THE Auditor General’s report for the financial year ended December 31, 2021 has revealed that over K3 million was misappropriated by a cashier at Immigration Headquarters.
The syndicate is suspected to have theft between January 1 to June 11, 2021.
According to records, a total of US$19,780 and K1,693,476 were collected from Visa fees, border passes, and permits at Nchelenge Border Post and that although the amounts collected were purported to have been banked, they did not reflect on the bank statements for the revenue transit account.
Further inquiries revealed that the responsible officer had forged the bank date stamp which he was using to generate fake deposit slips.
