Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe: Donors coming back

Gondwe said the European Union has already committed US30 million for the budgetary support whilst the World Bank has committed US80 million for the budgetary support.

Economists say this will improve the ever dwindling economy of the country.

EU and World Bank officials were not available for comment but Malawi is on track with the IMF extended credit facility which has gave confidence to donors on how the government is using its finances.

Gondwe said this on Friday in Lilongwe when EU was signing a K40 billion agreement with the government on a justice project.

The project will see 100000 poor ordinary Malawians accessing lawyers to be paid for by the project, ordinary people not walking long distances to seek justice in courts of law and decongestion in prisons.

Courts, police, prisons and Malawi Human Rights Commission will directly benefit from the project.

At long last, this is good news. Access to legal redress is an indispensable component of a democratic system and rule of law. It it also encouraging that the financial performance benchmarks are on track to a point that some loans will begin to trickle into the Government coffers. However, there remain shocking and embarrassing instances of financial mismanagement some of which apparently, have called for refunds by the donors. The refunds will mean a drain of the meager resources from other essential allocations. It is hoped that the culprits will be dealt with the full force of the law.… Read more »

This is not a government to trust with donor money. Any donor giving money to Malawi govt is doing so at owners risk because the money will certainly be stolen by govt officials.
