According to Nyasa Times:
Nearly a third of the £2m spent on Scotland’s Malawi programme has gone on running costs, rather than helping those in need, BBC Scotland has found.
The amount is about five times the running costs for similar work carried out by a Westminster department [DFID].
The details followed a BBC request under the Freedom of Information Act.
The Scottish Executive insisted value for money was still being provided and said that costs were likely to be higher at the beginning of the project.
