Mphwiyo blows K1 million on gambling

Former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo, at the centre of massive looting of billions of kwachas of government money, surprised revelers at DBR Gaming Casino in the affluent suburbs of Lilongwe’s area 10 when he gambled the machines a cool K1 million in cash last Thursday.

Mphwiyo: A gambler

Mphwiyo, whose shooting on September 13, 2013 revealed the massive looting of government money, arrived at the Casino with a brown envelope containing K1, 000 bank notes in starches of K100, 000 each and gave the barman for safe keeping.

He took two bundles of K200, 000 and went to the gaming area and was back within 30 minutes to get two more bundles of K200, 000, according to an eye witness who did not want to be named.

“After another 30 minutes he came to the barman again to get another K200, 000 and went back to the gambling area and re-appeared after an hour to get another K200, 000. After this one he joined us at the bar and started buying everyone who was there whatever they were drinking, we were about 10 people at the bar and we drunk like nobody’s business,” said the eye witness.

Many patrons in the bar wondered who the ‘rich’ dude was until one of the guys recognized him as Paul Mphwiyo.

“He did not look bothered that he had lost so much money on the gambling machines, he looked calm and composed. He had more than K1 million kwacha on him in cash that night and blew it on gambling and drinks, some guys have got all the luck,” said the eye witness.

Mphwiyo was back in the witness box on Monday  testifying against former Justice Minister Ralph Kasambara and his colleagues who have been charged with his attempted murder from the shooting.

Mphwiyo is a civil servant and his salary, according to insiders, ‘cannot reach K500, 000’.

Tell us more. Wisdom is the principle thing.

All this while other people starve in the townships, others cannot even afford shoes and people are dying in hospitals from lack of medicines. We need to round up these cashgate dogs, reposess all their money and property, and throw them in jail. Sis.
