Background: On 6th March 2022, Chapter One Foundation released a press statement that stated that there was low compliance with the Parliamentary and Ministerial Code of Conduct Act among Cabinet Ministers. The statement showed that only a few ministers had filed their statutory declarations of assets, liabilities, interests, and income as required by law.
Later, on 9th March 2022, BBC Media Action through its Ishiwi initiative hosted an event dubbed ‘Voter’s Voice’ discussing the performance of the United Party for National Development (UPND) administration in various aspects of governance. The programme was broadcast on several radio stations across the country and on social media.
During the live broadcast, in response to a question posted on Facebook asking him to confirm the veracity of the statement by Chapter One Foundation, discussant, Director and Spokesperson in the Ministry of Information and Media Mr Thabo Kawana stated that ALL Cabinet Ministers had made their declarations in accordance with the law.
Claim being checked: “ALL Ministers have declared their assets in accordance with the law. Wherever the law suits (sic) them to go and file, they have filed.” – Thabo Kawana, Director and Spokesman, Ministry of Information and Media
