Malawi MPs inquiry on maizegate summons Transglobe again

A parliamentary inquiry on maizegate has summoned officials from Transglobe again after they refused to appear before the inquiry on Friday.

MP Chidanti Malunga: Transglobe should appear before the inquiry on Sunday, respect Malawi laws

Chairperson of the inquiry Joseph Chidanti Malunga said the joint committee has issued a summon to the agro dealers to appear before the committee on Sunday.

Transglobe officials are expected to explain themselves to the inquiry their role in the procurement of maize from Zambia.

The execcutive director of Transglobe exchanged emails directly with the Agriculture minister George Chaponda which raised suspicion.

Chaponda denies any wrong doing. Appearing before the inquiry on Friday was the chaiperson of the Grain Association of Malawi, Grace Mijiga Mhango.

He lied, made contradictions and fumbled before the committee, saying she never knew anything about Kaloswe and Zambia Cooperative Federation.

Yet evidence before the committee from Kaloswe and ZCF showed clearly she was the go between between Admarc and Kaloswe and Admarc and ZCF.

At one point she conceded to have played a crucial role in the procurement of maize from Zambia but said she was just sent.

The interrogating and investigating members of parliament said she had a leading and crucial role in the procurement of the maize and acted like the procurement officer for Admarc.

Bravo our MPs! You represent the masses and you have the right to summon anyone to appear before you….if transglobe officials dont come then they should be arrested for contempt. There are some sectors of our society who dominate business but are very corrupt!!

This trans globe should just be sent packing if it thinks Malawians are foolish. They think they can just be stealing public money like that? Please, this is serious and lets not accept this contempt. Malawians should wake from our deep slumber and realize that the likes of trans globe are no different from those companies involved in cash gate. Police in Malawi should learn to protect the laws of the land not only on the road but also like those purportedly broken by trans globe in this case. Why should trans globe be bigger than any one in Malawi?… Read more »
