Umodzi Park has refused to pay back a sum of 8.6 million kwacha that was paid to the Hotel in form of allowances.
Umodzi Park officials that appeared before the Public Accounts Committee of parliament today say they did nothing wrong in the deal.
They say, if there is anything wrong and suspicious then DODMA should be responsible for it.
“DoDMA has written us to say ‘refund’ our 8.6 million kwacha but how should we do so when they are owing us money amounting to K17 million. We are not refunding any money” – said Ronuel Malikita Umodzi Park General Manager.
The 6.2 Billion kwacha Auditor General’s report stated that 8.6 million kwacha was paid to Umodzi in form of airtime and fuel allowances.
The report described the payment as ‘dubious’ but DODMA’s risk and recovery Director Dyce Nkhoma described the payment as an error on their part.
The committee then ordered DODMA to recover the 8.6 million a demand the hotel insists will not be fulfilled on their part.
