The Office of the Contractor General, OCG, has found evidence of nepotism, favouritisim, and possible corruption by two councilors at the Hanover Parish Council.

Lloyd Hill is councilor for the Sandy Bay Division, and Anthony Walker is councilor for the Cauldwell Division.

According to an OCG report tabled in Parliament this week, the councilors awarded millions of dollars in contracts to their family members and political affiliates.
