ACB recorded statement s from Mrs Mphwiyo and appeared before Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate Paul Chiotcha where she was formally charged with money laundering and forgery.

She denies any wrong doing.

Her lawyer, Alemekezeke Mando managed to secure bail for her.

Prosecution through lawyer Imran Said told the court that the accused used a fake trust, Good Deeds Trust for siphoning government money.

It is alleged that using the stolen money, Mphwiyo bought a house from James Kayandula at K50 million and that on May 7, she forged a government stamp used for government revenues and paid Good Deeds Trust which was not dully registered.

On bail conditions, she has to pay K200 000 surety, report to ACB every fortnight and
surrender all her travelling documents.

Mphwiyo, whose shooting at the gate of his house in Lilongwe’s Area 43 residential estate on the night of September 13 2013 exposed the free-for-all plunder of public resources, was arrested on Saturday for money laundering, theft and conspiracy to defeat the course of justice whereas his wife has been informally charged with theft and money laundering.

    The only way we can stop this nonsense and genocidal acts is to hang all who steal government money in excess of 500 million Kwacha! Then they will be afraid, otherwise right now they will hire top notch lawyers adept at dilatory tactics who will drag the cases until a a fvorable political environment presents itself and charges wil be miraculously dropped! Its us the citizens who are suffering not them politicians and their appointees! Its time we stopped this nonsense!

    Number 2 you are a donkey who told you that you can only build a good house if you are a millionaire or as assumed by many stupid Malawians if you not a public servant? You only need commitment and focus not getting drunk and sleeping around. Have you not wondered why drivers have houses when seniors dont have. Musatinyanse apa.
