Meanwhile, an international movement has launched a Follow Your Money initiative to track expenditure of Covid 19 funds across the globe including Malawi.
The initiative started in Nigeria years ago and is now implementing a Covid 19 Transparency and Accountability Project-CTAP.
Through the project, the movement demands accountability within governments on the utilisation of Covid 19 funds to ensure effective use.

Founder of Follow Your Money Movement Hamat Lawal said the movement will work closely with local rights groups to stop the plunder of public funds.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
