    Go and tell them the truth, we will help you if need be to prove that the prices of those wheelbarrows were corruptly inflated. We know what Scania sells brand new of those trucks and we know how much making the road costs on average in SADC Region. Do not be intimidated.

    I hope you did your research b efore making that accusation. We are tired of leaders making wild accusations at govt. which they cannot back up with facts- all for gaining political mileage. Claims of assasination attempts on one leader are yet to be presented before the ICC (that is if they ever will). Even when a house fly sits on them, one ECL and his govt. is responsible. Be serious and responsible!!

    @ Gary it’s incumbent on government to explain to the citizenry in clear terms when demanded by the people. It’s one way of educating the people and addressing the transparency question. Silavwe needs no research as his concern and many others too the below satisfactory explanation of how an astronomical expenditure was created by government which raised eyebrows! Internet Technology allows all users access to information and what it has exposed on the 42 acquired fire trucks costing $ 1 million each is not justified and it is just not right not to speak out on government excesses! A $1 million fire truck is far more better than what Zambians through their taxes got!

    Office of Public Protector as name suggests is on the Public’s side, so be assured, summoning of Silavwe is not like that by ACC!
