THE office of the Public Protector should not be moribund but look into the recent firing of five ZICTA directors who come from the same region as the move is seen to be tribally inclined, PF Chairperson Davis Chama has said.
Mr Chama in an interview said that the firing of the five directors at ZICTA was unheard of any where in the world and it was evident that the move was tribally motivated.
He said he suspected the reason the five were let go was because the government wanted to safe guard something after the viral audio involving Home Affairs Permanent secretary Joseph Akafumba and Special assistant to the president for politics Levy Ngoma.
Mr Chama said the office of the Public Protector needed to move in and investigate these matters rather than being quiet even when they were protected by law.
“We tend to wonder why offices like those of the Public Protector have been in place when they are moribund and do not function like their counterparts in South Africa who are on top of their game,” he said.
He said there was need for individuals in this institution to start functioning otherwise there was no need to be in existence. Mr Chama said such persecutions were not just at ZICTA but even institutions like ZESCO and most security wings who could not just speak out.
Mr Chama alleged that the UPND regime was stinking with tribalism as they were only targeting a group from the same region.
