Then Sports minister Chishimba Kambwili disbursed the funds and mostly he was personally handing out the checks and spent over K3 million as administrative expenses. The revelation of K3,187,998 spent as administrative costs angered the Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC) members who sent her away and demanded that she reappears with satisfactory answers.

Musunga earlier told the committee that the money was owed by over 400 youth clubs across the country but information obtained by the Zambian Watchdog reveals that the money was mostly paid to PF youths in Copperbelt and Lusaka provinces while only K1,403,000 went as grants to institutions in eight provinces.
