ACB zeroes in on Lucius Banda over K30mil splash to constituents

Graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau is probing music icon, Lucius Banda on how he got K30 million which he splashed in his constituency.

Lucius Banda: On ACB ‘s radar

Sources say ACB officials will call Banda to ACB offices in Lilongwe to explain the source of his money.

Banda recently gave out assorted items to his constituents in Balaka.

Just recently, the ACB questioned Local government minister Kondwani Nankhumwa after he gave out an ambulance, motor cycles and bicycles all worth K24 million.

Nankhumwa denied any wrong doing in the way he got the money to buy the items.

Lucius Banda is yet to comment on the matter.

    Investigate Chaponda, Nankhumwa , Ben Phiri first as these people are managing public resources not Lucias. ACB is pathetic institution

  3. ACB ikugwilitsidwa ntchito ndi anthu asazindikila ndale. Ndizovetsa chisoni kuti inu a ACB zomwe mukuchita ndi momwe mukuyendetsera ntchito za bungwe lanu. Mukuthandauzanji, ndipo cholinga chanu ndi chiani? This means you shall call every body who is doing well, even any body who is doing well in the village. How could you attack innorncent people who are not accounted to Government or country ‘s enconomy why? Leaving bounsers which are close and accountable to Government enconomy. ACB gwilani ntchito yanu osati uchita kutumidwa, chifukwa nanunso mudzafufuzidwa ndi ena. Ndidziko ili. Kodi ndi anthu angati ali ndi nyumba zopatsa chidwi? Onse mudzaitana? Musasiye zomwe zili m’bwalo, Yehova akukuwonani. Chitani chilungamo pantchito yanu. Welengani Aroma 2 v 1 to 3.

  9. Lack of knowledge says:

    Akakhala LB ali ndi makobili kale. Akakhla Chakwera ali ndi makobili kale. Akakhala nankhumwa or Chaponda aba?

  10. Yahya Jammeh says:

    ACB Fan your conversation of MK30 million to USD3,000 is completely wrong. I don’t know which rate you have used. The correct equivalence is about USD41,000. Just fancy, USD41,000 and how much he earns as MP and how much he gets when he holds a show even if it means doing it for 20 years. You should know how much is shared when one holds a show. Be honest with yourself because the concern here is not that he cannot have this money, but what is his source – that’s the big question. Both his monthly salary and holding concerts have been cancelled outright. I will rule Gambia for a billion years.

  11. mtete says:

    This practice of splashing money iconstituencies must stop. That said, when is ACB visiting Nankhumwa’s house. I bet they will find stacks of money. Come to think of it; the ACB have delayed in taking action such that Nankhumwa has already hidden the loot

  12. Lucious Banda maso ake ali pampando wa Atupele Muluzi and there’s nothing wrong with such ambitions goal. But this is going to devide the UDF and finally kutheratu mwamakatani

  13. Bright Van-C says:

    Akafucheche akapwayi abwamthatha apumbwa,u a bzy worstng our tax payerz money 4 silly issuez lyk za soldier izi mawa muziti no funding yoyendesera milandu yachaponda,itheso zaka case yokut ilipambalambanda, kod akanganya inu bwanji! Inuso mukungoenera kukufufuzidwa mmene mukugwirira vep yanu

  14. Pita Chaponda Mbava says:

    Mbava zazungulira mitu. Pano kungotchula chirichose chokhuza umbava muboma ndekuti ulim’mavuto basi. Chimene ndatolapo Ine ndichoti Lucius akumuwunikira Atupele kuti popitiriza kugwira ntchito ndi DPP akugwetsa chipani cha UDF chifukwa akulu akulu achipani Cha DPP ndi Mbava. Atupele ngati ali okonda chipani osati ndalama akanazindikira kuti ndikofunika kukonza kaye chipani chifukwa chisankho chinawonetsa poyera kuti sizinayende. Koma za m’mene chisankho chinayendera sizikumukhuza Koma akungowona mthumba make. Pamenepo wabwino ndani Lucius kapena Atupele?

  15. Madunvi Khovani says:

    ACB should be left to do its work regardless of who is being probed. It has the mandate to probe any Malawian in accordance with the anti-corruption act.
    However, the ruling party should not be seen to manipulate it to victimize those with dissent views otherwise the whole essence of anti-corruption is wiped away.
    But in this case we can not forget that Atupele is udf/DPP and LB recently attacked his leadership style and betrayal to udf faithfuls. The rest is history.

  16. Gingerson says:

    Lucius Banda has not dished out cash as we are being made to believe here. He has given out loans. meanining he will recover his money at an interest. So ACB better also investigate Vision Fund, Finca, all Saccos etc

  17. Gonyola Stanley says:

    Nikki!Lucius is a man of high integrity.He is always satisfied with what is on his table.Guys open your eyes and see.He is the only member of parliament who has UDF at heart.Without him you will see the untimely death of UDF.Atupele now on propaganda to t destroy good image of wathuwathu soldier mamuna bambo.

  18. ACB fan says:

    30 Million Kwacha is only US$3,000.00. Lucius is a successful musician and can he fail to raise US$3, 000. ACB you are joking. Spend your energy on Nankhumwa who just a few years ago his salary was less than US$50.

  19. Chimanga says:

    Wakutumani ndani? is Lucious a custodian of any government funds?

  20. Maliseni says:

    CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHERE ACB IS BASED ??? ARE THEY RESIDENT IN MALAWI ???? DO THEY REALLY NO PEOPLE TO QUESTION?? I SUSPECT THIS IS POLITICALLY MOTIVATED. THEY WILL JUST WASTE THEIR FUNDS AND TIME QUESTINING A POPULAR AND WELL ESTABLISHED MUSICIAN WHO IS EVEN ABLE TO HIRE WORLD CLASS MUSICIANS LIKE BUSY SIGNAL. ACB MUST PROPERLY SCRUTINIZE THE SUSPECT BEFORE WASTING THE TAX PAYERS FUNDS

  21. petermustfall says:

    OK ,…..WE ARE WATCHING

  22. Brown says:

    kkkkk…iyino nde misala yeniyeni.Zomangochita kuuzidwa basi ,panonkha simungafufuze kodi??.Shame ACB.

  23. chingawa says:

    Lucius Banda is rich he can not fail to pay out K30m, this is very cheap propaganda

  24. Murupale pa Thyolo says:

    For Lucius it is Miracle Satanic Money. ACB bwinotu mukumana ndi Njoka mnyumba zinazi.

  25. ANALYST says:

    This problem will never end until MPs understand and know their role in the country! Their role is not to give out handouts or initiate development projects! Their role is to formulate laws and policies in parliament that will lead to development. Take for example the National Budget – that is a great law and policy which MPs should have been using to make sure their constituencies develop and make progress! Otherwise, with this mentality of giving out freebies, corruption will keep on evolving and politicians will become more sophisticated with their thieving behaviours! Amene ali ndi makutu okumva, amve! Ntchito yanu ma MP sikugawa mabokosi a maliro kapena kukumba mijigooo!!! Chonde tizimva aMalawi

    1. Moto Buuuuu says:

      Follow issues plz! He is not splashing out cash as you ma cadets opemphanu ma bootlickers advocate why victimise those opposing the gvt

  26. lesley says:

    So its means we must always display poverty to prove we are honest. No wonder we have now become the poorest.

  27. Dembwe says:

    This guy started singing in the 90’s and has since been traveling world wide performing do you think he cant afford to source 30 million? This is now politics….why cant you probe Nankhumwa whose history of business is not known yet has millions…..wasting time for nothing

  28. Umbwe says:

    nabola omwe amaba ndikupangila chitukuko mmadera mwawo. kulekana ndiyawo akuba namaika mmatumba awo maiko akunja.

  29. zimachitika izi kwathu ku malawi. ife timangopenya poti maso sakudya.

  30. tman says:

    WHATS HAPPENING TO THE SON OF A POOR MAN,YOU MEAN IS NOW REACH AND EXTRAVAGANT

  31. Yahya Jammeh says:

    Why do our law makers believe in splashing out money to voters like that? The Law Commission should something immediately stop the practice. This is not done in good faith, but to bribe voters which the law does not allow. You should not find your way to Parliament because you are buying poor people with the money. I will rule Gambia for a billion years.

  32. kamulonde says:

    Lucius ndi wa makobidi kale ….ACB, bwanji kodi? He is not even a civil servant kkkkkkk
