The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB)  has arrested former Senior Procurement officer in the Ministry of Tourism, Oddoi Kamange in relation to the plunder of public resources in 2013 widely known as Cashgate.

Oddoi Kamange; suspect

Nyasa Times understands ACB officers arrested Kamange on Tuesday.

Kamange  was first named in the Magistrate court in 2013 by Smart Ndovi when she pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering and siphoning about K12.9 million from public coffers.

Ndovi told  the  court that she was approached by Damage  to use her business registration certificate to ‘Cashgate’.

She said Kamange was a brother in law whose wife stayed with her for sometime.

After she received the cheque from the Accountant General, Ndovi said Kamange started calling her to come to collect the money which was deposited in the account of her business, Fusion Limited.

Ndovi told the court that she sent an assistant to cash a cheque amounting to K6 million which Kamange collected on August 19 before he returned to collect the remaining amount a few days later.

She told the court that Kamange said he feared for his job if he did not deliver the “goods” to first Cashgate convict Treza Senzani, then principal secretary, and tourism officer Kalonga even though she did not know them personally.

Ndovi told the court that she suspected Kamange used the money to purchase a house in Area 12 and a Toyota Landcruiser from a businessperson.

Malawi and the rest of Africa will always lag behind. How we are selfish as africans is the reason why. looking at at how poor Malawi is, how could one woman pocket more than 1 billion kwacha for herself, and then how could the whole ACB come up with this nonsense, i mean especially now, after all these years, and when everybody is busy giving each other huge tax payer money to stay in government? Perhaps we monkeys that the other races call us, or atleast we are monkey-headed. Stupid Malawians. Educated or not our reasoning remains the same. The… Read more »

Only frying the small fish, this is a sham.

Where are the real culprits? The ultimate beneficiaries?

Agency or political tool?

Why did it take so long? Now most evidence destroyed, some witnesses dead, property resold and most of their property ownership changed or transfered to unknown names how to expect to win the cashgate cases?good luck
