The Cash-strapped Lilongwe City Council has bought a Toyota Prado TX from Toyota Malawi which has been registered LL 1 and Toyota Corolla which has been registered LL2 at K65,277,000 in total for official use.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
