Kabanda : Past Cabinet Was Selfish

The Citizens Forum has described the just dissolved parliament as the most selfish the country has ever had.
Executive secretary Simon Kabanda has told QFM radio station that MPs in the dissolved parliament focused so much on personal benefits by increasing their allowances at the expense of the people they were supposed to represent.
Mr. Kabanda adds that parliament also failed to give the people of Zambia a progressive national constitution despite spending so much money on the constitution making process.
And Mr. Kabanda has urged the aspiring parliamentary candidates not be pre-occupied with selfish interests by trying to use parliament to amass wealth.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kabanda has observed the need for cabinet to become a separate entity from parliament after this year’s elections.
He notes that once this is done it will help in curbing the abuse of public resources by the ruling party among other things.
