163

A fierce fire has gutted the offices of the Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation & Water Development, Dr. George Chaponda, and his Principal Secretary (PS), Erica Maganga, at Capital Hill Tuesday

George Chaponda

Chaponda’s office on fire

As we published the story firefighters were working to put out the fire.

According to reports, firefighters arrived late at the scene of the fire as the first fire vehicle that was sent to fight the fire got stuck following the heavy rains that fell in the area.

Another vehicle was sent and it arrived safely at the scene.

It is still not known as to what caused the fire but some onlookers claimed that it was due to electrical fault while others said the fire started after lightning struck the offices.

The incident comes as various stakeholders are pressuring President Peter Mutharika to fire Chaponda following reports that his conduct in the maizegate scandal was suspicious.

We will continue to provide more details on this developing story.

  6. My question to all concerned citizens in this country, what are we doing about this? We all know the reason behind this fire, we all know what transpired before this fire and we all know why there is only fire at the concerned minister’s office. Why are we sitting phwii writing all kinds of disagreements on here. Why can we not go on the streets and voice our discord?

  19. You can’t be burning every thing that evidences your crimes. Late Njauju’s car, mec’s warehouses and now Chaponda’s offices. You will say this and that but we know it’s you Dpp.

  20. apanso ambuye why…? mbavazi zikungotizunza poti ndi,atsogoleri kodi nanga malamulo adziko payiwo sagwira ntchito why mapeto ake pobisa maumboni amayasa ma office awo nanga samaopa amaziwa kuti ndalama zamisonkho zilipo apanga renovate mosavuta

  21. Surprised fire only effected Chaponda’s office?Lighting would not cause this the building is grounded, likely not electrical.
    Deliberate possibly to cover up information that in the event of further investigations?

    For now a electrical fault? Electrical faults can be seen after the fire is out. Hopefully the fire department or investigater takes photographs of outlets,

  22. Mubvi woyang’anira umalowa mmaso.Izi.All this because of stupid leadership.Had Peter heard our cry to Fire Chaponda,this would happen. This is Chaponda making to destroy evidence.Peter muthalika is 100% to blame.Chaponda was in self Exil many years ago.Peter was in america many year ago.Malawians let matchona run our affairs,Look now hw these matchona have destroyed malawi.Kamuzu/mcp laid those foundations for malawians.Muluzi with his matchona have destroyed malawi.and now we take bitter pills.Peter muthalika and his dpp have completely destroyed malaw.

  23. Kuthadi kwafika,,your political career is over you idiot chaponda.ndaliwona dzanja likulemba khoma apa.Ana amulungu sanakhale akulira asiku onse a moyo wawo.Peter Muthalika beware,your dayz are numbered,you will die in a very painful way!!

  24. Koma anthuwa samadziwa zoti izi zipanga backfire, amaona ngati tiziti atentha ndi a opposition. Akuti they are educated reasoning inaavuta pati.
