Minister Kasaila says Chakwera should be probed on his mansion: Opposition MPs on financial crimes

Minister of Foreign Affairs and ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) publicity secretary Francis Kasaila has called for investigations into president of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Lazarus Chakwera on the construction of his personal mansion in Lilongwe and other opposition lawmakers, saying they may be involved in financial crimes.

Kasaila : Desperate politicans calling for government to fall

Chakwera mansion under construction

Chakwera’s mansion sits on a 5-acre land in an exclusive suburb of Area 6 in Lilongwe.

“The mansion which Chakwera is constructing is worth K300 million,” said Kasaila.

Speaking on Capital FM Straight Talk programme monitored by Nyasa Times on Nkhani Digest YouTube channel, Kasaila said Chakwera should be also be investigated on the source of his money.

“We hope that the people will be fair with everybody,” said Kasaila.

According to sources who took pictures from all angles, the mansion has close to 15 rooms excluding spaces for kitchens, bathrooms and storerooms. It also has got 6 staff houses.

The politician-cum-pastor has managed to construct the mansion all in a space of one year which Kasaila said raises more eyebrows on his dealings.

Kasaila condemned the opposition for generalising that the government is blended with all thieves, saying some opposition lawmakers have questionable obscene worth.

“We have seen MPs from opposition buying expensive cars, other building mansions,” pointed out Kasaila.

“All of us are in government including the opposition,” said Kasaila, arguing that the opposition also are paid by government the same as ministers.

“We should also question how are they using those resources, it could be they are abusing those resources,” said Kasaila.

He branded opposition members calling for government to resign as “desperate politicians.”

But party administrative secretary Portipher Chidaya said MCP detractors “are all out fishing on anything that could dent Chakwera’s image,” saying “unfortunately they will not succeed.”

    a Kasaila, Kanyumba kameneka kangakwane 300 million? hahahahaha I see a lot of panic on the government side. Kwavuta. madzi achita katondo. kkkkkkkkkkkk

  5. Santana and Kasaila wake are devils kids, santana backs up everything for dpp, even dpp atalamulira a Kanyimbi santana adzayiyikira kumbuyo. Vomerezani nthawi yanu yatha, you are thieves, cowards, devils agents, liers, hypocrites. You learned nothing on the dealth of your infamous Mose walero. This is your punishment time, zikada zada, zakufulatirani, panopa anthu awona, iwe Santana talked alot of nonsense in backing up Chaponda and today you are still talking nonsense, DO YOU HAVE BRAIN SANTANA? Mulungu siosewera naye and He is not DPP, MCP OR PP. GOD IS GOD AND WILL BE GOD. DPP NEVER CREATED A HUMAN BEING SO THAT IT SHOULD TORTURE. LACHIFORTY LIMAKWANA INU LAKUKWANIRANI NO REVERSE.

  6. The Partriot says:

    This reminds me of Chapondas ” North – South antagonism” excuse! When Chaponda got desperate after being cornered he wondered why Goodall was not being investigated?
    Now Mr Kasaila, only a few years ago when the cashagate was uncovered by JB , the DPP was in opposition and DPP officials went to town accusing the PP government of being thieves! Inuyo mmenemo muli otsutsa, kumaaoneka ngati angelo!
    Today its your turn, within two years some DPP ministers have become filthy rich mpaka kugwiritsa ntchito ma dollars ngati ma pillow!
    Common sense will tell every articulate Malawian that the opposition is not entrusted with the government purse! Okuba ndinuyo ndi anzanu mu cabinet ya Boma! Chakwera alibe mphamvu yokuba ndalama zathu, koma inuyo a DPP!!

  7. Fwangalubiro says:

    Mr Kutsaila indirectly accepting that the ministers are stealing he has evidence and trying to divert attention

  8. santana says:

    If Chakwera did not steal government money, where then can he dip his fingers if not the only other institution which is the church? Was the church money not for people? Did he not leave God’s work after stealing from the flock? So the anger of God is on him and as a punishment on this mother earth Chakwera will never be up but expect him to be ever Chatsika and will be going down in every activity. God will not give a chance to this man whatever the case. MCP is just wasting time if it thinks the party can make it through this runaway pastor. He is a curse in the sight of God. Why should other candidates get votes from his district while he can not get one from his southern counter-part?

  9. santana says:

    Mr Changes, which boma has fallen? Which one has replaced the fallen boma? Amenewa ndiye maloto a chumba. I would like contributors to this page tell the readers which govt can ably replace the current one. Which party shows that it can do people’s needs when given a chance? We should not talk as an opposition group because every party has its own manifesto and will go solo in the next elections. Therefore when you say DPP will fall tell us the party which will make it in replacing the DPP. Convince us what makes you think that party is loved by Malawians in all regions. The only party which came closer to DPP was the MCP. But that was 2014. The assessment shows that MCP is losing popularity on daily basis. The party failed in the 2014 elections because it had a zero support from other regions. Unfortunately the party has done nothing to solve this problem. How then can it dream of winning the 2019 votes? Can Chakwera mention any district in the south where he has hope of winning 30 percent to his party? It is him who is losing support to other parties especially to DPP. Everyone can see this. In any democracy if people are coming closer to elections the winning party is clearly seen by people and it becomes encouraged when people talk about it as we go towards elections. Which side of Malawi talk about MCP if not only some parts of the central region? Ntcheu is in the centre but why is it not MCP affliated? MCP should remove itself from the winning parties in the 2019 elections. It has done nothing which can give hope to its supporters that it can make it in 2019.

    A Kasaila, ife timaona ngati mudapita ku Sukulu. Chakwera samapita pa Capital Hill koma inuyo. Eee nonsenu ndunena nonsenu Nduna ndinu mbava. Ngati sindinu mbava bwanji simukulimbikitsa za kulemela kwa Nankhumwa. President, Mbava; DPP Mbava; Nduna zonse Mbava.

    Ngati Chakwera ndi mbava koma sanatibere ife zamisonkho yathu. Inutu mumatibera direct ndipo mumafuna kuti ife tizikuomberani mmanja kuti mwatiberadi. Isaa, Moya!

  12. popapo says:

    Malawians what Hon Kutsaila is claiming should not be thrown out completely, these Politicians dine together behind the curtains. Dr Chaponda was surprised that Godall Gondwe is not being investigated, he also mentioned of Tractor-gate swindlers who are going around freely. Since the tide has started with Dr Chaponda, as a country we have a chance to pursue all these people until proven not guilty. Journalist please help us investigate these people they have started pointing fingers on each other.

  13. Muhapana says:

  15. Nachipanti says:

    The house of DPP is indeed on Fire… Chaponda said it and am not surprised the remarks from the Minister. Let them institute a probe and lets see whether they will find anything. Mbava zasowa mtengo ogwira….Paja nyani amadziwa kuti afa mtengo ukayamba kuterera…. Muisova a ngwenyenthe inu.

  16. Dzuwalinyenga says:

    Kasaila Kasaila, don’t take Malawians for a ride why are making a fool of yourself trying to divert the really issues affecting Malawians How many YEARS are university students taking to graduate instead of normal 4 years ? How many people are dying in hospitals due to lack of drugs ? YET MINISTERS ARE ENRICHING THEMSELVES WITHOUT BEING INVESTIGATED ? Leave Chakwera aside lets tell the nation the truth about airport face lift ,Army gate ,TEVETA, Fisp , Malawians need to be told the Truth .REMINDER KUSAILA TIME IS TICKING IT IS NOT GOING BACK JUST AMEND YOUR LEAKS TO KEEP THE SHELTER FOR LONG ,

  17. Kalua says:

    300 million mansion imeneyo are u really serious? you think Malawians are fools Mr Kasaila, the Dpp led government has failed to develop Malawi. Too corrupt, frequent blackouts, no increment for civil servants and lack of drugs in public hospitals.

  18. Ndagha says:

    Boma la a lomwe lakuba ili

  19. Zuze says:

    Chakwera akukanika kumaliza kumananga nyumba. Mupezapo chiyani.

  20. Chimanga says:

    Is chakwera a custodian of any public resources? If so as public we should be concerned. If not, Mbuya Kasaila just shut up. Dont derail us from issues that affect our taxes. Those of you in government are the custodians of our taxes not chakwela who is in opposition

  21. Changes says:

    Chamba basi chakwera’s mansion shoildnt a thing to back your corrupt practices…boma lagwa kale iri and we are waiting for its burrial ! Osakamba za ena…apa tiyambe Zoba bingu then mwaba inuzi before chakwera! Osamabweretsa nkhani zina before akubanu kumangudwa apa. musatibowepo!

  22. Dpp is under fire and it will be under fire, BLACKOUTS, HIGH INFLATION, SALARIES PAYMENT FAILURE, etc are all because of MCP? You will probe mcp because of blackouts? ZAKUKANIKANI ZAKUKANIKANI, INGOVOMEREZANI, NDINU AKUBA NDINU AKUBA BASI, DPP IS BEING PUNISHED BY NATURAL JUSTICE AND MORE PUNISHMENT IS YET TO COME JUST PRAY HARD THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE ANOTHER CARDIAC ARREST.

  23. youna says:

    Uku ndi kuvomereza kuti boma la DiPhiPhi ndi lakuba. Wanzeru akutha kuona through Kasaila’s statements. Mulungu wathu sagona ndipo akuvumbulutsa nyasi zonse zimemene andale akhala akuchita muno mudziko lathuli. Ambuye sachedwa ndipo safulumira.

  24. Ade says:

    is this what you call a mansion? DPP yatha ma plan, you thought you were a clean party but now we have seen how evil DPP is mpaka kuotcha office.

    1. Baba Maduapera says:

      This Kasaila is very stupid. Amatichititsa manyazi ife asena. And some of us doubt if he is really a sena because senas cant be bootlickers. Check all around and you will confirm this. Senas vehemently and relentlessly fight for integrity and honesty always. It is not the case with this stupid, foolish Poly graduate!! We wonder why he supports or serves stupid, foolish ideas and interests… These are not virtues of authentic senas.. Hon. Joseph Chidanti-Malunga is a real, genuine Sena. He has Sena values in his blood..
