Timpuza Mwansambo: He was drawing two salaries

Sources said the President aka APM was very angry when he got information that Mwansambo was drawing two salaries from his former employer MBC and State House where he was on ‘secondment’.

Mwansambo has been drawing the two salaries for the past 8 months and never cared to ask accounts people why his bank account was ‘swelling’ after the end of every month.

The President has also fired an accountant at State House who is said to have helped Mwansambo draw the salaries.

“This issue was first brought to the attention of Director General of State Residences Peter Mukhitho a few months ago but since Mukhitho likes the boy, he sat on the issue,” said our sources.

“But somehow someone managed to bring this to the attention of the President and he was very angry and told Mukhitho that he does not want to see Timpuza at State House again,” said the source.

Timpuza did not travel with the press team to Blantyre where the President presided over the passing out of 732 prisoner warder recruits at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday and also visited some buildings in Blantyre and Limbe on Monday.

Mwansambo who was viewed as a blue eyed boy for late President Bingu Mutharika was ‘abandoned’ in Mzuzu after Joyce Banda took the reigns of power in 2012 following the demise of Bingu.

He ‘resurrected’ last year following Peter Mutharika’s win in the 2014 tripartite elections when he was appointed Deputy Press Secretary for President Mutharika.
