The Malawian government has sent a preliminary report on the corruption investigations carried out by the British Forensic Auditors to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).National Audit Spokesperson Thomas Chafunya said Tuesday that the main issues in the report are the payment systems and loopholes it is riddled with among other flaws. "The report will soon be available to the public to deliberate locally and find solutions apart from those coming from the IMF," he said. He said the executive board of the IMF will meet to discuss different issues and the Malawi report will be tabled. A high profile team of independent auditors from Britain are conducting forensic auditing of misappropriation of public resources by civil servants where billions of kwachas were lost through corruption. Malawi has been under pressure by its traditional donors to rein in corruption, announcing late last year that they were withholding budgetary support to the country until something was done about the misappropriation of funds by senior government officials.
