Speaker must 'walk the talk' on corruption

EDITOR — Coalition Against Corruption (CAC) the leading anti corruption organisation in the country urges the Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda to actually “walk the talk” when condemning corruption.

The call by CAC follows the attributes by Mudenda in which he castigated legislators who abused a fuel facility provided by the August house thus depriving the State of hard-earned tax payers’ money.

On September 13, 2013, CAC delivered a letter to the speaker’s office at Parliament urging Mudenda to actually push a motion calling for asset declaration  by parliamentarians but nothing has been heard of from the Speaker with regards to the proposal.

CAC believes that asset declaration actually assists in curbing corruption among legislators but we have been amazed by the total silence that the Speaker has displayed since we handed him the petition.

Hence, CAC urges Mudenda to push for asset declaration before Treasury releases money for Constituency Development Funds(CDFs) .

Failure to do so will result in further looting of public funds.

Let’s reject corruption.
