MASVINGO – Auditors from the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education have unearthed embezzlement of funds at two secondary schools, one in Chivi and another in Bikita.
Masvingo Provincial Education Director Zedius Chitiga confirmed the irregularities at Chongogwe Secondary School in Chivi and Manunure Satellite Secondary School in Bikita. He said they are not the only schools where fraud was unearthed. He also said all the perpetrators will be brought to book and every situation will be corrected according to the law.
"Audits were carried in various schools and the audits are intended to establish the existence of internal management systems as well as to find out if funds are used for intended purposes. All situations will be dealt with in line with the audit report. There is no irregularity unearthed which will not be dealt with. All perpetrators will be brought to book according to the regulations which governs us as the education sector" said Chitiga.
According to an audit report seen by The Mirror which covered the period 01 January 2015 to 05 December 2016 at Chongogwe a Deputy Headmaster Mr. Lot Zivurawa received fees on his Eco-cash account which he later converted into his own use and the school is renting computers for $2400 per term which translates to $7200 a year. The 5 year contract for the hiring of 60 computers from QRent is worth $36000. A receipt book was also missing from the school.
Manunure lost $1389 to a teacher in charge who failed to account for the money which he collected from pupils as levies. The same teacher in charge only identified as J Munovapeyi failed to fully acquit $3412 withdrawn from a school bank account. He also fraudulently substituted duplicate receipts in a used receipt book.
The auditors gave various recommendations including disciplinary action against Zivurawa and Munovapeyi.
