Uladi turns the heat on Minister Chiumia on issuing BRP to Asian businessman Kassam Nurmahomed

People’s Party (PP) interim leader Uladi Mussa who was recently arrested over  the apparent citizenship and passport scams is challenging Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) and government to arrest and charge Minister of Home Affairs Grace Chiumia on abuse of office and corruption.

Chiumia: Reportedly issues directives for the BRP on Asian businessman

Whitsle-blower is said to have alerted law enforcing agencies that the Minister of Home Affairs has influenced the issuing on Business Resident Permit  (BRP) to  an Asian businessman Kassam Nurmahomed who was  recently arrested  by the Immigration Department.

Nurmahomed was  arrested   for contravening the Citizenship Act after he was found in possession of a British and Malawian passport when he was about to leave the country for South Africa.

According to documents seen by Nyasa Times, Nurmahomed  had acquired the Malawian passport  number MA 867427on 26 April 2016 and started using it  alongside his British passport.

Malawi laws prohit dual citizenship.

But after money  – about $5 000 – exchanged hands, Chiumia influenced the Immigration Department to issue Nurmahomed a BRP.

Now Mussa is turning the heat on Chiumia, saying she is abusing her office to authorise BRP for the Asian businessperson after gratification.

“Where is ACB? What is government going to do with a Minister who is abusing office,” wondered Mussa.

Immigration sources confirmed that the BRP on Nurmahomed issues “on directives from Minister of Home Affairs.”

Chiumia could not immediately comment.

But Mussa, who faces charges  based on what is alleged to have been his final authorisation to an apparent irregular process that saw the Immigration Department granting citizenships and passports to immigrants from neighbouring countries, says the issue of Chiumia should also see its day in court.

Mussa, who is accused of having appended his signature to the said irregularities while he was Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security over three years ago, was charged along with former senior assistant chief immigration officer David Kwanjana, who also denied the charges.

Facts of the issue on Mr. Nurmohomed Kassam are that the Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services carried out an investigation after it was discovered that he acquired British Citizenship in addition to being a Malawi citizen by descent since 1984 as a result of his parents being Malawi citizens. Currently dual citizenship is not permitted under section 6 of the Malawi Citizenship Act CAP 15:01 of the Laws of Malawi. Consequently the Department instituted a process of withdrawing the Malawi citizenship of which Mr. Kassam challenged by applying for a juditial review of the matter at the High Court… Read more »

I want to express my deepest disagreement with Malambo who has openly supported Robert Mugabe and Julius Malema of South Africa.Both these people are corrupt and useless especially, Mugabe whose policies have driven the nation to extreme poverty and corruption making Zimbabwe one of the poorest countries in the World.Malema,has no political clout nor experience,he is just blown with the wind.He is imitating Mugabe’s policy of land-snatching which has led to dire shortage of food leading to massive starvation of the overwhelming majority of Zimbabweans.Once the bread-basket of Southern Africa,has become the lonely beggar,manutrition among children is 90%,corruption is on… Read more »

Congrats Uladi for courageously warn Minister Chiumia for her unwarranted issuing of BRP to an Asian corrupt thug,Kassam Nurmahomed.It is high time that our leaders stop succumbing to evil Asian business people.It is not only in Malawi these satans have managed to control the leaders but,in most parts of Africa especially East Africa and part of Southern Africa.China,India and Pakistan are dominant spoilers of our infirm economies by far worse than Western economically powerful nations.It was Uganda’s entrenched economic corruption by Indians that led to haphazard expulsions of these rogues from Uganda by Idd Amin Dada.In Malawi,Indians and Pakis have… Read more »

We should blame our corrupted leaders. They work with leaders in Africa to drain forex and take to roreign banks. When stupid Afrcans going to learn they are enriching western banks while our banks have NO money to borrow to people ord citizens with low interest and charge customers savings charges. During Kamuzu they were no savings charges. I dont remember that. Indians dont bank in Malawi. Look at land. All land is sold to Indians or Asians. How can an Indian or Pakistanians hold two citizenship while Malawians diasporas have asked for dual and We dont get it? Are… Read more »

Just what is our country heading to? Why are we selling our rights to foreigners when in their own countries they cannot do this. Our land is being sold willy nilly, our jobs being sold willy nilly. We are sitting on a time bomb. Just what should it take for our authorities to realise that this is selling the only pride that we Malawians have?????

Dont vote for DDP. They are so corrupted. They are punishing PP for Cashgate what about theirs from 2009? The only way to convict DDPS is When they are not in government. Thats is what it is Malawi politics.

I am quite surprised as many Malawians are at why our Ministers and people in authority are selling our citizenship, BRP and TEP to foreigners just like that. In turn these foreigners have no regard for Malawians and boast that “we are poor and black”. This is why I will forever adore Comrade Mugabe of Zimbabwe and Julius Malemia of South Africa. Africa is for us. It is not for sale. Whoever is doing this monkey business should be smoked out and see his or her day in court. These cases are prolifering at a fast rate. Imagine too many… Read more »

Wait a minute, i really dont understand. This so called Mmwenye at first was found with a British and Malawian passports and he was using both. Now i hear he has been issued with a BRP. This does not make sense, by obtaining a Malawian passport that means he has acquired Malawian citizenship and how do you issue him a BRP when he is already a citizen? How did he obtain a Malawi passport in the first place. Something is wrong here. The whole system is fucked up. Somebody has to go to jail for real.
