Kapito angry with Parliamentary inquiry over maize saga: they are just a fault finding mission

99

Executive Director of Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA) John Kapito has accused the joint parliamentary committee probing the maize deal of conducting a fault finding mission based on mere speculations.

Kapito made the accusations when he appeared before the joint parliamentary committee investigating the Zambia-Malawi maize deal.

Last week CAMA released its own findings on the maize deal which concluded that Minister of Agriculture George Chaponda did not interfere in Admarc’s procurement of 100,000 metric tonnes of maize from Zambia. The committee thus wanted the organisations to explain its findings as part of the inquiry.

Faults the independent inquiry: Kapito

During the appearance, Kapito insisted that there was no money stolen through the maize deal hence the committee is wasting taxpayer’s money.

“What the commission is doing is just a fault finding mission since there is no money that has been stolen,” he said.

He also stood by his organisation’s findings that Malawi has not paid any money for any maize that has so far been imported from Zambia and that less than 5000 metric tonnes has been delivered.

“I cannot comment on speculation and as far as our study finding are concerned no money was paid to Zambia,” said Kapito.

Chaponda and suspended Admarc boss Felix Mulumbe are accused of engaging a middleman, Kaloswe company, in the purchase of maize from Zambia in order to get K9 billion from the deal.

The two have however denied that there were any shady dealings in the procurement of the maize.

  1. Wadya banzi iwe ikutsamwa imeneyo, it is not over until it is over. Its like a football game when your opponent leads by 2 goals in the first 15 minutes you dont give up and say well the match is over. The inquiry is dealing with the learned and professionals when it comes to corruption. No matter how organized they were they might have miscalculated somewhere and that point is where the case will be built. If there is no misconduct in their dealings they will be cleared.

  2. Kapito can only fool those who didn’t watch the LIVE procedure on Zodiak. He was instead lectured as Cama ceo….. Kkkkkk. Go and enjoy your K23million offer to betray u your office.

  6. Bravo Kapito! u atleast lectured these learned Mps. We were told that the 2 gentlemen have pocketed huge sums of money frm Kaloswe but they r failing to bring out not even simple evidence, now they have turned procedures n differencies in figures. Auditors r best trained on such matters. Let auditors work on that after the whole exercise than waistin our resources on these #knowitalls

  7. Kapita ia right. this inquiry committee has failed us it seems they don’t know what they want to arrive at the end. all they are doing is useless just wasting tax payer money in form of allowances.

  15. Kapito is right CSOs and news papers screemed that 9 billion kwacha was stolen and ADMARC maize is expensive because of this, now Kapito as a lone soldier has proved these people wrong! thats why now the committee has resorted to procedures. Ndani wainu sanapangepo flout ma procedure mmoyo mwake? ameneyo ayambe kugenda mwala kapito?

  16. so it means he is happy about the price of maize consumers are paying? I am very suspicious of this old man. Why is he active now when there are inquiries? He was mute like sh*t when the price of maize wad announced. Which consumers is he representing? poor citizens r suffering in their nation bcz of leaders like Kapito who stand up to speak their views without consulting pple(consumers). Queue of carbage leaders in malawi who are after filling their potbellies

  17. Guys do you know that John was appointed as board chairman of certain govt instution so no wonder he is defending Chaponda on maize saga.

  18. Eeeish kodi akupatsa zingati a D.P.P? Mavuto Ku Malawi umphawii unachulukitsa ma bungwe amangogulidwa ndi andale.maiko olemera kulibe izi dziko linaonongeka ili, munalowa mbava.

    • Nanunso osamangowombera mmanja mfiti, awatu awadzidzimutsa asanapite nazo patali, pali kufoila kwa deal yoba ndalama apa. Why all stake holders involved ar contradicting each other? The MOA thru Chaponda, Admarc ceo and the Office of Public Procurement, just follow the events rightly.

  19. Kapito is not angry because of fault finding isdue.
    He was caught out that his findings were shallow and wanted t save face by being angry and accusing.
    Four fingers are pointing at him as the man who is always there fault-finding. Which is not wrong if you search for faults in things to make them perfect.
    Doctors examine patients to find faults in the body. What is wrong in telling a handsome/beautiful person that even as you look healthy, there is something wrong with you?

  20. I had total respect for you Sir which I have chosen to withdraw forthwith given your stand on this issue. Who told you that your enquiry will be final? Who informed you that your methodology was the best of all? What makes you think that what others are doing is meant to which hunt?

  21. Akapito anthu asankha kusamvera ma findings anu then inu zisakupweteken……..munazipereka kma mwapeza zonama then move away and pave the way ife timve zina apa

  22. keep on pressing hard on them Kapito. you are on your own carriber because you still stand on nothing but the truth. One day i tjobk an award will b on its way for you coz you realy deserve it….. Keep on exposing them as you are doing.
