Constituency Fund abusers named

A ZANU PF legislator has been arrested on charges of abusing funds meant for development projects in his district, state media said on Tuesday.

Franco Ndambakuwa, MP for Magunje, was arrested Monday after failing to account for almost $40 000 of the $50 000 in constituency development funds allocated to him.

He is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.

Ndambakuwa is the second legislator to be nabbed in an audit of the eight-million-dollar grassroots development programme, after the MDC-T’s Marvelous Khumalo who represents St Marys.

Eric Matinenga, minister for constitutional and parliamentary affairs, said in a statement the audit has looked at the programme in 65 of the country's 210 constituencies and failed to get satisfactory responses from four of them.

Meanwhile Virginia Mabhiza, the acting secretary for the ministry told a parliamentary committee that the ministry would also audit constitutional reform committee, Copac for money provided by the State.

She was responding to allegations that Copac had become a cash cow for some MPs in its Select Committee.

The allegation was however denied by Copac national co-ordinator Gift Marunda who said the Select Committee was not deliberately delaying the Constitutional reform process.

Marunda said the process was politically driven, making disagreements and delays inevitable.
