The Zambian Government is in the course of action of developing 1 regulator for the country’s gaming and lotteries field, with North-Western Province Lasting Secretary Willies Mangimela expressing his worry at the latest “fragmented” legislation.
Speaking at the official opening of a public consultative conference in Solwezi, Mangimela introduced that an inter-ministerial technical committee had been established in a bid to harmonise the present polices, and to create 1 regulator.
The committee has previously drafted the plan and implementation framework, with the new regulation established to regulate equally actual physical and on line gaming and lotteries in the place. The latest framework is reportedly rapidly-expanding, but is also getting abused.
Stakeholders such as Council of Elders provincial secretary Kenneth Kapata, and Zambia Police Service Divisional Legal Officer Allan Mbahwe, have asked for to see the information of the existing legislation in buy for them to submit beneficial written content.
“As you may possibly be knowledgeable the govt has noted with problem that the latest legislations for the gaming and lotteries sector in the country are fragmented, resulting in loss of earnings to the government,” claimed Mangimela.
“It is my hope that this system will culminate into responsive laws that will allow the Ministry of Finance to harmonize and build a regulator of gaming and lotteries in Zambia.”
