ATI Bill proves we have nothing to hide-Kawana


Brian Mwale


Government says it took the Access to Information -ATI- Bill to Parliament because it has nothing to hide unlike the previous administrations.

Ministry of Information and Media Permanent Secretary THABO KAWANA says the UPND introduced the bill to Parliament in 2002 while in opposition.

Mr. KAWANA says the previous administrations also feared that the Access to Information law would endanger national security.

He adds that the ATI Bill presented to Parliament has provided for exemptions of information that border on national security.

Mr. KAWANA said this when he appeared before the Parliamentary Committee on Media, Information and Communication Technologies.
