(TIMES) Hichilema challenged on firms’ liquidation

Hichilema challenged on firms’ liquidation
By Times Reporter

CHIEF Government spokesperson, Mike Mulongoti has challenged United Party for National Development (UPND) president, Hakainde Hichilema to tell the nation his role in the liquidation of some former parastatal companies.

Mr Mulongoti said that Mr Hichilema should “come clean” on the matter and state what he gained during the exercise before he could criticise Government on the fight against corruption. “Many people who had worked for the affected companies died before getting their benefits.”

He said the opposition leader who had been part of the liquidating team for some of the former parastatal companies should, therefore, explain himself.

Mr Mulongoti said this on Muvi television news when he commented on Mr Hichilema’s statement that the settlement between the Government and Democratic Republic of Congo’s Katanga governor, Moses Katumbi would frustrate Zambia ’s corruption fight.
