The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament (PAC) has confirmed that Director of Budget Paul Mphwiyo will appear before the committee next Monday to present his side on the attempt on his life last September and his take on the looting of government finances at Capital Hill.
PAC’s chairperson Beatrice Mwangonde says Mphwiyo will be among other people who will be interviewed on Monday.
He arrived in Lilongwe on Thursday after spending over two months in South Africa where he received medical treatment since he was shot on September 13.
The Public Accounts Committee of Parliament is currently conducting interviews in the course of its investigating into the cash-gate whose results are expected in January.
Those interviewed so far include former minister of Finance Ken Lipenga, former secretary to the Treasury Randson Mwadiwa, the Accountant General and the Chief Secretary to the Government.
Mphwiyo, a treasury official known for his efforts to fight corruption, was shot in the face and was airlifted to a hospital in South Africa where he underwent surgery.
His shooting set off a rollercoaster of developments that have laid bare massive theft at Capital Hill and arrests of some government officials.
Government says over 68 people have so far been arrested including government and ruling party officials who are answering charges of attempted murder and money laundering.
These include former Justice Minister Ralph Kasambara and Oswald Lutepo.
