No comment please leave me alone, says Chaponda as ACB concludes corruption probe

Embattled former Agriculture minister George Chaponda on Friday refused to comment on the graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) conclusion of the investigations on the Mulanje south west legislator’s involvement in Zambia maize deal.

Chaponda: No comment, please leave me alone ohhh!

Chaponda vigorously shook his head in denial of an interview at parliament building in Lilongwe just before the House rose.

“I am not commenting on that, please leave me alone,” said Chaponda as he entered the Chamber.

ACB deputy director Reyneck Matemba said recently that the Bureau has now concluded the investigations in the suspicious purchase of maize from Zambia.

Chaponda, who still remains the powerful politician in the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) where he is vice president is at the centre of a multi-billion maize procurement scandal after two state inquiries  found that his dealings with a local company, Transglobe Produce Limited, were inappropriate, suspicious and bordering on corrupt tendencies.

Matemba refused to give details on the ACB findings but said the bureau finished the investigations three weeks ago.

If I was Chaponda I could resign from politics. But greedy Malawians hang on till the government changes. Since multiparty came to Malawi the nation has become poorer. Democray has turned the country into most corripted country in Africa. Shame. Malawi could have been far ahead because its a small nation. Yes population has increased But we are still not big population to fall as we have. Corruption is so open it is like it was in Nigeria a nation system. Education, healthy and agriculture failled. These three were best in Malawi during one party system and it could have… Read more »

FRANKLY SPEAKING, THERE IS NOTHING AS MALAWIANS AT THE GRASSROOT WILL YIELD FROM THIS CASE IF NOT TO SUFFER AS TAX PAYERS ON DAMAGES MADE ON CHAPONDA ON DEFAMATION. AFTER ALL, REPORT OF COMMISSION OF ENQUIRY SAID IT ALL THAT NOT EVEN A SINGLE TAMBALA CHANGED HANDS. WE CAN TALK AND TALK AND TALK. NOTHING WILL CHANGE. IT REMAINS NO MONEY WAS STOLEN. SO, WHERE IS CORRUPTION?

This is a serious twist. What happens to the 3 convicted of conspiracy to murder when the victim himself says he was under duress to implicate them? Does that trial and ruling still stand? This is the man that testified that he saw the people that shot him and now says he was forced to say that?

Convicted already

The current constitution does not condone arbitrary arrests. Let the ACB do its due credible work. Otherwise, Chaponda is innocent up until a competent court finds him otherwise. The issue has been blown out of context by politics of exaggeration. The whole story started with allegations that he pocketed K9.8Bn thru the maize procurement. There was no any other story than this. This led to three independent inquiries: That instituted by the State President, the noisy one from Parliament and the CAMA one. All of the 3 dismissed the fabrications that Chaponda pocketed the said money worth k9.8 Bn. So… Read more »
