to state whether or not the inquest into the transfer of control of national enterprises is part of the Cabinet agenda items.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe says Cabinet issues are confidential matters that cannot be discussed through the media.

He states that, as Minister of Finance, she will therefore not discuss Cabinet matters through the media whether such matters have been discussed or are scheduled for discussion.

The Minister of Finance says she can only discuss a tabled or scheduled to be tabled matter if Cabinet agrees that such a matter be put in public domain.

She says she is, in this case, unable to also state whether or not an inquiry into the privatization of Zambian assets will in future be an agenda item in Cabinet.

    This careless looting of public assets must be followed up to the end and looters punished severely , and looted money put back in government coffers.
    If this government fails the future government will do it , the rot must be sorted out any one found wanting should dance to the tune of the law .
    Now we have seen these thieves bragging with plundered resources have be come big headed in politics, we cannot allow criminals to be at the helm of leadership it is immoral.
    It is curse that would haunt the whole nation if left unpunished.
