Mutharika’s Trust stick to guns:  No refund to NAC

Beautify Malawi Trust (BEAM) of First Lady Getrude Mutharika has said they are not going to refund K5 million irregularly taken out of National Aids Commission (NAC) despite “well-wishers” rasing the case for refund following public pressure.

Kumbweza Banda: The refund is neither here nor there

Magalasi: No refund

Beam  vice Chairperson, Dr Collins Magalasi on told Nyasa Times on Tuesday that  position remains the same that the organisation never received any money from NAC in form of a grant and would not pay back.

Earlier, Beam “well-wishers” led by Barnet Chinsinga said they raised K5 million cash to pay back to NAC to prevent mass protests being organised by the civil society on January 14, 2015.

But Magalasi said he was even surprised to receive a telephone call inviting Mutharika’s Trust to attend a function at Pacific Hotel where the cash was being shown to reporters.

“I was very surprised because even the First Lady do not know the well wishers. Even me I have never met even one before. I learnt from Nyasa Times about this person called Chinsinga,” said Magalasi.

Magalasi said those well wishers did not follow the normal procedure, saying they were supposed to write Beamofficially and then hear from what they would have said.

Earlier in the day NAC board chair  Mara Kumbweza Banda faulted the way the whole issue has been handled.

Kumbweza said NAC did not receive any formal prior communication on the matter to seek their position if the money can be refunded or not.

“You are saying where is the  ceremony taking place and who are presiding over the ceremony? I understand the NAC office is closed for festivities till January 5 next year, ” said Kumbweza.

Beam Trust and Mulhako wa Alhomwe got some money from NAC to fund activities that have nothing to do with the fight against HIV and Aids. The National Investigations Bureau (NIB) also asked NAC for the funding but was not given.

  16. andrew says:

    How can the Beam still denie to have taken money from nac, yet everybody knows they did.These people are crooks and they know they are there only to destroy Malawi like their late leader.How can they use money meant for patients and give to mulakho? By the way, what is this mulako, a pressure group or a group of murderers? Can somebody educate me on this please!

  17. dadaboma says:

    Guys, this DPP govt is wasting our time. We need a govt that can be trusted and work for the people for development and prosperity. Those who voted for DPP have done Malawi a huge inconvenience. Let’s go to the streets now to change this govt. We’ll not move even an inch forward in terms of development. What is all this drama for? To begin with,
    It is true Muthalika’s BEAM trust stole money by extortion from NAC
    It is true that Muthalika’s Mulhako wa aLomwe stole money from NAC
    It is true that Malawians have demanded refund of the money to NAC
    It is true that the Muthalikas have refused to refund the money to NAC
    However, it is true that the Muthalikas are guilty-conscious of their evil act
    It is also true that the Muthalikas devised a way of refunding the money without conceding the guilt and without personally appearing in the refund equation
    So the Muthalikas gave the money to staged well-wishers to refund the money for them
    But NAC refused to concede wrong-doing by receiving back the money
    That’s why it’s true that NAC refused to receive back the “well-wishers'” money
    It is at this point that the deal went sour
    That’s why the Muthalikas are now distancing themselves from their staged “well-wisher”
    It is not true that there were real well-wishers raising the money for the Muthalikas but staged ones
    It is not true that the Muthalikas do not know the staged “well-wishers”
    That’s why it’s not rue that the Muthalikas can be trusted with leadership of the country
    That’s why it is not true that the Muthalikas can steer Malawi towards prosperity
    And it’s not true either that the Muthalikas won the elections anyway

  27. lilian says:

    If Beam didn’t know why don’t you report this Chinsinga for impersonation?mukunama you knew and you have seen it will be similar to accepting theft

  29. Malawi stinks. Malawi has dead people and no wonder we are poor. Bad things and behaviour start from the top to the bottom.

  30. Barnet Chinsinga is a new crook on the block. He is a DPP Lutepo. Lutepo was a well wisher who bought PP 22 vehicles. It’s the same old song with a different beat.

  35. Think Tank says:

    Anthuni,a Magalasi ndi anzawo are doing a face-saver. As always with DPP,they act first and then begin to think. I dont think Chinsinga is a dunderhead to just wake up,organise some funds,then do a public relation act without Aunt Getu and company knowing. They knew,encouraged him and thanked. It is only when people started talking of ” she has admitted theft” that is when they woke up and do a damage control.

    1. D says:

      Actually, I would not be surprised to learn that the money came from Aunt Getu herself.

  36. chefourpence says:

    well wishers are a JB creation for cashgate funds…. It was surprising….

  37. M'bobodo says:

  38. Kenkkk says:

    To you all beam and nac corrupt people and thieves, it is your stubbornness, foolish pride and fear of losing face that is actually criminalising you and finding yourselves guilty of stealing and misusing nac money.

    If you can’t see that what you did was wrong, then God forbid and you dpp people are therefore actually not fit to rule this country!!

    If you didn’t want to refund nac money, then why don’t you stop your well wishers from raising the K5m which they want to replace the nac money you stole?

    The well wishers seem to be more intelligent than yourselves, they clearly see that you have committed a heinous crime for thieving and misusing nac money. They clearly see that this money need to be returned but unashamedly you think otherwise. Please stop your well wishers then!!! And please stop fooling us!! These dpp people are really disgraceful and personally really wonder how people can support such a party. It is absolutely corrupt to the core.

    PALIBE NKHANI APA, BOLA NDALAMAZO MWABWEZA. KAyA NDALAMA ZACHOKERA KUTI, it’s none of our business.

  43. DIE HARD says:

    If Chinsinga has nothing to do with the money he would rather donate it to me because I dont any reason why they should return the money to NAC on behalf of BEAM and BEAN has no business returning money to NAC on behalf of NAC because the money was used by NAC for tables and adverts. Those CSO leaders calling for refund are people who found themselves jobless after change of government and they are using this issue to get recognition and be given something or employed

    1. shame shame says:

      Ha ha ha for tables? You people think that we are all dunderheads like you eti? A table was costing K300000 and it means NAC paid for 10 tables. NAC tells us other tables were taken by their stakeholders. Can they tell us the stakeholders in question? They can’t because the so called stakeholders must have been DPP loyalists. Again the food served at that function was bought using tax payers money. In fact we need a law prohibiting use of state House funds for fundraising activities by any sitting President.
