Tourism and Arts Minister Ronald Chitotela says he has no choice but to change the staff at Munda Wanga if things do not improve in the third quarter of 2019.
Mr. Chitotela said management at the park should not be tying development money as he believes many organisations have developed even with limited resources.
The minister stated that there has been no improvement despite the concerns expressed by President Lungu when he visited the facility earlier this year.
This is contained in a statement made available to Lusaka Star by Ministry of Tourism and Arts Public Relations Officer Sakabilo Kalembwe.
“I want to see transformation at Munda Wanga so that it generates substantial amounts of income for the treasury. What needs to be done to improve the state of affairs at Munda Wanga is to have a mindset for development,” the Minister said.
He further said that if the facility starts to generate enough incomes there would be justification to ask for more funding for further development of the area.
Meanwhile, Munda Wanga Sanctuary and Botanic Gardens has been well known as home for ambassador wildlife species and rehabilitation centre for injured animals or those recovered from pet traders.
Additionally, the greenery of the Botanic gardens is known for retreats for people wanting secluded environment, especially during leisure time such as weekends and holidays.
