Misapplication of public funds is embarrassing, MMD

General News Misapplication of public funds is embarrassing, MMD

The MMD in Kitwe has described the misapplication of public funds by some government ministries as an embarrrassment and should not be allowed to continue.

District Secretary George Lungu said revelations in the Auditor General’s report indicate that government was losing billions of kwacha through misapproriation of public resouces.

He said that bold steps should be taken seriously by the controlling officers if the Millennium Development Goals are to be achieved.

Mr Lungu said it was now time that controlling officers were made accountable to the people in the way government money was being misused.

The MMD official urged all zambians to demand accountability and transparency in developmental projects and programmes.

He also called on the member of public to support calls by the Inspector General of Police Ephram Mateyo over the fight against corruption in the police service.

He said the law should be stiffened against motorists who were in the habit of bribing traffic officers.

  1. It is embarrrassing indeed and the most painful thing is chuchu’s govt is doing nothing about this misapplication of public funds apart from taking part in misapplicating more funds by touring London hospitals for ILENDA only.

    “law should be stiffened against motorists who were in the habit of bribing traffic officers”, its a familiar
    phase, we have heard it so many times, but nothing seems to come of this mere pronunciations.
