Government says the forensic and administrative audit into alleged abuse of Social Cash Transfer funds has been finalized and submitted to Cabinet Office.

Deputy Secretary to Cabinet in Charge of Finance and Economic Affairs Christopher Mvunga told journalists at State House today that the forensic audit was submitted to Cabinet Office and Secretary to the Treasury on January 29, 2019.

Mr Mvunga said Cabinet office is now studying the report to understand the implications of the forensic audit on the ministry of Community Development and Zampost.

The Deputy Secretary to Cabinet said government will arrange for a meeting in Mid-February this year and present the forensic report to the cooperating partners who are key stakeholders in the implementation of Zambia’s Social Cash Transfer Scheme.

Mr Mvunga said government will discuss the report with the donors and also engage the cooperating partners to explore ways of continuing financing of the Social Cash Transfer scheme.

He said the general public will be informed of recommendations and actions that will be taken regarding the administrative and forensic audits of the alleged abuse of Social Cash Transfer funds.

Last year President Lungu directed forensic and administrative inquiries when reports surfaced of alleged corruption, abuse and maladministration of social cash transfer funds at the ministry of Community Development and Social Services and the government appointed agent Zampost.

      The ways of PF are quite unorthodox.They will be meeting the donors within 2 weeks,meanwhile no action has been taken against the culprits and in typical PF fashion they may decide to sort out the issue by asking the wrongdoers to pay back from their benefits.Leadership demands that the law takes it’s course and precedent is set and this can only be by prosecution of the culprits.But with PF they are scared of setting precedents that may visit them as well,what a government….

    • Thieves investigating themselves if the report has been received why not release it to the public ….busy editing till no wrongdoing is found and no one arrested

  1. What a Joke!! The PF used Sunday Chanda to siphon funds from the Cash Transfer, hence the reason are they are manipulating report instead of publishing it. Most senior members of PF are involved in this!!

  3. I would rather you refer to it as a forensic edit, since all you did was to make sure that, you got rid of all the incriminating details, before reporting the findings.

  4. When donors threaten to withold donations this administration will do what they are supposed to do in terms of auditing and finding out misuse and theft of funds. When the zambian citizens demand accountability, the administration does not care. Who really are they working for
