Malawi Govt challenges Kamlepo to give evidence on K3b vehicle purchase

Government has asked Rumphi East MP, Kamlepo Kalua to produce evidence that the Peter Mutharika administration has bought vehicles worth K3 billion for the President and other government top officials amid economic problems the country is going through.

Kamlepo: Claims to have evidence

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.

    Kamlepo has apoint,lets us wait

  2. Kadakwiza says:

    Malawians are watching very close

  3. OLLAH AMAGENTS says:

    One thing for sure is that Joyce Banda was not using the current fleet of vehicles being used by Peter. During her time, there were Hummers and other vehicles, 2012 V8 Prados part of. But if you closely check the current one, you will notice that these are latest V8 Prados, some even released in late 2014/ early 2015, there are also two motor homes, what for? therefore if the government did not procure these vehicles, then who donated this fleet of Fuel guzzlers. secondly where are the Hummers and other vehicles previously used by JB. Kamlepo has a point and I rally behind him. JAPPIE Watchout.

    propaganda at its best

  5. Sekulu says:

    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.

    Don’t forget he is stupid and full of nonsence

  8. Ozitsata says:

    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.

  9. iyawm says:

    the mad man (kamlepo kalua) is back with his outbursts

  10. WASSIE says:

    Gentle malawians.
    Kamlepo might have a point.HGe cant just dream that means pakufuka utsi pali moto.

    Government must correct their mode of running this Malawi.People are starving in villages because of expensive good.

    Let us wake up.

All those who like your comment are as imbecile as you are. Kuzolowera kudya zigumu kwanuko zoti kunja kuno kuli bread mudaiwala kalekale that’s why you mention of zigumu even on this site. Please come get some few change and buy yourself 2 loaves ana ndi makolo anu akaoneko kusintha lero. You are pathetic.

    Kamlepo dont waste our time .You could have produced those evidenceses incparliament rather than making noise on news papers.Chamba chako.

  14. Kwende says:

    Govt is crying for evidence, give it to them mighty Kalua. Make many copies and post them on different social media sites. Embarrass them till Pitala atabibidwa. Stupid government led by imbecile of president with crazy cabinet. Chi Ibu.

  15. Can of Worms says:

    Government can neither deny nor accept the purchase however the truth is what Malawians can see on the ground. The purchase was facilitated by DPP Treasure General Richie Makondi, the one behind a similar purchase and painting of “Blue Toyota Hilux” pickups and a Bus” during the 2008/9 Bingu’s campaign. No wonder he resigned unceremoniously at Toyota Malawi after misleading his boss Rosemary Mkandawire. He has also bought vast land along the Blantyre-Chikwawa road. He needs to be investigated too.

  16. george says:

    kamlepo ndi deal…..go ahead KK, expose them…..tchwe mwana tchwe…….what if he produces evidence? mutani agalu inu…..

  17. Boyd Kilembey says:

    You trust Hon Kalua as the source of FACTS? I have yet to see the man say the truth…My experience with him from days of Channel Africa was that he is a good liar.

  18. Cashgate1 says:

    I have all the transaction, just inbox me you will get it. Govt trying to fool uneducated and unreasoning Malawian. Omwewo ine ayi.

    1. Can of Worms says:

      Anyone with the transaction details (documents) please put them on the social media. We need this information, there is nothing to hear otherwise people will think that we just don’t wish the government to perform.

  19. wakummawa mario says:

    It’s gd that u pple r saying u’ve got evidence please gather those all evidences and bring them to parliament also print all chasis numbers for we readers to believe u .Otherwise we can also take u as liars.

  21. Omex70 says:

    This DPP government is the worst thing ever happened to Malawians. Jappie, be careful with your stupid reasoning. I know you are paid for defending this stupid government but one has to choose between his reputation and money.

  28. lackison says:

    You so called analyst u are an idiot, kamlepo is telling the truth, they bought two new vx for the president and 4 prados plus the new toilet vehicle, the vx which Joyce banda was using was given to first lady and there are some cars just bn packed at statehouse, all ministers are using new TX bought by DPP government supplied by makondi not Toyota Malawi, it’s only police vehicles which were supplied by Toyota Malawi. Police Prado are there to increase security, are u using those commissioners cars to improve security? Mukuuza Ana Chani?kamlepo is 100% correct even the inspector general of police is using brand new Vx , u dpp cardets accept the realities on the ground

    1. The Analyst says:

      Everyone knows that madness has no patience, as such if Kamlepo had any scintilla of evidence of what he is saying he would not hesitate to photocopy the same and post it on each and every pole found on Malawi roads. He wouldn’t spare any single pole or tree. Now to just say we have evidence and keep quiet doesn’t sound sound, to me and many other Malawians. And that is not the Kamlepo we all know.

  29. Njolinjo says:

    Stupid government! Why didn’t you respond there and then? Mumavanizira Kaye bodza loti mutiwuze? You are the worst government Malawi has ever seen.

  30. MLOMWE says:

    We have got an evidence its not only Kalua.I like people who are brave as Kamlepo .You are not alone Kamlepo we are at your back

  31. MALAWIAN says:

    KAMLEPO MIGHT BE MAD BUT PROFESSOR PETER MUTHALIKA IS TOO SLEEPY TO BE PRESIDENT. AS SLEEPY AS PETER IS, MALAWI NEED THE MAD PEOPLE LIKE KAMLEPO TO WAKE HIM UP NOW AND AGAIN. LOOK WHEN KANMLEPO SPOKE ABOUT GOVERNMENT OWN EXTRAVANGANT SPENDING AND ITS PROPAGANDA, A WHOLE LEADER OF GOVERNMENT BUSINESS IN PARLIAMET WAS IN A DEEP SLEEP IN PARLIAMENT, HE WOKE UP, FAILED TO EFFECTIVELY DEFEND GOVERNMENT AND ONLY MADE A STATEMENT THAT MADE SENSE TO HIMSELF.IF PETER MUTHALIKA WAS ALSO NOT SLEEPY HE COULD HAVE FIRED THE LEADER OF GOVERNMENT BUSINESS FOR FAILURE TO DEFEND GOVERNMENT AT AN APPROPRIATE TIME.AT ONE TIME DURING LATE BINGU ADMINISTRATION, THE OPPOSITION WAS MUCH STRONGER THAN THE CURRENT ONE, BUT GOVERNMENT HAD AN EQUALLY STRONGER AND EFFECTIVE LEADER IN THE NAME OF HENRY CHIMUTU BANDA WHO COULD STAND ON HIS FEET,”MSENA KUSAILA UYU WACHEPA NAZO, AYAMBA KUMANGOTUKWANA MU PARLIAMET”.THE LEADER OF GOVERNMENT BUSINESS POSITION NEEDS ONE WHO IS A FAST THINKER, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND WITH COOL HEAD.

    WHEN THE LIKES OF PROFESSOR CHIKAODA SPEAKES , SOME OF US APPRCIATES THAT A PROFESSOR IS SPEAKING, NOT SOME OF THESE PROFESSORS WITH FULL OF VITUMBUWA IN THEIR MOUTH.UNLESS PETER MUTHALIKA CHANGES, KAMLEPO WILL INDEED BE BACK,HIS MADNESS WILL BENEFIT ALL SLEEPY MALAWIANS WHO ARE IN MAJORITY OF COUSRSE.

  32. Bambo a mwana says:

    kamlepo or jappie who is telling the truth? Jappie a new bootlicker who wants to maximise his wealth collection while still in govt.

    U will coke back asking for our votes but be assured that u will get none even your kids and wives will vote against you. foolish jappie!!

  33. Kaboola DZ says:

    mbuzi kamlepo go to hero

  34. Patrick says:

    Shame on you Kamlepo since referendum your position has only been making noise not rulling the country,

  35. The Most Concerned says:

    Abale ndichamisala ichi….

  36. Issa says:

    The analyst is trying hard to make us believe Kamlepo is mad but at the end its clear the analyst is nothing but a big khuluva, sochimpura, complete garbage. I respect all MPS because these guys have thousands of people behind them unlike you and me who are busy writing on nyasatimes. Its not easy to be in parliament. The best thing now is to allow Kamlepo show us his madness by publishing the evidence.

    1. The Analyst says:

      If Kamplepo had any evidence Issa, he wouldn’t even allow us to allow him publish the evidence. In fact he would have taken it with him to parliament. Madness has no patience. He would have made copies of the same and distribute them to each and everyone who happens to pass by. Each and every tree and pole in our streets would not be spared either. Let us celebrate his madness but not let it cheat us, unless we are mad ourselves.

  37. Tchena tchena says:

    TSABOLA WAKALE SAWAWA. AKAMULE PO. NDIYE KUTI WINA ACHOTSEDWA TCHITO KU TOYOTA MALAWI.

  38. I like kamlepo.id know secrets.but nobody supports him

  39. kenkkk says:

    He doesn’t even need to produce any evidence. The president,
    cabinet and others have bought vehicles. Are you telling me that these thugs are using vehicles left by jb?

    And you jappie,please shut up. Being used again by your corrupt dpp friends. The vx or whatever car you were chased with pa Maliro paja, was it not a new car?

    The fact is when you thugs came to power you bought new vehicles. Unless with your thieving, you have already changed the mg plates to private ones.

    Mr Analyst wa misala anaona nkhondo. The govt bought cars, that cannot be disputed.

    1. The Analyst says:

      Yaa you maybe right Ken. The problem is his madness. It always betrays him big time.

  40. motortrader says:

    Toyota Malawi be very careful, you might lose ur supply of Toyota vehicles to government. Mind u government can order Toyotas from other dealers or they can change to Nissan or Mitsubishi.

  41. Alex Likoswe says:

    Please parliament debate on how police misuse vehicles like NAC. To to schools, you will find each police officer dropping his or kid on government vehicle, government fuel instead of chasing thieves . Go to the market, each police officer dropping a wife on Malawi police vehicle. Ware and tire , fuel costs, thieves free. Poor nyasa

    Government don’t deny everything why are you failing to to change grades for teachers who went to upgrade since 2012 please help the poor teachers who are struggling remember they don’t have any allowance

    It’s high time we did a good mental status examination b4 any rumour-mongerers make it to that honourable house and threaten national security(economic- )

  45. The Analyst says:

    I wonder why people waste their time listening to Kamlepo Kalua and others like Levi Zeleza Manda are even thanking God for his return.

    Take this simple test: you can close your eyes or not but try to forget the name Kamlepo for a moment and think about something else important e.g. chigumu chinatsala dzana chija. Then recall the name “Kamlepo.” The first thing that greets you is chaos, confusion, havoc, tumult, pandemonium . . . And this is what Kamlepo is good at and known for.

    Truth is very simple and truth be told: Kamlepo is a mad man. And he can do anything in celebration of his madness to advance any kind of lie with much courage and pomp and consistency that it somewhat starts to smell true.

    However, nobody in their right mind would believe what Kamlepo says and u MP wo anawina coz ndi wakwithu (which is very pathetic for the people he represents). I even wonder why the government is wasting time responding to Kamlepo’s slurs. Koma poti ndi Jappi mhango, its understandable. Only a mad man entertains or greets or smiles at a fellow mad man in the streets. Observe!
