By Emmanuel Onyango

ACT Wazalendo Party leader and a Member of Parliament for Kigoma urban constituency Zitto Kabwe said the government lost Sh1.5trillion in 2016/17 financial year.

Zitto told the press had gone through the Controller and Audit General (CAG) report which revealed the misappropriation of funds.

According to the MP, the CAG Professor Mussa Assad said they were no receipt showing the expenditure of the funds.

Kabwe hailed the decision by President John Magufuli to suspend the District Executive Directors (DEDs) of the two councils (Ujiji-Kigoma and Pangani) mentioned in the CAG report for poor records.

However, he said his party urges the president to take similar action against some ministers implicated with the loss of funds.

He mentioned the Minister for Lands, Housing, and Human Settlements William Lukuvi, the Minister of State in President’s Office responsible for local government and regional administration Selemani Jafo whom he said have been concealing evidence.
