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.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
