Published reports indicated that thugs broke into the house of the official who is working on financial management system reforms where they only stole Cashgate work-related papers—prompting fears that the attack was motivated by the investigations into the K557 billion audit.

Woeste said they have told Malawi government their anguish on the “criminal attacks that may appear to be politically motivated” happening in the country.

The German envoy warned that the politically inspisired gangs may put Malawi on a dangerous road if government may miss the opportunity to take decisive action.

“Any criminal attack on one of my colleagues is unacceptable. I have had further meetings with the highest ranking officials on the matter. Of course, we are still waiting for a police report on the matter,” said Woeste as quoted in the press.

“We consider this work-related. The expert is working on the financial management system reforms. He had contact with the people who did the audit; well, the thieves should be disappointed because we have no information apart from what is available on the Internet.”

But National Police public relations office said they had no information on the matter.

Germany, through its international cooperation wing, GIZ, is technically and financially supporting the audit, which is being carried out by auditing firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC)—focusing on financial mismanagement in government between 2009 and 2013.

Dr Peter Woeste you are lucky not to be buried in some river banks like recently murdered ACB staff Njaunju.When cases are connected to politicians,they do not lead anywhere.They will frustrate the whole process.You don’t know that some policemen are promoted because of protecting this immoral backdoor cheap govt of Dpp.Probably it will go far if you get some Scotland Yard police mixed with your Germany police and a handful Malawian police with a little integrity left in them.This is modern immoral Malawi.Politicians are making easy billions in expense of the poor Malawians and a few connected to these cheap… Read more »
Buhari of Nigeria on the issue of corruption he is influencing law-makers,lawyers,courts including many other organisations to team up fight this matter and he describes corruption the great violation of human rights.Such are people born to be proud as natives of their state.In Malawi we are good at blame and honestly this must be a curse which needs only prayers.
