The true cost of the Task Force was revealed this week via this Justice Ministry press release. It turns the Task Force gobbled up a staggering $13.5m in legal fees and in excess of $10m on security and other meaningless tasks. The fight against plunder in the end turned out to simply be another initiative for people to enrich themselves with nothing to show for it. Once again the Zambian people (and some donors) were short changed, as I argued here. News has it that Auditor General is moving in to clear the decks.
