Commission of inquiry on Admarc saga is useless – Malawians

62

Malawians have expressed anger over President Peter Mutharika’s decision to appoint a commission of inquiry on the maize saga arguing that it is useless.

This comes after dubious transactions were made in buying maize in Zambia for Malawi’s starving population.

Mutharika: Appointed the Commission.

Following reports of public funds being swindled by authorities in the procurement of the staple grain, Mutharika has appointed commission of inquiry to probe on the allegations that have involved Admarc Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Foster Mulumbe  and minister of agriculture George Chaponda.

Reacting to the appointment, some Malawians have described the development as “useless” arguing that the action will just “silence” the reports as time goes.

Commenting on an article that Malawi24 carried earlier on, Malawians have joined some civil society organizations in the country in demanding for the resignation of Chaponda and suspension of Mulumbe.

“Mr President, people of Malawi will be happy if you suspend those involved in this malpractice. It will be wise enough to listen to the voice of people than fearing your minister. Others can serve you better than Chaponda who can bring miseries to you and the whole of DPP family,” said Arnold Kachimanga.

While Mwakoma Gondwe wrote: “Commission of inquiry is just a waste of time and resources. This is a mere ploy to buy time for the dust to settle down. Good action was to suspend the implicated officials to allow investigations to take course without which the sacred cows won’t be touched”

MacDonald Phiri, while blasting the decision of having the inquiry suspects maize saga might involve Mutharika as he wrote “Blind-folding Malawians. Mutharika is also involved in that scam. Chaponda and Mulumbe could have been sacked first. Now Dausi what a poor minister of information, failing to articulate issues”.

Meanwhile local Civil Society Organizations’ (CSO) have demanded the suspension of Mulumbe and Chaponda in a space of 21 days failure of which they are to take “unspecified action”.

    Zikomo.

  2. It was like that in 2001 pamene Matafale anamwalira mwadzidzidzi. The then head of state Dr. Muluzi, anakhazikitsa a commission of inquiry. But did it benefit at all? I think, this is just another way of misusing Government resources, because we will never get any workable solution than to spend millions of kwachas as long as the individuals behind the scene are still on power.

  3. Playng wth our tax since those pple appointd to do the job wil nt do that 4 free they wil also get milions of tax payers peanuts .Ukathatu mano usamaswe phale

  4. Ndizimenezi a Malawi , kuphuzila ndi utsogoleri ndizosiana, inu muvekere koma pitala yemweu.kuyendetsa dziko ndi mphatso yochokera kwa mulungu osati zamaphuzilozi ai, ndiye Zimbabwe Idakakhal yolemera kwambiri chifukwa Mugabe ndi President ophuzira kwambiri mu Africa ndipo Ali ndi ma degree 7

  5. Demo.organisers,Activists,PAC,take us to the streets,Chaponda should step down.We dont want him to run our affairs.He can stay with his Dpp but let him stay away from Govt duties.Malawi has turned out to be a laughing stock.The world over knows that malawi is governed by Thieves,Liars and malawians are glorifying Thieves.Shame,Wake-up malawi plse

    • Chirwa Edward ndi ma demo angati achitika mmalawi muno? What am trying to say is, olo anthu achite ma demo palibe chomwe chimasintha, may be alternative is to wailt 2019. After all is not very far from now.

    • Ok,then lets start campaigning against Dpp Thieves.Surely ,2019 should be unique year that the world should see that malawians have swept away all Thieves .No more Thieves to run our affairs beyond 2019.

  6. Amalawi tinafatsa mopusa its high tym we put these politicians to the sword,i mean real sword.Malawi needs action ryt now not mere talk….how i wish i had a silencer,the gun yes.

  7. Malawi walero, I there’s nothing positive that the govt side can do…. Kkkkk. Ine phee ku ganyu wanga 2 feed my family then what I knw is that in 2019 God wl give us a leader and others wl cry loudly ‘Abela!! Tigawene dziko’….kkkkkkk

  8. malawians we just talk without any actions even our readers know that this commission of inquiry is a way of buying time cause malawians will talk and give up. these people needs people who can act cause they don’t know angry malawians are.

  9. When opposition leaders chat on whatsapp, they are arrested and police investigations take forever to conclude.These dpp thugs pretending as leaders openly steal gorvenment money instead of arresting and trying them, their president appoints a useless commission of inquiry.This commission will waste public money and finally as expected clear these thugs of any wrongdoing. What special is Chaponda that he never faces a cabinet chop, despite being the most scandalous minister atleast in modern history?

  10. I feel very sorry for Malawi.George Chaponda is one of the founders of DPP and Peter came in because of his late brother.Therefore,he has no powers to fire the owner who found the party.Chaponda with his big foot apondapo zonsenzo a Peter angokhala phwii.Why commission while in Zambia they have made it public on the people who played the tricks on tax payers money.May be Chaponda is immuned.DPP make this known to Malawians.

  11. APM z nt a leader,,,anangopezerapo mwai okhala pamene ali paja jst bcoz of hz bros + our blindnes as malawians,nde kuthana nazo zonsezi pofunika kut he shud jst step down,coz akapta mbava zonsezi zdzimulondola pambuyopo

  12. I trust Annastazia msosa, she is a patriotic malawian. As long as there is no political interference, she will come up with the rightful report. But the problem lies to the appointing autholity. This man called peter mutharika is not serious when it comes to fighting corruption, more especially dpp pple are involved.
