Deal with K92bn DPP-era cashgate, opposition calls on Malawi President

Malawi opposition and human rights campaigners have said President Peter Mutharika should deal with the K92 billion cashgate corruption scandal which occurred during the DPP reign alongside the K20 billion looting which continued under the Peoples Party (PP).

Chakwera: Deal with K92 billion cashgate

Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHHR) official Makhumbo Munthali said the group applauds Mutharika on the remarkable steps his government was taking on dealing with K20 billion Cashgate but noted with dismay that the President in his state of the nation address in parliament did not touch on what steps his government was putting in place to come to the bottom of K92 billion cashgate following German government’s pledge to support the forensic audit.

“Malawians expect that the two matters (K92 billion and K13 billion cashgates) should be earnestly investigated, prosecuted and brought to their finality without favour,” Munthali said.

CHRR said it is disheartening that the government has not come out in the open to unveil the steps it has taken to come to the bottom of the K92 billion cashgate which the German government offered a helping hand for investigations.

The opposition leaders in parliament have also slammed the Mutharika government of being reluctant in probing the K92 billion cashgate under the DPP rule.

The opposition feel there is selective prosecution on cashgate as ruling DPP members are given amnesty.

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarous Chakwera said efforts to address cashgate head on and root out its causes are not satisfactory.

“ We are not impressed by the President’s claims of a crackdown on cash gate style corruption when he remains silent about the 92 billion kwacha scandal previously perpetrated under the watch of his own party,” said Chakwera who is also leader of opposition.

Following the Cashgate revelations, donors withdrew aid and Malawi has been operating on a zero-aid budget, a situation that has caused misery to Malawians economically.

In his speech, PP parliamentary leader Uladi Mussa accused Mutharika’s “silence” on why donors are still withholding aid.

Mussa said “the issue that will unlock aid is a probe in the K92 billion. Why is this government failing to do the needful? “

    This is simple. Starting point is the Germany government and ambassador.

    These people lied to us when they said they would sponsor the audit. Am sure Germany has not engaged PWC and the money can not be given into Nyasaland government safes.

    Let Germany update Malawians on their promise to sponsor the audit.

  2. Prosecuting before the audit is over, mind you the audit was given to private audit firm which is abit doubtiful in its conduct PWC. It made the MEC to close with allegged !.4 billion and k400m.Then MEC was vindicated I questio mark its capability to conduct this audit well.

    WOMEN ARE BRAVE indeed! JB was so courageous enough to open up to all kind audits including international forensic for her own Govt, she even scored by not pushing the K92bilion first because it would have been construed as covering up her sins and persecution of DPP members, now what are the men afraid of? I thought we were meant to believe that men are best leaders?

    The only way APM can be taken seriously and trusted is by doing what JB did by letting the nature of justice take its course in his own Govt

  6. Chimangenimapiko says:

    Why struggling with innocent DPP?

  7. Biyisikolo says:

    DPP, PP and UDF are all but one party. The people who formed and run these parties are genetically thieves Muluzi 1.7 billion, Bingu 92 billion and JB 13 billion. APM has just started NACGATE. Social media supporters of these parties are blood sucking satanists. Why support Hardcore Criminals? Why?

  11. big chimbly says:

    How do u expect him to tackle the issue of 92 billion when he is part of it. Impossible!

  12. Am sick and tired with DPP on K92bn. If u analyse critically u will see that the amountis more than K92bn as only 10Ministries were audited out of 33.Ask how did Bingu raise K62bn. A lot is at stake here.Just fancy a year has now passed not a single item has been delivered to schools. Where is the money that was allocated for T/L Resources? It didn’t take JB a year to bring in auditors then what’s the problem with Peter? He almost all DPP gurus are involved.

    Osamuuza nthawi yake joyce banda kuti afinye DDP 92billion, nthawi yakutherani. Asiyeni anzanu atukule dziko. Chitukuko simukuchiwoma anthuni kuti Malawi ikusitha. Yakhulani nzadzeru timve dziko lipite patsogolo.

    Bravo Dr L. Chakwera you really represent us. God has chosen you for a purpose indeed to lead Malawi 2019.

  17. Khuth'upa o'Machemba says:

    oChakwera; Baba, palibe nkhani apa. 92 yachani? Credible auditors will not find anything. and that will just leave MCP wondering, and with mouth wide open.
    MCP would be wise to deal first with their crimes, I mean really severe crimes against humanity, committed in their earlier incarnation. Those are major issues in the eyes of most Malawians; and many are still spending sleepless nights after experiences they went through during the dictatorship!

  18. Nyampini says:

    DPP can never investigate K92billion inasowaija,akupitiliza ndi K5billion kunamizila paying a loan for Mulli at MSB

  21. Zanga Phee! says:

    It is not too let we still eyeing. Bingu thinks he can Bury us alive,the goodness Mr chakwera will not rest until truth shall prevail you have no choice Mr President and your DPP time is coming where all the concerned parties shall brought to book.See my name

  22. Chakwera Chakwera Chakwera Chakwera who dont know that chimanga chakwera mtengo?First,Malawi High Court in 2013 ordered Malawi govt under the trial and error leadership of the then interim president,Joyce Banda,to pay Mulli group of companys 6billion for flouting a contract agreement.Second,the Germany govt offered over 8billion for forinsic auditing into the 92billion audit query.Waterhouse and Coopers an audit firm,have been given 18months of which only 5months has elapsed.So,why are we clapping and whistling for pastor nyauking in his lack of knowledge and update on current affairs? According to the state of affairs,pastor nyauking is missing a point….

  24. Sapitwa says:

    This hypocrite has run out of ideas. He is not dynamic fitting the Leader of Opposition in the House. His head is full of cotton. Some would call him madeya.
    MCP, it’s time you started eyeing for another Leader, uyu sakuwinutsani ata pang’ono come 2019!

  25. Sapitwa says:

    What about the cash gate committed by your MCP Kamuzu who claimed rent for Sanjika Palace and other houses as if they were his and other cash gates to the tune of over US$ 320m over the years? The money that the MCP owes the Lilongwe City Council, did you pay that you hypocrite? Wasn’t this cash gate over the years? Probe MCP, Bakili knows it in and out and can be the witness.

  27. Julie says:

    John Tembo said, # 1 Section 65 and then budget and what is Lazarous Chakwera and Uladi Musa saying? You are our hope. And dont forget to ask about the K8 bn for cement and iron sheet subsidy, how many benefited?

  28. chikoya says:

    Mr/Madam Mhesha we r hearing it from u that an audit into the MK92BN is currently taking place. If this is true then APM must be the most myopic guy on earth by not telling the nation that such an important activity is taking place in mother malawi. Otherwise,I dont doubt u were a beneficiary and u r haunted by the possible probe hence ur dreams that the audit already started.

  29. Tsiripas says:

    Mcp is insane, wait for your time, we hav many problems to deal with. Go to ndata & ask bingu

  30. honourable says:

    I blame everyone who was involved in elections irregularities, if Peter won fine and fair if he lost and rig then we can complain. Voters are also contributers

  31. Zachisoni Phiri says:

    Poor LC where were u in time of budget review

  32. Alufeyo says:

    The 92 billion scandal doesnt need Germany expertise it is a simple and straightforward issue. The German firm will not be given adequate information and cooperation for obvious reasons. The verdict will be ” documents have been found so it was not theft”. Remember that the culprits are at statehouse some in embassies. In addition NAO already okayed some of the transactions as being above board. Countrymen dont waste your time. While we are all sleeping check Central Medical Stores where hundreds of billions are being stolen by Kaupa and company encouraged by statehouse.

  33. mbani says:

    We can’t progress without donor money just come out on 92 billion simple. MPs make sure that two things r sorted out be4 sine die the 92 billion and MEC reforms.

  34. Abk says:

    I understand lazarus chakwera is confused and too opportunistic. how many commission of enquiries should be set to investigate the matter? he has been following the country’s developments well after he lost miserably on May 20th election, that he’s aware German government already pumped in the funds to carry out such investigations. his own loud mouthpiece , jesse kabwira, praised German government for this development, Price Waterhouse and Coopers is carrying out such investigations. chakwera is a frustrated man and he’s being used by joyce banda to derail the government’s developmental programmes for their personal interests. he’s too greedy and power hungry that’s why he secretly met joyce banda in south africa three weeks ago, alongside with other pp officials and few PAC members, discussing the ways of dealing with the present leadership.

    92 bn scandal number 1,,,,Budget number 2.kkkkkk.Alongosole abwiribwisiwa.

  43. True Malawian says:

    Amayi, I mean JB must be saluted by opening our eyes on chronic public plunder that has hugely contributed to the fat berries of the few rich crooks in Malawi and their wicked and unadmired stolen properties. She honestly took a political, economical, spiritual and social decision for the purpose of Malawi and Malawians. Where is the love of our leader who let and see everybody suffering by not taking action against individuals that plundered public resources. After all, K92 billion was plundered in watch of the former president, Bingu may his Saul rest in peace. When shall Malawians have true leadership of purposeful vision and statesmanship like that of Late Kamuzu Banda and JB?

  44. Mhesha says:

    LC is just crazy. Have u forgotten that the Germany government is funding the audit process which according to the audit firm, Price Waterhouse and Coopers, the task was allocated18 months.Currently 11 months is left for the work. The report will be prepared and presented to relevant authorities including Parliament. So what should APM do on that? Should he interfere with the auditors.
    One thing is very clear here about this ex pastor, he is full of discontent because after leaving the altar he anticipated to go straight into the state house a thing that remains far fetched.

    1. Makaiko says:

      Koma abale inu,mwati ex mbusa ameneyu akhoza kudalitsa chinthu?ankaona ngati kuti iye wopemphera awina,anzake enawo asatana.amasewera ndi Mulungu.zaka zonse zasalazi mtima uzingompwetekabe?he is not at peace

    Fisi oro atakulira ku US adzakhalabe fisi oro atakhala ku Namiwawa. Take the dpp leadership headon. Apa zakomera mbuzi kugunda galu. Selective prosecution is justice denied.
