Atupele dares Chakwera on K1.3 trillion theft: Pledges support to graft fight in Malawi

United Democratic Front (UDF) leader  Atupele Muluzi says President Lazarus Chakwera should present evidence to the courts regarding the revelations that about K1.3 trillion was stolen during the Peter Mutharika’s administration.

Atupele: He has pledged his full support in fighting corruption

Writing on his Facebook account, Atupele said while he commends Chakwera for his stance against corruption, there is need for full disclosure and evidence by the President as to how he was informed of such an alarmingly high figure.

“Considering the annual budget of Malawi hovering around the same figure and considering that Malawi is on an IMF/World Bank program, this needs to be further explained.

“Following the discovery of ‘cashgate’ theft during president Joyce Banda’s administration we had anticipated that we had sufficient checks and balances in place to have detected the plunder of such large sums,” he said.

Atupele has since pledged his full support in fighting corruption in the country.

On his part, Chakwera, who won a historic victory over Mutharika in June, has vowed to “clear the rubble” of corruption within the government.

Since taking office, Chakwera, 65, has launched investigations into some of the deals agreed by the previous government, suspending contracts.

A number of arrests are taking place targeting officials of the former government.

Chakwera, a former Pentecostal church leader, says he does not want to be seen to target political rivals in his anti-corruption drive.

Instead, he said the law should take its course.

It’s time his father Bakili was taken back to court over the 1.7 billion Kwacha he stole. His father has always been a thief, right from the one party era. Do you remember that he served time in prison for stealing some ‘shilings’? Do you think his son Atupele is a saint? Like father like son.

Atupele was in government after the cashgate. How can he talk of sufficient checks and balances when the government he was part of did not put such structures in place? Apa palibe mfundo.

Atupele would do better asking his father Bakili Muluzi the King of Corruption, about corruption and how much Bakili stole. Only then can we take him seriously. Otherwise Atupele a party leader who failed to win a seat in parliament as an MP should look and learn.

it does make sense, and this is the reason why Bingu said Malawi can run its budget without aid, because he knew that a lot of money, more than the budget is rooted in country.
