The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is set to investigate alleged misappropriation of funds meant for School Feeding Programme in the Sekyere East District Assembly in the Ashanti region.

The District Chief Executive (DCE), Mary Boatemaa Marfo has been accused of allegedly awarding school feeding contracts to fictitious caterers and bloating enrollment figures.

The exposé was championed on Fabewoso, the anti-corruption segment on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem programme, Wednesday.

It emerged that, the Sekyere East DCE, who acted as School Feeding Coordinator at the Assembly, allegedly created non-existing schools and received monies for them.

When contacted by show host Captain Smart on the matter, Madam Marfo accepted her blunder and promised to refund the monies paid.

But, days after the issue broke, she has refused to comment on the matter and has not refunded the money.
