PP brands DPP as ‘cashgate master-minders’ in Malawi

The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government has come under attack from former ruling People’s Party (PP) for lacking transparency in handling the latest audit report that reveals massive looting of billions of public resources.

Msonda:  DPP are the kingpins of cashgate

Msonda: DPP are the kingpins of cashgate

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) cashbook reconstruction report on the missing billions during the DPP government under the leadership of late Bingu wa Mutharika.

Despite most government departments having internal audit functions, the PwC handed over a cashbook reconstruction report that revealed most departments, including the Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM), that could not supply the auditors with necessary documents for the expenditure transaction totalling K577 billion (US$1.3 billion).

P Spokesperson Ken Msonda branded the DPP as a corrupt government led by politicians who puts personal interest first at the expense of national good.

“DPP is a masterminder of cashgate in Malawi and now there is this K92 billion cash gate report which they want to shield, so we are calling on all Malawians that issues of national importance, issues of national concern we should not politicize,” said Msonda.

Msonda said the cashgate has DPP top brass as perpetrators of the looting.

“We know that some of the senior people who have been walking tall like angels are devils in a sheep skin for their involvement in cashgate, those who were even making noise during our time were actually involved and Malawians are looking forward to have their names mentioned in the K92 billion report.” he said.

Msonda added that time has come that voices from all sectors should come together to speak out against government’s secrecy of the audit report adding that government is obliged to be accountable to citizens than hiding the truth.

“We are calling upon all stakeholders like the civil society, Public Affairs Committee and all Malawians of good will to join forces in demanding justice about this report to be released in its totality to Malawians”, explained Msonda.

PwC continued from where British auditor Baker Tilly, who uncovered traces of cashgate, left.

‘Cashgate’ denotes the systematic skimming of millions of dollars of money from the government payment system.

Following the Cashgate revelations, donors withdrew aid and Malawi has been operating on a zero-aid budget, a situation that has caused misery to Malawians economically.

    Kodi Msondayu ndimunthuu kapena ndi one of animals of Chiweta? Tamuyang’anitsitsani pa picturepa guys. Kapena anachita kuthawa ku mental hospital?

  2. Mafuta says:

    That is why many Malawians in the diaspora are not willing to come back home because coz it almost like going back to zoo

  3. Concerned citizen says:

    Sh!Sh!Hypocrite! For how long do u think shall u cheat all Malawians? TAKE NOTE (Hebrews 4 v 13),There is no a creation that is not manifest to sight of GOD, but all things(including you Msonda)are naked and openly exposed to His eyes.Today you think you are fooling INNOCENT Malawians, but tomorrow truth shall prevail. Mwavala chikopa cha nkhosa yet mkati ndi fisi wakuba misonkho ya magogo who are physically challenge.Mulibe nazo chifundo ndi manyazi ndale zanu zopusazi. What sort of well-chained-trained-thieves Malawi politics have,like trained police dogs without senses of humanity and integrity? ONLY GOD will judge.

  4. Analisti Wamkulu says:

    Some of us worked with Bingu wa Mutharika at the Reserve Bank of Malawi when his six pounds thief friend Bakili Muluzi gave him a job of a Deputy governor.The man had nothing when he fired at Comesa and came at the RBM.The moment he joined politics he became an overnight billionaire within a period of 8 yrs with no any tangible business to show.He even called his brother from where he was labouring in some sleepy Missouri in USA to join politics to make easy money since most of its citizen were sleepy.They only know to talk in some dusty dirty minibuses and in pubs drinking cheap liquor.Amalawi ndi anthu opusa ndipo odontha.No wonder everybody is rushing to join politics to make easy money while the povos are busy clapping hands for thieves.Muluzi stole 1.7 billion,Bingu 61 billion,Joyce also looted unknown figure with her thieving friends and Pitalanso ali busy kupakula and what will happen to them?Nothing.Its a nation full of idiots which poverty has become synonamous to them.

  5. I shud believe that subjective comments wont take us anywhere. some of u comment with a hidden agenda; buying favours, but not this time!. Why dd bingu fail to develop ndata farm n build that k15bn house with his k150 mln assets he declared? he didnt have money but stole our money for personal gains. APM has extended his USA house while in office as president why now not then? he has stolen n is still stealing our money. bingu gave targets to MRA n road traffick kuti atibere money wambiri. Msonda is right during 2014 campaign DPP were all over the place decampaigning PP using cashgate stories. Now zayang’ana ngolo mwati fwi fwi fwi si ife koma PP. Ok if it is PP msonda is saying expose those behind it kaya wa pp udf or dpp. let us not this issue too personal. enanu mungoti bingu anamanga zomba road ndi ndalama zathu u better swallow your pride and face reality. kudzolowera ma hand outs basi! Msonda is younger than peter therefore, he has what it takes to condemn all malpractices. Msonda tiye nawo mpakana atiudze yemwe ankatibera k577 bn. educated savages ruling this country.

    politics!! politics!! The truth is gate cash was started by Bakil improved by Bingu and made bare by Joyce. Tiyeni timpase mayi point imoza basi chifukwa chachimene ichi.

    Tsimukanaziwa izi. a mphwiyoy anayamba ndi Muluzi perfected during the bingu era and got exposed during the Joyce era.

    Enanu mungotwukwana za zii!!!!!!!!!!.

    Where are national auditors? Will we trust private auditors? Shame to Malawi. How would we expect donors if corruption is very high in Malawi

  8. tsetsefly says:

    If people looted MK577 billion and Bingu did not know then he was the biggest idiot ever existed as président. I am qualifying the sentiments that DPP are Indeed the God fathers of cash gate in Malawi. You have been exposés and you have no where to run.

    Our beautiful land of Malawi has been badly soiled by selfish individuals in government departments, supported by equally unpatriotic political masters who have closed their eyes while causing economic mehem to this poor country. There was total displine( may be fear) in the civil service under Kamuzu. UDF invented cashgate which was perfected under DPP when IFMIS was introduced and was unearthed during PP but it is being dodged and probably being nursed in the current DPP administration. The issues surrounding this disgraceful act seem not to be acted upon with the vigour they deserve by those in authority to the dismay of most citizens. Let us put politics aside and clear this mess that is in our midist.

  11. Boyd Kilembey says:

    Dont be selective. We need to know all cashgaters including those responsible for missing K320bn in just three months of Amyi taking office. Msonda dont be selective, ask Amayi also to tell us more about cashgate.

  12. That is a kettle NOT electric kettle but the ones our parents used to use the ones that they were put on the fire to boil water, laughing a pot saying that you’re more dark than me. UDF-DPP-PP are all from the same womb.

  13. This is the new government and the new report ndiye a PP, Nyasa Times and Mayaya don’t get exited as this report covers 2009 up to 2014: The Barker Tiller report of 13bn could have been underestimated or PP government’s delaying tactics to release them then might give them a chance to manipulate the real figure as JB was most powerful and canning-so lets wait for 10 months and see. You may be startled to see some of these CSOs’, Nyasa Times and even Mzimba big dogs involved as PP was an NGO-Nyasa Times-Tumbuka (Mzimba) –led government. Ndiye tisadzamve NYONYONYONYO, ah it is a political witch hunt, NO!! Mwanva ma MP a PP inu! The way Big Bingu was using our own money was magnificent: He managed to upgrade Zomba road with our taxes daring the easily warped donors, built and upgraded many community sec schools, dug village irrigation dams which people fail to use effectively because the CSOs responsible are busy politicking as talk and political matching are very cheap, and very high University stipends, etc., all these using our tax money. A part from new JB foundation campus at green corner, shackling of Mulli Brothers, omitting the two double lanes on our Chilembwe Highway, etc., can JB, CSOs, Nyasa Times and Mzimba guys point to us what they managed to do with our taxes in their 2 years rule- feel ashamed you marauders and greedy fouls. Boma lanu lija ndiye linali MBUZI zenizeni ndiye nabolanso madeya a UDF moti PP ikadzalamulanso through the ballot dziko lidzathera pompo. Aren’t you surprised JB run away into hiding soon after polls? She knew that her honey moon was over and everything under her cover was going to be revealed. Munadziona za DPP zikuthawa m’Malawi muno Bingu atazimitsidwa? Ndiye muzidabwapo pamenepo. These PP guys are laughable they only pull their patriotic socks when it comes to political plunder of our taxes and yet they assist everyday on our billions to go down the drain through the selling of drugs bought by the same taxes. CSOs why not match for the same to force our police, corrupt courts and ACB to be vibrant to stop the everyday ongoing malpractices? Otherwise we are tied of all this mumbo-jumbo.
    Palibe boma lomwe silinabepo Kamuzu anamanga nyumba zasachepera 7 makampana ndiye a bweeeee! Osatipusitsa tiyeni tidekha and this msonda must stop his propaganda, mind you this report covers 2009,2010,2011,2012,2013 and 2014 ndiye a msonda musathe mawu.

  14. Kes says:

    Atchitsiru Awa alibendi manyazi had you Msonda actually looked at the “K 92 billion” analysis you would have found that for the 2 years PP found itself in power by accident K350 billion is un accounted for.
    You would have also found that the most money was embezzled when Mphiyo was budget director and that as soon as Mphiyo was shoot allot of stollen cheques stoped being cashed.
    Vuto pa Nyasaland we have a lot of very daft but very loud shameless people, I doubt Msonda has read the analysis or would even understand the analysis.
    Another government department were a lot of money is un accounted for during DPP bingu time is the office of the Vice President, Joyce Banda by the way.

    I wish MCP was the ruling party. Obviously, we wouldn’t be talking of delays or hiding stuff now

    1. Chikadzakowani says:

      MCP shouldn’t just wish, MCP should act now. Their NEC is full of people who know how government works; they should push for the unmasking of the people behind this massive looting of public funds. DPP wants to paint a picture that huge public funds disappeared just like that, without holding anyone accountable. PP unmasked its looters; why is DPP failing to do the same?

      It doesn’t matter that PP seems to have stolen more funds than DPP; the culprits who stole public funds under both regimes should be revealed. This is something that MCP should not relent on – and the good news is that PP MPs can be used as allies in this fight since they also want DPP thieves unmasked (when a thief is caught he is not happy to face the music alone). Another thing is that DPP capitalised on PP’s cashgate – DPP based their 2014 campaign on promising to clean up PP’s cashgate, when all along they knew very well that they had a cashgate of their own.

      Malawi cannot develop with this level of public finance mismanagement. Impunity should not be tolerated.

  19. Professor Seyani says:

    DPP is the master of cashgate, perfected by PP government and reconditioned again by DPP govt. Pitara just open to the nation on 92 Billion cashgate
