A strong advice has gone out to Malawi government authorities to deploy more people to monitor the implementation of subsidy programme to curb corruption, favouritism and bias that have soiled the implementation of the programme since its inception.
Executive director of the local NGO, Future Planning for the Child, Douglas Ng’oma gave the advice during Kalondolondo meeting in Malawi’ northern district of Karonga, where he accused Ministry of Agriculture of failing its work in monitoring the programme.
The organisation states that its research findings show that 80 percent of people said agriculture extension workers in the communities and other responsible people are not doing their job of monitoring the programme properly. “…the program is marred by corruption in both selection of the beneficiaries because some names have been missing from the last list from ministry of agriculture,” explains Ng’oma.
