Muhlabase Mughogho:Auditors will give us a clue

Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development spokesperson Muhlabase Mughogho said a team of auditors are being sent to the two councils whose results will determine the future of council officials who will be implicated.

“The audit report will give us a clue as to who was involved and a disciplinary action will be taken against them,” said Mughogho.

Malawi Economioc Justice Network executive director Dalitso Kubalasa thanked people of Karonga and Mchinji for staging a sit in and protests respectively, saying they have a right to demand transparency and accountability from office bearers.

Kubalasa however condemned the violence in Mchinji, saying such demands should be done peacefully.

The Mchinji district commissioner Chimwemwe Hara said no council official is involved in abuse of funds at the council and no money has been stolen as alleged by the protesters.

The protesters alleged K100 million, saying this is why the council has failed to construct a community centre ground and has failed to put up streets lights at the boma.

In Karonga, police have arrested seven council officials on allegation they abused K57 million meant for public works.

    Why do we always rush for action when something happens? It could have been a routine check than responding to a crisis zinthu zitasokonekera

    Yes, you are telling us you would do a COMPREHENSIVE audit,
    . . . but do you think its hard to know/see that not even a simple audit has/had been done in the past?
    Who doesnt know that to prevent something bad is far better than to cure it?. Nanga . . .
    . . . if the so called comprehensive audit is done and abuse of funds confirmed, do you think you shall recover the money?
    . . . Yes, we may find comfort in sending these foolish fools to jail for 10 or 20 or 30 years or whatever, but what good will this do us, vis-a’-vis, recovery of the money?

    The govt may wish to wise up. Thus, must act instead of always reacting. You see . . .
    . . . This revelation of abuse of funds at these two Councils may just be a tip of an iceberg but the mother iceberg is almost everywhere.
    . . . Any sensible local govt would therefore be active, in auditing its councils so as to prevent abuse or detect it at the earliest opportune time possible.
