Speaker Of Parliament Worried Over Qualilty Of MPs

Speaking during a panel discussion at the 6th CEOs Africa Round Table meeting in Victoria Falls yesterday, Advocate Jacob Mudenda said Parliament needs quality in terms of legislators.

He was responding to concerns about lack of capacity by Parliament to addresse issues such as budget deficit. Mudenda said in 2014 he produced a book on economic literacy for Members of Parliament and organised a training workshop which was adjourned prematurely after the majority of Parliamentarians failed to grasp issues. Said Mudenda:

I’m worried about the level of politicians that come to Parliament. There are few who can articulate issues in Parliament. If you look at different portfolio committees we involve politicians from different political persuasions but sometimes we don’t have quality in terms of personnel and economic literacy in Parliament.
