Zesco advised to account for vehicles used for campaigns
By ALICE NACHILEMBE
The UPND Government elect has advised State Electricity utility company, ZESCO to immediately account for all its vehicles used by the PF during its 2021 General elections campaign.
UPND National Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa said the UPND is aware of manoeuvres by some senior ZESCO employees to register the vehicles under individual PF officials.
Mr Mweetwa said it has come to the attention of the party that a number of vehicles were bought using utility resources but were used in the PF campaigns without due regard for the law.
He said the UPND Government shall not allow the continued abuse of public resources for political expedience hence the need for ZESCO management to immediately own up and retrieve all the vehicles that were still under the custody of the Patriotic Front as that amounts to abuse of public resources and theft.
The UPND Spokesperson also advised all parastatal and other government agencies that had ‘donated’ their fleet the PF to immediately begin the process of recovering and account for those vehicles.
