Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini says Vice President Inonge Wina will tell the house on the findings of the leakage of President Edgar Lungu’s speech to parliament recently.
Responding to a point of order from Chadiza Member of Parliament Allan Mbewe who reminded the Speaker that seven days ultimatum he had given the Vice President to issue a statement on how the speech was leaked 24 hours before President Lungu issued it in parliament had expired
“I must inform the house that clerks have not just been sitting on their desks. They have been actively engaging the Vice President’s office. Soon rather than later she will come back to the house and inform them of what may have happened,” he said.
Earlier yesterday, Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani had said that investigations on the leakage of government documents had reached an advanced stage.
Libongani said the police would soon update the nation on the progress.
In parliament the house learnt that 158 Zambia Postal Services employees will be offloaded following the institution’s failure to cope with competition against new players in the market.
The Deputy Minister of communication said that ZAMPOST had suffered heavy loss of revenue from the collapse of Swift Cash, high operational costs, debts forcing them to offload some employees.
The income drop suffered from the entry into the market by institutions like Zoona and Shoprtite Money is pegged from K3.1 million to K1.2 million.
