Government says an investigation report on the controversial K22.6 billion kwacha COVID-19 funds will be out this month-end.
Acting National Audit Office Director Thomas Makiwa attributed the prolonged delays to the pandemic hiccups.
The report missed the November, December and January 2021 deadlines with authorities blaming COVID-19 interruptions.
Makiwa said auditors they are now in the final stages of compiling the report.
A previous Ombudsman’s investigation report titled, misplaced priorities, exposed massive abuse of the initial K6.2 billion COVID-19 funds but with little progress made this far to punish those behind such careless plunder.
