HRDC launches ‘pay back our money’ campaign,  demands Covid-19 money looting report

Rights activists are demanding that authorities immediately release a report on the alleged abuse of K6.2 billion Covid-19 money.

Luke Tembo:  Pay back our money

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) says delays in releasing the report is raising eyebrows.

At least a month has elapsed since revelations came out that funds amounting to K6.2 billion were mismanaged at the Department for Disaster Management Affairs (DODMA).

President Lazarus Chakwera had since ordered an audit on the same stressing that his taskforce on the pandemic should issue a detailed report that would help expose the looters.

The HRDC had since launched a “Pay Back Our Money” campaign to push for the arrest of all looters as well as the return of the plundered money.

HRDC National Coordinator Luke Tembo said the campaign is failing to tick because of lack of information stemming from delays to conclude and release the report.

Rights bodies should be insisting on proper budgets, “ring fencing” and acceptable formats and time tables for public funds. Not taking the necessary action at the beginning, lays the groundwork for all the wanton looting of public funds that we see in our country. Rights body leaders and their staff need to educate themselves on basic accounting, finance for non-finance managers and INTERNAL CONTROLS. These topics are… Read more »

Which money are you talking about? You need to have facts you guys. You cannot be telling people that all the Mk6.2b was stolen. This generalization shows that you don’t have details of the matter and the best you could do is to take your time and dig more. Issues of financial mismanagement are complex and cannot be dealt with within that short period. Your irritating demand now shows how desperate you are to prove you are still worth the salt. Government should not be pushed to arrest people because you hate them. In the end, it will be you… Read more »

Chakwera will not listen to your nosense. Covid money was supposed to be looted and this an arrangement that Chakwera made. He has created his criminal enterprise to steal from government and his first theft was the money meant for indepedence celebration then came the crossroad and now the covid.
