Majome said that when she asked Chinamasa to demonstrate that he had followed parliament procedure with the $200 million Afreximbank loan that he said was evidence Government followed the constitutional requirements.
She said Chinamasa was supposed to gazette the terms within 60 days of signing and submitting it for Parliament approval for it to be binding, and that as a rule that it must be referred to the relevant portfolio committee first.
