Katete District Council denies misapplying Constituency Development Fund used to build a bus station.

Katete District Council has denied misapplying part of the 2014 CDF, Constituency Development Fund contributed by Milanzi and Mkaika constituencies for a bus station project.
Council Chairperson, Abraham Zulu says that it is not true that the local authority used the money for a ground breaking ceremony of the Bus Station and Commissioning of the two markets without approval.
In a statement availed to Breeze News last evening, Mr. Zulu says that the council used the money as approved for in the 2015 budget.
He says that the council has evidence available for anyone who would wish to confirm the local authority’s position on the matter.
On Monday, Milanzi Constituency Member of Parliament White Banda alleged that some individuals at Katete council were in the habit of reckless spending and breaking procedures on government funds.
He said he had information on how the council had misapplied funds on the 19th of June 2015 when it hosted the ground breaking ceremony of a bus station construction project.
Mr. Banda claimed that Mkaika and Milanzi Constituencies had contributed about 650 thousand Kwacha for the construction of the bus station from their CDF, but to their surprise the council is alleged to have gotten part of that money to host the ground breaking ceremony.
