ACB Director Resin Mzikamanda has disclosed that his organisation has started profiling properties and freezing bank accounts of 60 ccompanies involved in theft and fraud at capital hill.
According to ACB director this is part of assert recovery drive that the bureau is undertaken . Over 81 companies have so far been involved in the cash gate scam and that investigations to almost 60 out of 81 companies have been completed
Meanwhile public accounts commetee has made a U-turn on its earlier decison that it would meet the budget director in camera. The bureau decision by the committee could have meant that the media could have not been allowed to attend to the proceedings and could have contradicted the parliamentary standing orders which clearly stipulets that all committee meetings of parliamentary are public events
It is expected that the the budget diredtor who is at the center of cashgate scam is expected to appear before the committee any any day.
However the committee has since suggested that ACB should recommend that all principal officers that their ministries are involved directly in the cash-gate should suspended according to the public finance management act.
