Corruption Watch (ZAWA), 2nd Edition

We continue to keep watch over the evolving situation regarding Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA).

The Post yesterday published more developments on the ZAWA saga. It revealed that the Norwegian government was extremely upset over ZAWA’s payment of K1.4 billion to Tomorrow Investments and has since suspended financial aid to ZAWA.

In today's article, we have learnt that Norway has demanded that the removal of ZAWA Director General Dr Lewis Saiwana from his position following audit revelations that he allowed Tomorrow Investments to undertake road construction projects, failure to which they will maintain their suspension of aid to the institution. Post sources reveal that the Norwegian government had given conditions, which the Zambian government should fulfill, in order for that government to resume its financial aid to the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA).

    The "Corruption Watch" is a great idea, helping the public keep their eyes on the 'ball', and also ensuring the ugly stigma sticks.
