‘Just kill me!’ cashgate convict tells court

235

A convict in a cashgate case on Tuesday cried in court after being sentenced to five years in jail.

The Lilongwe High Court sentenced the convict, Angela Katengeza, to five years imprisonment for her role in stealing public funds amounting to K105 million in the scam which is commonly known as cashgate.

Leonard Kalonga

Angela Katengeza asked to be killed.

But after she was sentenced by Lilongwe High Court Judge Justice Fiona Mwale, Katengeza cried and told the court she wished she were dead.

“Just kill me, I don’t want to be alive anymore. Just finish me!,” cried Katengeza

Katengeza and former director of tourism Leonard Kalonga were charged with conspiring to use Katengeza’s construction company to siphon public funds.   

Katengeza was found guilty of fraud and money laundering and she has now been jailed while Kalonga is currently awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to similar charges.

The massive embezzlement of public funds was exposed in 2013 during former President Joyce Banda’s regime.

  8. There is evidence that the judge and the convict coluded, so that she behaves in such a way so as to detract pipo from scrutinising her peanut sentence and focus on her cries. And thats exactly what malawians have done. Let us deal with this stupid judge. We have corrupt judged in malawi. lets deal with these judges

  13. Foolish woman, you are even lucky because if it was me I would have given 30, because the 5 she is crying of is too lenient, because when it comes to her case, she has a chance of coming out through the presidential pardon some day, that will surely happened

  27. I (Malawi) don’t offer offer death penalty,even the albino killers are hosted,being given free food(once a day). So i cant kill you…or else…kill yourself…bt i would have advised u to be patience…three yrs is not too much.

  28. There is no seriousness. 5 years is just nothing as compared to gravity of the cashgate. Many people would have access to the Govt money she embezzled. this is leniency at its best.In actual sense she will only serve two years. By crying she was expressing excitement. Angella you are lucky juju wakuthandiza

  29. wina kuba Phone ati 8 years in Prisonment with hard labour….uyu anaononga ndalama zankhaninkhani zot zikanatha kuthandiza anthu angapo akufa ndikumzumzika mzipatala umu…koma Malawi suzatheka…chilungamo tikachipeza kwa Ambuye basi tiyeni tingodikila pa tsiku lomaliza….

  30. Oh! Why was she crying while some Malawians lost their lives due to shortage of medicine in hospitals bcoz of her stupid behaviour? She would have just said amen bcoz 5yrs is asimple judgement

  31. the judiciary has shown partiality on this matter.they could have given her 10yrs and above not 5yrs.and that katengeza saying just kill me is nosense.have you forgotten how you killed malawians when you swindled the billions from the government coffers?if malawi is having acute shortage of drugs in hospitals,maize in admarc depots,unemployment levels,etc its due to mismanagement of funds among top government officials including yo idiot katengeza.mxxxx.

  32. Nanga bwanji Osamupha ,zopusa zimenezo moyo wake odzikondawo kumaba ndalama za anthu ovutika kumudzi,dziko silifunika ndi anthu odzikonda ngati amenewa ngofunika afedi .

  33. Anthu inu penapake ndinu mbuzi..zaka five zachulukaso kwambili..anaba dolla zambili nde dollazo akuyenera kumpatsa nazo zaka zochepa kuti azizazigwiritsa ntchito mdziko muno…mwina anazibisa??..nde angazigwilitse ntchito ndani?

  34. It was fake why she didn’t take tamek at the same place?She knew the judgment already.It was just gimmick to fool malawians as if its a shocking news…..

  35. Zachisoni ndithu this katengeza’s case is similarly with Bakili muluzi’s case, but muluzi is walking free katengeza is jail oh shame poor judgment of Malawians courts, always defend those who’re with good profile.hahaha…. poor judge who handle katengeza’s case

  36. wakuba mondokwa lyf in prison while the cashgate pipo were serving asentence of 5yrs, the judgement its nt enough, amalawi mwatani kodi?

  37. U r luky sister, if it was that regime after Asamunda u could hv die indeed. And 5yrs is not enough according to your crime mw was expecting 10yrs and yrs above in jail with hard labour.

  38. okuba khuku zaka 12, wathyola nyumba zaka 8, dziko kukondela uku Wa cashgate Zaka 5 ndendichimodzmozi ndi nkazi otenga kulela wazaka 5 kuti asatenge mimba.munakawonjezela kuti awowo atengele chitsanzo

  43. Just kill her pliz,she stole the money that would have been to buy drugs in public hospitals,coz of her stealing it resulted into no medicine in hospitals and many people died.

    • Deal with the one that is found for others to learn lessons !!
      God wil tell Himself about that 92 billion,wait nd see bro Ebrahim Jamal ,ife ana kumasilira tea kwa iwowo ,!chosecho ndalama zakuba

    • Peter Mutharika said on radio after few months in office that he was concerned by 92 billion kwacha that was misled by DPP under his brothers leadership, why must we wait for God to tell us when the blood brother have already admitted? Is 92 billion kwacha a joke?

    • I dont trust dpp,they stole that money and he is covering it up,when he looses its when a new government would work on it bro Ebrahim Jamal

  47. No madam! We do not want you to die but realise that what you did was totally wrong and uncalled for. You need to very thankfull for being given such a lenient sentence. Many others of your kind will follow suit. The millions you embezzled belonged to the poor masses many of which have now died of hunger and lack of medicines and proper medical facilities. One by one, you will slowly but surely go down.

  48. Kodi mukuganiza kuti zinthu zingakhale bwanji patakhala boma limodzi lolamulira dziko lonse lapansi? Masiku ano anthu ambiri ali pa umphawi wadzaoneni, pomwe ena ndi olemera kwambiri.

Wolamulira wa boma, kapena kuti Ufumu umenewu, adzaonetsetsa kuti nzika zake zonse zili ndi zofunikira.— Werengani Yesaya 11:4; Danieli 2:44 . Kodi Ufumu wa Mulungu udzachita zotani? Yehova Mulungu wasankha Mfumu yoyenera kulamulira dziko lonse yemwe ndi Mwana wake, Yesu. ( Luka 1:31-33 ) Yesu ali padziko lapansi, ankakonda kuthandiza anthu. Choncho akamadzalamulira dziko lonse adzathandizanso anthu a mitundu yonse.— Werengani Salimo 72:8, 12-14 . Koma kodi anthu onse angafune kuti Yesu akhale Mfumu yawo? Ayi. Komabe, Yehova ndi woleza mtima. (2 Petulo 3:9 ) Iye akupereka kwa anthu oterewa mwayi woti aphunzire zokhudza Yesu n’cholinga choti avomereze kuti adzakhale Mfumu yawo. Posachedwapa, Yesu adzachotsa anthu oipa n’kubweretsa mtendere pa dziko lonse.— Werengani Mika 4:3, 4 .
