ACC petitioned to investigate Masebo for abusing public money during her tribunal

masebo 1 masebo 2Former Transport and Communication Minister William Harrington has called on the Anti Corruption Commission to investigate former Tourism Minister Sylvia Masebo for alleged abuse of authority of office. In a letter addressed to ACC Director General and copied to President Michael Sata, Harrington alleges that Masebo used finances from the Zambia Wildlife Authority(ZAWA) to bring in witnesses to testify for her in the recently ended Roydah Kaoma tribunal. Harrington says Masebo was not supposed to use government resources to bring in Witnesses as the tribunal was formed to investigate Masebo and not the Zambian government which footed the bills.Masebo is alleged to have brought in a number of witnesses including chiefs and some of them were flown into Lusaka at huge government expense. The tribunal that was called by Harrington was investigating Masebo’s alleged misconduct on how she dissolved the Zawa board, fired senior managers and cancelled 19 duly awarded tenders.
