"Two independent weekly newspapers have accused the President of the Constitutional Council (Supreme Court), Luis Mondlane, of serious abuse of power. Savana (4 March) claimed Mondlane had ensured that the Council paid off his mortgage for a central Maputo house that cost 24 million meticais ($800,000). Magazine Independente (9 March) printed details of alleged personal expenditure paid from the Council's budget including "personal furniture", a plasma television, and tapestries costing over 2 mn Mt ($65,000). None of the purchases were put out to public tender. Savana also says Mondlane improperly sacked the former general secretary of the Council, Geraldo Saranga, because he refused to use the Councilís money to pay for Mondlane's house."
