ACB arrests former teacher for getting salary after leaving work

Graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has arrested a former government primary school teacher for getting salary for six years after leaving her job.

Ndala: Misanjo charged with one count of theft 

ACB spokesperson Egritta Ndala says the bureau received a complaint on July 24, 2017 alleging that Grace Misanjo was still receiving salary as a primary school teacher when she had left the profession in 2013 to further her studies and continued to do so after securing another job within the government.

Ndala says an investigation by the ACB showed that Misanjo pocketed K6.3 million of public money for a job she did not do.

“On 21st November, 2019, the Anti-Corruption Bureau arrested Grace Misanjo. Misanjo was taken to the Blantyre magistrates’ court where she was charged with one count of theft by servant…,” says Ndala.

Misanjo, Ndala says, was granted bail after producing to the court K100, 000 cash as bond, produced two sureties bonded at K50, 000 cash each and ordered to report to ACB offices once every fornight.

This is funny. The problem is not the ex-teacher receiving a salary but rather the lack of controls where salaries are approved. She needs a good lawyer and she will probably be paying back MK100 every month. The question is who was authorising these payments and how many more are receiving salaries without working?

ACB is a very useless office which victimise the poor. What is the salary for a teacher for six month probabaly 80000 *6 =MK 420,000.00. You are failing to arrest Muluzi for billions, failing to arrest 7 cabinet ministers for 250 billion, falling to arrest Batawalala for bilions and busy saying you are arresting for corruption with thousands.
