The Tribunal investigating Tourism and Arts Minister Sylvia Masebo’s alleged abuse of office in relation to Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) operations has commenced its sittings today with former Tourism Minister William Harrington who is the complainant taking to the stand as the first witness.

Mr. Harrington 62 has told the tribunal being chaired by Acting Supreme Court Judge Rhoyda Kaoma that his interest in the tribunal is of public and national interest.

Mr. Harrington says this is because Ms. Masebo in her capacity as Tourism Minister breached the Ministerial code of conduct in interfering in the operations of ZAWA.

He stated that among other things, Ms. Masebo breached the Ministerial and Parliamentary code of conduct when she directed the termination of the Safari hunting tenders concession.

Meanwhile former ZAWA Head of procurement, Taulino Banda has told the tribunal that it was not true that the tender committee did not do its work diligently leading to his contract together with those of other four ZAWA management officials having their employment contracts terminated.

Mr. Banda has told the tribunal that it is also not true that was communication leakages between bidders and members of the evaluation committee to which he was part even before evaluation of bidders for the 10 year hunting Safari concession was awarded.

Ms. Masebo based the termination of the safari hunting tenders concession on among other reasons that the evaluation process did not include all three parties that should have included ZAWA, the bidders and the people of the game reserves where the Safari Hunting concession was to be conducted.
