Malawi govt sends auditors to Nsanje over K91m missing council money

Government says it has sent another team of auditors to Nsanje district council to get to the bottom over K91 million missing council money believed to have been stolen and abused.

Muhlabase Mughogho: We want to ensure that  money is accounted for

Ministry of Local government and Rural Development spokesperson Mushabashe Mughogho said the initial team of auditors sent to the council discovered that money amounting to K91 million was not accounted for.

“Indeed the audit took place but it’s still work in progress,” she told Nyasa Times.

“The ministry is yet to send another audit team for a continuation of the audit,” added Mughogho.

“As a ministry we will wait for a final audit after all processes are done,” she said.

She said the government is aware that public money and resources continue to be stolen and abused in some councils affecting social services delivery.

She said the government would take stern action against all council officials found to be stealing and abusing council money.

The problem is that even government auditors are corrupt, they are given money not to give a true report. I know of auditors who were auditing police they were given money for sometime until the issue could no longer be suppressed. The true report came out. There is serious corruption in all government departments, in fact civil servants are more corrupt than politicians. That is why in 2019 they will not vote for anyone who has vowed to deal with corruption.

That I am afraid is what happens when the stealing starts at the top. You can’t stop people below you from stealing if you are actively involved in it. I am afraid it is the poor people who suffer. Hospitals, schools, agriculture all decimated. Poor harvests every year with no one actually getting a grip and putting a stop to all this. Every year we talk of maize distribution because this is how the elite steal money. Sometimes I wonder if our leaders do this on purpose so that they are seen as good by poor people when they distribute… Read more »

Which government auditors, its true there are well qualified auditors in government but are well demotivated, by politicians, this money was channeled through the big and executive politicians who are good at stealing so there is going to be no report no action just like 577 billion cash gate unless we change the captain and entire clue. This country is rotten, it stinks with corruption and stealing by the executive.

The fish rots from the head. According to ACB, the entire government is corrupt or rotten. There is no single department or ministry that is not rotten.
