Government officials from the ministries of Lands and Education as well as Lilongwe city council officials have snubbed a meeting called for by parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee to probe the illegal sale of Livimbo primary school land.
Only Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officials turned up, prompting the committee to cancel the meeting.
Chairperson of the committee Kezzie Msukwa said the officials gave last minute excuses, bordering on busy government work.
“Since they failed to attend the meeting, we have ordered the ministry of Lands to hand-over land documents of Livimbo school to us by the close of business today,” he said.
Msukwa said parliament would subpoena the officials should they fail to handover the documents.
Businessman Nurmahommed Ahmed has encroached the school where he has constructed warehouses in the public school land raising fears of rampant corruption in the ministry of Lands.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
