Peter Mutharika slammed for ‘false’ BBC confessions

121

The Malawi leader has been criticized by former ruling People’s Party (PP) for branding ex President Joyce Banda as the master minder of the infamous Cashgate scandal.

Malawi President Peter Mutharika

Mutharika: Told the BBC that cashgate started with Joyce Banda.

President Peter Mutharika has asked donors that they should not to punish him for the sins that were committed by the Joyce Banda administration.

“You are punishing the wrong people. Cashgate was done by the previous government. Are you going to punish the subsequent government that was not involved in the scandal? In the end, it is the people who suffer when donors withhold support. What is currently happening in Malawi is very serious. We have no medicine in the hospitals because the donors left” said Mutharika in an interview with BBC Hard Talk.

The Malawi leader went ahead to say that over $60 million of public funds stolen by Peoples Party and government officials including cabinet members in the Joyce Banda government,

“We are facing very serious difficulties [because] cashgate left nothing in the treasury… About $60 million was stolen by officials in the Joyce Banda regime. Because of cashgate, donors who provide 40% of budget support left us”.

But in reaction, PP Publicity and Administrative Secretary   told Malawi24 wondered why Mutharika would ‘lie’ to the world about Cashgate.

Ken Msonda

Msonda: Mutharika lied.

Msonda said that Mutharika is well aware that the looting of funds started with his brother the late President Bingu wa Mutharika.

‘’It was unfortunate and undemocratic that our President could lie to the whole world that cashgate started with the PP when he knows in his heart of hearts that it started with when his late brother was head of state’’.

Msonda remained Mutharika that at that time, he served as a cabinet Minister and was an advisor to the Bingu wa Mutharika.

Joyce Banda

Banda: I remain afraid.

The PP has since defended the era of Joyce Banda citing that it is the government that ignited probe into the looting as well as pushed for the arrest of over 70 suspcets some of whom are sparing themselves cold nights in Malawi prisons for their roles into the scandal christened Cashgate.

Mutharika has recently been criticized by Banda for trying to politically haunt her, something which exonerates the ex leader who remains outside Malawi in fear of being arrested.

It is highly asserted that the Mutharika administration has intention to arrest Banda over her feared involvement n the scandal, something which the DPP has incessantly been parrying away.

  1. Peter is talking no sense. I even wonder why people they call him professor. Because he behaves like chicken without head. Why he talks about cashgate, he must talk about bags of money found in his brother bedroom.

  2. i remember this guy promises alot & he promise to turn around the economy of this country, bt now the qestin is (are you turning it for the good or wase??? ??

  3. chinthu china chomwe ndachiona ndipo mchoipa kwambiri,atsogoleri athu amakhala abwino koma owatsatira zimakhala njoka,anali wabwino chiyambi chake anali mpumuliro waoaauka,kamba ka alangizi munthu wasintha,chifukwa cha anthu angapo akutsogoro malawi yense ali pamavuto aakulu,bwelerani pamaso payehova ndiyekhayo angakomzenso zinthu ndinyengo yadziko lathu

    • @Ndomson. Dont u kno kuti JB reversed decisions and conditions donors imposed on Mw govt. to do in exchange with aid, to which bingu denied e.g devaluation of kwacha and issues of gayism ?

  4. Though he did not say that the truth of the matter is jb indeed a major beneficially of cashgate. Let pp tell us what she meant when she said mudzandipatsa ma dollars chifukwa kwacha ikhoza kugwa, wogayilidwa siolakwa, amen awombera mphwiyo tikuwadziwa, mwana atiyalutsa

  5. A Malawi 24 asowa zokamba awa wina aliyense amadziwa kuti JB ndi masterminder wa cashgate . Ngakhale anthu amayiko ena amadziwa zomwezo ndichifukwa anathawa dziko lokhala lawo ndikukakhala ku self imposed exile

  8. If peter wants donors aid back then he has to make sure that all those who stole govt. money from the time of bingu and to the time of Joyce face the law and clean up all govt. institutions. Even if he does that and donor aid comes in, Peter will show the whole world that he has failed to develop malawi on his own but that he depends on foreign aid. Its time Peter has to find solutions on how to utilize our own resources to develop this country. some of us we have solutions, we can help if given chance and opportunity to be heard.

    • well joyce banda claimed that during bingu time 96 billion kwacha was stolen and in the past donors stated that they can only help if the cashgate that happened during bingu time is also investigated alongside that of joyce

    • Are u still confident that Pitala can change the economy of Malawi? No, this guy cannot. He is too dull and dumb. He blames other people instead of doing the job? A shameful lot! After Bingu looted the government of billions, Joice worked hard and brought the economy back on track within a very short time. A lomwe, Alomwe mukuyiwala za dala? Mwaiwala kusowa kwa suga ndi mafuta a galimoto? DPP means diesel petrol pallbe!!! Shupita Zanu masaveji inu!

  9. wy z amai runing away from malawi?wat does dis mean?ndalama za ndege plz tiziwe komwe zili ndipo namugulitsa ndani?plz admin come forward dig out de truth of the matter.

  10. Theres nothing wrong with calling a spade by its name…its just sad that we use the situation as a scapegoat for our failures….

  11. For someone who spent over four decades in the land of the whiteman teaching white children is unfathomable that he can behave like this and expect these guys to come back and support his budget. They are reading each and every move he makes. They are not stupid. Malawians are also getting the signs now. If it was a Cheya he would have been excused. But this is a prof at the highest level and knows what happened who did it and the when and how it happened and furthermore has the solutions but is playing daft to blind foolish malawians. Its like someone blaming alcohol for his misbehaving. Malawi limba umva kuwawa kwambiri !!!!!

  12. UDF inati MCP yaba ndalama zonse, kwabwera DPP ikuti UDF inaba ndalama zose, PP nayo ikuti DPP tsopano DPP inayiso ikuti PP..langa funso nkumati ndi boma liti linaba ndalama za boma?????

  21. This President was a gay for two decades so what are you expecting from him. Gays always fight against ladies. His brother is the one who stolen billions of money. If is Jb why until today you are afraid to arrest Jb. You will be exposed by Jb. This President is having fake academics he has no brain at all. Fake professor

    • Which Bingu are you talking about?? In the first year he performed due to the pressure the opposition exerted on him. When he got the majority vote in 2009 his true colours emerged. Have you forgotten the shortage fuel and forex? Instead of continuing with the development he initiated in his first year, he built NDATA instead. What about the academic impasse?? He was shortsighted and not visionary as you purport. Kamuzu is the only great leader. Compare the infrastructure he put in 30 years with the shacks Muluzi, Bingu and JB have erected? The list is endless; Kamuzu International Airport, Kamuzu Central Hospital,The M1 road, Lilongwe Mchinji road, Limbe -Thyolo- Mulanje road, Salima Lilongwe road,Blantyre- Mwanza road, The lakeshore road,Zalewa road, Zomba road, Chikwawa-Blantyre road, The Capital a Hill, numerous district hospitals and secondary Schools, the University of Malawi, Queens Hospital, Kamuzu Highway…..

    • Bingu ataona kusazindikira kwa a Malawi ndi kuipa kwa mabugwe omwe amathandizidwa ndi maiko a ku Ulaya omwe safuna kuti maiko amu a Africa aziziimira pa okha …zinamukhudza kwambiri chimodzimodzi aliyense amene akufuna kuthandiza koma anthu sakukumvetsa zimapweteka

  26. Kodi under which government did donors left becoz of cashgate ? Ajawa ankapezeka ndi ma million m’magalimoto ndi m’manyumba mwawo aja atapenga nazo ndalama, woz d president Bingu @ dat tym ? Ngati boma la DPP linaba ndalama, pa 2 years a PP amalamulila ija anapangapo chani ? Mesa anakawamanga amene anabawo ? Kapenatu anabawo samawadziwatu ?

    • Monty the time donors left under PP,the donors adali atatopa ndi kubedwaku.The other thing why it was difficult to act was those who were crooks moved swiftly from DPP to PP.Why do you think Lutepo adayaluka nthawi yothaitha?Sikuti adali atayamba kumene but kupitiliza.No wonder that after PP cashgate we also have the MK577billion yomwe ena mwa ma report ake adabedwa kunyumba ya kazembe wa Germany.Out of katundu wa m’nyumba ya kazembe what was so special with that report?Anthuwa ndi amodzi asalozane dzala!!

    • Monty! Dont u know that lutepo saved in Dpp? Are u denying the fact that cash gate started way back b4 PP? WHY then did our presdent coffesed on BBC that cash gate started with all the previous gvts including his brother’s. Speak the trueth to shame the devil.

  30. Mr president,lies won’t help in trying to win back donors.find other embelishing words that you can use in your speeches rather than defaming innocent previous government.your old age makes you forget that the so called cashgate started during your brother’s rein.most people are aware of this !!!
