The minister of local government Kondwani Nankhumwa one of the ministers named in the cashgate report has been found in another mini cashgate known as “Allowance gate” in Mzuzu during the recent visit of president Peter Mutharika. Report indicates that Nankhumwa drew double allowances during APM’s visit to the north.
He got allowances for fuel and accomodation from local government ministry and later forced Mzuzu city Assembly to pay him 1.5 million for the same. 390,000.00 was paid as rebursement for fuel while the rest was for accomodation and allowance the time APM was touring Mzuzu city roads.
This have left the already cash striped assembly failing to pay its December salaries to its employees, due to chronicle stealing behaviour of dpp ministers.
