Teveta bosses under probe

0

Three directors at the Technical Entrepreneurial Vocational and Education Training Authority (Teveta) have been sent on leave for 30 days over allegations that they misappropriated K2.4 billion.

The three who have been sent on leave from January 24 to February 23 are the authority’s Executive Director, Ndione Chauluka, Director of Finance, Elwin Sichiola and Director of Training, Modesto Gomani.

The three have been sent on forced leave pending investigations as they were allegedly funding a project called Tsogolo Langa without the knowledge and approval of the board to the tune of K2.4 billion.

Teveta’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Lewis Msasa, confirmed that a 30-day leave has been given to the three directors.

“I can confirm that the three have been sent on leave for 30 days to allow for investigations by the National Audit Office into the allegations. They will continue getting their dues. It’s not suspension but leave,” Msasa said.

He said the audit has been instituted by Teveta’s Board in fulfillment of its oversight role Msasa said the audit has come following allegations from the public concerning the matter.

In August last year, the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) sent on leave its Chief Executive Officer, Raphael Kamoto, and Director of Finance, Elias Hausi, to pave the way for investigations into the alleged diversion of K3 billion from the Price Stabilisation Fund (PSF), while the Roads Authority (RA) Board suspended its Chief Executive Officer, Trevor Hiwa, following a misprocurement issue in which he awarded a K217 million World Bank project to his own firm called Infrastructure Consultants (Infracon).
