Cashgate gunshot survivor Mphwiyo allowed to travel to South Africa for surgery

Cashgate suspect and former Ministry of Finance budget director Paul Mphwiyo Paul Mphwiyo has been allowed by High Court in Lilongwe that he can travel to South Africa to undergo a follow-up surgery scheduled for July 21 2015 on his jaw following his shooting on September 13 2013.

Mphwiyo: Gun shot survivor in Malawi ‘cashgate’

Mphwiyo’s lawyer, Shadreck Mhango of KD Freeman and Associates, assured the court that the gun short survivor would return to Malawi as he has previously done when he was last granted permission to travel to South Africa,.

High Court judge Charles Mkandawire ordered that Mphwiyo should travel on July 19 and return by August 2 but that his passport would continue to be in the custody of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).

The judge also imposed another condition for the travel that Mphwiyo should surrender copy of air ticket to the ACB and upon arrival at OR Tambo International Airport in South Africa then surrender his passport to the Malawi High Commission there.

Mphwiyo is facing charges of theft and money laundering K2.1 billion ($4.7 million).

But he is a victim of the shooting outside the gate of his Area 43 residence in Lilongwe when he was budget director in the Ministry of Finance.

Former justice minister Ralph Kasambara, Pika Manondo and McDonald Kumwembe have a case to answer on the attempted assassination of Mphwiyo.

Apparently, the arrest of accounts assistant Victor Sithole – currently serving nine years in jail with hard labour for his part in the K24 billion ($53.3 million) “cashgate” corruption scandal – in August 2013 kick-started what became known as the “cashgate” affair – the worst financial scandal in the country’s history.

It became public knowledge a month later following the shooting of Mphwiyo.

zinenani banda

Phwiyo repent and do an honest job.God will forgive you.Chuma cha umbanda sunapeze nacho mtendere.You wasted partying ndi ndalama za cashgate while a common Malawian was lacking essential services in healthcare.Kuombeledwa konsekuja anali matembelero.You were bringing bad karma to yourself.Mayi wako Joyce Banda amakuchemelera is not where to be seen.She is in her self imposed exile.Nayenso akuopa kuti azamuchosa masagwidi ndi zipolopolo.Malawians are very angry people with these cashgate issues.


Hm Pay Back Time!


Koma azimayi muli pa mavuto. Moti wina akumayitana achikulirewa kuti “Honey!!??” Kuopsa amwene kuli bwino nkhale mbeta.

Its better to live in a modest house built by your own money than living in a mansion full of issues.The man has lost all the respect.

He has money but no peace of mind.If he made money on his own through businesses he wouldn’t be going through all this.Look now some people in hospitals in Malawi died because of greediness of these people.Koma anthu timalangidwa pa dziko lapansi pompano.He no longer have respect for the money he spent on beer parties.


Mulibe ziwili passportzo?. Pajatu with money you can even have morethan 10 coppies of passports ku Malawi.
