MMD President Nevers Mumba has written to Finance Minister Felix Mutati seeking the truth on Zambia’s true debt position.
In a letter dated July 31st 2017 addressed to Mr Mutati and made available to the media, Dr Mumba is requesting Mr Mutati to state the final position on Zambia’s debt position after he issued conflicting figures in Parliament.
The MMD leader now says his party intends to further raise this question of clarification on the floor of Parliament where your statement was given.
“Arising from your address in parliament when you announced the national debt figure as $7.2 billion after your initial figure of $17.2 billion was corrected by your office, we have embarked on a long search for the truth. Attached to this note is the outcome of our research, which actually reveals that your earlier figure of $17.2 billion is closer to the truth than your last figure of $7.2 billion,” the opening statement of the letter read.
