Joyce Banda started Cashgate to fund PP campaign – Mutharika

Peter Mutharika

…tells Kasambara there are no sacred cows

Former President Joyce Banda who has been implicated in the looting of state funds by none other than the chief cashgate convict Oswald Lutepo has been fingered in the scandal again by current Malawi President Peter Mutharika.

Peter Mutharika
No sacred cows in Cashgate

Malawi President speaking in the US where he is attending the United Nations General Assembly said that Joyce Banda was afraid of being in Malawi owing to her involvement in the scandal that saw donors suspend aid to the Malawi government forcing the government to start cutting down funding in important sectors such as education.

Speaking at the Council for Foreign Relations in the US, Mutharika was responding to a question on his relationship with his predecessor Joyce Banda.

“I will be very frank on this,” said Mutharika. “Cashgate happened under her watch. The purpose of this theft was to fund the campaign for her political party.”

Mutharika further said that he could not send security detail to Banda who has imposed exile on herself claiming that she will be persecuted in Malawi. He urged people to tell Banda to come back to Malawi and help in building the country, apparently from behind bars where Mutharika has said will send all people involved in the corruption.

In the same discussion, Mutharika indicated that his government is serious about clamping down on corruption. He said that there are no sacred cows in the way his government is striking down corruption.

To indicate that his government is serious about tackling corruption, Mutharika referred to the case of former attorney general Ralph Kasambara who is in custody over his alleged role in the shooting of Paul Mphwiyo.

  3. I think some one should Explain CASHGATE (JOICE BANDA) and AN AUDIT QUIRE DPP. 1, are the two words the same? Or not and why? 2, The stolen money seen live and the money stolen but not seen. Which one should b the first to b followed.

  4. when shall we learn to raise decisions that can help country get developed than thinking of castigating our leaders? all these happens because we Malawians don’t love our country. when you look at cashgate scandals it’s not the eaders but ppl . for let us love our country. the mindset we have towards our leaders will never see us developing than seeing us getting poor and poor and poor.

  13. I totally disagree with this lie, these are words that comes from frustrated Prophets, Bishops, pastors, and husbands who have failed to achieve in life. They tell their congregation and their families that they are failing because they don’t want to join satanism and etc as other people who are doing well are doing. It’s high time that Malawians pastors should come out and admit that women have finished them instead of going around biting the bush.they were thinking that they can combine God and women, Malawians pastors knows how to pray but they can’t stand a body of a woman. We have strong men of God in Malawi, but they have been affected by the love of women and adultery, I have walked the journey I have seen what has been the problem in my country and around the world. You ether choose God and get the glory or women and be frustrated for the rest of your life. Stop deceiving people that those who are achieving is because of satanism.

  17. Cashgate started when Bingu was in power about 500billion went unaccountable during his tenure why just blame Joyce Banda only?missing the target!!

    1. Where was aka Jumbo ya Bonya during Bingu’s rule? The K500B you are talking about was not accounted for from 2004 to 2014; PP and JB failed to account for about K300B just within 2 years! These are facts!


  19. what about what he stole with his brother he did not explain? because donors are stuck with him now, he has arrested pp members what about his own people and him K550billion cash gate? he thinks donors are fools azadya mkazi wake galu wakuba
