Councillors protest against misuse of funds
Councilors in Mangochi are demonstrating against the suspected misuse of 200 million kwacha by the council secretariat.
The secretariat and Councillors blame each other for the abuse of Constituency and Local development funds.
“councilors are disappointed that the district will not receive funds for MASAF project because of financial mismanagement,” said chairperson of Mangochi district council Omar Magombo.
During their meeting yesterday the councilors agreed to close the council’s offices on Tuesday morning.
However, they are meeting police officers on the same.
