New leads on K577bn DPP-era cashgate, says Kamlepo: ‘Malawi Parliament needs more time to peruse report’

Malawi Parliament says it has found new leads in the K577 billion cashgate during the Bingu wa Mutharika reign and this will delay the presentation of the report in the National Assembly.

Kamlepo Kalua: There is more information on the plunder

Kamlepo Kalua: There is more information on the plunder

Deputy chairperson of Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Kamlepo Kalua said in an interview on Tuesday that new leads are pointing to misuse of public funds amounting to K1 trillion.

“Our report to parliament plenary will delay, we are following up these new leads. A lot of money has been plundered by the DPP (Democratic Progressive Party) government,” he said.

He said PAC now needs more time to scrutinize the report.

“For sure this has exceed the K577 billion and we are looking at it very carefully,” he said.

This will be the second time the report has been delayed to be presented in the House as parliament is expected to make recommendations on how to recover the money.

Kalua said one week was not enough to look into the whole report, saying the committee needed at least two weeks.

The issue has caused controversy after unknown thugs broke into the Germany embassy in Lilongwe and stole a computer that stole data regarding some information on the plunder of the public resources by alleged Bingu wa Mutharika and his cronies.

Police have not made any arrests to the theft of the computer although fingers point to intelligence officers of the National Intelligence Bureau.

Some parliamentarians say they will recommend that property of the former head of state be auctioned off to recover the public money, a move that will face stiff resistance from Peter Mutharika administration.

Thats what we need to develop in Malawi, we need ACCOUNTABILITY! if all thieves, regardless of their positions, religious or tribal affiliations, were made accountable and put behind bars(even posthumously), then Malawi will develop. But if we let these unpatriotic , selfish and egoccentric mafioso masquerading as political leaders go off the hook , then we should forget about development. Our people will continue to beg and die of hunger and disease just because we can not hold the mafia to account! Shame!!

Well said Distinguished Malawian, I. salute you. Just to add on top of that Bingu’s first term was full of development bcoz he was under heavy scrutiny from the rhen formidable opposition. Again that period, 2005, Malawi qualified for debt cancellation. Highly Indebted Poor Country (HIPC). What happened was that the funds meant to service the loans was redirected to infrastructure development under HIPC account. The donors were all eyes on that money and Bingu couldn’t play with it. He was powerless to dictate. However, soon after giving him a victory, he grew wings mpaka kugula Jet using our tax… Read more »

2- Kodi ndalama za zaka ziwiri mu thawi ya pp zinapangidwila chiyani ? Popeza palibe chitukuko chilichose chomwe anachita.
Khani iyi ndi yosabvuta, chifukwa olo titati tiyambe kuwelengetsa tchito zomwe anthuwa apanga,chilungamo chiwoneka.
