Parley enhances oversight on financial management


STEVEN MVULA, Parliament
SPEAKER of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini says Parliament has dedicated three committees to the consideration of compliance reports of the Auditor General in a bid to enhance its oversight role of public financial management.

These are Committee on Parastatal Bodies, Public Accounts Committee and Committee on Local Government Accounts.
Dr Matibini said in the past, after presentation of the national budget by the Minister of Finance, the House would proceed to consider and approve the budget without input of the committees, a process he said was not consultative.
