Mike Mulongoti, Nevers Mumbo express concern on President Sata’s attidude towards Commision of Inquiry reports
Former works and supply minister Mike Mulongoti said that he hopes Republican President Michael Sata is mindful of the consequences of his negative statements on the reports of the commissions of inquiry.
Mr. Mulongoti said that president Sata being the appointing authority should realize the impact of libeling a report of the commission of inquiry useless. Mr. Mulongoti explained to QFM News that as the appointing authority, the outcome of the commissions of inquiry whether bad or good is a shared blame.
Stakeholders in the recent days have expressed concern over President Sata’s rubbishing of some reports of the commissions of inquiries.
And opposition Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) presidential aspirant Dr. Nevers Mumba has charged that Republican President Michael Sata has demonstrated that the commissions of inquiry he set up are a poor way of governance.
Dr. Mumba has agreed with some stakeholders in the country that the president seems to have a predetermined position on the commissions of inquiry. He said that his outburst on the Sebastian Zulu commission of inquiry branding it useless demonstrates that he wants targeted individuals to be prosecuted.
Dr. Mumba in an exclusive interview at his current residence said that the president should ensure that he respects people that he appoints in the commissions of inquiry he sets up.
The former republican vice president has added that the conduct of the president is un-presidential as it is done in public. He also said that the commissions of inquiry are a financial liability to the country.
Dr. Mumba also expressed concern on the president’s attacks on the police service. He recalled that the president promised a lot of things to the police service while in opposition and wonders why he has resorted to attacking them. He said that such attacks have the potential to bring discontent in the police service.
