Parliamentary committee tells National Audit Office to probe K6Bn Covid funds at Dodma

A powerful parliamentary committee has told the office of the Auditor General to institute an audit into the K6 billion covid-19 money which the Department of Disaster Management (Dodma) received from government.

Namalomba: Audit Dodma 

This follows widespread reports that the money might have been abused.

The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament has since written the office of the Auditor General to institute an audit of the K6.2 billion that was allocated to various Covid19 cluster committees.

The move follows inquiries by some quarters of society  who are expressing dissatisfaction with the expenditure reports.

Chairperson of the committee, Shadreck Namalomba highlights the outcome of the Auditor General’s reports will allow the committee to hold a public enquiry afterwards.

Meanwhile, the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has since issued a statement demanding an immediate audit on how the money was used by the DODMA.

And in his view, Executive Director of the Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) Sylvester Namiwa has described the development as pathetic considering that Malawians are now trusting average citizens with Covid 19 funds.

I dont know why up to now we wait for people to steal and do fire fighting when people steal public funds. Why dont we have functional process controls that CHECK all activities and decisions being undertaken. Everyone must abide to public procurement protocols than anthu ndalama adya kale mkumati tione report???

The same Cadets used to siphon money when DPP was in power u keep them in their positions so what do u expect? Open your eyes and fire them for once , be like Bingu a decisive leader, let the government compensate the right ones and be done with all the spoilers. Let people blame u for short period of time for taking a decisive direction then enjoy the fruits later . Otherwise the Cadets being the system they are all over the wall to destroy your reputation as they did With Joyce Banda. Don’t give them a chance just… Read more »

The cadets ur referring ndi ati??? Dpp,mcp or utm??? Because I know civil servants are not part of this as they serve the government of the day. So if its tonse alliance it means fire the tonse cadets. That’s my reasoning

Speed is of the essence here. We want heads to roll fast. Kuba kwatopetsa and Malawians have begun wondering whether there is a difference between then and now.

Abale to say the truth iyi ndiye nyansi. Better Egypt than Canan. You have already started stealing milk and honey in Canan. Malawi will never develop. I think we should ask Donald Trump from USA to lead us. No Malawian will ever lead us well.Chakwera with all those promises,your own boys have already started stealing just before a year in Government. Shame on you after making those empty promises. Where is Arafat Chilima after making all that noisee to drain the swamp????????. Better to live in the desert than in wroten. Malawi. Mbava mbuzi inu

Hate it or take it but it's a fact

Malawians I don’t understand that what kind of people we are. In everything all that comes first in our mind is to steal without even having second thought. Our beloved President as well is to blame cos people have lost hope in his administration now. He promised us that the Swamp will be drained as soon as they step into power or in his famous removal of rubble because all this is the result of keeping the rubble. Dr Chakwera instead of starting on a clean slate with his administration he decided to have those pretending that they have repented.… Read more »
