Ministers playing truant from parliament to be charged

Jacob Mudenda , the speaker of the National Assembly has warned that Ministers who play truant and do not attend parliamentary sessions or committee meetings may be charged with contempt of parliament.

Mudenda told the house last week:

The clerks will make the appropriate roll call and we will deal with the absent ministers during this session,

…I believe that you had also assured us that going forward, each time you would inform us of the ministers who would have applied to you in writing because the provisions in that Standing Order are very clear. They must seek leave of absence in writing. There are some ministers who are not here and we need to know those who have complied with the provisions of Standing Orders so that those who have not, can be charged with contempt of Parliament as provided for in that Standing Order.
