“This concerns us the People’s Alliance Party because in our current meetings in preparations towards the 2014 general elections, we have a lot of concern about the behaviour of Members of Parliament on the floor of parliament and even outside of parliament and that is with regards to a lot of their time have been spent on worrying about RCDF. They are not Accounts Clerks and that is our point.”
