President Lungu suspends General Education PS Henry Tukombe

Henry Tukombe


President Lungu has suspended Ministry of General Education Permanent Secretary Henry Tukombe to pave way for investigations into the theft of millions of donor funds at the Ministry of Education.
State House Press Aid Amos Chanda revealed the development at a media briefing on Wednesday morning. Close to 80 other staff members at the General Education Ministry were suspended earlier in connection with the theft of donor funds.
And Chanda has said that government has repaid the 2.7 million pounds to the British government (Department for International Development, DFID). The money which was meant for vulnerable people under the Social Cash Transfer scheme under the Ministry of Community Development and disbursed through the Zambia Postal Services was stolen but after the donors withdrew aid and demanded to be refunded, the Zambian government claimed the money was never stolen but was intact in a Zanaco account.
Chanda said the money was paid back on Monday 1st October 2018 and claimed no government money was used to make the refund.
Emerine Kabanshi was recently fired from the post of Community Development Minister by President Lungu in connection with the plunder of the Social Cash Transfer funds while officials at the Zambia Postal Services were suspended in connection with the same plunder.
Recently Western diplomats had indicated that more donor money was stolen at the Ministry of Education than at the Ministry of Community Development.

    People of Zambia honestly if the money was in Zanaco account why did the donors claimed for the money if that time of auditing they where shown statements that tha money was in Zanaco.The problem is the State diffending wrong does e.g by using money for something else to refund stolen money, series states like Tanzania could have probed who are involved and reposes there properts to recover than digging a hole to burry another one.MY PRAYER IS LESA TWAFWENE FWEBANABENU TUPOKOLOLENIKO KUMINUE YA BA LUWANI TATUKWETE AMAKA YAKULWILAKO LEKENI CHIBEFYE NGEFYO CHALI KUBA NA BA ISALIA, MWELESA MWEBALIKO,MWEBALIKO,MWABAKAKO PANTU MULIBAMUYAYA. AMEN.

    This does not make any sense at all, if the money was not stolen why has this PF govt fired 80 staff for theft after the donors demanded their money back? And Chanda says that government has repaid the 2.7 million pounds to the British government, really, repaid or returned if it wasn’t stolen? The government claim that the money was never stolen rings hollow! Donor funds “te mwibala ya anyoko chikala!”

    Also visit Pemba District Council where CS is abusing the vehicles and money that she found left by her predecessor is sangwapo. She became excited when she found so much in the Council coffers after her transfer from Chipata. He drives herself spending most of the weekends in Lusaka. No wonder the Pemba council is not growing.
