Malawi President Chakwera’s Tonse admin flashes out 950 ghost pensioners

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse administration has started draining the swamps that former governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) left that over 950 pensioners have been deleted from the list of government pensioners following the completion of a headcount exercise.

The Accountant General’s office conducted the exercise to ensure that the government is not wasting resources on ghost workers and false pension beneficiaries.

Earlier, the Treasury disclosed that billions of kwacha have over the years been lost to ghost workers and pensioners.

In a statement, Secretary to the Treasury Chauncy Simwaka has disclosed that they had 37, 984 pensioners on the government payroll out of which 37 027 were verified.

So far, names of 957 pensioners have been removed from the payroll and published as they failed to verify their information.

Simwaka has since disclosed that those whose names are appearing on the published list can still approach the authorities to be re-enlisted on the payroll.

This is a good development as taxpayers money have been saved from ghost pensioners.
