Lubinda Haabazoka and other senior members of Economics Association of Zambia board of directors paid themselves summit report preparation allowances for the work that they did not do. As the Economics Research Unit of ZANACO prepared report.
In fact the recommendations, statistics and graphs in the report are a copy and paste job of the ZANACO 2018/2019 mid-year economic review outlook and other previous daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly economic reports for the period up to January – July 2019.
There are also a lot of irregularities in the usage of summit finances of which 75 percent was paid by government through the Common Services Unit of Cabinet Office. We challenge Haabazoka to engage the Auditor General’s Office to account for taxpayers’ money.
