Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini has asked the Vice President Inonge Wina to issue a Ministerial statement in Parliament during the course of the week to address the allegation that President Edgar Lungu’s speech to Parliament last Friday was leaked.

Dr Matibini says the Vice President should clarify the matter in the public domain.


The Speaker was ruling on a point of order raised by Chadiza MP Allan Mbewe.

Mr. Mbewe rose on a point of order asking if the Vice President was in order to state why the President’s speech appeared in some newspaper before it was delivered to the House.
