Tikonze coalition wants DPP  govt. to account for K5.8 trillion

Newly formed Tikonze Peoples Movement (TPM), an electoral coalition of six opposition parties not represented in Parliament,  is asking the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-led government to account for K5.8 trillion which it has handled since ascending to power four and half years ago.

Demanding accountabuility: Mark Katsonga Phiri (l) and Cassim Chilumpha

Mark Katsonga Phiri, member of the TPM said the DPP-led government under president Peter Mutharika has been abusing the money.

“This is the money which came into the public purse through tax payer money or donors but the money has vanished through theft or corruption yet ordinary Malawians are struggling to make ends meet, the cost of living has drastically gone up,” said Katsonga.

Atleast six parties have joined forces to form an electoral alliance ahead of the May 21, 2019 tripartite elections and say they will field one presidential candidate, one parliamentary and local government candidate in each area as well as use same colours.

The Centre for Multiparty Democracy (CMD) says this means the six parties will have to deregister their previous parties to comply with the new Political Parties Act which came into effect on December 1.

Katsonga, the president of Progressive Peoples Movement (PPM) said the government could have used the K5.8 trillion to build primary schools in each village headman’s area, give people potable drinking water as well as improve electricity generation and distribution among others.

He also said the government could have built the five universities it promised to people.

Please be realistic Messrs Katsonga and Chilumpha(and of course all those stupidly following and supporting your silly ideas). DPP must surely account for the billions of Kwachas an accounted for. However, this is not the the time for forensic audit. What is needed is to boot the thieved out and conduct a forensic audit. People will have to explain how they built all those town houses, filling stations, lodges etc. Wakuba athawa yekha. Can’t you see how they have already started shaking? However, your so-called coalition can’t do anything because you can’t win May 2019. You have to join MCP… Read more »

It’s unfortunate that this Katsonga man Malawians have never given him chance politically. ZoonaUp to K5.8 trillion? With nothing tangible to show for? No wonder Katsonga is an honest successful businessman in true sense, not like some stealer conmen tycoon some political parties. They stole and led to the demise of Stagecoach/Shire bus company, they stole and led the demise of Malawi Savings Bank, the list is endless, all they know is stealing, stealing and more stealing……………
Shame

The money if that’s case should be somewhere in the banks within. Find it and make it public. Otherwise it’s a weird allegation

How tactile is this grouping? Or it’s intention is to capture headlines? For how long are they going to abandon their parties just to voice their political stance? The expiry date for this grouping is May 25 2019 it won’t buzz both Katsonga and Chilumpha chronically suffer from sluggish response to any urgent. Grass has been growing under their feet men endowed with brains but a lot of chidodo
