…Lutepo exonerates Ralph Kasambara: I was forced to protect Mphwiyo

Cashgate Convict Oswald Lutepo has implicated former Malawi President Joyce Banda in the Paul Mphwiyo shooting case currently under way in Lilongwe saying the cashgate convict was forced to implicate Ralph Kasambara in order to protect Paul Mphwiyo from the cashgate.

Lutepo: Joyce Banda gave me millions to hand to Manondo

Lutepo who previously named Joyce Banda as the architect behind the cashgate scandal that resulted in the looting of over K554 billion between 2012 and 2014 testified today that the former President gave him millions to frustrate Lazarus Chakwera from winning the Malawi Congress Party presidential candidacy. According to the testimony, Joyce Banda ordered Lutepo to hand Pika Manondo K10 million to finance John Tembo’s campaign materials leading up to the MCP convention.

In a turn of events, Lutepo who is serving 11 years for cashgate related crimes has conceded that he was forced by the then Malawi Police Deputy Inspector General  Nelson Bophani to implicate Ralph Kasambara in the shooting of then Malawi Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo.

The attempt on Mphwiyo’s life led to the discovery of the cashgate scandal. A forensic exercise by British Auditors established that K24 billion of public funds was stolen between April and September 2013. Another audit analysis by Pricehouse waters Cooper (PwC) found that K553 billion of the K570 billion was uncounted for during the two years that Joyce Banda was president.

Ironically, a few hours following the shooting Joyce Banda said on 14 September that Paul Mphwiyo was targeted because he was fighting corruption. She said that she knew people who plotted the shooting, a claim she currently denies making.

Ralph Kasambara, MacDonald Kumwembe, Pika and Dauka Manodo are suspected of plotting the shooting.

Mrs. Banda, who has been on a self imposed exile for over 1 year and 5 months maintains her innocence in the multibillion kwacha looting.

The trial on Mr. Paul Mphwiyo shooting continues.

  4. This is always politics! Does this mean that the guys in the current govt are clean? Nooooo its just manipulation. Infact, once out of gov, we will hear Lutepo, phwiyo or so so says this big kahuna did this and that! so stop wasting our time, if you want to give us justice, start with big fish in govt now… not when they are out! Thats why donors say u havent started with justice on cashgate. By the way, how can there be justice with a corrupt justice system?

  12. Mlandu ukulephera kutha bwanji? Owerudza alero tatengerani chitsanzo cha owerudza a munthawi ya Yesu. Yesu anamugwira usiku nthawi yomweyo mboni zinabwera ngakhale zinali zabodza kutacha mlandu unazengedwa m’mabwalo awiri pofika madzulo chigamulo chinaperekedwa zonse zinatha. Koma inu monse mwayambira muja? Malidzani nkhanizi izi zatikwana timve zina.

    • Big man, mwapeleka chitsanzo cha mlandu olakwika. Mulandu wa Yesu unayenda mwachinyengo kwambiri. And by the way, you may be interested kuti mulandu wa Yesu siunathe even after 2000 years. You may wish to know that panopa mulandu wa Yesu uli ku International Court of Justice (ICJ)after a Kenyan lawyer decided to appeal against the judgement in 2014.

      Pa scandal ina iliyonse we should be more interested in lessons learnt and not the punishment. It’s only through this approach that we can develop as a country by learning to seal all the loopholes in our system. Enafe tikuphunzirapo zambiri pa mulandu umenewu ndipo pano tikusanduka ochenjera ndi ozindikira. Ngati inu palibe phunziro lomwe mukupezapo then you should think twice and thrice.
