Admarc board to meet over inquiry findings: Mulumbe to remain on forced leave

The board of State produce trader  Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) is set to meet to discuss and chart forward the way following a damning maize gate commission of inquiry report.

Masumbu:Board to meet as soon as possible

The report says Admarc did not follow procurement procedures of government and some officials bypassed the internal procurement procedures and procurement office.

Chairperson of the Admarc board James Masumbu said he would be calling for a board meeting to see how best to handle the report.

“This is an issue that cannot be handled by one person only, we will need a full board meeting to discuss this,” he said.

Admarc chief executive Foster Mulumbe has been named in the report as one of the people who grossly flouted procurement procedures.

He has denied any wrong doing.

Masumbu said the forced leave on Mulumbe has not yet been lifted.

“I have not seen the report yet. As board, we will act after we look at the inquiry report,” he said.

Masumbu and other Admarc officials recently travelled to the US to cancel maize deals after noticing some discrepancies in the procurement process.

Look guys.You have now confused our fundraising scheme for the 2019 elections. We almost had the MK9B in the bag. Chaponda is just a scapegoat. That’s why the big Kahuna cannot fire him.

No matter what happens there is no way Mulumbe should come back to Admarc. He will always deny any wrong ding, but only God knows what he did.. Mkulu wake waotcha office to destroy evidence when ACB was about to visit him to begin investigations. I would like to suspect that he has a sympathizer at ACB who must have warmed him of the coming of ACB. What goes around comes around. I will rule Gambia for a billion years.

Where on earth have seen a Board member being involved in the day to day running of an organisation? What was Masumbu doing in America? aMalawi tulo ndalama zokongola on your behalf anthu akungogawana in the name of allowances. Masumbu is Lawyer he knows that what did was wrong. Nanunso ma journalist takamufunsani kuti amakataniko.
