High Court finds 10 people guilty in K210m Cashgate case: Kamtengeni acquitted

The High Court in Lilongwe has found 10 people guilty of theft, money laundering and conspiracy to commit a felony in connection with  a 2011 Cashgate case involving K201 million.

Some of the convicts in Cashgate affair

The court has found that married couple and business partners  Cornelius and Yvonne Kaphantengo used their company Nova Technology and General Dealing Ltd to siphon money from the Ministry of Disability which was distributed to 9 civil servants from the ministry and Accountant General Department.

One person, Audney Kamtengeni has been acquitted for lack of concrete evidence.

The case could be deemed as the genesis of Cashgate as the civil servants took advantage of weaknesses in the Integrated Financial Management Information  System (Ifmis) to steal and launder millions.

Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) director general Reyneck Matemba has welcomed the conviction  dedicating it to individuals like T/A Sitola who are not afraid to speak out about corruption and its ills.

The other convicted persons are: Chikondi Chimutu, Deusdedit  Tenthani, Tendai Nayeja, Conrad Nambala, Squire Chakwana, Wides Machika Mbuliro, Tapiwa Ng’oma and Emmanuel Yesaya.

In the case, Kaphamtengo and others wre being accused of stealing and sharing among themselves K201 million ($358 929) in 2011 from the then Ministry of Elderly and Disability Affairs through the Accountant General’s Office.

The alleged looting of public funds took place between November 1 2010 and June 30 2011 and centred around Ministry of Elderly and Disability Affairs through the Accountant General’s office.

Nah! You can’t dedicate these convictions of small fry to TA Sitolo. The TA will only be satisfied if you convict big fish like Phwiyo who we know has been spending cash beyond his meagre salary as a director in the civil service

And we still have some naive cadets who still would want Malawians to believe CASHGATE started, occurred and stopped nthawi ya Joice Banda (stopped after May 2014). Was JB president in 2011? “Kulodza chisoso mdiso la nzako”
And like all thieves amalimbikira emphasing the point ngati zenizeni.
Shame!!!

OOOOoooo, Mai Joice Banda, you have been vindicated here. These thieves have been saying you started Cash gate, am surprised the perod indicated in this article clear show the loot was done when Malemu chief Cashgater Bingu was at the presidency. Shame on this Government of thieves.

Better that way, to serve more years in jail and each sentence to be served separately.
