Menyani: To quiz many officials

The auditor general’s report shows the money went missing from 2009 to 2014 spanning two presidential administrations of late Bingu wa Mutharika and Joyce Banda.

Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee Alekeni Menyani confirmed that on Tuesday, PAC met the Auditor General who answered a dozen questions from the lawmakers.

Malawi is country reeling from harsh economic turmoil following the withdrawal of budgetary support from traditional donors after billions of money were stolen in what is now known as cashgate.

Previous reports indicated that former president Bingu wa Mutharika was linked to K92 billion theft of public money but the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) denies this.

Menyani said his committee will summon different high ranking officials in order to get the truth on the matter.

The office of the auditor general said in last parliament that the report was just forensic, money amounting up to K572 billion may not have been stolen after all, it may just have been misplacement of relevant documents supporting payments.

    We also wanted to knw why the DPP administrations always brings/ starts things like the new high charging system at Road Traffic, the issue of new no plates, abolishing of JC certificates without parliament’s adoption?

  15. Mzee says:

    Foolish people 577 billion couldnt have been stolen. Yes people still but not that amount. By the way carlsberg lost 5 billion and it was stolen by an accountant. This shows that theft is never industry specific

  16. Paul Vida says:

    Stupid DPP government all they know is stealing and wasting goverment resources.

  17. Dwambazi says:

    PAC is also a joke, just like the Budget you will be given bribes and nothing will happen to the investigation.
