The buses, six in total, were obtained by some individual through Cashgate.

Speaking when he handed over the buses Tembenu said donating the buses to public institutions is one way of returning to the public what belongs to them.

He said, “money was stolen from public purse and was used to procure the six buses, the buses were meant to be for private use of a group of people who conceived and executed the Cashgate plan”

According to Tembenu the beneficiaries were identified on the basis of real and immediate need.

“The applications were many but we could only give to the few institutions, the other four buses were given to the Malawi Police Service, the Prison Department, Malawi Defence Force and the Department of Aviation ,”disclosed Tembenu.

He further said government is committed to conclude all remaining cases of Cashgate as quickly as possible in order to close the Cashgate episode in Malawi.

Speaking when he received the bus, vice Chancellor for LUANAR Prof. George Kanyama Phiri expressed gratitude and profound thanks for the timeliness of the donation.

He said, “with a population of about nine thousand students, the university needed a bus to transport its students and staff, who were at times using a lorry.

In her remarks Vice Chancellor for MUST, Address Mauakowa Malata said the donations will go a long way in helping the students and staff at MUST who needed proper means of transportation like yesterday.

      Ndipo inu, akuti chani Joyce. Lutepo anakalowa and yet she told us that the vehicles he donated to PP were from his pocket money. Ndi dziko ili. Kuona abale ake amampelekeza ku court Lutepo otuwa okhaokha and yet akwagulila chipani magalimoto. Fotseki

    2. Hava says:

      Indeed we will now need the K62billion kwacha somebody stole because that can buy us 700 such buses but the money is stashed outside the country and some of it was used to build a house/maansion turned manda. We can sell the manda to some Oprah Winfrey and use that money to buy drugs for our hospital

  2. Mukatopa Ndi Cashgate Yanuyo Mutiuza says:
