Kalonga used my company certificate to ‘cashgate’ K105m – Ketengeza

Businessperson Angela Katengeza, who owns Faith Construction, has told Lilongwe High Court that former deputy director in the Ministry of Tourism, Leonard Kalonga approached her to use the construction certificates of her company, to get jobs within the Ministry of Tourism.

Kalonga: Case to answe

The two were found with a case to answer by High Court in Lilongwe to charges related to the Cashgate corruption scandal in the civil service.

In her defence, Katengeza told the court that Kalonga approached her on July 3 2013 asking to use the construction certificates of her Faith construction company.

During the trial, the court heard from an investigator in the Fiscal Department of the Malawi Police Service, that Kalonga used Katengeza to siphon K105.6 million from government.

Earlier, Judge Fiona Mwale revoked the bail for Kalonga after he failed to show up for court to start defending himself

His stand-in lawyer Manuel Theu failed to bring medical evidence of his illness.

The judge was not pleased when Theu informed the court that his client was admitted to Dae Yung Luke Hospital.

She also rejected the defence’s application for adjournment in the absence of lead counsel Joseph Kamkwasi who was attending a funeral

But the Judge later reserved her earlier decision following an appeal.

    How did Leonard Kalonga approach you? Was it in bed? We know Kalonga as a womanizer and his first marriage fell apart for the same reason and now a woman has betrayed him into stealing millions our taxes. Tourism was the weakest link because even the PS is prison. Namata is now in. A Leonard sendelani. You may ask Mayi Chiponda to sing for you.

    Reference to End said “Asians are to blame’ firstly I know that you are an Asian try to defend your evil cause in the looting of Malawi resources . All you should know is that your days are numbered Malawi and are building consensus to agree that our country has gone to the Indians we are soon going to claim what rightly belongs to us . Eat with roses old leaders for now . We will invoke the ideal of idi amini . Africa for Africans and Malawi for Malawians

    Surely this must be very shocking indeed how can some hire lawyers and they tell her to say that Kalonga used my certificates really?? Those certificates were issued to you madam the least you could have done was to make sure they were going to be used for the right business legit and transparent but no you knew very well it was all shady and you went along with it. Only in Malawi can a court waste resources to entertain such nonsense. What a joke of a Nation we are.

    1. Youth League Chairman: Kawale 1 market says:

      From my analysis, Leonard was simply a thief gone wild abusing the system. period. Repent, return all monies you stole. Almighty God will forgive you. There are streets of gold in heaven. Not near anything we see in Dubai, Sandton, canary wharf, etc. There is life after jail.

If u go to Area 43 snooping around and politely ask the workers when u come to any imposing structure and they will tell u it belongs to a cashgaters who uses his friends or relationships to supervise and provide logistics. The owners come at night for inspection. Sleepy Police, sleepy ACB, sleepy Malawi Courts

  32. Likoma Economist says:

    I’ve said this before. These cases will be just a circus and will go on forever. The solution here is for govt to speed up the process by hiring foreign independent prosecutors and judges. I am sure donors can finance that. All these cashgaters would be quickly tried, convicted, sent to jail, their assests sold. End of story. Then we would focus on how to develop this poorest country on earth.

  33. John says:

    Why is everyone involved in the cashgate cases all of the sudden getting sick and being admitted to hospitals?

  34. SOME GVT. MPs. MINISTERS, DIRECTORS,PSs,ADVISORS, GOVT OFFICIALS ARE IN THIS CASHGATE RING SO THE DELAY TO BE THERE ———SORRY AND OH ! AH! MY GOD —— ———– THIS IS MALAWI WITH ITS GREEDY LEADERS IN ALL SECTORS. MALAWI CAN NOT BE DEVELOPED WITH THIS KIND OF ATTITUD OR MANNERS.

  35. Alufeyo says:

    If Kandoje is to be blamed then all the cheques that he signed when he was AG should be treated as fraudulent. Approvals come from ministries. Who put the money in the accounts of those ministries? Surely it wasnt Kandoje. Abiti Mangarita its obvious you are one of the suffering COs. The truth is that you are plain stupid to have been used as fodder.

  37. Abiti Mangarita says:

    I totally agree with Hon. Davis Katsonga when he questioned the integrity of Government in the way cashgate cases are being handled. Hon. Davis Katsonga wondered why the Former Accountant General, Mr Kandoje has up to now no case to answer yet he is the one who authorized payment of all the cashgate cheques. if he was not involved in this scam, he could have sounded a warning to Government and stopped payment of all the suspicious cheques, but Nay, he went ahead signing everything that he came across, meaning he knew what was happening and he also benefited from the looting. Please inu ma Judge< NO SELECTIVE JUSTICE, Mulungu sakondwera ndi chigamulo chanu chopotoka, Arrest Mr Kandoje immediately! you may think you have gotten away with this, but i promise you former Accountant General that God is watching and He is the Best Judge! your turn is just around the corner. those junior officers you used are on interdiction and suffering while you are still drawing your salary, God is good all the time!
