The Unggai-Bena District in the Eastern Highlands Province has submitted its 2015 District Service Improvement Program (DSIP) and District Support Grant (DSG) Acquittals to the Department of Implementation and Rural Development.

Unggai-Bena MP, Benny Allan, Eastern Highlands Provincial Administrator Solomon Tato and Acting District Administrator, Jonathan Resis, were present to hand over the district’s DSIP and DSG acquittals to acting secretary for Department of Implementation and Rural Development, Paul Sai’i.

The acquittals contain a detailed report of the district’s expenditure of K30 million expanded over the last 3 years.

He said from investigations, four cheques costing K26,000 were drawn without the endorsement from the DDA officials which led to a reshuffle.

“If it is happening in a best performing district like Unggai-Benna it is happening in other districts as well,” Provincial Administrator, Solomon Tato said.

A Project Management Committee was established to transparently manage the use of these funds.

Mr Resis, Acting District Administrator, will work closely with other administrators to make sure accountability prevails.

In addition, Resis says public servants need to be upskilled, and working as a team will achieve more for the district.
