DC forces chiefs to open bank accounts to receive their honoraria

Mulanje district commissioner Charles Makanga has forced all traditional leaders in the district to open bank accounts where their honoraria  is deposited.

Makanga: Chiefs to be paid through bank account

Makanga said this was necessary having noted that some accounts clerk who pay the traditional leaders the money were abusing and stealing the money.

“This was necessary because some of our officers were abusing the money, so the new system ensures that no one gets the money except for the traditional leaders themselves,” he said.

Makanga was commenting after resistance of the new pay point system by some traditional leaders who complain of spending money to get their honorarium.

They said the old system of accounts paying officers parading them for the pay was convenient as they did not have to walk long distances to get their money.

Bravo Mr DC for grabing the bull by the horns.

Sitingatukuke ndi zomapanga spend a lot for Clerks to travel to give cash to mafumu. The cost and risk are avoidable as you have seen.

This is a good development but very soon it will bite back. The chiefs will suffer most . They will end up having their honoraria spent on transport alone . The lowest a chief gets is 5000 for VH and this amount is transport alone in some areas. Also some chiefs are very very old and frail. Imagine muja anthu timayimira pa line Ku bank nde chief akakhale pa line ma hours just to get 5000. Late Bingu abolished this when he was in power after chiefs complained. System iyi ndiyokomera mafumu amene ali close to banks

I totally agree. Have always admired Mr. Makanga. He is never shy of making very important decisions. Bravo bwana Makanga. Way to go, better things are often resisted at first…
