MERA is among Malawi government parastatals where public funds have been ended into DPP gurus pockets.

The ‘Cash-madam’ has recently also be “entangled” in a love relationship with rapper Tay Grin as she publicly posted messages on social media boasting about their affair, branding the  DPP politician-cum-singer as “Cash-king” with love statements.

This is what we call money laundering. Instead of Collins stealing the money directly, he pretended that a private company, DC Cloud was supplying t shirts and the t shirts are then over priced because the aim isn’t to buy t shirts. The aim is to steal money

The issue is not on the price of the golf shirts but rather on how the contract was given…..

A real Jezebel indeed. Fake hair, fake nails, too much lipstick and edited picture full of make-up. You wonder what her real complexion is. Today morning she will look dark like on the interview she had with Banda. In the afternoon, she will look like a colored. The other day she has a booty, another day she is flattish. Talk of uncle ndiye osayamba. Whenever she travels, the whole world would know that she has travelled and Business class. Ndala ma zokuba ku MERA chibwezi Chake Collins Magalasi. Ma covid wo ndiye kumangogawanatu. School zero, Chipungu chimavutirapo. She couldn’t even… Read more »

The 75000 per Golf shirt is not an issue, I have bought expensinve Golf Tshirt more than that price in Mark and Spencer, The problem with people in Malawi is that they want to dress well by paying less, Most of the times I have bought expensive shoes for my sibling and my wife , for example at one point I bought a CK shoes around USD300 which was more than MK200,000 and I gave the shoes to my sibling , anthu pomufunsa they asked if I can buy them a similar shoes , when I told them the fee… Read more »

Childish comment. Shows exactly what sort of a person you are. I guess you are a show off and such a boring person in company of people.

I don’t think many people would be interested to know how much exactly you spend on clothes.

Majority of Malawians cannot afford a 75,000 t-shirt or USD300 shoes you are claiming. Most of us can afford that.

So keep those figures to yourself.

People have already mentioned that the quality and type of those t-shirts is sold at around 10,000 to 20,000. What I see here is that you just want to show off that you buy expensive stuff but you haven’t Understood the issue in question here. Can you compare a Mark and Spencer T-shirt to the one bought in China and supplied dubiously at some organization without following proper procedures where it is evident that the woman was being bonked by the CEO of that Organization? Understand issue before commenting please.

You are next. I am sure your genuine disposable income can not allow you that spending but because you were doing like her, life was easy. Come in the open tikufufudze ngati nawenso sugweramo.

I think you’re missing the point. Buying t-shirts was not the issue here. The t-shirts were just a smoke screen for stealing money.

I believe the writer was looking for a word “socialite”. It fits well. Socialist means something else.

Is this case of price inflation different from that of Gafaar for the buses which he sold at an inflated price to Mutharika? Why are police then not arresting the cabinet minister Gafaar?
