Msowoya: Government has committed to honouring the repayments

The Global Fund used its independent auditors to reveal the unplanned expenditures by the Malawi government through its National Aids Commission (NAC) which included buying unbudgeted vehicles.

The documents from the Auditors show that government has already started repaying some of the funds amounting to MK1.5billion (US$3.3 million) and is yet to repay an amount of MK1.4 billion (US$3.1 million).

Ministry of Finance Spokesperson, Nations Msowoya confirmed the development to the local press on Monday that government is indeed repaying the funds from the Treasury to Global Fund.

“Government has committed to honouring the repayments to the Global Fund and soon or later the balance will be finalized,” he said.

Malawi is repaying the funds from its annual budget.

Government used the money to buy vehicles it donated to Central Medical Stores Trust and other public institutions involved in health service delivery, he said.

If I was the advisor to treasury, the global fund must be refunded its money and never again to give it to Malawi, I think the money was free gift to the poor nation, other issues need to be attended now – cars are for logistics therefore buying them is part of the programme – now if that has been translated as a cash-gate then, we don’t want their help in future.
