Chaponda: To face rap over abused soldiers pay

A team of international investigative journalists are probing the issue after it was discovered that the soldiers did not get their  day allowance for months after completing their peace keeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other trouble spots of the world.

“It was discovered that the US$20 million which the UN gave out as allowances was deposited into an account of a Zambian American business woman Chamika Moore,” said one of the top journalists investigating the matter.

He said it transpired that MDF commander Griffin Supuni masterminded the dubious transaction when he was military attache at the UN office.

“The government was fully aware of this, Dr Chaponda was fully aware of this and the President was fully aware of the issue, that was why Chaponda and Supuni were transferred from their positions as way of protecting therm,” he said.

Failure by the Malawi government to remit the allowance money into the soldiers bank accounts led to the soldiers failure to take orders.

The soldiers have since been cautioned for insubordination.

Meanwhile, Nyasa Times have sources dossier of corruption involving Chanika Moore , a close pal of Chaponda who has been suppling to Malawi army and collected billions of Kwacha.

Anyone above 60 is supposed to be a senior citizen, a role model and a statesman but alas! If 70 somethings olds are busy being involved in Cashgates, who will be a role model to the youths?

Much as I don’t agree with what our politicians are doing, I feel the story is lacking facts. The journalist did not ask any UN official to confirm the allegation or ask the accused to hear side of the story. So, as readers, how do we come up with a judgement? How would one believe the truth about the story? This is typical journalistic error. If Chaponda and Supuni decide to take the journalist to task, the story can easily take a different direction. Mind you, the UN is in this country under the blessings of the Malawi government and… Read more »
