The SRC President of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) Mwin Zumah has been suspended for allegedly embezzling funds of the Council.
Mwin is said to have spent GHC25,000 on project work training seminar for final year students in the first semester 2019/2020 academic year according to an independent audit report.
The audit report further indicated that there were no source documents for this transaction as the auditors could not verify what this amount was spent on and whether or not the full amount was spent.
The SRC President was suspended on Monday, February 24, 2020, by the General Assembly for failing to appear before the Assembly to account for these monies.
“An amount of GHS25,000 handled by the President which was used in organizing a project work training or seminar for the final year students has been signed, approved and spent," he said.
The project work seminar which was supposed to last for three days, lasted two days but was budgeted for three days with the SRC president saying GHC6000 was spent each day with not even more than 60 students attending this event in all three days.
Speaking to Citi News, the speaker of the UPSA’s General Assembly, Gavie Prince, confirmed that some monies cannot be accounted for and some procurement was done without recourse to the tendering body or committee.
The SRC President also spent over GH¢28,677 on the purchase of stationery materials and office equipment for the SRC in 2019.
In total, an amount of GHC55,677 was spent without approval by the General Assembly.
