Ms Masebo has since stated that she has no intention of stepping down despite the allegations leveled against her.
Ms. Masebo has told journalists in Lusaka today that those calling for her resignation are hired guns of what she has termed as some wildlife criminals.
The Minister who could not hide her emotions said Mr. Harrington has no powers to tell her to step aside until after the Tribunal investigating her has concluded its sittings.
Ms Masebo says only President Michael Sata has the power to ask her to resign.
Ms Masebo says Mr. Harrington now has the opportunity to go to tribunal and prove his allegations with evidence.
