Nyimba district council denies misappropriating seven hundred thousand Kwacha.

Nyimba District Council has dispelled rumors that the seven hundred thousand Kwacha meant for construction of bridges in the district has been misappropriated.
Nyimba District Council Chairperson, Max Kapanta, says that contrary to the reports, the council has done a very good job and that Kasavu, which is one of the bridges under construction, has already been completed.
Mr. Kapanta says that the council employed highly qualified people to carry out the works and that they have been done under close supervision.
He explained that people in Hofmeyer area and Chibeza Ward, where Mfunguzi Bridge is still being constructed should not be misled, as the works are expected to be completed soon.
Mr. Kapanta says the progress on the bridge was even reported during a full council meeting that took place on Monday.
Some people in the district raised queries on why Mfunguzi Bridge is still under construction, when Kasavu Bridge was completed about two weeks ago, suggesting that the council may have spent part of the money on other projects.
