Petauke district PF secretary Mabvuto Banda has allegedly swindled Tiyavyane Women Club of Chilima Nyama Ward in Chief Kalindawalo’s area, about 14 thousand Kwacha rebased.
Members of the club have disclosed that late year, Mr. Banda went to meet members of the club with his friend who pretended to be a supplier of goods to women clubs.
The women explained that the man only named as Chilupula, was introduced to the women group by the PF district secretary who convinced them to agree to pay for a grinding meal at 10 thousand kwacha rebased.
After paying part of the money, Mr. Chilupula a dealer, went back to the women club and explained that the grinding meal had reached Mwami Border and needed about 4 thousand kwacha rebased, money which was given to him.
Breeze FM Correspondent, Mercy Maseko reports that members of the club say that after receiving this money Mr. Chilipula disappeared without delivering the grinding meal.
The Tiyavyane women club explains that they have reported the matter to police.
But Mr. Banda has denied the allegations stating that there are no documents proving claims by Tiyavyane Women Club that he had swindled them.
And PF acting provincial chairman Mike Tembo has acknowledged receiving a report on the matter and that it will be investigated and appropriate action taken.
