According to the Accountant General, Kennedy Musonda four (4) out of the 63 ministers who illegally stayed in office following the dissolution of parliament in 2016 have failed to payback the salaries and allowances owed to the treasury.
Mr. Musonda, said the collective amount owed to the Treasury by the four individuals is K230, 064.36. He further added that the Patriotic Front submitted a schedule of persons who were covered under its bulk deposits made to the Treasury.
Mr. Musonda said the reconciliation process has revealed that some individuals who were paid for by the PF had also paid for themselves, resulting in double repayments saying all double repayments would be refunded in line with public finance regulations.
To ensure conclusive resolution of the matter, Mr. Musonda said the Ministry of Finance had written to the Attorney General requesting a report of repayments and outstanding amounts.
