Government is yet to formally release details of the comprehensive audit report by the British auditing firm.

Malawians trashed the first audit report, which omitted names of individuals and companies said to be involved in the massive corruption scandal.

In the first batch of list seen by Nyasa Times,  there  is Clive Engineering Company  of   Dennis Mwezi Mhango which cashed MK20,800,078.61;   Covs Landscape Recreation and Nurseries of Omer Daudi Fane Chitipi collected  MK30,965,868.40 and Super Signs  of Alex Black Nyemba got MK600,000.00.

The report also mentions indicted Stafford Mpoola.  He was charged with money laundering and being found in possession of property suspected to have been stolen in a case involving about K1.6 billion.

Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) arrested Mpoola in October 2013 after he was suspected to be involved in siphoning money amounting to K1, 113,397,413.31 from the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) through his company, Stadal Building Construction.

Also mentioned in Kettie Chingoli Kamwangala of Explorations with a cheque payment of   MK16, 750,600.00. She was already charged with money laundering and theft of K28 million (about $70 000) from government and pleaded not guilty to both charges.

The list includes Kaneno Building Contractors with Thokas Satema, Zefaniya Satema and  Ndaona Satema collecting cheques of  MK 27,359,630.43;  MK60,142,560.00;  MK55,182,612.31 and – MK52,466,530.89

Whayo Panel Beating services of Ellard Whayo at Biwi Triangle in Lilongwe appear in the list with K91, 000.00.

Others suspected include Afro Oriental Investments of Jan Davidse, Barbara Ndhlozi, John Douglas Spenser Gray, Hanifa Thomas with payment of MK1, 816,000.00 12. Walusako General Dealers involving Irene Nhlane Zimukilre Mwenechanya and Julia Banda

The list also has Sky engineering of Steven Golden Mwenitete; Dan Civil engineering contractors of Daniel Ndembo, Ziuya construction of Mzipasi Moyo; Standard Freight Services of Patrick Chilalika and Faith Construction Company of Angella Katengeza.

Appearing in the cashgate list also are Megan Construction with MK15 million payment to Doreen Nyirenda and Khumbo Mkandawire; Hardline construction company of  Phyoka Oscar Kaunda – MK17,395,431.20 and Mk15 million to Makhausi constructions of  Fatch Chungano.

Other ‘cashgate’ names in the list are already facing the charges including Sibongile Chimphango, Caroline Savala and Laura Savala.

Businessperson Caroline Savala accused of obtaining about K84.9 million (about $213 000) from Malawi Government pleaded not guilty to the two charges of theft and money laundering.

Building contractor, Laura Savala, is accused of siphoning K160.6 million (about $401 500) through the Ministry of Tourism between July and September this year.

Sibongile Chimphango is accused of stealing K286 million (about $715 000) for payment of services not rendered to government.

Also prominent in the list is chief cashgate suspect Oswald Lutepo, another key suspect Pika Manondo and convicted cashgate prisoner Treza Namathanga Senzani.

The government of Malawi under Joyce Banda leadership hired a British company, Baker Tilly International, to audit its departments between April and September 2013.

The company’s report found the government lost about K13 billion during that period through fraud, theft and unethical actions. The Anti Corruption Bureau said the figure is about K20 billion.

That equates to more than one percent of GDP, in a one of the world’s poorest countries, where state services are poor and life expectancy is just 54 years.

The report says nearly half of the money went to 16 private companies for services they did not provide.

It says this was done by taking advantage of a loophole in the government’s financial management system.

Some 68 civil servants and businesspeople are already on trial charged with graft.

Ex-justice minister Ralph Kasambara and four others face trial for the attempted murder of a former treasury official Paul Mphwiyo who was on the verge of exposing the corruption ring. Mphwiyo himself has also been charged of money laundering and theft.

Foreign donors, who provide 40% of Malawi’s budget, froze vital aid worth around $150m in response.

  9. This money was coming from the government and the government officers were signing the cheques. Who are they? They used contractors to siphon the money and one of them was Leonard Karonga. There are many more and are still working. We want them behind the bars. That is my tax meant for drugs in hospitals.

  28. Suarez says:

    Some comments just show skewed thinking of some people. How many Tumbukas are on the list above. How much in total is the money symphoned by Tumbukas. Compare it to just One Osward Lutepo or Mphwiyo. The full list have very few Tumbukas but some people due to their hate for Tumbukas can’t see it. Just look at the names above and tell me how many Tumbukas are there? Why do you think the government is failing to release the list. You will be surprised my friend? Get a life, otherwise the hatred you have for Tumbukas will suffocate you.

  32. spot on says:

    only 9 firms out of 34 are connected to northeners,thus 26%,does this make northeners more cashgaters than the remaining 74%?,,74% of cashgaters are your brethren,please keep on your hatred,but this will never stop us from pursuing federalism,and if you add upp all the amounts connected to northen firms on the list ndiye muonkhetsele ku 112 billion,muone kuti who is the real culprit of cashgate,you will find the answers yourselves,on the other note,i also dont condone thieving of any kind,let alone this was too much,now if the fight against cashgate will be tribalized then i feel sory for this country,once more,federlism will be pursued until it happens,-on your face haters,freeedom is coming!!!!

  33. Kenkkk says:

    PleAse don’t trivialise cashgate, it is not a regional or tribal problem. It is a national problem that has brought untold suffering to the masses of malawians by these few heartless selfish thieves.

    Please publish the full list so that their names are known and shamed when they walk the streets, even covering themselves with blankets. And that is before justice is done. Actually now they are safer and better in custody than walking the streets, people are very angry!! Turn yourselves in for your own safety you thieves!!!

    And you judges we want no
    Mercy, give them very tough sentences in addition to returning the stolen money and seizing all their assets that don’t match their salaries or businesses. And forget your stupid argument of whether someone or public servant was in control of funds or not. Theft is theft, there is no difference!!! The bible says do not steal, that is it!!!

    And you abc, do your jobs right, track down all their bank accounts including those of relatives. Search all their houses for any stashed up cash under the carpets, cars, gardens, mattresses, wall safes, etc!!! Let us recover as much cash as we can from these crooks and thieves.

    God is watching Malawi, more shocking news will Come!!!

  34. Mgwagwa says:

    What a joke! So Malawi government still takes its citizens as FOOLS! Arresting lesser known and lesser money squanderers in the whole cashgate scandal. Where is Peter Mutharika, Joyce Banda, Ralph Kasambara, of course Mphwiyo and Lutepo. Thats bullshit if you ask me. This is not a leak of names because if it were all those people mentioned could have been mentioned on the list. Please,enough is enough dont string us along like headless chickens. Bring us real names maybe we will still have faith in Malawi and its media and the leadership. Otherwise there is nothing new here. Kungotchulapo Atumbuka okhaokha alomwe nda ayao anali mu boma onse osatchulidwa bwa? Trying to diverge the nkhani kuti aziti regionalism foolish. Givevus real names here mxuii

  35. PHYATANGU says:

    This has exposed why the Tumbukas want federation so that they can plunder at will at home. The list is a big shame to the Tumbuka tribe which is marred with theft of the biggest order in history. Why most of the thieves on the list are from the North? But why you guys from the Nyikaland?
    That is why you will never rule this country. You are thi9eves and a bad clan to say the least on the land.
    You must be ashamed and you better stop making this silly noise. You do not own Malawi. Malawi belongs to us all. That is why you have been giving two former leaders names such NGWAZI so that you can eat our money. This is the end of your road to any higher post late alone presidency. STOP COMMENTNING AND MAKING ANY STUPID NOISE HERE IN MALAWI. SHAME ON YOU ALL

    1. Mgwagwa says:

      Sad! Am not tumbuka but its sad that you are buying into the psychology of naming the most hated tribe so you dont question the news and the real cashgate culprits. People who think like you, are the ones bringing malawi development down. Not because you did cashgate but because you lack critical thinking and the psychology behind the whole issue.

    2. namandwa says:

      These are careless remarks my brother. Not all names are Tumbukas here. Why single out a tribe. You are so filled with hate. By the way a thief is called such when he is caught.

  36. Gagago phiri says:

    Peter is not publishing the names, that is not his duty. There are people responsible for that job, he is just the president of Malawi don’t bring politics here , you wanted the truth and the truth has been revealed, why are you mentioning about tribes Kumeneko ndiye kusowa nzeru. Makampaniwa ndi mitundu ya anthu? Tamakhalani ndi nzeru azombwe.

    1. Mgwagwa says:

    Not suprised that there are more northerners and not surprised that calls for federation comes from the north. Let them have their own country so that they do that to Nyika country.

  44. Mbanangwa says:

    Wait for the 92bn report. Moreover the companies from the north did not pocket like Mphwiyo etc. pocketing 1 million, hat is that? Anthu akutuluka pa bail ndi 10 Mita!

  45. kyroc says:

    its just very unfortunate that as poor as our small country is money z being embezzled in large sums. let those who were involved & r found guilty meet the iron hand of justice.they have caused missery amongst us impoverished malawians.there should be no politicising & politiking in this death marked scandle.if amayi z involved arrest her. don.don`t just tell us that lutepo will implicate amayi for him to be set free when in fact is just a well calculated propaganda that once she is arrested u will say u said it. this z total balderdash! i don`t like it even a bit.

  46. Sidix says:

    I’ve carefully looked at the list of cashgaters and the amounts. Total is about 4.5 billion MK of which about 55million MK has been cashgated by northerners. K3.95 billion is cashgated by us in the Lomwe and Chewa as the list suggests.

  47. eee! koma ndiye kuba pomwe ndalamazo kuwagawira anthu akumudzi atha kupanga nazo chitukuko,its more than fisp budget.Tulutsaniso K92 billion,chilungamo chioneke

  53. Bob says:

    I agree with you. If this government do condone such tribalistic reports. Then they will fall so soon. Any sane politician can not use the venerable minority to advance his stupid greed for his advancement. You will suffer before God takes you. Mumve

  54. mohamad says:

    Frends, controversial at CCAP kanengo congligation. synold now has transfres Chimwemwe Mhango to Euthini away from Ekwendeni. Report say that Nyondo who has sent all his relatives to Lilongwe for a big cash is furious that Christians at Kanego don’t want Nyondos nephew after realizing that at area 49 vestry Nyondo has put his blood sister and an inlaw is at area 47. Nyondos colonization didn’t end there, the entire Lilingwe are his relatives or Chitipa friends. Kanengo Christians have been challenged that SYNOLD OF LIVINGSTONIA CANT LISTERN TO ANYBODY AS NYONDO HAS SENT HIS NEPHEW To spy there. the church should accept them or they will have no reverent.

  55. mohamad says:

    I think as DFID has proposed lets wait for a list from 2005 which will reveal which region has a bigger share. No Aid until this is done, full stop. People of the south you want dodge justice, it will follow your Mumthalika. Tumbukas are not the big fish, where is Khumbo here as claimed???? Stupid Bluits, where is Mama here????? You all fucked, lets fight if you want.

  56. LINESS2 says:

    ACB..please make sure that you also relentlessly follow the local purchasing orders (LOPs) and delivery notes as these may also be fake and NOT genuine……..there is need for physical check on some of these claims on delivery of goods which was hardly there! these crooks!

  58. MESHO says:

    as the theresa namathanga case shows, the anti corruption is corrupt also. theresa namathanga was supposed to save fourteen years. but she will be out in ten months.why because anti corruption.

  59. Muchizi John says:

    Malawi is run by lunatics. Why allow Mphwiyo bail when he has actually confessed to stealing. Mphwiyo doesn’t own any business. His only source of income is his grade D [P2] salary. How does the govt accept its own money as bail surety. Govt knows Mphwiyo has no money of his own except the one he stole through cashgate. Ndithu dziko ndilotembeleledwa……where could it happen govt getting its own money as bail surety for a thief. Unbelievable.

  63. Patience says:

    Mr Tamani read comments on this article & you clearly see how divided the country is with all southerners picking out one tribe as if cashgate has only Tumbuka names. The North must be a standalone country to avoid future genocide. Mind you only few companies are reported here leaving out any name that is of the Lomwe. Bingu alone stole 62 billion 3 times the current cashgate & you know which tribe he came from. Peter has purposefully done this to counter federalism. It is a naive person who can’t see his hand.

  64. Thomas says:

    Becoz the Tumbukaz r educated people in Malawi everyone knows it 4 sure

  65. nkunthamasese says:

    Joice Band is a hero. She ordered the audit to be carried out. But we see the present DPP is continueing cashgating (july – Sept.2014.) 92bil. kufufuza kufulumizidwe these people are professional thieves. mukachedwetsa mudzapeza ataba zonse.

  67. ben says:

    Genuine suppliers to the government take so long to be paid, they keep on auditing which is fine but can ausiting take 1 year, these greedy auditors need allowances so 1 days job, they spend 1 month eating allowances how can genuine supplierts survive,Malawi government is not funding hospitals enough, they are not paying water and escom bills, not pay contractors, no funding so many excuses, i wonder how payments for cashgate went through so smoothly and fast.

    Malawi government now is not a good creditor, beware people they are so useless in making payments to genuine suppliers, but if you are a cashgate supplier yes you will be paid fast, so choose your category

    Bright Msaka has got latest Mercedes Benz ML series. That is all theft as well. Those cars are very expensive.

  76. Nyasa says:

    TUMBUKAS again topping the list. I have been saying on this forum that Malawi would have been a better place without these tumbukas. Please secessed as soon as possible. Mutengenso joyisi mukamapita. She is on the run after her accomplice, Mphwiyo, got netted. Mphwiyonso mumutenge.

    eeeeeeh chewing and stealing our cash in Millions and billions and they are pleading NOT GUILTY! KIDDING ME!

  80. Truth says:

    Am happy that these monies where shared by malawians.To some extent it has reached some of us in the village.Which is fair K62b to one person & k90b to more than a hundred pipo.the bottom line is cashgate or no cashgate malawi will neva dev as we expect it.Greedy.

    There is a deliberate attempt to publish names based on tribes thus Peter’s style. Why doesn’t he publish full report for everybody to check whether there was quota system in cashgate. We know the report will include close friends & relatives of Peter. This country is indeed divided & Peter is the one making break apart. For sure a wise president does not edit a report in order to blackmail a tribe. When the 92 billion report is published it will have 99% Lomwes. Tilly report must indeed contain Tumbukas because JB did unite the country. But all those cashgaters must be gunned down because they are evil hearted regardless of their tribes. But don’t forget Peter & DPP will cashgate the cashgated. Mark my words!

    JB’s name is not featuring in the list, or is it? Now, how will Lutepo(DPP) implicate her? Oh jah by “revising” the Tilly report first, right?
    Desparation at its best!!

    1. Redeemed says:

      Patience, iwe ndi wopenga. Peter has not published any cashgate list. The list you see here is by Nyasa Times, not Peter. Anthu openga mwapanga bwanji?

    2. Mtumbuka says:

      Let us not be talking of tribes here, talk of those heartless people. Be it Lomwe, Chewa, Tumbuka or Tonga, a theif is a theif, no tribe here. Slaughter these haynas. Just smoke them out all at once, we want to know them. These names released are just conduits, the chiefs are still being shielded. Yambirani mu 2005 mpaka lero. No separations or exceptions if justice is to prevail. Amen

    Sadly I see many comments with tribal/regional connotations implying the northerners got the lions share of the cashgate money. Let me from the onset say that any thief whether from the north, centre or south is bad for the development of Malawi. Having said that, if the names mentioned in this article are anything to go by then of the 30 names, 10 are likely from the north. the remaining 20 are from centre and south. It is possible that most are from the south. the names from the north are bundled only in 6 of the 21 companies/groups mentioned. of the approximate total of 4.5 billion mentioned in the article, the amount associated with northern sounding names is 53 million. of course there are no figures mentioned for some of the names. this represents 1% as the figure directly linked to the northern sounding names. And some sad case of a person is mad enough to say over 90% of the cashgaters are from the north? Really? Are we that hateful of our collegues from northern Malawi. how about northerners saying 99% of cashgate money was shared by us from the south and centre and we only had access to 1%? this same conclusion is reached in everything as long as there are more than 2 names from the north then they have dominated be it in football, netball, government, NGO, UN organisation, USAID, British High commission offices in Malawi, everywhere. A Malawi lets direct our energy on positive things zothandiza ife ndi mabanja athu.

      39 you are right. Tribalism, regionalism, sexism and other such vices will not help us build our country. Some people are bent to create hell in the country that is peaceful. It is unfortunate that the leaders we choose are also tribalistic. May God help Malawi!

    3. DA says:

      I respect your comment and I agree with you when you shame people’s hatred for people from the North. But, you cannot expect 1/3 cashgaters to be from the north as although it makes up for around 1/3 of Malawi’s land, it only makes up for 10% (1/10) of Malawi’s people.

      1. Mabvuto says:

        DA, well observed. It is true.

    You mean you Mulhakos, Gule and Achawas can’t defferentiate the names of a tumbuka as regaerds to the other primitive tribes of Malawi. Check the list properly and you will find that there are lesser tumbuka names as compared to others.Don’t hide behind few names of tumbukas for your coruption. Mwaziyalusa nokhatu.

  91. Bus bundi says:

    Shame indeed! someone was cashing here while a poor malawian is truggling with poverty in a remote area in Bundi. He can’t access portable water, he is drinking together with animals, poor transportation bcoz of poor road network. Think of other pple plz!

  92. Gift says:

    Koma nde mwaba zochurukadi chaaaaaa!!!

  93. Darius Mphongo says:

    Kaya waba ndi wa ku South, Central or North is nothing. How does the whole High Court allow Paul Mphwiyo produce K10 Million cash as bail bond? Is an individual allowed to have in his possession all that cash and the courts are convinced to accept this uncalled for monetary practice from a person who is alleged to have stolen the same money being paraded in public? If this is how we are going to continue operating like that as a nation then there is something terribly wrong with our judicial system in the country. Not even a good performing company is expected to produce such an amount in cash hence the culture to transact with cheques and the like. Do you want to say there is a requirement to gather stronger evidence yet the culprits are coming out in the open unchecked or with no questions? Their Captain is busy globe-trotting utilizing the same plundered proceeds and the prosecution is still gathering more stronger implicating evidence; my foot.

    The names are skewed from one region. But why?

    1. Suarez says:

      So Lutepo, Mphwiyo, Manondo, Kalonga, Senzani, Ndembo, Savalas, Katengeza, Chimphango, Mpoola, Chilalika, Hanifa Thomas, Jan Davids, Douglas Spenser, the Satemas, Kamwangala are all from the North. Did you read the article before commenting?If you add all the amounts allegedly simphoned by Tumbukas do they even equal to the amount stolen by one chief cashgater in the name of Lutepo or, Mphwiyo, or Senzani or Kalonga.

  108. wui says:

    You mean all these monies were stolen or approved for collection? Who was issuing these cheques, and if so who was preparing the vouchers? Who was signing and what about the procurement team, who authorised without receiving any goods? Oh my God, koma nde zadyedwa. Pamenepa ndi misewu ingati constructed? What about the buildings? Aaa ayi guys timve zinizeni.

  109. Andrew phiri says:

    If Malawians conclude dat de Tumbukas don’t wish our Nation well a dey wrong? Luk 99% of de cashgaters a northerners bullshit. Enough reason 4dem 2 secede & plunder deir own nation. God bles Malawi.

    1. mboma says:

      hahahahah do u really know tumbuka names??????? check again we know the figure according to the article of the money stolen by tumbukas leas than 100 million and if its 24 billion what do u make of that, check tumbuka names and calculate what they have stolen, paul mphiwyo paid 18 million bailbond to show u that he indeed stole the billions

  110. development retardation says:

    Nice to see these names so send them to Salima District akaone chomwe chidameta nkhanga mpala amenewo. Judges at Salima sanyengelera komanso saona nkhope akamagamula. Just Imagine a certain robber in Salima robed MKW500.000.00 but was charge 12 years in prison with hard labor by Salima Judge. Namathanga cash gated MKW60,000,000.00 but was charged 3 years in prison with hard labor by christian judge. So send these cash gaters to Salima kuti chilungamo chidziwike not these judges full of mercy. I hope they will get a minimum of 100 years in prison kikikikiki.

      Most of the names come from Malawi. This is a national problem and dont be simple and trivialise this. Its upon all malawians to come together and stop this culture

      1. Real deal says:

        When a northeners says we are malawians just know zamubvuta. Abwenubwenu, mwaononga dziko.

      2. Inu says:

        I totally agree. Looking at names of people and their origins will not solve the problem that we have at hand. Indeed this is a national problem and needs to be dealt with promptly and strongly. We need to deal with it regardless of ethinicty, gender, position in the society, political affiliation etc.

    2. Cashgate 1 says:

      They come from Malawi
