Ganizani Kuchombo: Arrested for money laundering

ACB spokeswoman Egritta Ndala said in a statement made available to Nyasa Times that Kuchombo was arrested in the capital Lilongwe in relation to payments that were made to Thuso Group without supplying contracted goods/services to the Malawi Defence Forces (MDF).

A total of K1.5 billion cheques were paid to South Africa based Thuso Group owned by Alexander Banda and Nelson Kauwa.

“The Bureau has established that part of the money paid to Thuso was transferred into Ganizani Sionga Kuchombo’s bank accounts both in Malawi and South Africa,” Ndala said.

According to ACB, Kuchombo is likely to be charged with one count of Money Laundering contrary to Section 35(1) (d) of the Money Laundering, Proceeds of Serious Crimes and Terrorist Financing Act and tax related charges

Ndala said Kuchombo will be taken to Court after the Bureau has recorded statements from him.

    What about DPP gurus? What about 92 billion? What about Mulli? I hv never heard a politician arrested on Cashgate allegations why? Where is Khumbo Kachale? Stop arresting anawa timachange chabe iti, they were just used by our greedy politicians… This Cashgate thing could have been cleared if MCP was in power otherwise nothing tangible will be done bcoz DPP and PP are all children of a great thief UDF…

    My money my Tax, we are deducted lots of monies in what ever we do, and some pipo getting the monies without supplying goods or services. MaRubbish we sweating for these monies thats why I get reluctunt paying packing fee coz its all money wasted with poor and dirty roads. Asa am proud of malawi but not proud of malawians.

    A ACB ndiye kuti anthuwa mumawadziwa eti? Koma bola musamamange a boma la mayi lokha. Nanga Mulli, George Chaponda, Henry Mussa, APM, State House Staff. Why selected justice? If you are good at your job why selecting arrests and leaving others. Tagwilani ntchito ngati mumathadi, osati zosankhazo.

    Elementary lessons for our investigators: first go through the history of the suspect. Here get to know the suspect. When they were born, year of birth, education etc. Second, the connections. Here dig out their friends, allies political or otherwise. Find out all connections to influential people in politics government businesses etc. Third look at bank accounts. Here find out sources of income, receivables, transferables, look at phone numbers. Then build a picture from all this information. This should be done before the arrest is effected. It appears that arrests are made hastily. I see no reason why ACB should be arresting for a money laundering offence when we have fiscal police.

      This man is a diplomat at the Malawi Consulate in Johannesburg.

  17. Moya says:

    Who made the payment? who transferred money to S.A account? who owns Thuso group? how did they use MDF account? any inside links? what about at the ministry? what about at RBM acct Number 1? who did he share with or what did he invest in? i hope one day we will have all these answers no matter how long it takes.
