LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Minister of Unity Timothy Mtambo has demanded for Human Resource (HR) audit countrywide following the list of 17 ghost workers from Chitipa district.

Mtambo made the demand following a list of ghost workers allegedly coming from Chitipa district Hospital office that is circulating on social media.

In an interview with Maravi Post on Saturday, Mtambo disclosed that if Chitipa has 17 ghost workers, there’s a possibility of many more other ghost workers in all the other districts across the country.

Mtambo said gone are days when people were being shielded and paid just by painting themselves in party colors.

He added that Tonse-led administration is professional and it abides by the rule of law.

“The said Chitipa list did not indicate the ministry in which the accused ghost workers are working with. This is a clear sign of the loopholes in our system and how rotten the system is.

“It is unethical and unpatriotic.We will bring those behind the malpractice to book so they can be dealt with appropriately in accordance with the law. We want others to learn a lesson once we’ve dealt with the ones who’ll be exposed,” said Mtambo.

In previous years, audit report undertaken by the National Audit Office (NAO) revealed that there’s a continued existence of ghost workers, civil servants taking home double salaries and abuse of payments through allowances, dubious fuel allocations and other expenses.

The country has continued to lose millions of donor and taxpayer money through the malpractice over the years perpetrated by civil servants in various government ministries.
