Peoples Party (PP) acting president Uladi Mussa has said former US secretary of state Hilary Clinton bankrolled the Joyce Banda 2014 election campaign.
Mussa said this in a recent radio program.
He dismissed reports that former president Joyce Banda used part of the K30 billion plunder of public money at Capital Hill, infamously known as cashgate to finance the Peoples Party campaign.
“No no, actually it was Mrs Clinton who financed the campaign,” said Mussa.
He said Banda had nothing to do with the cashgate, saying this is why she ordered the arrest of those involved in the cashgate and legal action commenced against them when she was in power.
However, Malawians were surprised that just months into government, the poor briefcase Peoples Party transformed into a rich, powerful influential party with several vehicles and other resources.
Some of the convicted people Oswald Lutepo, late Theresa Senzani, Leonard Kalonga and others said some of the money they stole from gpvernment coffers went to PP.
A former director in the ministry of Tourism, Kalonga said 60 per cent of the looted money went to PP through former director of Budget Paul Mphwiyo.
