The leader of opposition also the former Public Accounts Committee chairman Nathan Nandala Mafabi has warned the new committee boss Kasiano Wadri about the challenges ahead of the committee.
During the handover ceremony Mafabi said that during his term of office he faced a lot of challenges which include threats intimidation and backlog. He made emphasis on the backlog saying that it was the committee’s major challenge which needed serious attention.
He also pointed out resistance from the former speaker of parliament to have the committees reports tabled in parliament.
