Now Masebo convenes illegal meeting to legitimise hunting licences to her partners

Tourism minister Sylvia Masebo has called for an illegal  meeting with professional hunters after illegally cancelling the tenders of hunting safaris and sacking of five top officials from the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA).
According to an advertisement in Monday’s edition of the PF run Zambia Daily Mail, the meeting will take place on Wednesday at Mulungushi International Conference.
“Notice is hereby given to Professional Hunters Association of Zambia, Safari hunters Association of Zambia, Wildlife Producers Association of Zambia, Chiefs in Game Management Areas, Community Resources Board Chairperson, Local Communities, Civil Society in Tourism and Non Governmental Organisation in the tourism sector, that there will be a consultative meeting on hunting safari concessions on Wednesday 9th January 2013 at Mulungushi International conference centre at 10: 30 hrs,” read the advertisement in  the Daily Mail.
The said meeting however is illegal because Masebo illegally cancelled the tenders without the approval of the Zambia Public Procurement Authority (ZPPA).

By cancelling the tender, Masebo was in essence interfering with the tender process, an act that amount to breaching the ZPPA Act.
But sources in the tourism sectors have said that tomorrows meeting has been called with the sole objective of legitimatizing her decision to awarding hunting safaris to companies run by her friends, partners  and relatives.
The companies that Masebo was supporting for the hunting safaris are Chimbwi Safaris, Mangomba Safaris, Matopi Safaris Muchinga Adventures and Luangwa Crocodiles which were  all not successful in being given hunting areas resulting into the minister claiming that there was corruption in allocating areas.
“We know that this meeting is meant to legitimatize the allocation of blocks to her friends. This meeting is illegal because the tender is still valid as no allegations that she has made has to this date being proved. This is pure corruption on her part,” said the sources in the industry.

    What masebo is doing corruption in broad day light. Where is the board for her to start issueing licences to her acquitances? She dissolved the bord and fired top management and that was a deliberate move so that she can manuovre her hidden agenda properly.time will catch up with her sooner than she realise. Her offensive actions will leave to tell a story.

    I think this has turned into a game now in Zambia and these ministers don’t want to listen. Africa’s wildlife is under threat as never before. Trafficking in ivory, rhino horn, and other wildlife products is more organised, widespread, and dangerous than they have been in the past. It is fueled by demand from Asian medicine market and organized poaching gangs. This demand has created highly profitable and organized international poaching criminal syndicates who deploy advanced technologies ranging from night vision scopes, silenced weapons, darting equipment and helicopters to carry out their mission. Zambia, do something about your resources. Bloggers on hunting sites as far as Dallas have lost their minds wondering if hunting is banned permanently. Some are suggesting of introducing new ways to make hunting seem or look good in the public eye. Some are confused if it’s only a year ban. Either or they know they are losing money they steal from Zambia.
