State tackles bursaries graft allegations

GOVERNMENT says there is need to clean up the Bursaries Committee to rid it of corruption allegations.
Minister of Education, Science and Vocational Training John Phiri says that he has received complaints that some undeserving students have been awarded bursaries at the expense of genuinely needy scholars.
“We have given the bursaries committee guidelines, I have asked them to give me a report on the allocation of the bursaries,’’ he said.
Dr Phiri said the findings of the report from the Bursaries Committee will be made public and Government will only take the next step once the report is out.
