‘Mutharika has failed to handle Cashgate cases’-MCP

186

As the year 2015 draws to a close, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has expressed its concerns over the way the Malawi government has handled cashgate cases during the year.

According to the party’s spokesperson, Jessie Kabwila, the party feels that the Peter Mutharika led government has completely failed to properly handle the cases saying they observed an aspect of favouritism.

Kabwila: Govt didn’t do enough.

However, Kabwila acknowledged the arrests that have been made over the year but she said government has failed to arrest some officials who are being suspected to have played a role in the theft of the money.

She further said that the punishment that has been given to the cashgate convicts by the Malawi courts is not even as stiff as expected.

Kabwila added that it is worrisome that the theft of government money led to suspension of aid from donors and this has led to the worsening of the country’s economic situation.

She then advised government that in 2016 it should do all its best to investigate and have all implicated officials nabbed regardless of their positions in the current administration.

Over 70 people are answering miscellaneous charges related to the scandal.

  1. Koma anthu ena mulibe zelu Kodi ma jage ali m bona landani, amalawi tili boma landani ???? La dpp lovetsa chisoni kumayenda mkumaonako shaky amichombo , gati ulibe cholemba zigonani mupumuleko

  2. Alwys finding faults. How can this country develop with such power hungry people. Up to now you havent accepted that elections were over and u lost. Have you ever commended this gvt when it has done something good? Fed up with nonsense criticism.

    • There is sense in what we always take to be nonsense… For calling something as such..means that we have understood something which is not compartible enough with what we think or feel is the right way of thinking…
      What Kabwila has said has alot of sense to those who want the government to take a step further in bringing to book all the cash-gaters.
      Not all critics are negatives…Malawians must therefore learns to take critisms positively…for he who opposes your way…. Helps you to perfect your way…..

  3. Jessie Kabwira is an educated fool. she should tell us how Chakwera would have handled the case apart from trusting the Police, ACB, and the Judicially?

  11. There is seperation of powers mind you ,as long as he is not interfering in the matters that are in court he showders no blame. He is not the judge neither the investigator.

  12. We Malawians are a pathetic lot. We behave as if we eat politics. Our minds are so tainted with politics that if someone gives you nsima you will first examine it from the political angle before eating it insteat of just taking as goodwill. This mindset can not move malawi forward even though we all need to move forward.

  13. Hey! Good people of MCP, the best thing you can do for us ordinary citizens of this great nation is to keep your position as main opposition party, don’t ever think of ruling this country again because this is impossible dreams, the same as waiting for a ship at the airport. This is clean people’s bussiness- madam Kabwila avoid cheap politics

    • Check Facts With the courts. The case was concluded and the accussed were declaired innocent. In 1997 Muluzi as a president ordered that all cases against kamuzu should not proceed and be withdrawn. Check the facts please! #kaliati Kumbutsaniko Mulandu Wa Kaliati Mzanu Wogona Ndi Mwana.

    • #kaliati I like your word “saint”. Let me tell you that there is no saint under the sun and worse there is no political party that is saint. Hence once you want to argue you need to use facts not emmotions and lies. For example mcp has right to remind dpp. We have so many caes like chasowa case, keza case , 1.4 billion case, kaliati nyika corruption case, Noel Masangwi MRA case, and many other cases. Cashgate is just a drop of these cases all affecting malawian. Let also pin point that the office of the president has power to withdraw or pardon the offenders. Hence muluzi was not wrong to withdraw all cases against kamuzu. Bingu did for Thomson, Roy Commzy, Matumula, And Many Others. Joyce Banda Pardoned Ta Nyambi Of Machinga Who Was Serving For Murder. This pardon caused some riots that led some prisonners at zomba causing havoc and some were shot by prison officers. Let us avoid being egocentric.

  18. ambiri mukungobwebweta apa kodi Petulo ankanena chani cashgate mmene ankapanga campaign???Ankakambiranji ngat amadziwa kuti iyeyo siwa judiciary??akuyenera kukwaniritsa zomwe analonjeza tikufuna amene anaba 92billion amangidweso osamangomanga ti anthu topanda pake pamene amene anaba phwamwamwa aliphe apa

  23. MCP be serious. many cashgaters have been given their sentences and to say DPP govt has not handed well the cases that is a complete fallacy. here in malawi cases do take a long period of time due to shortages of lawyers and many cases that courts do have. therefore i see no sense in criticizing the DPP govt. on this may be if it critizes it on other issues i may agree with them but this one is a false one. even during joyce banda’s term only 2 out of all suspects were convicted and sentenced.

  24. amayi inu mulibe manyazi this work siya mr president ngati mwasowa zokamba mugokhala kumanya xmas osati muzikamba khani zoduka mutu alekeni ajudicialy agwire ntchito yawo.

  25. In political science the government is the working agency of the state and the government is divided into three pillars the executive which makes policies the legistrature which makes laws and judiciature . which interprets the law, in a state there has to a separation of powers between these pillars and therefore the MCP’s argument is gross misunderstanding of what politics is all about.

  35. MCP don’t lie to us its the courts that are handling these cases not APM .mind you we are in a democratic world where a president can’t be a judge and jury. You are telling us that you will be judges and juries when we usher you into power? Courts are another independent arm of government & let them do their work independently.
