Indications are emerging of diversion of money allocated to the payment of training allowances of census takers and controllers in the Namarroi district of Zambézia. Suspicions surfaced at local level and were communicated to the provincial Census Bureau and the governor, reports O País.
The case was raised by an employee of the district census bureau who was part of the value distribution team for controller and census taker candidates. Anonymous sources cited by o País would have indicated thatthe administrative and locality heads are still under investigation in connection with the case.
Armando Terenha, director of the provincial Census Bureau in Zambézia, says he trusts the organs of justice to investigate and punish those involved as tarnishing the good name of the institution among Census takers and controllers.
