The National Audit Office reveals it has concluded an audit of all of Malawi’s foreign Missions.

President Peter Mutharika ordered the audit following the abuse of over MK300 million at the Malawi Mission in Ethiopia.

This saw Malawi’s Former Deputy Ambassador to Ethiopia, Doreen Kapanga, and Fletcher Chowe, who was first secretary for administration and finance, being suspended and recalled from the mission.

Both are currently on bail after being arrested in connection to the abuse of funds.

The theft was detected when Chowe allegedly wrote a cheque of $30,000 in his name which was signed by Kapanga.

Commenting on the issue, Public Relations Officer for the National Audit Office Radson Kagwamminga says the report has been submitted to the Foreign Affairs Ministry for action.

The ten embassies in the report include London, Brussels, Berlin, Tokyo, New Delhi, Beijing, Dubai, Cairo, Johannesburg and Dodoma.

According to a preliminary audit report which was released early last year, MK184 million is said to have been diverted into personal accounts at Malawi’s embassy in Ethiopia in a period of 12 months.

Grand theft by civil servants has been blamed for loss of not less than 30 percent of government revenue prompting the country’s donors to withhold budgetary support.
