Elected Monarchism

It is incredible that in a country called a democracy, the President with a few advisors could conclude an arrangement to spend K240 million of public funds without even a courtsey of laying the terms before Parliament. Not even the Ministry of Finance was legally authorised to supervise the public funds involved. This [elected monarchism] cost Zambia its national sovereignty and plenty of money.
