Former Tourism minister William Harrington has applied for judicial review to the High Court to determine as to whether or not pecuniary advantage was obtained by new Zambia Wildlife Authority-ZAWA- officers arising from Sylvia Masebo’s action.

Ms. Masebo during her tenure as Tourism Minister dismissed five ZAWA Officers on allegation of corruption.

In the affidavit in support filed in the Lusaka High Court Mr. Harrington has requested that he be granted leave to determine whether there are various classes of pecuniary advantage.

The former tourism minister in the Frederick Chiluba regime has applied to the court to be granted leave for Judicial Review so that the matter can be settled once and for all.

Mr. Harrington’s latest legal move follows the recommendation by the Royda Kaoma led Tribunal to clear Ms Masebo of gaining pecuniary advantage when she canceled the ZAWA tender.

The Royda Kaoma tribunal was investigating Ms Masabo’s alleged abuse of authority of Office during her tenure as Tourism Minister.

On the other hand Ms Masebo has also dragged Mr. Harrington to court claiming damages she suffered during the tribunal set up to investigate her.
