Executive Director for technical Entrepreneural and Vocational and Education Training Authority (Teveta), Ndione Chauluka has been sent on forced leave pending investigations for abuse of about K2.4 billion, Nyasa Times understands.
Chauluka has been sent on leave together with Director of Training Programs Modesto Gomani and Director of Finance Elwin Sichiola.
They are suspected to have funded a project called ‘Tsogola Langa’ without the knowledge and approval of TEVETA board.
When contacted for comment, Chauluka told Nyasa Times briefly confirmed that he is on “leave.”
But Teveta’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Lewis Msasa confirmed the three were on “ 30-day forced leave.”
He said: “They have been sent on 30-day leave to allow for investigations into the allegations.”
According to Msasa, the three will continue getting pay during their leave.
Sources say, Teveta is being abused by some people like Malawi Communications and Regulatory Authority (MACRA) to be a cash-cow for political activites.
