The Jesuit Center for Theological Reflections (JCTR) has expressed worry over the increased mismanagement of public funds in Zambia as disclosed in the 2016 Auditor General’s Report released on 2nd November, 2017.

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.

Ms. Posiana says JCTR has since demanded the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to immediately institute investigations and prosecute all public servants involved in the abuses of taxpayers’ money.

“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” Posiana said
