Speaker Laments Lack of Seriousness by Legislators

Speaker of parliament Jacob Mudenda has lamented the lack of seriousness by legislators to debate motions in the august house despite that the First session of the 9th parliament was about to come to an end.
He said:
“There are about 35 Motions that have not been debated and we are coming towards the end of the First Session of the Ninth Parliament.  
Now, this lack of debate on your motions can either mean that we have not created time for them to be debated or we were not serious when we tabled those motions.  
In terms of the Standing Orders, these motions may lapse and we may start to reintroduce them again.  May I encourage Hon. Members especially the movers of motions to ensure that their motions are debated accordingly because they speak to very important national policies.”
