Police arrest 2  Lilongwe District Council officials over missing K132m

Malawi Police have arrested two officials from Lilongwe district council on suspicion they embezzled K132 million meant for deceased estates and Other Recurrent Transactions (ORT).

Muhlabase Mughogho:  The two are suspected  swindling the council of K113 million for deceased estates and K19 million for the ORT

Ministry of Local government and Rural Development spokesperson Muhlabase Mughogho said Martin Msiska and Charles Chapalapata have been arrested for allegedly swindling the council of K113 million for deceased estates and K19 million for the ORT.

The police say the two are expected to appear in court once all the investigations are through.

This comes barely days after K400 million vanished in thin air at Dowa district council.

Council chairperson Martin Luka Phiri said he was very disturbed with reports of abuse of funds at the council.

Ombudsman Martha Chizuma says her office will soon be investigating allegations of abuse of funds in councils across the country.
