Malawi Minister of finance who is also the Vice President of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Goodall Gondwe has hit at his counterpart in the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Richard Msowoya who also serves as Speaker of the house for being a liar.
In an interview with the local media in an exclusive interview Gondwe said that Msowoya was not telling the truth in the K300 million vehicles saga that the MCP leadership has been embroidered in.
“There is no letter that came on my desk from the Speaker requesting that I authorise them to buy the cars,” said Gondwe.
He was responding to a question that suggested that his office had authorised the office of the speaker to go on a spending spree where they bought themselves and the leader of opposition cars that amounted to K300 million.
“I did not authorise that payment and I can tell you that the Speaker did not send that letter to my office, maybe it went somewhere else,” said Gondwe dismissing Msowoya’s claim.
The opposition MCP is working hard to dust itself over reports that its leadership engaged in buying expensive vehicles at a time that the country is undergoing economic challenges. However, it has also been revealed that the office of the President Peter Mutharika has spent over K3 billion on a fleet that is on the convoy of the President and his Vice President.
