Justice should prevail on the oil scam says Mulongoti.
Former Works and Supply Minister Mike Mulongoti has called on law enforcement agencies to move in and ensure that erring officers cited in the Commission of inquiry on the Energy regulation board (ERB) are brought to book.
Mr. Mulongoti has told Qfm in an interview that investigative wings must swing into action and carryout a probe and not wait for instructions from politicians.
He said it is unfortunate that government lost about K2 trillion through illegal contracts awarded to suspected companies for the procurement of petroleum products.
The former minister explains that Zambia has adequate legislation capable of ensuring that public resources are recovered.
Recently, the Commission of Inquiry constituted to investigate the operations of the Energy Regulation Board and the procurement of crude oil revealed that from 2007 to 2011 the country lost about K2 trillion through acts of malpractices in the procurement system.
Commission chairperson Wynter Kabimba said the alleged corruption in the oil procurement system involved officials from the Zambia Public Procurement Authority (ZPPA) the Ministry of Energy and the ERB.
