Police, ACB ordered to raid Malawi VP Chilima house ‘in search of corruption documents’

Malawi Police and the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) are working on a joint operation to raid the residence of Vice President Saulos Chilima in search of more incriminating dossiers  believed to be leaked from the graft-busting bodies implicating top government officials in wrongful enrichment.

Chilima:  To face raid

There are reports that about 20 documents detailing a tornado of theft and corruption implicating top government officials have been leaked and one of them is in the public domain is that of  fraudulent transactions in ration packs contract between the  Malawi Police Service (MPS)  and  Pioneer Investments— a firm that   deposited  K145 million  in a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) account for which President Peter Mutharika is the sole signatory.

ACB director Reyneck Matemba confirmed the probe into allegations of fraudulent transactions in ration packs contract between the Police and Pioneer, but expressed dismay with the way the report has been leaked.

Matemba said ACB is investigating officer or  officers who leaked the document.

However, pro-government news outlets on line and social media have been bullish to attack ACB senior investigator Kondwani Zulu for being the one who leaked the documents.

Zulu has not commented on the wild allegations.

It is believed that there many documents which were leaked and kept is safe place abroad.

Presidential spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani has  said the leaked document is a coordinated and sponsored character assassination campaign against President Mutharika and the DPP from a disgruntled politician which he did not name.

He said the police fraud report  “is part of that scheme”.

“It is a fabrication and the said politician is behind this scheme,” he added.

Government fear Chilima may be having “anti-state documents” and a dossier of “embarrassing corruption” in government which he want to “drain the swamp” by alerting the public.

His spokesman Pilirani Phiri refused to comment on Saturday.

But ACB and police sources indicate there are orders to search Chilima’s house.

But observers who spoke to Nyasa Times said instead of wasting time and tax payer’s money investigating who had leaked the corruption document,  ACB should conclude the story and bring to book the culprit.

Chilima hasn’t named anyone specifically about the corruption, so why search his house? The acb is the most corrupt organisation which just serves dpp govt. Acb just pretends to be doing something but does nothing. When this thieving dpp govt says the acb is investigating, it actually means they have ordered the acb not to investigate.

You know many of these people were once stunted due to malnutrition! Their level of comprehension of issues and analytical thinking are
highly compromised! The next government should really invest in eliminating this giant but silent enemy for Malawi called stunting!

From my perspective, and IMHO, the Vice-President should turn any evidence in his possession or knowledge of the claimed corruption to the authorities. He should have already, by now, simply, without prompting, voluntarily handed over the information.
That is, if he is really patriotic. Otherwise, he’s mouthing off and trying to gain sympathy: we all know politics is brutal, and he went there VOLUNTARILY.

Why not starting searching Peter Muthalika’s house for K145miion purportedly missing from government coffers.this clearly shows that Muthalika is behind this plan to frustrate the fast growing Chilima’s Transformation Party.How about Cashgate Get scandal which shows that the two Muthalikas are squarely involved? Peter,live Chilima alone,he is the beloved son of Malawi ready to take power in 2019 national general elections.Malawians are tired of the crooked Muthalikas who have painted our country with black paint in Africa.FORWARD WITH CHILIMA AND BACKWARD WITH MATHANYULA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
