Minister Avoids State House as Sata Refuses to Receive Report

PRESIDENT Michael Sata this morning refused to receive a report from the Napsa Commission of Inquiry because Justice minister Sebastian Zulu was not available to hand it over to him.  This follows President Sata attack on Tuesday when he described Zulu’s report on Airport Radars as useless.

After the singing of the National Anthem, Commission vice-chairperson Dr Ngosa Simbyakula attempted to deliver the report to President Sata, but the Head of State halted the proceeding and inquired on the whereabouts of Zulu.

He then told permanent secretary in charge of administration at Cabinet Office, Anne Sinyangwe, that he would not allow Dr Simbyakula to implicate himself by presenting the report saying it was a very sensitive matter.

“I’m deferring the presentation of this report, there’s a lot of dust which has been swept under the carpet and the person whom you want to implicate, I never appointed him as chairman,” said President Sata.

“So if they surrender to him I might as well give him ample time to go through this and give me a better report.”

After saying that, President Sata immediately called for the national anthem to close the function.
