Drivers at Plant and Vehicle Hire Organization (PVHO) are using government plants and vehicles for personal businesses, denying the organisation some much needed revenue, Malawi24 has learnt.
Yesterday, two drivers based at Mzuzu PVHO were seen offloading trailers for trucks labelled Tiyenkhu using a recovery vehicle owned by government.
However, a source who saw the drivers expressed doubt that the owner of the trailers had paid any money to government as fee for the hire of PVHO equipment.
According to our source, the PVHO drivers used a Boom truck registration number MG 859M and a Samarg recovery vehicle registration number MG 837P, both belonging to PVHO.
By the time our source took the pictures, the drivers had offloaded six trucks. The drivers have been identified as Foster Munthali and Howard Msiska.
The source said he is sure corruption was involved because the drivers were working on a weekend while it was also raining, which is unusual for workers at the organization.
