Bingu Stadium arrested staff over Bushiri money expected to appear in court

Malawi Police say two members of staff for Bingu National Stadium who were arrested over the Shepherd Bushiri money are expected to appear in court today for plea.

Nyondo:  Prophet Bushiri   crossover prayers will now take place atMalawi Square, Umodzi Park in Lilongwe.

Police over the weekend arrested an assistant accountant and an auditor after suspecting them of stealing over K5 million prophet Shephered Bushiri paid as advance booking for the stadium.

The police have said the two will be brought to court within the stipulated 48 hour deadline to bring suspects to court.

Lingadzi Police Station spokesperson Salome Zgambo, said police have since launched a manhunt for the third suspect, a principal accountant.

Zgambo said they have since charged the suspects with theft by public servant.

The arrests follow revelations that BNS management failed to refund money Bushiri paid the facility amounting to K6 million.

Documents indicate that Bushiri paid K5 million in cash and after a few days paid an additional K1 million.

However, out of the money paid, only K800 000 was deposited into government account number one.

But following a decision not to let Bushiri use the facility for his church’s crossover service on December 31, he demanded a refund, a development that led to the discovery on the misappropriation of the money.

Meanwhile, Bushiri spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo said the crossover prayers will now take place at Umodzi Park in Lilongwe.

He said all Covid-19 protocols would be followed such that people wishing to attend will have to get tickets in advance.

Both the Auditor and the Accountant have put their profession in desrepute. If the Auditor is stealing who will safeguard the assets of the company? Poor Auditor. To the investigators: Please extend this investigation to previous payments. We might have more issues than this one.

Kukasambizgana ukhuluku in the name of Jesus, other people are not ashamed of their crooked behaviour. Lutaninge kasambileninge, Principles of Crooks, ise yayi ivi vya mwawavyuma.

The processes are flawed! How on earth can one pay K5m in cash? It’s stupidity at its best for both parties. Wouldn’t be surprised if this scum involves the whole management team at the stadium.

What are crossover prayers? It’s always written as if everyone knows this term.

The question is why is Bushiri walking around with so much cash. He doesn’t have a bank account to write a cheque or do a wire transfer. This is how money laundering works.

We don’t run a country on the basis of emotions, and change doesn’t come in a day. Tisaiwale komwe dziko likuchokera. A very corrupt government that fed themselves, komanso kuli Covid 19 and ma prices a fuel anakwera kalekale ever since the pandemic on international market. Izi zomangoti mask paboma or chilichonse ma demozi zopanda phindu.
