MDC-T which is led by Douglas Mwonzora has nominated Gweru Urban legislator Brian Dube to be the chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament following the recalling of Harare East legislator Tendai Biti a few weeks ago by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to Parliament’s unwritten tradition, the Public Accounts Portfolio Committee is chaired by a legislator from the opposition.
The committee has been involved in unearthing acts of corruption that have happened in various state-owned entities especially on issues of procurement.
According to Biti, the committee was finalising its reports that were going to expose corruption that happen in ZESA, Command Agriculture, RBZ and ZINARA.
It will however remain to be seen if the legislators will be up to the task in bringing hard to crack people such as Kuda Tagwirei to Parliament to give oral evidence on various issues.
Making the announcement, Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda said the nomination was made by MDC-T.
“I also have to inform the House that the MDC-T Party has nominated Honourable Brian Dube to serve as Chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee,” he said.
