Chisale under spotlight over wealth: Declares luxury cars were ‘gifts’, no business – Report

Former president Peter Mutharika’s security aide Norman Paulos Chisale, who is answering among other charges fraud and money laundering, and is said to be one of the richest  Malawians in assets and cash, declared  no business outside his work while at State residences, according to published report.

Chisale, a former valet in the Malawi Defence Force,  was Mutharika top security aide at State House.

Everything at State House was  handled by Chisale, including presidential appointments, and he controled who sees the president and who does not meet Mutharika.

Chisale also made news for  dressing like his boss. The two were pictured spotting the same type of shoes, the same type that millionaire international France and Manchester United soccer star Paul Pogba was also pictured putting on.

The selection of Everton Chimulirenji to be running mate to Mutharika in botched 2019 elections is also said to be influenced by Chisale, who was captured in a video clip stopping presidential motorcade at  Ginnery Corner in Blantyre and pick Chimulirenji from the roadside to join Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader  as he presented nomination papers.

On Friday, Chisale’s wealth dominated the country daily newspaper, The Nation coverage which indicated  he does not provide a clear source of his income.

The paper cited  information from  the Office of the Director of Public Officers’ Declarations that  Chisale declared residential houses and motor vehicles among their assets.

Chisale said three of the vehicles on his personal fleet were “gifts” and that some of the houses he owns were financed by loans both from a commercial bank and individuals.

The daily reported that Chisale declared that three of the luxury vehicles he owns were “gifts” from his friends in London in the United Kingdom, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and Lilongwe.

The vehicles include  Mercedes Benz with personalised registration NPC1 (initials standing for Norman Paulos Chisale),  Toyota Landcruiser VX and BMW X5 Series.

The list also includes a Mercedes Benz registration NPC2 pegged at K8 million, a house in Kanjedza Township in Blantyre valued at K30 million he said was a “a loan from Mr L. Fazeh”.

Chisale also declared to have sold a plot in Area 49, Lilongwe to former Cabinet minister Ben Phiri at K12 million.

On liabilities incurred, he indicated on the declaration forms “K200 000 000 FDH Bank account”, suggesting he might have borrowed money from the bank.

The paper also reported about the wealth declared by former State House chief of staff Peter Mukhito, who unlike Chisale, he cited  salary, allowances, farming and business as source of his income.

The former Inspector General of Malawi Police Service also indicated that some of the houses he owns were financed by loans both from a commercial bank and individuals.

Mr. Fazeh whom is mentioned here must be the people who have caused pain to our country. He must be the one whom Chisale is been using to swindle Malawians. These Mwenyes are a cancer to our country. Mr. Fazeh will have to testify in court and produce documents how he gave Chisale all those millions. Nanunso ma lawyer ndi ma judge chonde tithandizeni

I for one dont know why Chisale would cling to a job that gave him MK600,000. when he could have change of MK73m which he used to buy a bus and build a church . Even at his rank he would not receive that much money in gratuity yet he found it fit to work for just MK600 ,ooo if we are to use the tithe calculation where you return 10% then Chisale should have MK730m

I just can’t believe our destiny was being steered by this idiot. The immediate question is: what did he do to deserve such gifts? Could it be he was facilitating lucrative contracts or blackmailing people? Prosecution will have a field day.

Same thought.

This means he was receiving kickbacks and that is a crime as well. He was connecting those giving him gifts to the thief on top of him who happened to either APM or his wicked and crooked wife. Alowe basi or abweze zomwe anatiberazo.

As they say, POWER corrupts and ABSOLUTE POWER corrupts ABSOLUTELY. In the case of Norman Chisale and Gertrude Mutharika, this power was exercised with absolute abandon because it had been usurped by persons who had no mental wherewithal to handle it. Result? Complete chaos. I shudder to imagine what Malawi would have been like had we allowed APM to govern again. 🇲🇼
