Malawi army place K4bn food order without tender

Malawi Defence Force (MDF) has been embroiled in a fresh procurement scandal suspected to be a cashgate scheme by placing an order of K4 billion with a company based in  Blantyre,  Oil & Protein Limited of a Karim,  for food stuff ( tins of Sardines ) without any tender .

The army and police can only buy without tender if its emergency, however the Sardines order is not a matter of exigency.

Military sources told Nyasa Times the order smacks fears of wrongful enrichment.

MDF was heavily linked to the plunder of public resources, christened as cashgate.

Army Commander General Ignacious Maulana conceded the image of his institution is deeply dented by Cashgate links.

Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) have been frustrated in their probe to the military for a K2.9 Billion unaccounted for.

It is reported that the graft-busting body has been pressing the Army to produce supporting documents for examination by ACB.

Former General Henry Odillo is reported to have declined to handover the documents to ACB on pretext that they were “security and secret document”.

But ACB senior public relations officer Egrita Ndala assured the bureau was in the process of analysing documents in relation to these investigations.
