“ It is our belief as MCP that we will work together for the betterment of this nation without tribalism, regionalism and any other -ism to move forward,” said MCP president and leader of opposition Dr Lazarus Chakwela.

Although he described the meeting as fruitful, the leader of PP in Parliament,  Uladi Mussa observed some shortfalls in ministerial statements on Cashgate, education quota system and students selection to Nkhatabay Secondary School.

“We wish the names of those involved in Cashgate could have been released because some people who are being labelled out there as cashgaters are not those who took part,” he said.

However, Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Samuel Tembenu told the house that it is difficult to come up with the names as the forensic report did not contain them.

“However, looking into the report, we have come up with the names but since there are still cases in court, we may disclose them off record,” he said, but this did not happen.

Leader of government Francis Kasaila  expressed his profound gratitude to all members for their co-operation, dedication to duty and constructive and invaluable contributions during the meeting.

Speaker Richard Msowoya adjourned parliament sine die.

    Do not use cashgate as a gvt political prosecution machine. We want real culprits brought to book, and the money recovered! This whole gvt talk about big fish big fish must stop as the gvt is just trying to buy our sympathy and justify whats to come!

  3. John says:

    Where are the names of the “big fish” going to come from as you are now saying they are not in the report! Are you telling me you will sit down and come up with the reports now as you definately did not disclose them in parliament. Infact, you did not disclose them because there are no names in the report. Waaaaiiit a flipping minute now, is this why TEMBENU AND APM are trying so hard to justify who the big fish political figures will be? They are trying to win the public so that when they release these cooked up names, the public should be on the gvt’s side and have no sympathy for the so called cashgaters? Ayi ndithu, you cant manipulate the general public, we will judge you according to what we know so far. Mwatchera kumwezitu inu. We wont the real cashgaters to be brought to book and not your political opponents/ threats!

    Please, in news media you try to present a story for the fair understanding of your audiences. In other words, try to desist from technical jargon. In this case, how many of your readers would understand the term sine die? I am pretty sure the author of this article, plus the editor, went to a journalism school of some sort and had that course: English for media or Media English right? There are some common technical words that the average readers may understand like alma mater, alumni, Emeritus, Nobel laureate because these are commonly used. But you will agree with me that sine die is not one of them. Apikene? Mwapurika? Mutomva? You know what m sayin?

      I do agree with you. Even me have tried so hard but can’t come up with the real meaning of sine die. I’m one of those that don’t like checking the dictionary. Can someone enlighten me on this one please
