ZAMBIAs Finance Minister Felix Mutati said government has clearly defined the structure of offences in the Public Finance bill that was presented to parliament this week. He said this at the launch of the report on the Evaluation of the Public Financial Management System of Zambia in Lusaka.
“We have clearly defined what constitutes misconduct, we have also clearly defined the structure of offences and measures that will be applied to colleagues who are allergic to progress, Mutati said.
The Minister noted that budget execution has remained a huge weakness as officers use funds on workshops and travels.
There has an increase in the advent of misuse of public funds which the Ministry of Finance has dealt through presenting the Public Finance bill which will address consequence management measure for perpetrators.
