Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) has urged the country’s youths and women to take a keen interest in how the government spends money on development projects.

EAM Advocacy Officer Robert Masikamu was speaking in Lilongwe on Friday during a two-day training for youths and women in the Enhancing Church Engagement in Peace Building, Electoral Governance and Decentralisation Project.

“We pay tax, no matter how small it could be. When all the taxes are brought together, they are used for implementing development projects.

“It is, therefore, our duty to ensure that our taxes are put to good use by, among other things, ensuring that the money is being used for the intended purpose,” Masikamu said.

The Enhancing Church Engagement in Peace Building, Electoral Governance and Decentralisation Project is being supported by Bread of the World.

About 30 youths and women attended the training.

EAM Lilongwe Youth Network Chairperson Miriam Chiuma described the training as an eye-opener.

“There are many development projects taking place in Malawi. Others are progressing well while others are not. It is our duty to make sure that projects that are not progressing well get back on track by taking to task duty-bearers,” Chiumia said.
