Malawi Sun Hotel owners Mohammed Irshad Ahmed and Suhaik Irshad Ahmed are facing possible arrest following investigations into allegation of land grab in Blantyre City implicated together with former president Peter Mutharika’s personal bodyguard Norman Chisale.
Ahmed is accused of acquiring land through dubious means in Blantyre allocated to the developer by Ministry of Lands which was never for sale but through Chisale bulldozed to buy the land.
Anti Corurption Bureau (ACB) has been investigating the matter and could possibly lead to Ahmed arrest for corruption offences.
On the other hands Malawi Sun Hotel has acquired land in Lilongwe for a project of a hotel which Ahmed was in partnership with Chisale.
The land was never paid for and neither have the city rates and scrutiny fee bene paid for the said proposed project.
Some of the concerns from the general public have been that foreign nationals own more land than indigenous Malawians.
Government has also been accused of making land expensive to average Malawians, thereby giving an advantage to foreigners to buy the land as they have money.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
