Masm board member Kaimvi shields daughter in fraud scandal

One of the board members for Medical Aid Society of Malawi (MASM) Washington Kaimvi has been accused of protecting his daughter Ivy who is connected to the fraud at MASM, Nyasa Times has learnt.

According to Nyasa Times sources at MASM, some board members are not happy that the father would like to attend a board meeting taking place this Friday as this would affect the discussions in his presence.

“They don’t want Kaimvi to attend the meeting. He has tried so hard to shield his daughter. After he was informed that the daughter was involved, Kaimvi used his muscle to make sure that the issue did not go public. We hear a lawyer has been identified to defend his daughter just in case MASM would want to fire the daughter,” the source said.

Other sources say Ivy has over the years been pocketing money from members with full knowledge of the father then falsifying records to allow such members to fraudulently access services for which MASM has been paying heavily including foreign treatment.

“It is impossible to deal with fraud when one of the board members is busy protecting his daughter. It is not about his daughter, we want to protect MASM from further fraud in future, we must deal with this now,” a source said.

Nyasa Times understands that some members of staff have voluntarily resigned while others have been summarily dismissed.

Efforts by management to deal with this gross abuse is affected by Mr Kaimvi’s stance to protect his daughter.

Nyasa Times is making efforts to publish the extent of the looting at MASM.

MASM needs a replacement now because all the money contributed there NDIZAMASIYE. Its time that you source for a new Chief Executive Officer at the organisation. The place is highly infested with thieves right from the top to the bottom.

This is the style of stealing at Masm. Even if you correctly check the CEO himself you will be shocked that he is involved in this scandal. It is indeed wrong for any son or daughter to be employed at the same organization where the father is a board member. The general should know that they are enriching the individuals at Masm.Patients are taken to tough task when ever they visit any hospital and even outside the country.

In the first place, how is the daughter found there? Did she go through the normal process of employment? These are the after effects of Mafia type of corruptions.
