ACB quiz business lady Manganaye: AG Kaphale, Matemba clash

Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Monday summoned Ms Manganaye Kambauwa, a socialite and prominent business lady in Lilongwe, to interrogate her in the ongoing cashgate probe.

Manganaye Kambauwa: Questioned

ACB sources said they questioned Kambauwa following a tip off and that she was not charged.

“She was questions on allegations of extortion but no charges have been pressed,” said ACB investigator.

A whistle blower is said to have claimed that Kambauwa and Peoples Party official Ephraim Chivunde took K15 million  from cashgate chief suspect Osward Lutepo to pay off  ACB.

The money was allegedly paid by a contractor Israel Kaunda on behalf of Lutepo.

The anti-graft investigator said Kambauwa gave her side of the story in an  interview conducted by ACB  officers.

ACB investigator told Nyasa Times that Kambauwa denied the allegations and suspected it was work of one lawyer who is also answering cashgate related cases to “smear many people and confuse the cashgate trials.”

She claimed the lawyer is on “social media trial on cashgate and wants to win a court of public opinion” and that he has hired some reporters to be spinning stories in the smear campaign and also targets at Peter Mutharika administration.

Kambauwa  ACB interview comes hot on the heels of reports that ACB deputy director Reyneck Matemba and Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale have been exchanging emails attacking each other on the handling of the cashgate cases.

Matemba accused the Attorney General of compromising the prosecution of cashgate suspects like Paul Mphwiyo, Victor Sithole and  convict Treza Namathanga Senzani, who were once his clients on Cashgate.

The Principal Prosecutions Officer, Jacob Nambiri  has meanwhile reported Kaphele to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Mary Kachale  complaining that the AG was blocking the officers from doing their jobs.

Kaphale reportedly ordered the release of an Immigration Repatriation Officer, Pius Thamando, who was arrested for perjury.

The officer laid under oath in an inquiry over the deportation an Ethiopian national.

It is alleged that Kaphale also stopped the inquiry into the whole case, by barring the courts from summoning the immigration officer.

But Kaphale has argued that whoever is aggrieved by the court orders obtained “can apply to have the orders dissolved if there were no sufficient grounds to obtain them in the first place”

    woman, what is your question got to do with Peter Mutharika? just answer the questions and not trying to hide behind politics and DPP. if you were involved, you will be arrested, if you’re not then fine not dragging our president into this. personally, i know you were involved.. you remember that very big check 114?

  4. Medusa says:

    Just wondering how this Government with all the machinery at its disposal is dancing to this mafia lawyer’s tune. we know he is the main cashgate squanderer and corrupt. Has the Government forgotten about the pay outs he ochastrated when he was AG? He is bitter with Kaphale coz they have been rivalries since university days and he knows he is the only person that can finish him off apart from Bruno kalemba! Government Please work UP!

  5. Tuwatogolere says:

    My simple question is People like Mrs Senzani and othe cashgate looters where are they or did they get the money to pay Kaphale & Company thelegal fees? Deposit for their cases? Is it not from the same looted money. If so, can we really our esteem AG is clean? I will not ask the same of Lough Kambara because he is not holding a public office but for the AG representing looters paying fees with lloted mone is just embarrassing pang’ono

  9. All these you call judges, Lawyers and politicians are thieves this is arottern country

    1. Inu says:

      Yes, its a pitty. Our systems have failed us. We can manage to hold people to account and sadly we have internalized a culture of theft and corruption. It will take strong political will, heavy handedness and a long period to turn Malawi around. Poor our children who are born into this immoral society

  10. Chinziri says:

    I don’t want to comment about the rest of the story , but just to open the eyes of most sleepy Malawians that this so – called lawyer Roughneck Kasathief is indeed busy trying to confuse our minds by bringing in names of people who are not connected to this cashgate shit to make us believe that they , not him, are the real culprits . He is tirelessly spending time on the internet spinning story after story . Wake up my fellow Malawians .

  11. PHYATANGU says:

    KAPHALE IS BLOCK TO THE PROGRESS THAT GOVERNMENT TOOK TO RESOLVE THE LONG AWAITED CRUCIAL CASH GATE ISSUES. HE MUST BE REMOVED FORTHWITH.

  12. Penyani says:

    These are the spoiled lawyers who Malawians have put responsibilities of justice in their hands. Can we then expect smooth and responsible service delivery, especially when lawyer are negatively and are subtle delivering their servicest

  13. Mngoni weniweni says:

    @ 9, intelliigence unit, the one being referred to here if you are properly following this cash gate commentary is none other than Raphael Kasambara. Open up your eyes man!! Here is a thief masquerading as a lawyer and have the audacity to represent his fellow thieves with the blessing from the Malawi Law Society . Kaya amamuopa Kasambarayu????? Poyamba Maloya ndinkawapatsa ulemu, koma panopa ndachotsa!! Mbuzi za anthu zeni zeni!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Zitsiru za anthu!!!!!!

      Your remarks reminds me of one morning when I went to the Standard bank, Calton Centre branch wi th a query, it was towards the end of the month so the branch was considerably full. While walking towards the queries section, a middle aged man approached me, ” Mamme can you please assit me with my bank account, apparently there are some discrepencies.” I told him that I was not one of the bank’s employees, and he continued to say, ” But your look resembles that of those working here” I was shocked and felt sory for him at the same time, considering the rate of recorded inside bank criminal activities, I then urged him not to trust anyone with regards to his bank account, let alone to judging a book by its cover.

  16. Chakwanuleka says:

    it will not be surprising to see Kaphale joining his companions in the likes of Bophani. This lawyer is a scandal. He was on the forefront of stealing the elections because he new cashgate shadows were following him. usova.

  17. Kenkkk says:

    We have said all along that Kaphale is the main problem or hindrance in the whole cash gate saga. He has alot of conflicts of interest and has hugely helped through his firm launder cashgate money and enriched himself from crime proceeds. He was deliberately chosen by DPP.

    In my opinion ACB should arrest him immediately for perverting the course of justice. He is no different from other lawyers who have laundered money or benefitted from crime money.

    In any other civilized world Kaphale could have been fired, arrested or forced to resign. Yet you cry about donors, don’t you see that donors have eyes and watch with disbelief why Kaphale the attorney general is still in govt with piles of conflicts of interests in his pockets?

  18. tANTHO says:

    my worry:

    1, how did the court allow Mphwiyo to pay a bond of MK18,000,000.00 in cash from a bag?
    2, why can’t the ACB or FInancial intelligence unit interogate him on the same? if the money was withdrawn from the bank, ask for proof.
    3, if the money was not withdrawn from bank, is that not money laundering?

  19. upile kulekangana says:

    Why am I not surprised?

  20. Alungwana says:

    Dont be surprised. Kaphale wil shield his clients in one way or the other

    Who else madam? ITS RALPH KASAMBARA DRUGGING YOU INTO ALL THIS WE KNOW ALREADY HOW HE IS TRYING HIS BEST TO CONFUSE PEOPLE AND TRYING TO BUY CHISONI FROM MALAWIANS WHILE DEEP DOWN HE KNOWS HE IS A CASHGATER BENIFICIRY.

  27. Phwitiko says:

    Peter is heavily involved in this cashgate thus why he fails to publish a full report. DPP are thieves.

    This lady is too sweet to be probed. You know lawyers’ problem is money and women. The worst persons on womanising and cashgating are lawyers. One day I will challenge them in court of law. Of course, the case will not be heard in Nyasaland but Hagues.

  33. VYOTO says:

    IT REMAINS A WONDER WHY PROFESSOR AT LAW, PETER MUTHALIKA NEVER FOR SAW IN THE FIRST PLACE THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST BY APPOINTING THE PRIVATE PRACTICE LAWYER, KALEKENI KAPHALE AS AN ATTORNEY GENERAL.THESE PRIVATE PRACTICE LAWYERS ALWAYS HAVE A LOT OF CLIENTS SOME OF WHOM ARE WORST THIEVES JUST TO SUSTAIN THEIR BUSINESSES. THE LEARNED PROFESSOR ALREADY HAD A CASE OF RALPH KASAMBALA, THE PREVIOUS ATTORNEY GENERAL TO LEARN FROM WHO EQUALLY FOUND HIMSELF IN A CONFLICT OF INTEREST WHEN IT CAME TO CASES INVOLVING HIS CLIENTS. KASAMBALA WAS INVOLVED IN A CASH GATE OF HIS OWN BEFORE THE EVERYONE ELSE CASH GATE.

    “NOTWITHSTANDING THE OBVIOUS CONFLICT OF INTERESTS WHICH WE ARE WITNESSING TODAY, KAPHALE’S APPOINTMENT WAS BASED ON THE LOMWELIZED THINKING”

  34. ELISA CHIMWALA says:

    zilibwino agwidwe ife civil servants tikuvutika kamba ka cashgate.

  35. Jarsn Phiko says:

    I am one of the peolpe that are very confused with how these Lawyers work. It puzzles me to see the President, a Lawyer by profession, making a mistake of appointing someone who was representing the accused to be at the herm of decision making against or in favor of the very people he was representing. This if a clear conflict of interest. Secondly, Kaphale should have rejected this position in the interest of integrity. Thirdly Kaphale should not make any decision in these cashgate cases for the same reason stated above.

    If the present position stands any decision from Kaphales office will not be considered genuine, thus we now hear of the accused wishing to be state witnesses. If they will be so then the whole case shoulb be closed. Do not fool us Malawians with these games because now it is comimg out clear that some big names might be involved. These tricks cant be allowed to continue because we Malawians have suffered a lot. God will judge you people in a very rough manner if you think you are too clever to fool all the poor people in this country. Mufa ndi BP, HEART ATTACK ETC. Be assured of these calamities. Shame.

  39. Intellingence Unit says:

    Why not just mention the lawyer who is busy on social media and who has hire reporters including on nyasatimes to report ill about APM? As if every body does not know and we care?

  40. Yhoooo says:

    asaaaaa. Mrs Mphwiyo the second! It makes sense to have her integrated after she squandered some money with Mphwiyo in Las Vegas style.

    wakuba athawa yekha, bolano asabe passport ya young sister paja amatero Malawi akatentha. Muhahahahahahahaha

  41. Chilungamo says:

    Koma abale chilungamo chidzafika liti kumalawi kuno. Mpaka ebola ifika chilungamo chisanafike.

  42. Abiti says:

    Kaphale has benifited a lot from the cashgate loot! It is therefore doubtful that Malawi will see justice as long as Kaphale is AG. Infanct the government goofed by appointing him as AG. Many cases will die natural death.

    1. Jabulosi says:

      In fact by representing Cashgaters he has already benefited from cashgate money through payments of legal fees by his cashgate clients!!!!!! I CALL UPON HIM TO RESIGN FROM THIS POST OF AG!!! IT IS A SCANDAL!!!!! CONFLICT OF INTEREST!!!!!!

  43. Ngozo says:

  45. Wawaman says:

    The Problem Is Most Malawian Lawyers Are Crooks, This Kaphale And Kasambala Are The Same.This Cashgate Case Will Still Hide Real Culprits, Conviction Will Affect Those Who Were Just Used As Toilet Tissues.

    Again the same people
