The Ministry of Tourism and Arts has clarified that the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) remains operational.

Tourism and Arts Acting Permanent Secretary Monde Gwaba said in a statement that there has been some misunderstandings regarding Tourism Minister Jean Kapata’s ministerial statement over the transformation of ZAWA into a Government department.

Ms Gwaba said ZAWA will only cease to exist through an Act of Parliament which will be tabled in Parliament in June 2015.

“Following the Ministerial statement delivered in Parliament by the Minister of Tourism and Arts Hon. Jean Kapata, M.P on Friday 13th March 2015 on the transformation of ZAWA into a ministerial department, some misunderstandings have arisen on the status and operations of ZAWA during the transitional period. The common misunderstandings are that ZAWA legally ceased to exist on that day and that therefore management and staff of ZAWA could from then onwards not perform any functions for and on behalf of the institution,” Ms Gwaba said.

She said before that, ZAWA will remain a body corporate and with powers and functions under the current law.

“In the same manner, ZAWA will honour all its obligations with stakeholders. In addition, the current management and staff of ZAWA are within their mandate to represent the institution in all for a where its representation is required.”

Ms. Gwaba has since urged stakeholders and the business community to continue their business transactions with the institutions.
