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

Filed under: Breaking News |

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.

  3. Sata’s love for Sylvia Masebo is not news, the old man tasted Masebo’s fruit whilst still at the council and since then the man has been hypnotized.. i admit masebo had the looks and a bit of brains back then but now shes just a common prostitute.

  4. I hope the meeting we also look at the 2012 Resident Hunting Licences which were cancelled by Masebo.we need to be refunded our money which we spend when we participated in the 2012 Resident Hunting raffle.I bought 10 forms @k70,000(kr70) each..I spent k700,000(kr700). I was successful in one game management area..It is only fair that ZAWA re-imburses all the people that participated in the cancelled raffle.

  5. Sometimes people like Masebo should be allowed to act in the manner she did at ZAWA. There is too much red tape m’boma. Before you realise all animals would have been airlifted and only remain with monkeys at state House.

  6. And if you are all saying this is illegal, where on earth is ZPPA? why are they quiet? Or does this mean that they have no powers over the Minister?

  9. THE ONLY WAY PF CAN BRING ABOUT POSITIVE CHANGE FOR THE PEOPLE IS TO ENSURE THAT EVERY INSTITUTION IS SHAKEN, RESTRUCTURED AND SYSTEMS REWORKED.

    THE PRESIDENT MUST BE COMMENDED FOR DETESTING GOVERNMENT WORKSHOPS WHICH WERE MEANT TO RESTRUCTURE CIVIL SERVANT’S STOMACHS ONLY. HE FIRED CHIBILITI IN NATIONAL INTEREST AND WE HAVE NEW FACES AT CABINET OFFICE. WE EXPECT BETTER SYSTEMS WHICH WILL IMPROVE PUBLIC SERVICES DELIVERY. ALREADY SAVINGS FROM WORKSHOPS ARE HELPING THIS GOVERNMENT SPEND FOR PRIORITY SOCIAL SECTORS WHICH WAS NOT THE CASE IN THE PAST!!!

    THAT IS A POSITIVE CHANGE WHICH SHOULD FOLLOW EVERY INSTITUTION, ZAWA INCLUSIVE.

  11. Sata’s unfulfilled 10 campaign promises
    January 6, 2013 | Filed under: Special Comments | Posted by: Mumba
    File: Sata during a campaign rally
    By Francisco Slimchile Kiko

    1) I will demolish shanty towns and build better “planned houses in 90 days.(ati tafakamo na ma shower)
    2) When PF comes into power there will be no load-shedding, no abuse of the public media and we will do away with the Public Order Act because it’s a colonial law.
    3) PF will create employment for the youths( tell the youths to smoke chamba for the last time today because when PF comes into power there will no time for them to smoke.)
    4) Better sanitation for everyone, 46 years of independence Zambians can not be using pit latrines. Under PF cholera will a thing of the past.
    5) We will increase bags of fertilizer for our farmers.
    6) People driven constitution within 90 days. Will also enact the Freedom of Information Bill.
    7) Reintroduce new taxes for the mines (windfall tax?)
    8) Build high/secondary schools in every ward. Children from George compound are performing bad because they are failing to mingle with children from Kabulonga.
    9) We shall not employ cadres as civil servants( district commissioners, ambassadors, permanent secretaries, etc) those jobs are for professionals.
    10) All small businesses will be for the Zambian people there is no way the Chinese all the way from China can be coming here to cook nshima and sell chickens at Soweto martket. Umwina chaina alikwata ichalo chakwe na imwe ba Pikiti lesa alimipela ichalo chenu.

    • Now this is what I call an issue based argument. Mukelebai, this recital will shame any loud mouthed PF supporter. This was music to their eyes at those mass rallies filled with blind hysteria about “pa bwato” Now their leader can’t hold a rally, later on a press conference because these are the kind of reminders they know they will not want to face. So now how do we roll? Public order act reinforced and misinterpreted, arrests of opposition leaders on tramped up charges, countless reshuffles (at least 3 per month!). Am telling you people even the comedian Mwinemushi is a far better leader than the person in Plot 1 and I don’t mean this as a joke – this country is on serious auto pilot, driven only by systems left in place by previous regimes!!

  32. The statement attributed to Silvia Masebo on this web site regarding GBM is outrageous to say the least. Why should she come to Kasama and talk about the respectable member of parliament and cabinet as reported? Is GBM part of the tourism program in the Northern circuit? She was lucky not to be lynched. If she had uttered those silly words about GBM opnly, it would have been a sad story for her right now. Let her consult her long time intimate friend of Lusaka City Council with Elephatisis type of thinking. Kasama waters are deep and turbulent and GBM is the master here who is never easily intimidated like the Mwakalombes of this world. So watch out Silvia, dont open a door that you are not capable of closing.

    • My dear Monday B, this is how political prostitutes operate, with no political direction. MASEBO wasted tax payers money just to come and destroy the good name of GBM. You know what, who ever is using her is having sleepless nights because he’s seen that GBM is not crumbling as they continue wasting time with their childish rumbling.
