This comes after Nyasa Times in February revealed the council’s plans to buy brand new vehicles for the mayor and his deputy.

Inside sources say the council will have to cough K47, 638, 500.00 for the Toyota Prado and K17, 638,500 for the Toyota Corolla under arrangement with Leasing and Finance Bank.

“Toyota Malawi has given LCC 100, 000 Kilometers warranty and first 25,000 Kilometers free service up to one year,” said the sources.

Director of Finance Jeremiah Sibande has confirmed the developments saying the two officials “have long been using hired vehicles.”

“The arrangement will ease transport problem for the two officials,” said Sibande.

The problem is the government of Malawi. Remember they banned public institution from buying second hand vehicles. There is need for government to revisit its stand on this. I would like to agree with some commentators that it is possible to buy a brand new second hand vehicle which will work out the same like the most expensive vehicles on the market. I dont blame LCC for the purchase rather government

All this considering that the Lilongwe Mayor is a dunder head. BT Mayor also gets driven in a TX though.
