Ruling Democratic Progressive Party Regional Governor for the South Charles Mchacha has fired back at Kamlepo Kalua for failing to provide names of ministers he alleged to have been involved in the infamous corruption scandal called cashgate.
Kamlepo had reportedly told the nation that Ministers in the current DPP administration were mentioned in a report sent to parliament.
President Peter Mutharika gave Kamlepo 24 hours to produce the names, however he has not been able to produce a single name.
Mchacha, speaking at a rally at Ntambanyama on Thursday where president peter Mutharika held a ground breaking rally for Thyolo Makwasa Thekerani Muona road said DPP is angry with Kamlepo for trying to ridicule President Mutharika and his administration.
He expressed sadness that every word from President Mutharika ends up being twisted and said time has come to retaliate.
Mchacha who is a member of Public Affairs Committee rebuffed Kamlepos allegations that ministers are implicated in the cash gate report that was sent to parliament.
He asked Kamlepo to give up the names if he has them or should stop. Mchacha said they have power to take him to court.
“Report does not mention any name; I am a member of the committee” he said.
The Regional Governor further went on to say Kamlepo is afraid and urged Malawians not to have envy and talk bad about each other rather encouraged unity to develop the nation.
Minister of Information, ICT and Civic Education Patricia Kaliati echoed the sentiments saying since Kamlepo cannot bring out the names he should go to the Ministry of Justice and submit the alleged names.
Kaliati said he should not tarnish reputation of the minister, else he will be inciting violence in the country. She further said what Kamlepo is purportedly doing is defamation
She said, “We will not allow Kamlepo to ridicule the president. If Kamlepo cannot talk to the media or parliament he should disclose them to the minister of justice.
“Auditor general has since issued a statement that no name was mentioned in the cash gate report denying Kamlepos claims.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
