Malawi court orders govt to possess six ‘cashgate’ buses

The High Court in Lilongwe has ordered the government to take possession of six buses which have been parked at the police headquarters for close to two years now.

Judge Fiona Mwale’s judgment on Wednesday means the government can sell off the buses or use for other purposes.

High Court spokesperson Mlenga Mvula said the court had not made a ruling on what the authorities  should do with the buses following the ruling, saying it will be up to the government to make a determination.

The buses were confiscated from cash-gate convict Leonard Kalonga following revelations that he amassed huge sums of public money at Capital Hill forming the K30 billion infamously known as cash-gate.

Mvula said the cash-gate cases will not be affected following the decision by the court to dispose off the buses, saying the judge looked into the matter critically before making the judgment.

The buses were just purchased from abroad when they were confiscated and parked at the national police headquarters in Lilongwe since 2014.

Please can you investigate you could be putting our lives at risk.

Where is the cash obtained from cashgaters going. If the government decides to sell the buses my second worry is whether the sale will be transparent and where will the cash go. What is happening to those loans after sale of MSB The malawi citizenry deserves information guys.
