Balaka North Member of Parliament, Lucius Banda, asked Minister of Information Patricia Kaliati that government should provide free Wi-Fi internet access within the House of Parliament so they can be logged online.
Banda called for wireless internet access to be made available around Parliament so that MPs can be able to “Google” on matters arising.
“I think having internet will allow us to research properly (online),” said Banda.
He said the internet will also allow MPs to “compare other things across the borders.”
Said Banda:“For example the issue of maize purchase in Zambia, we can easily crosscheck with our neighbouring country while in session.”
Banda said “it’s not practical” to have no wireless LAN (local area network) at parliament.
Minister of Information Kaliati said parliament leadership sould liase with e-government officers on lack of wireless internet access.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
