MPs Mwenifumbo, Chidanti Malunga in all drawn war over Zambia maizegate trip

Karonga Central MP Frank Mwenifumbo has accused chair of parliamentary inquiry on maizegate Joseph Chidanti Malunga of favouritsm following his failure to take on board Mwenifumbo on the Zambia trip.

Face off: Chidanti and Mwenefumbo over Zambia trip

Some of the inquiry members left for Zambia on Tuesday morning where they are expected to meet those involved in the sale of maize to Malawi after reports of suspicious deals allegedly by Agriculture Minister George Chaponda and Admarc CEO Foster Mulumbe.

The two denies any wrong doing.

Mwenifumbo said Chidanti Malunga had shown all along that he did not want the Karonga Central MP, who took an active part in the investigations, to be part of the team that travelled to Zambia.

“When the issue of money came up, there were several options which were floated to him, to reduce the number of days so that I be accomodated, the Speaker of  Parliament be approached to help out but the chair never did this, may be he has issues with me,” said Mwenifumbo.

But Malunga said donors of the trip  Civil Society Agriculture Network (CisaNet), could not accomodate more people on the trip as their budget was modest.

He said he had no personal issues with Mwenifumbo except for the budgetary constraint.

The inquiry is expected to meet Chaponda soon after coming from Zambia.

Graft busting body, the Anti Corruption Bureau also went to Zambia on the same issue whilst the President Peter Mutharika appointed Commission of Inquiry says it intends to go to Zambia as well for the same purpose.

Dear my fellow citizens I have read all your comments you have made as to regards to the story above . This is a democracy in which free speech is encouraged whether positive or negative . I take all your comments positively . It simply shows how much you care about our country Malawi especially where you hold everyone in a public office to account . However let me clarify on few issues for you to be well informed . Section 154 of our standing order provides that a joint commitee shall be formed to look to a matter of… Read more »

All these people are corrupt…palibe wabwino. Kulira chifukwa akusiyani ulendo and wapa Zambia??? koma ngakhale dyera ndi ndalamazo!!! How much have this team spent during the intorragation seating in Lilongwe?? Anthu AKUBA NONSE INU!!!!!


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Mwenifumbo my boss !!!!

So, kusapita ku Zambia mwakuliratu….. this clearly shows that you (whole interrogating body) are not doing us (Malawians) favour and showing accountability. Mukungofuna muzitithera ndalama through allowances and whatever. Stop all these processes !!!!

Nonse mukuimba nyimbo imodzi apa.


Allowances are peanus. This issue is vital. Money should be found immediately so that Mwenifumbo should be in Zambia immediately. Leaving someone behind is doctoring the final report. Use money from cash gaters.


Is he the only one left from the Committee?? Why he suggests that any extra funding sourced would automatically entitle him to go, smacks pomposity, n self-centered greed n selfishself-centeredness. Do we need say more about how selfish these northerners are??? To hell.


There are no personal issues here.In fact Honourable Mwenifumbo excused himself during the first week of the inquiry to attend to to his private business and was replaced by Hon Nyalonje.Just because it is now about huge sums of external travel allowances he wants to druze himself in?That is not fair.Please behave honoroubly Mr!
