My Minister already cleared the air on fire tenders – LunguBy Mukosha Funga on 28 Sep 2017
President Edgar Lungu says his Minister of Local government Vincent Mwale already cleared the air on fire tenders in Parliament.
And President Lungu says he will be guided by Parliament and other governance institutions on whether or not to extend the Threatened State of Emergency.
Speaking to journalists when he arrived from Angola on Tuesday, President Lungu however insisted that those with evidence of corruption in the procurement of 42 fire tenders at a cost of $42 million should assist investigative wings.
“I was with the Minister of Local government today and as far as he is concerned, the matter was above board, it is a matter which went to court, it is a matter which went for arbitration and he even issued a statement in Parliament explaining everything. Now if you are unhappy with that but you cannot give the truth then there is a problem,” President Lungu said .
And President Lungu said he would make consultations on whether or not to extend the Threatened State of Emergency.
“I don’t govern alone, I govern with other institutions, Parliament is there and the public is there, the police are there so for me, I will be guided by everyone else and then I’ll let my colleagues in Parliament know and if they think that we are safe, then that’s fine,” said President Lungu.
Meanwhile, Mwale told ZNBC news that the Head of State will soon meet his Congolese counterpart Joseph Kabila to discuss issues of peace and security in the region.
