Governance Expert McDonald Chipenzi says government’s decision to take legal action against Confidential Africa following its expose on social cash transfer abuse is a pure waste of public resources.

Mr Chipenzi has wondered why government thinks it has a case against Confidential Africa when it is just a total waste of resources and energy and an exercise in infertility.

He says this action will only make sense unless the state has enough money to waste or there are individuals who wants to use it as a conduit to syphon public resources .

Mr Chipenzi has indicated that if government feels injured by Confidential Africa publications , why can’t it give the right information.

” this is why we need access to information law because it will help us remove speculation when it comes to unverified reports”, Mr Chipenzi has said.

He has urged government not to waste public resources but instead pay student allowances or council workers.

On October 3, Information Minister Dora siliya at a Media Weekly briefing announced government possibilities of taking legal action against Confidential Africa claiming that there has been smear campaigns perpetuated by Confidential Africa which hurt Zambians.

And on October 5, The Minister through her tweet account indicated that government has begun a process against the Africa confidential for smear campaign against the people of Zambia.

    what ever you say is taken politically.

    You are a hh tonga die hard.

  2. Dora was just muster.bating about sueing AC to deflect attention from the many scandals rocking GRZ ……she knows, we know , they know, that PF are up to their eyeballs in corruption starting from lungu…..

  3. This chimpanzee also, seeking attention over a non-matter, who cares about Africa confidential and whether it is being sued or not, or whether Dora is posturing or not? Make yourself useful iwe kambanga..

  4. this gorilla will never see sense in anything until a tonga is in state house, ask him about the namwala refugees he will answer you in mapatizya language. he is always negative about Zambia as if the country is on fire. badala
