“Knowledge isn’t power until it is applied.”

– Dale Carnegie


This week, we #AskQuestions! Read on.


The National Assembly wants to provide legislative oversight over the executive but refuses to be transparent.

As we have asked for the past 3 years, how does the National Assembly spend its yearly allocation?

They claim it’s not on salaries, so what do they spend it on?

Why is it so difficult to make this public?

We will continue to #AskQuestions!
