Mutharika: Angry with fraud.

He added that they are engaging the National Audit office to provide it with personnel to do the job.

”We are now engaging the National audit office to provide us with personnel who will travel to Ethiopia to do the audit,” he said.

Kasaila further said that at the moment they are getting prepared so that the exercise should be well funded. According to Kasaila, officers found to have been involved in the plundering of public resources will be dismissed.

Recently, Members of the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee challenged government to carry out audits in all its missions to find out the extent of the fraud. According to a preliminary audit report, staff at Ethiopia Embassy Malawi have stolen over K300 million Kwacha during the past year. Malawian ambassador to Ethiopia Chimango Chirwa told local media that a lot of people are involved since the money was sent to Ethiopia to be cashed by the embassy employees.

He said: “There is a wide network of people that are involved; including several ministries.

  4. Cashgate siizatha ku malw,anthu alibe mantha cifukwa zilango ndizowawa,akagwidwa awalamula 3maths oba nkhuku 8yrs.Zopusa mungofuna kutipusitsa amphawife,

  5. That is an own making problem because most of those sent to the embassies are not sent on merit, but on appeasement for being sympathisers and bed fellows of the party, and worse for being close relations. Muthalika should not be angry or cry because this is what happens when relations and party cadres are placed in such high profile offices, moreover, they are sent there on purpose, to enrich themselves. How do they enrich themselves/ Simple through cashgating on tax payers’ money.

  6. Anthu a chipani cha kongeresi ndi vwanthu voipa and these are the people behind the cashgate in Malawi’s foreign offices. They want to frustrate APM and DPP government. Mwalephera, simungatithe ife Alhomwe. Munya, muwona mabi onya inu nokha ndi a PP anuwo. Muwonanso 2019! APM, DPP woyeeeeeeeee!
