Economy JCTR expresses over mismanagement of Public Funds

In a statement to LusakaTimes , JCTR Media and Information Officer Tendai Poisiana says the irregularities highlighted in the Auditor’s General Report on the Accounts of the Republic for the Financial Year ending 31st December 2016 have continued worsening with impunity amid high levels of poverty and unemployment in the country.
