Government has abolished the Zambia Wildlife Authority-Zawa.
Tourism and Arts Minister Jean Kapata says Zawa will now exist as a department in the ministry of Tourism and Arts.
Ms Kapata has told parliament that this has been done in a bid to address the many problems that Zawa faced.
The Minister says the move follows a Cabinet decision of November 2014 to transform Zawa into a government department.
She says the implementation of the reforms will not result in job losses.
Ms Kapata said this when she delivered a ministerial statement in parliament this morning.
