Ministry of Education officials have come under blisteting attack for pocketing three day allowances from government for a meeting that lasted for two hours only.

HRDC’s Luke Tembo : We  will submit the information to National Audit Office

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has since blown the whistle on the matter.

HRDC says it has received information alleging that officials from the ministry pocketed allowances amounting to K90,000 each meant for a three day training, for an activity that only lasted for two hours.

The development comes as government is investigating the alleged abuse of 6.2 Billion Kwacha Covid-19 funds.

Tembo said HRDC will submit the information to National Audit Office and other prosecuting agencies who are investigating the  alleged mismanagement of K6.2 billion Kwacha.

What happens when the govt lacks integrity. Mindset change alone won’t help. How about strengthening internal controls such as awarding whistleblowers when credible evidence is provided, strengthening the punishment(in this case fire all those responsible for the mismanagement), and I don’t know what else……… I just wish if there was a way to make this country a warm heart truly and be run by people who really embrace that notion. I get sick of the way gvt and civil servants rob the country and the poor Malawian without shame. I mean if I had super powers would definitely take then… Read more »

Thieves in suits with empty heads. Chancellor College has bred a lot of thieves and you will see that most of the people running government are from Chancellor College. The Chikanda syndrome. How can one pocket allowances for a meeting which part of his job. What are allowances for? You mean you cannot meet without money. It is no wonder to see civil servants living luxurious lives from a salary of less that K1 million a month. This madness must stop. Everyone including babies pay tax. The clothes and foods you buy for babies include VAT. A poor villager pays… Read more »

Stealing is evil… whether done for some reasons or not it still remains evil in the eyes of your Creator. Nothing changes with God. Kubera private sector kaya public sector no difference, you still are under God’s judgment and you deserve it. Mukalemera ndi ndalama zakubazo mukafa ndikukapita ku Gehena muyaya yense mukaiwala zimene mukunena apazi. My message is one and simple REPENT!!!
