Malawi police release Mukhito without charge in cement saga probe

Fiscal and Fraud Section of police on Tuesday released former Chief of Staff of State Residences, Peter Mukhito,  after questioning without any charge and he did not sleep in the cooler.

Mukhito: Released

Mukhitho—who also served as Inspector General of police during the late Bingu wa Mutharika regime— was under arrest as officers questioned him in connection with the importation of cement worth billions of kwacha using former president Peter Mutharika’s Taxpayer Identification Number (TPIN).

But police left him go home.

Nyasa Times understands that Mukhito could be used as a prosecution witness.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera  confirmed Mukhito release but could not divulge more information to avoid complicating ongoing investigations.

Everyone knows this guy as a real looter. He appended his signature on the cement saga and you let him free. Selective justice at its best. You are locking in Cash Madam for overprising a t-shirt and you are giving a ministerial post to Gaffar as a reward who over priced those 2 buses. Kodi kulodzedwa kwake kwa mtundu waji inu a Chilima ndi a Chakwera?

Former police boss steals cement and the police let him go free with lame excuse that he is an informant? Is the police not just protecting one of its own? If that’s how you will fight corruption then I expect corruption to win again. Police and acb are not serious

Mukhitho will be witness because he got instructions from Chisale who claimed the president wanted to import cement

Do you understand what a state witness is ? It means that Mukhito has spilled the beans ( beans zake za kalongonda ) on who was giving him the instructions to authorise the various criminal transactions by using APM’s TPIN.
