President Lazarus Chakwera is yet to act on Secretary to the President and Cabinet (SPC) colleen Zamba following her alleged involvement in influencing dubious fuel deals.
Yesterday, during her appearance before Public Appointments Committee (PAC) of Parliament, the former deputy chief executive officer for Nation Oil Company (NOCMA) Limited Helen Buluma complicated Zamba in the fuel saga.
According to Buluma, Zamba was pressurizing her to award fuel supply contracts to list of companies without following proper procedures.
Buluma claimed that Zamba forced her to involve a person identified as ‘Chief’ from Nigeria and a Malawian based motivational speaker, Evalista Kamwangala to offer them fuel contracts.
Chakwera has previously fired and suspended several top government officials over alleged misconduct including Zamba’s predecessor Zangazanga Chikhosi, former energy minister Newton Kambala, former Lands Minister Kezzi Msukwa, even Vice President Saulos Chilima who was stripped off his delegated duties.
Owing to the revelations that Buluma made yesterday, the public is waiting on Chakwera to act.
