Commissioner for prisons responsible for operations Masauko Wisikoti confirmed Namathanga, former principal secretary for ministry of Tourism will leave the Maula prison on Thursday having spent a year in the prison having taken part in the K30 billion public money plunder at Capital Hill popularly known as cashgate.

“The Officer in charge of Maula Prison said she had showed exemplerary behaviour while in prison, we did not receive any complaints from the OC of Maula prison concerning her,” said Wisikoti.

Senzani was supposed to finish her sentence on October 6, 2017 after she was jailed on October 6, 2014.

She was sentenced nine months IHL for theft and three years for money laundering.

Izizi tu ndizokwiiitsa kwambiri! . . . Is it hard to see that people in authority continue to act stupidly becaue Malawians are generally respectful or peace-loving or timid or equally stupid?

I hope we all understand what the sentence was instead of just putting up statements that do not make sense here. She accepted that she stole money which she was accused of and paid back in full the amount in question.
