Some public officers and civil servants are yet to apologise to Malawians for buying 277 government tractors at very cheap price and questionable purchasing deal.
The ombudsman Martha Mwangonde ruled on Friday that those who bought the tractors, including Foreign Affairs Francis Kasaila and Speaker for National Assembly Richard Msowoya should apologise to all Malawians for conniving to buy the tractors at give away prices.
Dedza east MP Juliana Lunguzi complained to the ombudsman after the government abused the tractors which were bought in India and whose loan the government is paying.
The tractors were supposed to benefit subsistence farmers in a bid to graduate them from using a hoe to tractors to improve agriculture in the country.
Others who benefitted from the tractors are a dozen principal secretaries and senior government officials and State House chief of staff Peter Mukhito.
Lunguzi said an apology was not enough.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
