Chilima name appears on Sattar list, Chakwera withholds veep’s delegated duties

President Dr Lazarus Maccathy Chakwera says he has withheld Vice President Saulos Chilima’s delegated duties to allow for investigations as his name appears on Sattar list.

This is a list of individuals the graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) suspect received money and other gifts from graft kingpin Zuneth Sattar to induce the public officers give him government contracts.

Jobless Vice President Dr. Saulos
This means Chilima is no longer minister responsible for Public Reforms.
Addressing the nation on Tuesday evening, Chakwera said 84 public figures are mentioned as having benefitted from Sattar.
He has since fired the Inspector General of Police George Kainja and suspended chief of staff for State Residences.
The President has asked the Secretary to the Office of President and Cabinet Colleen Zamba to deal with the chairperson of PPDA whose name also appears on the Sattar list.
Chakwera however said he could not take administrative action against the Vice President because he holds an elective office, therefore the Head of State has no powers to discipline him.
The Malawi leader also said the list has names of journalists, lawyers, officials from the Judiciary, the ACB itself, Police, Malawi Defence Force, ministry of Justice among others.

He needs to step down. The humiliation itself taints his image beyond belief. He will always be seen and held in negative light. He should step aside and come back after he is acquitted if he is vindicated. It smells like he is a crook though. He must have pocketed millions of dollars to help enrich himself and his family. Pathetic! Judicial system in Malawi is also bought by Sattar. So a lot of these dudes who did shady shit with Zuneth will more than likely get away with their corruption cases.

And all this stealing is happening under the watch of who? Isn’t it under chakwera? He was first to resign, he must take responsibility and not run away from it. It still stinks a lot. I don’t think even bwana is 100% clean. Chilima may not want to go down the drain alone. Malawi is drinking bitter water right now. Devaluation. Inflation. Fuel increase. Corruption. You people mukutidyesa galu.

This whole saga stinks of corruption. Chakwera blames the report to be of sub standard. It only means he is trying to hide something.
Is he involved in it as well?
