Chakwera relocates to Mtunthama as Kamuzu Palace is undergoing renovations

State House Press Secretary, Brian Banda  has revealed that President  Lazarus Chakwera has been based at Mtunthama State Lodge in Area 3 in Lilongwe since Thursday last week as Kamuzu Palace was undergoing much needed renovations using funds allocated specially for State Residence functions.

Chakwera: Moves to Mtunthama temporarily

“The President will be temporarily staying at Mthuthama for about four weeks while awaiting the renovations which are long overdue,”

“A number of State residences are in a bad state,” Banda said at a weekly press briefing.

“ Statehouse in the past had money relocated for renovations but looking at the state of the residences, we do not believe those renovations where indeed taking place,” Banda explained.

He added that government would conduct a follow up investigation on how the funds have been used in the past since parliament have been relocating the funds every year but there has been nothing to show for it.

Banda said that the President was committed to making sure that mining industry was properly regulated by engaging all sectors in the mining industry to find out the challenges that are there and how best they can be handled.

It does not concern us where the dude is staying but he should reduce price of fuel, prices of utilties and prices of goods and groceries. For how long are we going to be patient with this retired reverend. Enough of him. He should go.

Then time to ask Bonongwe to explain exactly what renovations did he do for which he was paid in excess of around K247 million.

I am not surprised to learn that APM pocketed the monies meant for renovations. That’s what he is: A crooked fellow with shifty eyes, and a “propensity for compulsive criminal conduct”. But then …. didn’t Laz spend several weeks at his personal house in Lilongwe after he won the fresh elections before he moved into Kamuzu Palace as he was awaiting “renovations” to take place? They’re doing more renovations now? Wow! It seems these guys are taking us taxpayers to the cleaners in broad daylight!!!

Chakwera did spend time at his personal house at the start but that was to don with cleaning as the toilets were so bad with DPP cadets pissing on walls as they were usually drunk there as was Pitsala

Yes – the money was allocated, then relocated – into someone’s pocket, perhaps.
