Confirming the delivery of less foodstuff, a Muslim cleric who spoke to the Standard mentioned: “We were surprised to receive just less than half of what the President announced in public.”
According to delivery receipts signed by a director at the Directorate of Special Programmes, the donations were delivered in two vehicles that ferried 200 bags of rise, 200 bags of beans and 50 cartons of cooking oil.
It is noted that the first truck under registration number GKB 012B, delivered 100 bags of 50kg rice, 100 bags of 50kg beans and 50 cartons of 24 containers of cooking oil. The truck was released by a depot manager at the National Cereals and Produce Board.
Whilst the second vehicle, registration number GKB 805G, delivered 100 bags of 50kg rice and 100 bags of 50kg beans.

Speaking on the same, State House revealed that it was not aware of the shortfall in the delivery of the food donated. It however will launch investigations to establish the whereabouts of the remaining goods.

“We expect that once the President officially flags off goods, they must be delivered in totality. Now that you have brought it to our attention, we are going to conduct an inquiry to establish the truth,” State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena told The Standard.
