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.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
