Pohamba praises Public Accounts Committee

President Hifikepunye Pohamba this week singled out the Public Accounts Commmitte for praise when he officially opened the seventh session of the fifth Parliament.
Pohamba praised the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for reinforcing accountability on accounting officers in the execution of their responsibilities. The president said other Parliamentary standing committees, especially those with the responsibilities of addressing the pressing needs of poverty alleviation, promotion of economic development and stimulation of job creation, must also work hard to find effective solutions to these problems.
Member of the National Assembly and Chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee, Usutuaije Maamberua thanked the president for recognising the work of the committee.
He said: “I would want to thank the president for that recognition and I hope that will also mean that the Public Accounts Committee will be allocated more resources so that we can do our job with the necessary capacity so that we can live up to the task that is given to us.”
