The Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) says Auditor General Anna Chifungula deserves support for the job that she is doing in highlighting abuse and theft of public funds by senior government officials.
FDD Spokesperson Antonio Mwanza says deputy ministers accused of fraudulent purchase of second hand ambulances in their respective constituencies should not threaten or insult the Auditor General but allow her do her job.
Mr. Mwanza says Labour Deputy Minister Ronald Chitotela and his Agriculture counterpart Rodgers Mwewa should know that the Auditor General has the constitutional duty to safeguard tax payers’ money.
He has since implored the Anti Corruption Commission to swiftly and decisively act on the Auditor General%u2019s report with regards the alleged fraudulent activities of the named parliamentarians.
Mr. Mwanza has further urged President Michael Sata to immediately suspend the two ministers from their ministerial positions to pave way for investigations.
