Masebo ready to resign over ZAWA
Tourism minister Sylvia Masebo says she is ready to resign if proved her action in the Zambia Wildlife Association saga was unconstitutional.
Masebo dissolved the ZAWA board and cancelled tenders after her partners were not awarded contracts.
She says anyone with a problem on how she is handling the ZAWA issue has a constitutional right to report her to investigative wings.
Masebo says she would not have acted in the manner she did if the evidence of alleged corruption at ZAWA was not before her table.
She says there was not personal in her actions.
And Qfm reports that she will not be intimidated by mafia tactics aimed at derailing her efforts aimed at restoring sanity in the wildlife sector.
Masebo claims that she is ready to make unpopular decisions as long as such decisions are in the best interest of the country.
She adds that the lack of proper management of the wildlife sector has led to the extinction of the cats which include lions, tigers and leopards, among other animal species in the country.
The minister was speaking during a consultative meeting with the Safari Hunters in Lusaka on Wednesday.
