Internal auditors key in corruption fight
By Patience Lunda
The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) has stressed on the need for public and private actors to continue engaging internal auditors as they help in creating strong internal controls which deal with issues of corruption.
The remarks were made when the institute was donating books at Lupaso Community Day Secondary School in Mzuzu on Tuesday.
IIA President, Dickson Chisambira said internal auditors play a critical role in raising an alarm that helps to control fraud and corruption in a society.
“Internal auditors ensure that system controls are strong which is why they need to be engaged to make sure that the audit functions are effective, properly positioned and even in the hiring process they have to hire the right auditors,” he said.
Northern Education Division Desk Officer for Secondary Schools, Juliana Kamanga said many schools in the division are lacking learning and teaching materials hence hailing the auditors for their gesture.
“The Ministry of Education has a lot of work to do in as far as provision of resources is concerned and we are also relying on other partners for this to be achieved,” she said.
On her part, Lupaso Community Day Secondary School Head teacher, Wezzie Banda said the donation would go a long way in improving performance of learners at the school.
Lupaso Community Day Secondary has an enrollment of 380.
