Nonsense, nonsense, nosense! MP from the north making crazy allegations – Malawi President Mutharika says ‘tired of lies’

Malawian President Peter Mutharika on Monday lashed out at opposition Peoples Party (PP) Rumphi east MP Kamlepo Kalua, saying he is politicsl rubble rouser who makes  “crazy allegations.”

Mutharika opening the factory in Salima and then lashed out on cashgate claims against his ministers

Mutharika said in Salima on Monday when he officially opened Salima Sugar Factory that he is “tired” with “irresponsible lies” peddled against his government.

He denied accusations made by Kalua that President Mutharika has a forensic audit report which mentions seven ministers implicated in the Cashgate plunder of the national coffers.

“There has been a story in the paper that somehow that there some seven ministers who were involved in the so called K577 billions scam which  turned to be K236 billion, which  96 percent that happened during the PP government and not during the time of  DPP,” said Mutharika.

But opposition lawmakers claim the audit names serving cabinet ministers for participating in contract inflation and procurement fraud during the late President Bingu wa Mutharika’s time in office.

LISTEN TO PRESIDENT MUTHARIKA HERE:

The President strongly denied that he has the names of the cashgate suspects.

“I do not have the names,” stressed Mutharika.

The Malawi leader said he even sent the chief secretary George Mkondiwa to the auditor general Stevenson Kumphasa to get the names of the cabinet ministers named in the report but came empty handed.

Mutharika also rejected accusations that he is showing diminishing zeal for fraud prosecutions, which have severely dented the country’s reputation and cost it hundreds of millions of dollars in budget support funds.

“ That’s completely nonsense. I am saying it again, nosense, nonsense, nonsense.I am not hiding anybody. I don’t have the names,” said Mutharika.

He continued: “If this MP in the north, who is always making crazy allegations about anything else , if this MP  has names [let him bring them to me.

“I am tired of irresponsible lies by some irresponsible politician.”

Mutharika said the opposition lawmaker is “daft”, hitting back after Kalua called him “liar” for saying he has no names.

It’s on the internet [Nyasa Times reported] that I am a liar that am hiding  ministers because they are my friends, my cronies.

“I want to tell him to come to State House within 24 hours to give me the names or else he must shut up forever,” said Mutharika.

Major frauds started under Bingu were of a different nature to the Cashgate type that was instituted during President Joyce Banda’s reign. Under Bingu they were of the more typical over-invoicing and over-pricing variety.

Preliminary audits of government finances between 2009 and 2014, carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and financed by the German government, indicate that at least K577 bn. ($807 mn.) could not be accounted for.

Later, the estimated loss was reduced to K236 bn. ($330 mn.), still a gigantic figure for such a small country, about one third of the government’s annual budget.

PP legislators, led by Mzimba West MP Harry Mkandawire and Kalua, led calls  for the names of all suspects to be made public.

In parliament, Mkandawire  mentioned Agriculture Minister George Chaponda to have been named in the report.

Chaponda denied any involvement.

    Be Humane,all of us have individual names and you call someone by his name and not tribe.Nobody says that you are not a proud Chewa,but what disturbs me is that why refer people from the north by their tribal names?As you are proud of being a Chewa so be it,but you have personal names like the hated Tumbukas.Malawi is independent today because of the Tumbukas gargantuan contributions believe it or not,history will prevail one day.MAY GOD GIVE YOU PEOPLE SOME LIGHT TO SEE REALITY!!!!

  4. The Patriot says:

    The Mutharikas and the North! What did the North do to you? You mean you could not talk about Kamlepo without mentioning where he comes from?
    But this President from the Lhomwe belt,…eh koma mwatienjeza!
    For Kamlepo…you are a true hero….a patriot, hardworker and a man of integrity! Between Kamlepo and the President from the Lhomwe belt…Kamlepo is a better man!
    Shut up for ever….muyelekeze kupanga zimenezo dziko lake liti? We fought for this democracy in 1994…inuyo muli kuti? Osangoyamika kuti Muluzi gave the torch to your late brother and inuyo munapezanso mwai? Kupanda Muluzi the Mutharikas were nothing!!!
    Please Mr President from the South, dont take us for fools we know you are hiding the names!! And we will not shut up until the names are publicized!!!And yes, am also from the NORTH!!!!!

  5. Matako says:

    Liar liar pants on fire! Muthalika has to be the dumbest president our country has ever had. Who does he think he is talking to? All Malawians know he is the biggest thief of all time. Yes he is shielding his corrupt ministers and please old tooth less man do not try to fool Malawians. You have spearheaded corruption in this country that is the reason why you have done absolutely nothing against it other than the usual lip service which you have used to hood wink Malawians. Fish rots from the head you are that rotten fish Mr president. You are not only a shame to our country but rather a disgrace to all things Malawian. This is nit Malawi we expected to see after we allowed you to cheat your way to the high office. You have failed us through your talk but failed to walk the talk. The best thing you can ever give us Mr president is for you to step down. You have proved time and again that you are indeed a puppet president as Ben and his cadre continue to loot our resources with impunity . All this is taking place during your watch and don’t continue lying to us that you do not know because you do know what is going on. As one of the beneficiaries you have chosen to look the other way. What a shame!

    WE DO NOT HAVE A SERIOUS PRESIDENT IN PETER MUTHALIKA.IT IS GOOD THAT WE HAVE THIS MP FROM THE NORTH,KAMLEPO,HIS ACTIONS ALONE HAVE MADE PETER MUTHALIKA SHOW HOW WEAK AND UNRELIABLE HE IS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION.PETER MUTHALIKA BUNCH OF ADVISORS ON THIS ISSUE MUST BE VERY USELESS ONES.DONORS HAVE BEEN SITTING ON THE WALL BECAUSE RIGHT FROM DAY ONE THEY HAD QUESTIONS OVER THE INTEGRITY OF THIS PRESIDENT FROM THYOLO, BROTHER TO LATE BINGU WHOSE COSMETIC ANT CORRUPTION DRIVE WAS VERY STRONG ONLY IN HIS EARLY YEARS OF 2004,2005,2006.BUT WHEN THE WORK OF HIS HANDS FOCUSED ON ACCUMULATING MK61 BILLION WEALTH IN 8 YEARS, HE OBVIOUSLY BECAME SILENT.UNFORTUNATELY, THIS KID BROTHER TO BINGU WANTS TO CONTINUE FROM WHERE LATE BINGU STOPPED. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THAT UNTIL ANOTHER DIVINE INTERVENTION COME ON THE WAY.

  7. Jeremiah Tasosa says:

    When the 2013 Cashgate saga was unveiled, the Opposition especially my Party the DPP and MCP celebrated when the names were mentioned and aired by Galaxy FM. No one was arrested for naming the companies and the names behind those companies. Why is it difficult today to have another radio station or the same Galaxy fm to air and shame the names behind K236 billion Cash gate??? I can’t understand it. Where is Gerald Viola? Where is Sylvester Namiwa? Where is Phillip Kamangira?? They are quiet. This country does not have real patriots. I am DPP yes, so what? I love my Country and DPP comes second to me.

  8. Bubu Leze says:

    I don’t see the truth in the president’s speech that he has no report of any kind concerning cashgate. If the President himself is being reported that Dr. Kabwila was sending and receiving whatsapp message at such time; What about the Cashgate report itself. The report that attracts a lot of stakeholders. I am 96% percent doubtful if our president is saying the truth in that statement. The Almighty God only knows the truth of the matter. What we should know is that Kakawuluka kamayembekezeleka kutela, already sung by Lucius Banda.

    Ambuye akumwamba, May you bring things at open if either Kamlepo is a liar or the President himself. Malawians want to know the truth. So painful their taxes to be wafted simply like that

  9. santana says:

    Now assess all what is written against APM and see if there is anything which can sway his supporters against him. You will agree with me that it is just a waste of time if people think these insults in the media can move APM’s support from him. A thief does not give evidence against himself. You say APM’s children stole the money and you expect him to be on top of the mountain just to say his children stole the money. This is stupidity at its best! There is something Kamlepo is fearing in disclosing the names. Don’t forget he knows he is dealing with men of the law and he knows the consequences of doing it carelessly. Don’t think Kamlepo is stupid. He knows why the fear. Enanu mukungobwetuka ndi zolemba zanu iyeyo wangokusiirani nkhani iye ali phee akudziwa kuti akuopa chiani. Don’t talk of 2019 coz every evidence is there that no party will defeat the DPP. If any has a party in mind let him mention it so that we assess it. MCP? My God! What else? Just write your nonsense in the media but DPP supporters are still intact and are waiting for the big show in 2019.

    chifukwa chani anthu akumpoto mumdana ndikutchulani kuti mtumbuka? Ahhhh nanga mumachokera kuti if not ku North? Mchewa, Mngoni or Mlowe will never feel offended with that. What is wrong with Atumbuka inu? Kuterokonso ndakulakwirani kukutchulani kuti a Tumbuka pamenepa? Nanga mukufua tidzinena kuti chani? Why then do we have tribes in Malawi? So that we identify ourselves. I am Pround to be called Mchewa

    1. Mzala says:

      You are daft. Tumbukas are from Rumphi, not the whole northern region. I am a Ngoni from Mzimba. Siyanyanyihla mfwetu. Igwala wena.

  11. Scandinavia says:

    In his dreams the president thinks we are all daft. That we don’t read between lines. That we are happy seeing his idiotic ministers swindling us in broad day light. I have one warning shot for Sir, time is the greatest teacher. You mess up now and you will pa dearly in future. It could be tomorrow or next year or in 2019 or indeed in 2024. We are watching you with the big brothers eye.

  12. Fearson Kadala says:

    This DPP government is running scared. Mr. president, this is not rocket science; you as head of state has the mandate to direct the Auditor General and the Attorney General in the interest of national unity and preserving the integrity of your already weak office, to release the so called report in its entire state. The mere fact that you and your minister of finance along with both AGs are always tripping over your own statements shows us that your government has a lot to hide but unfortunately you have not done your homework thoroughly.
    Release those names and maybe, just maybe, we can start trusting you again. Thus far you have not proven to be a man of your word.
    So far all the indecisiveness coming from state house indeed confirms that the steering wheel is not in your hands Peter, surely these are the machinations of a novice such as Ben Phiri.
    Prove to the nation that you, Peter are not Ben’s puppet, as most of us suspect, by just this once standing by your own decision: release those name! Make that order now!

  13. Trendex says:

    THE MALAWI PRESIDENT IS COMPLETELY OUT OF ORDER BY CALLING KALUA A ‘NORTHERNER’. THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THAT THE PRESIDENT IS A RACIST. IT SHOULD START WITH HIMSELF TO BE CRAZY BY SHIELDING THE SEVEN MPs UNDER HIS ARMPIT. HE MUST BE CRAZY, I REPEAT, CRAZY AND STUPID. AFTER ALL WE DON’T HAVE A PRESIDENT IN MALAWI. WE HAVE MID-NIGHT SIX LEADING MALAWI ILLEGALLY. ONCE AGAIN, THE PRESIDENT IS CRAZY AND STUPID BY LABELING PEOPLE FROM THE REGIONS WHERE THEY ARE COMING FROM. CRAZAYYYYYYY, STUPIDDDDDDDD.

    “SHUT UP FOREVER” Hon Kalua please be careful. your life is in Danger, SHUT UP FOREVER for these THUGS means they will Terminate you.

  15. zondiwe says:

    Hon Kamlepo is fighting for justice, not because he is from the North, but because fighting for justice is the right thing to do. The President is trying to paint all the Northerners as bad people by saying ‘the MP from the North.’ Why not say Hon Kamlepo Kaluwa? Everybody knows Kamlepo. He is ‘Chwee Mwana Chweee!!!!’. Kamlepo can never be intimidated. Ask Kamuzu Banda.

  16. Achimidzimidzi says:

    My humble request to our state president, His Excellency Professor, Arthur Pete Mutharika is that the auditor general should release the names and prosecute the people involved. Why all this silence yet the Joyce Banda culprits were immediately disclosed and arrested.

    After all, the money which was stolen, was definitely my tax contribution and therefore I have got every right to demand transparency and justice. Actually the bottom line is we have thirteen names who were involved.

  17. bob says:

    I’m a proud Lomwe..But a Malawian first…… This is issue is not a tribal matter.. Or is it a party issues… Simply put this is a Malawian issue.. Is our president.. (not the person but the office) trying to tell me and the whole of Malawi that the office has had no access to these files… And neither has it bothered to query kuti anthu a Malawi akuti bwanji. Your telling me the whole president should stand on the podium and tell Malawians .. Kuti he doesn’t have the names..basi… And we as malawians are happy with such a response… If indeed its true that he has not seen such an important report… What is he doing about bout it??.. Better yet what are the priorities of the office??… Because if you tell me we are concerned ndi njala..or poverty levels… Then this is the issue that should have been of priority.. If our concern is the lack of drugs in hospitals… Then this should be an urgent concern. Simply put… Malawi its time we wake up… Paying taxes is hard and if someone simply spends that cash without considering that… Then that individual is no-Malawian in my books..

  18. John Black says:

    We have constitutional freedom of speech. As a lawyer and former professor of law, the President is supposed to know he cannot order anyone to “shut up”. (Which is not Presidential language, by the way!)
    And if the names are not in the report, he can publish it, to end teh discussion. But that he does not do!

  19. Nkhulandi says:

    The President knows that he is the only one immune to release names and fire these ministers – Malawians we are in trouble, this guy is just useless! parked at state house just to eat our taxes

  20. mjiba says:

    Mr. President as they say the buck stops at your desk. The Auditor General the sucker who did the report was appointed by you. The Attorney General the sucker who says there are legal consequences for revealing the names of the big cash squanders was appointed by you. Are you telling us these people do not report to you on a serious issue of this nature? Do they tell you “Mr. President we will not tell you the contents of this report because of legal consequences and you thank them for a job well done”???? Mr. Professor Lawyer. What nonsense for a President we have. You are not in control Bwana.

  21. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Our president is failing to tell us the truth. Here is the lie,” Mr. George Mkondiwa was sent to get names of the ministers mentioned in the audit report but he came empty handed.” My question is; did Mr. George Mkondiwa met the auditor general? And came back empty handed. No names. No audit report. Nothing.

    This is purely nursery schools stories.

  22. Mgonapamhanya says:

    Northern region has produced some of the dumbest MPs in the political history of this country. Even when they have nothing to say, they will still vomit poop to the public. The list of such idiots include Mzomera Ngwira, Harry Mkandawire and Kamulepo Kalua. These are true drooling idiots. They will stop at nothing to make wild and outlandish allegations such as “govt sold lake Malawi, govt sold North Malawi, govt sold all Malawians etc”.

    1. Mmmmm….are you sure of what you are saying???? Chilungamo chimawawa amwene….Your president is very sick in his head…..He is a big liar…..He is not in control

    2. Scandinavia says:

      I am not from the north but I do not agree with your assertions Mgonapamuhanya. This boot licking, asshole cleaning and handclapping mentality is what has made us retrogress for years. So please wake the hell up Sir/Madam. The cash we are talking about here is not DPP’s cash. Its for us the taxpayers including your VAT if you do not pay other taxes. In fact if you love the blue camp you should be the first to pump some little sense into the leadership which appears to have no direction at all. How would expect the president to be ignorant of the names when the reports was sent to him. So the need to know who swindled the cash can not be overemphasized. If you do not have the brains to understand and make relevant comment on such pertinent issues please go and sleep.

    Let us sit down and reason together. Ranting will not take us anywhere. Tonse ndife amalawi. Why did Peter Mutharika say MP from the North? What if the concerned MP was from the south, would Mutharika have said MP from the south??. Northern region is also part of Malawi. I see some element of regionalism.

    Mr Kaluwa, if you have the names, please reveal them. You have been known to be a brave fighter, please prove it. We need the names now. If you do not reveal the names, you will loose my respect. I will regard you as just one of the noise makers.

    I am proud Malawian

    1. I agree with you Mr or Mrs Minimum Wage, am also seeing some elements of regionalism in this imbecile of the president, why call the Kamlepo,’ this MP from the North’ Mr Pitala glow up man, we northerners also pay taxes which you end up stealing

  24. chikhwa says:

    Bwana, don’t confuse issues. What does being from the north to do with the report? You from the South, learn to say the truth. Be bold! Why can’t u go to the AG and ask for the names yourself? He has them. But he knows u are as useless, better not tell u but to those who matter like PAC. shame on u!

  26. Mfana odzisata says:

    Mr President, just tell the Attorney General to allow circulation of the report.
    Most of us can read !!!! And don’t tamper with the report’s contents !!!

  27. Risbon says:

    Munthalika you are not smart. At least you could have brought a different excuse. People have lost trust in you. YOu are supporting 7 people at the expense of 17 million citizens, like seriously?

  28. kabwira says:

    nonsense tambem. Che Mutharika amatokalipiraje amvekere nonsense. These are some of the tiresome issues the malawian sing every day. Stupid government of Mutharikas

  29. smart says:

    This issue is hot and if Mr President had brains he should have investigated through the Auditor General.Kamlepo frankly mentions the Auditor General of giving him the report with names ,why can’t he ask this stupid Auditor General to him(Peter) the same report.There is now and again mentioning of Mr KUMPHALASA as having met the pac and the president says he can’t get the same information from him ahahahaaaaaa……yet he reports to him( Peter).Kamuzu was right

  30. kanchenga says:

    Mr President be serious. Don’t treat Malawian as kids. We know you have the names. If you are such a coward why did you join politics. This kind of stupidity from a president is annoying and an embarrassment to those people who voted for you. My friend yesterday left kucheza kukadakoma because he could not believe this kind of stupidity could come from a man he had voted for. Why have you chosen to embarrass the people who voted for you. Did you really pass your law tests or you just bought your degree. I understand it is possible in America. Just imagine the other day the auditor general was asking the attorney general if it was wise to release the names of the seven ministers and the attorney general said no. So you mean these guys are operating independently. Are you really in control or somebody is fucking you around.

  31. Maunisi says:

    Kaboma ka DPP ndikakuba kwambiri kuyambira Mathanyulayo. Ndizoona head of state kuyitanitsa list yanduna zakuba kuchokera kwa MP. Izi ndiye zenizeni ndithu and it was my understanding that the president could be the first person to ask for the files of serving ministers after hearing the allegation. But what this guy is doing is completely shielding and the report there. He is also involved that is the reason he trying to shield them. He is daft president.

    Mr President so are we tired of your lies. You want to tell me that a hot issue like this one should be handled as mildly as you are doing? Can’t you call for the report yourself? Get serious for once Bwana. I agree with Kamlepo, you know the rotten ministers you simply don’t have the balls to deal with them PERIOD

    1. Moses Makoko says:
