DPP take on Malawi Sun Hotel over land, money laundering to Faisal Karim

Main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators who have  condemned the penchant for opulence for Malawians for Asian origin who do business with government are now focusing on Malawi Sun Hotel owners Mohammed Irshad Ahmed and Suhail Irshad Ahmed over dubious access to land.

Minister of Lands Msukwa: Will issue a ministerial statement 

The DPP want proper audit on a Plot in Area 46 which the party suspects scrutiny feenwas not paid and that land rate fees has also been defaulted.

The land was purchased for a project of a hotel.

“We want proper audit trail on all Ahmen transaction,” a DPP legislator told Nyasa Timesa day after Mulanje Bale MP Victor Musowa moved a private member motion which both sides of the House agreed that there is a problem in access to land, racical discrimination by forein nationals and and business opportunities in government.

Apart from Lilongwe land grab, Malawi Sun Hotel is also implicated for a land in Blantyre City.

Ahmed is accused of  acquiring land through dubious means in Blantyre  allocated to the developer by Ministry of Lands which was never for sale but bulldozed  during the DPP regime to buy the land.

Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) has been investigating the matter but has not reached logical conclusion. They seem to be waiting for National Crime Agency of UK on the reply of investigations of Faisal Karim of St Georges Garage car sales in UK.

Some of the concerns from the general public have been that foreign nationals own more land than indigenous Malawians.

Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development Kezzie Msukwa said land has been mismanaged from the past regimes.

“I will be coming up with a ministerial statement,” he said.

Msukwa called for sober handling of the issue to avoid creating racial tension.

“We need to be able to debate passionately but not emotively,” he said.

Government  has also been accused of making land expensive to average Malawians, thereby giving an advantage to foreigners to buy the land as they have money.

The motor company in the UK, St Georges Motor which faisal karim runs on behalf of his sons father in law, is a front to all kinds of shady dealings. Let’s hope the National Crime Agency gets to the bottom of this company and recoups all money stolen from Malawi and elsewhere.
Faisal Karim is hiding at his daughter in laws house if you need to find him.

APM and Zameer in K145 million Scam

It is the same dpp which messed up everything. Musowa is busy attacking Asians now but he has forgotten that his boss APM and Zameer were involved in siphoning our taxes through food rations that are difficult to audit because food is a consumable item. Musowa is attacking Asians for racism citing Mpingwe Sports Club yet dpp was practising tribalism. Fine racism is of race but why should one tribe that is even on the verge of extinction think it was superior to others? That was dpp. If you live in a glasshouse don’t through stones. If you can’t take… Read more »

Faisal Karim has been laundering money for his Malawian associates for years, even before he started to run St Georges garage, which actually belongs to his son father in law.

Ministry of Lands AND Present Ruling Party should Check How did these Politicians have got so much of Land and were the Money came from
