THE Failure by President Hichilema to declare his assets has allegedly disappointed opposition PeP President Sean Tembo.
Tembo has since given President Hakainde Hichilema 14 days ultimatum for him to declare his assets to the public.
In a statement to Kachepa360, Tembo writes;
As Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP) we are extremely disappointed with the continued failure by President Hakainde Hichilema to declare his assets to the public upon ascending to the Presidency. This is despite the promises that Mr Hichilema made while in opposition that he will run a transparent and accountable Government whereby all senior public officials including himself will declare their assets upon being sworn into office.
Despite being a moral obligation, declaration of assets is also a legal obligation.
As Patriots for Economic Progress we hereby give President Hakainde Hichilema a 14 day ultimatum for him to fulfill the constitutional requirement to declare his assets to the public. If upon expiration of 14 days the President continues to resist to declare his assets to the public, we will be left with no option but to approach the Constitutional Court and file a petition against his non-compliance with constitutional provisions. No one is above the law.
