MMD Youths have demanded for a clear explanation from ZESCO Managing Director Victor Mundende on why 5 Directors were fired from the utility company.
MMD Youth Chairperson Dauzen Tembo said there is need for the Managing Director to tell the nation why those people were unceremoniously fired from the company.
Mr Tembo said ZESCO belongs to Zambians hence decisions such as the one made to get rid of the 5 Directors should be communicated to the owners of the company so that they know whether the decision was made in their best interest.
He also wondered why Zambians have not been to told what the 5 Directors did as the number was to high for it to be just swept under the rags and continue with business as if nothing has happened.
Meanwhile the Anti-Corruption Commission is said to be hot on the heels of Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO) Managing Director Victor Mundende.
Mundende is allegedly being investigated for the purchase of second hand utility Toyota Land cruiser vehicles.
ZESCO is said to have paid for the second hand vehicles at the price of brand new vehicles.
The second hand vehicles are said to have allegedly been bought from Dubai using Lusaka Businessman, David Nama’s firm.
Following the dissolution of the Board and the dismissal of Directors at ZESCO, Mundende is in fight of his life to survive and ward-off an arrest and potential dismissal.
On Friday, Mundende unleashed over 10 policemen to search the house and farm of his former Director of Human Resources Lastone Mumba who he suspects is the whistle blower and potential witness in the corruption at ZESCO.
The officers that stormed Mumba’s residence claim he was suspected of being in possession of “classified material” documents related to the shady and dodgy procurements at ZESCO.
Mundende shocked the nation when he fired all management directors without giving any formal explanation or reasons.
