  1. We hear of these findings every now and then. What action is taken to correct the mess and bring the culprits to book. Nothing. These reports just gather dust while colossal sums are spent from tax payer`s money on night allowances for auditors, travelling and other costs in addition to the money stolen and unearthed by audits. Govt works building massions in Chalala. The whole thing stinks to high heavens!!!!!

  3. Number five. Unretired imprest is money given to an employee say going on a tour to come and account for it when he comes back. There are two forms of imprest thus Accountable and Non accountable imprest. Non accountable imprest is say given as subsistance allowance which is the officers entitlemenr per day e.g 160,000.00 x 7 days = 1,120,000.00 and the accountable imprest just like the name is where you account how you spend. Say you are going to Livingstone you will put fuel in mazabuka, choma etc then when you come back you have to account how money was used. Any change if any is surrendered back to the cashier to bank. Now unretired means someone has failed to account for how the money was used and accounts will assume money not brought back.
