…give me names in 24 hours

Mutharika facing impeachment calls

Mutharika goes angry on Kamlepo.

The Malawi leader Peter Mutharika has given opposition People’s Party (PP) lawmaker Kamlepo Kalua a 24 hour ultimatum to submit names of cabinet ministers involved in the MK577 billion cashgate scandal from 2009 up to 2012.

The development comes after Kalua blamed Mutharika for “lying” that he does not have the names of ministers believed to have had a hand in financial mismanagement during the three year period.

During MBC TV’s program “Talk to the President” Mutharika said he is waiting for the names so that the necessary investigations could be initiated.

Kalua who is also vice chairperson of Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee said he has names and so does Mutharika.

“We have the names. The President also has the names and he is lying when he says that he has no names, he has all the information,” said Kalua on the local press.

Kamlepo Kalua

Kalua asked to name the corrupt ministers.

But speaking at the official opening of Sugar factory in Salima on Monday, Mutharika said Kalua should submit the names of cabinet ministers who are said to have stolen money from the public purse within 24 hours.

He further cautioned Kalua to “shut up” his mouth if he knows he has no evidence about ministers whom he claimed stole money from public coffers.

The Malawi leader came under serious criticism for shielding seven cabinet ministers who are said to have stolen money from taxpayers’ wallet.

Political analysts in the country claimed that Mutharika’s reluctance to crack down on corrupt cabinet ministers was because his brother late President Bingu wa Mutharika has been implicated in the audit report.

  6. We should learn to respect our leaders. It is disheartening to note that some of those who are commenting such kind of obscenity here are Christians who know the bible very well. As patriotic Malawians let us remember that we cannot build a harmonious society with this kind of shallow mindness openly paraded here. If ngati mukuganiza kuti kukonza zinthu ndikudziwa kuthira phuzo atsogoreni no that God will turn away from you and this country.

  14. make sensible comments otherwise you also show that you are useless like Kamlepo. the day i heard he had won the member of parliament seat i new confusion had found its way in parliament. if there are indeed people who have stolen let the blame not go to the president. how can the president fire people before the names are released officially? shame

    • They gotta get punished!………..and more punishment is on its way until 2019.Where in the world have you ever heard a president of a country telling his people to stop complaining about hunger and high commodity prices by saying we have a lot of grasshoppers and rats go catch it? Anya awona!!Professor woyeeee!! Yemweyo.
