HRDC demands Malawi army, police K6.2bn Covid feast report

Rights activists, the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) is demanding audited reports for the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) and the Police on the abuse OF K6.2 billion Covid-19 funds.

Gift Trapence, chairperson of HRDC said they have noted that although the Malawi Police Service and Malawi Defence Force both received substantial amounts from the Covid-19 funds, both institutions are conspicuously missing from the audit report.

But the National Intelligence Services has been found wanting in irregular allowances and that is highlighted in the audit report..

Addressing a new  conference in Lilongwe on Friday, the HRDC members  demanded an explanation from National Audit Office as to why the two institutions were not audited.

Trapence said their absence from the report raises more questions than answers.

HRDC has meanwhile given seven days to every single person, government department and ministry to pay back the K6.2 billion.

The coalition has since suggested the establishment of a special court to deal with the Covid-19 fraud.

According to them, there is a need for a quick turn-around on the matter.

HRDC says a quick resolution and prosecution of culprits, in this case, will send a clear and resolute message to civil servants on how quick the wheels of justice work.

They say they don’t want a scenario like that of Cashgate cases where, eight years down the line, some cases are yet to be tried.

The human rights group has threatened that it  will mobilise Malawians to go on the streets on April 29 this year.

another corrupt and mapwevupwevu government!shame

Ginimbi, the illuminate, the likes of Bushiri

The more things change the more they remain the same, enawa akamatibera timawamvetsetsa kuti adali okuba before politics, the likes of Bakili Muluzi(6 score pounds), Bingu Wa Mutharika (COMESA saga), Joyce Banda (NABW saga), but this pastor we thought he is a man of the sword(Bible) but alas! he is just a bandit just like other false prophets that are scattered all over Africa!

False prophet indeed. Birds of a feather flock together (Commander-In-Chief versus Major One). Remember the South Africa saga, whose outcome is yet to be known? Kamlepo once said, “Fisi ndi Fisi ngakhale atasintha thengele, adzakhala fisi basi; nde izi tikuona lero’zi.
