Home affairs minister says No animals were received and no animals will be received from the Zambia prison services.
Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has dismissed claims by UPND Choma Central Member of Parliament Cornelius Mwetwa that he has received 10 heards of cattle from the Zambia Correction service.
Speaking in an interview at the Mukambo border with PF reporters , Kampyongo said the Zambia Correctional Service Commissioner General Chisela Chileshe only made a Public pledge in a JEST that 10 animals would be given to him minus even indicating what kind of animals they will be.
A jest is a thing said or done for amusement; a joke.
But interestingly Kampyongo said that ‘the said issue has since been handled administratively by Home Affairs Permanent secretary and ZCS Commissioner General’.
Alas we remain wondering whether what has been handled administratively is the jest (Joke) or the donated cows.
