Addressing the parastatals’ bosses, he warned, “We know that you are funding them and you will be liable”
Chilima further promised to name more parastatals that are using State funds to finance campaigns at his next rally in Kasungu.
He made the remarks during a rally at Naotcha Primary school ground on Sunday.
