We have won a landmark ruling on behalf of Hon. @Katazamhondoro & @wateralliancez in which govt has been ordered to publish terms & conditions of all loans & guarantees it concluded with or in favour of African Export-Import Bank or any other 3rd party financiers.
In his ruling, High Court Judge Justice Zhou said this should be published in an Extraordinary Govt Gazette by 30 January 2021 showing loans & guarantees borrowed or transacted between 2017 to Nov 2020.
Justice Zhou ruled that govt's failure to publish terms of loans&guarantees it concluded with Africa Export Import Bank or other financiers from 2017 to date within 60 days of their conclusion is a violation of Section 300(3) of Constitution&Section 18(2) of Public Debt Mgt Act
