Space narrows for ‘pilferers’


STEVEN MVULA, Parliament
SECRETARY to the Treasury Fredson Yamba says the appropriate action to take against public officers cited for financial misappropriation in the Auditor General’s report is to fire, arrest and prosecute them.

And Public Accounts Committee chairperson Howard Kunda has urged Mr Yamba to publish names of officers cited for financial irregularities in the Auditor General’s report.
Mr Yamba, however, said the provision for punitive measures for such public officers does not exist in the current Public Finance Act, hence the need to revise the piece of legislation.
