It never rains for President Peter Mutharika’s son Tadikira, Safemotherhood Executive Director Chimwemwe Chipungu and Chris Kandulu of Foreign Affairs Ministry as Malawi Defense Force intelligence, Police and other law enforcers pounced on them, following their questional discussion with business tycoons in a jet that landed at Kamuzu International Airpot this week .
Nyasa Times investigation has established that President Mutharika is angry with what Chipungu, and his step son did by boarding the plane on “test flying” on the pretext that government wants to buy the plane for the President.
The President has since instructed the Malawi Defense Force and Police to deal with the matter accordingly for using his name and that of the government to advance their personal interests.
Sources said Malawi Defense Force Intelligence officers and Deputy Inspector General of Police Rodney Jose summoned the trio which brands itself as “Clean Money Clue” (CMC) to a closed meeting where they wanted to establish why these three called upon a South African business tycoon with his jet on allegation that Malawi government wanted to buy it through them.
The plane, 650 Golf Alpha belonging to a company known as Golf Stream landed at KIA from Rwanda.
Nyasa Times understands that President Mutharika feels injured by the claims that he wants to buy a jet.
Chief Secretary to the government George Mkondiwa has also summoned the three to explain themselves.
Insiders said government has sent some officials from the Malawi Army intelligence to South Africa where they are likely to meet the Jet owners to establish what really transpired before taking further action.
Mkondiwa said it is clear that government does not want to buy a presidential jet.
