PAC quizzes police over M47 million

PAC quizzes police over M47 million

MASERU – THE Public Accounts Committee (PAC) quizzed the Ministry of Police on how it used the M47 million received from the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in 2011 and 2014.
The money was allocated to the police to help in the running of elections but the PAC found that there were no clear records on how it was used.
The PAC demanded documents showing how the money was used, insisting that the police should account for every cent.

A police accountant who identified herself only as Ramarikhoana said documents for the 2011 to 2014 financial years were not readily available but they would be collected and filed.
Ramarikhoana said they only have documents for 2015.

PAC said they want the police to tell the committee how they used the money and provide supporting documents.
Ramarikhoana said they had some documents for 2011 and 2012. She promised the committee that they would make all the supporting documents available.

PAC chairperson Selibe Mochoboroane said they will not allow the police to claim that there was no report on how the funds were used.
“So we want to know how you have used the money,” Mochoboroane said.
