The finance committee of parliament has made a recommendation that the House should stop the practice where Government helps the Council of state and the MPs to secure loans when it comes to vehicles acquisitions, this was included in the finance committee's report.
This comes after the huge backlash from the general public on huge sums of monies acquire in loans and also with motions filed by Mr Okudzato Ablakwa calling his fellow colleagues to reject the proposals by government to make available to every MP an amount of $28 million in car loan.
Despite this recommendation, the finance committee expects that this new direction will see implementations in the near future whilst they consider the proposals on desk which seek to contract loans to finance the procurement of vehicles to members of parliament and council of state members. But has called on Parliament to ensure such method is not continued in the dates ahead.
Here are a few words to note; “Accordingly, the Committee strongly recommends to Parliament the discontinuation of the current vehicle loan arrangement for MPs and Council of State Members. Members of Parliament and Members of the Council of State should have similar duty post vehicle arrangements as other Article 71 officeholders. And the Committee respectfully recommends that Parliament and the Parliamentary Service take the necessary steps to ensure that this happens.”
“The instant vehicle loan arrangement for MPs and Council of State Members before us today should therefore be the last one the state is sponsoring,” it said.
