Mutharika told to clear maizegate mess

…Anti-Chaponda demos justified

As pressure continues mounting on Malawi leader Peter Mutharika to fire Minister of agriculture, irrigation and water development George Chaponda over maizegate, a political scientist has urged the president to act in the interest of the nation.
This comes at a time when Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have been slated to hold vigils across the nation to force the president to fire Chaponda following reports of dubious transaction in the purchase of maize from Zambia.

The political analyst Wonderful Mkhutche urged Mutharika to fire Chaponda arguing that the ‘damage has been made already’.

“The whole situation is catastrophically building up because the President is living in denial and has party loyalties to fulfil. But the maizegate issue is tainting the image of the President and his commitment to the fight of corruption. If he acts, as recommended by the inquiry, it will be over. But largely, the damage has already been done.

“There is an assumption that Dr. Chaponda’s fate is being orchestrated by some people in the ruling party. It goes to say that there is a silent fight for power and succession. But with a full commission of inquiry saying that Dr. Chaponda’s dealing should be questioned and investigated, let us treat the issue to that extent. The issue is about Maizegate, for now,” said Mkhutche.

Wonderful Mkhutche says the ball is Mutharika’s court.

He further recommended the demonstrations against Chaponda arguing that the issue remains in the interest of Malawians.

“The national demos can be justified in the sense that this is about Maize, our staple food. The exorbitant prices have affected people across the country,” he added.

He further expressed worry that the delay to take action is making Malawians lose trust in Mutharika.

The Malawi leader has for several times refused to act on Chaponda as demanded by different stakeholders.

The development saw some CSOs obtaining a court injunction against Chaponda to give room for smooth investigations by the inquiries.

  9. Malawi Sizatheka Basi Akusogolo Dyera Too Much Then U R Encouraging Us To B Paying Tax Akudya Ake Inuyo Dats No Sense Think Of Your Pple

  10. Ngati sakuganiza bwino achokera limodzi amenewa osayiwala nkhani ya mukhito paja ankati sapepesa nanga zinatha bwanji ? ndiye iyi yokuba chimanga kaya tiona mukuchita kumpatsa dala vp metre pamenepa wina akomokatu paja mumayenda nawo mankhwala a cadiac

  11. chaponda kkkkk olakwa ndani….kapena analakwisa ndi Peter posankha chaponda kukhala minister……nanga pamene Peter anachita bwino ……nde chaponda akachosedwa Peter aba ndindani……the birds of the same feather flock togather .therefore Peter is as maizegate as chaponda…….any time soon it will be more less than than maizegate watch out

  12. The reluctance of Peter Mutharika to act correctly by suspending Chaponda to facilitate smooth investigations is only pointing to one thing – and onr thing alone: CHAPONDA AND MUTHARIKA ARE BOTH INVOLVED IN THIS DEAL AND THEY WERE MEANT TO SHARE THE PROCEEDS OF THIS CORRUPTION ACT. IF MUTHARIKA FIRES CHAPONDA THEN THE LATTER WILL SPILL THE BEANS (nchunga za msuzi wuswesi).

  13. Palibe wasiya ntchito apa kukamba za chaponda,zikutiwa coz sanabe zake ndalama koma misonkho yathu.komatu chichewa chomanamizira kuti evidence siikupezeka one day muzaleka coz God himself will provide the evidence muzakhaula

    • If u went deeply into both rwports, you could read that Chaponda was not involved in any money dealings. The issue is not about his involvement in the scam but the approach taken taken by some CSOs. Mind you am told that when Chakufwa Chihana was Minister of Agri during Muluzi tenure, his offices were alos set ablaze!!!

  14. Chaponda has provd himself that he is alaw maker strong politician,peter cant fire him without proper evidenc or pressure from de nation that is not how things works.

  15. This is a serious issue, these leaders of us only knows how to steal but they don’t know whom to steal from. Go to rural areas and see how little children starving. what a cruel the world is watching Malawi please.

  16. The most noble thing to do was to resign,but wait a minute,we are Africans.We do not have an ounce of moral uprightness of resigning.

  17. Chaponda is but a brother and the best crony of Petulo, and its very doubtiful if these thieves can catch or fire each other. Let us do something if you thing we have teeth to bite.

  18. Utha katumbu nkuvula mono,APM chita zosangalatsa anthu adziko lamalawi ngati ukukanika kumuchotsa peza mbali ina yoti umuike mzakoyo ,muvi woyang’anila umalowa mmaso anthu aziti ndiwe udamutuma kuba kambwe amenei and zamademozi uona tikubwela komwe Ku state house kuti utiuze zenizeni

  19. Kodi u CSOs what is special with Chaponda, just one person koma making u failing to sleep???? U r making him feel pompous and popular then Malawians will start feeling sympathy with him. Finally he will win Malawians votes. Watch me!!!
