Vice president Dr. Guy Scott has failed to disclose how much the government has spent towards the up-keep of Malawian Judge, Lovemore Chikopa who has been in the country for about five months.
Dr. Scott told Parliament that he needs to be given a notice to have all expenses incurred by the Malawian judge who came to Zambia to head a Tribunal but is now stuck after a court injunction blocked the proceedings.
“Would I come to this house with figures on how much it costs to keep a judge, accommodated and served in Lusaka? He should have given me some advance notice. I would have given him all the Kwachas and Ngwees spent,” Dr. Scott responded after MMD Kasempa Member of Parliament rose to find out how much money had so far been spent. This was during Vice president Question time on Friday morning.
This information may not be known at least for now as Parliament has since adjourned
