Kamlepo: Claims to have evidence

Kamlepo alleged in parliament on Monday that the government bought 14 vehicles for State House, two for vice president, 10 for PSs and 30 for other government officials when the government cannot afford to hire doctors and other health workers and public health services have virtually collapsed so too other public services as the economy takes unprecedented downward dip.

But minister of Information Jappie Mhango said the statement by Kalua in Parliament was “mere propaganda” as government has not procured any vehicles and asked the MP to produce evidence.

“The government only purchased police vehicles which are critical for the country’s security, to fight crime,” he said.

Kalua in his contribution to the State Opening of Parliament Address made by President Peter Mutharika on Friday, accused the government of turning a blind eye to its own extravagance through the purchase of vehicles he claimed were worth K4 billion ($7,142,857).

He claimed that the Executive had spent K650 million to buy top-of-the-range Toyota Prado VX models for the presidential convoy and four Toyota Landcruiser V8 models for the Vice-President.

Kalua also alleged that the Executive bought 10 Toyota Prados for senior officials and 30 vehicles of a similar make for principal secretaries in government.

“ If they want evidence, I have it including chassis numbers,” Kalua said.

My fellow Malawians,

Is the Government saying it did not by the vehicles or it bought the vehicles, destroyed the evidence and now wants somebody to produce it?

Malawians, let us wait for the Mutharika vs Mtata case and the rest will be history.

We might be witnessing a scenario whereby one has just managed to swallow the the last crystal of sugar he stole and claims let the accusers reproduce the sugar he or she is said to have stolen.

Hahaha Kamlepo wanena. All what is remaining is for Government to bring evidence against what Kamlepo has alleged. Show us the vehicles the said officers are using . And we shall believe you. Kamlepo has no platform like you , you have your DPPBC which you can use to showcase all the vehicles currently being used.
