Nchanga Constituency National Restoration Party(NAREP) losing candidate Judith Kabemba has expressed a concern over the monies the Patriotic Front (PF) ministers amassed during their illegal stay in office after the dissolution of Parliament this year, reports Pan African Radio journalist Hermit Hachilonde.
She suggested that once the money is paid back it should be put into good use by setting up a national project that can benefit the nation under the supervision of an independent person to be appointed by the Patriotic Front Government.
Ms.Kabemba cited the purchase of materials such as mattresses, blankets and equipment for Kitwe and Ndola Central Hospitals and the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) as one of the proper channels where that money can be directed.
She revealed that a number of Zambians on the Copperbelt have raised concerns regarding the guarantee that the monies from former ministers will benefit the people and not to be channeled into ventures.
Meawhile, Ms.Kabemba has advised Zambians to get a leaf from an unnamed SADC country where some Ministers allegedly opened an account with an agenda to embezzle donor funds for disaster.
” In view of this I feel that it could be a good idea that a national project be identified and all monies repaid be directed there with a person appointed to supervise these works in order to make sure that these monies are channeled to the Intended beneficiaries.” Ms kabemba noted.
“One such project would be to purchase hospital materials such as mattresses, blankets,machinery, and other equipment for Kitwe and Ndola central hospitals as well as the UTH”
“The status of these materials are pathetic in our hospitals” ms. Kabemba said
