Only in Zimbabwe- 16 auditors share five chairs and three desks


Sixteen new auditors with the Ministry of Home Affairs are sharing five chairs and three desks because the ministry has not bought any furniture for a long time, Parliament was told during the debate on the ministry’s budget for 2015.

The chairman of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Defence, Home Affairs and Security Services, Clifford Sibanda said $80 000 was allocated for the purchase of furniture this year but it was never released.

The budget for 2015 has been reduced to $30 000.

The ministry had the second highest allocation at $410.4 million but 91.6 percent of the budget is going into employment costs leaving an operations budget of only $34.3 million.

The ideal operations budget is $194.1 million.

The ministry also has outstanding debts of $89.4 million almost three times its operations budget.
