Teveta board has cleared its director of Finance Elwin Sichiola of any wrong doing following his suspension along with two other senior officials in a K2.4 billion scam.

Chauluka: Forced leave extended

The chairperson of Teveta board r Gilbert Chilinde confirmed Sichiola has been recalled from his forced leave and is back in office.

However, Chilinde said the executive director Ndione Chauluka and director of training Modesto Gomani had their forced leave extended.

The three were accused of opening a bogus Ndisogolo Langa project in Neno which was used as a vehicle to divert money from Teveta. Up to a staggering K2.4 billion has so far been abused.

The money came from a levy companies pay to Teveta for skills.

Chilinde could not say when the case of Chauluka and Gomani would be concluded.

This issue hit headlines as it added to a number of theft of public money infamously known as gates.
