346

The Malawi Police Service (MPS) has obtained a warrant of arrest against former President Joyce Banda in connection with the cashgate scandal.

MPS National Spokesperson James Kadadzera has confirmed to Malawi24 that the warrant of arrest has been issued against the former president over cashgate cases.

Joyce Banda

The Most Wanted

According a statement issued by MPS and signed by Kadadzera, the law enforcers using through its Fiscal and Fraud Section conducted investigations on the suspected involvement of Banda in cashgate cases and unearthed credible evidence.

The statement says the evidence gathered raises reasonable suspicion that the former president committed offences relating to abuse of office and money laundering.

“Since there is a need for investigations to question the former president on the suspected offences, a warrant of arrest was issued against her. This warrant of arrest is in force and necessary legal formalities are being pursued,” reads the statement.

According to Kadadzera, the warrant has been made public because the issue of cashgate is in the public interest.

Banda who was Malawi leader from 2012 to 2014 went into self-imposed exile after losing 2014 tripartite elections. An independent audit analysis funded by the German government established that over K550 billion was unaccounted for during the period that Joyce Banda was president.

She has been named as the Chief Cashgate architect by different people who have been convicted over cashgate.

  1. it sounds ambiguous to see ACB which is responsible for handling of such profile corruption case are quiet and it didn’t issue warrant of arrest itself. The procedure is not even there. She has never been incredibly ACB to be investigated. PAC has never summoned her yet. Who is the complainant at this stage?who is the witness at this stage?Police is acting as a defendant and prosecutor,yes? Was the police self-employed to gather the evidence gathered?at what challenge?Is this a fiscal or corruption challenge?JB wasn’t a bank. This is why all warrants for those arrested on corruption were instituted by ACB..I don’t know

Malawi Police Service,do ur work professionaly without favour,political interferance,all those concerned should face the law accordingly.Malawians want all those on the list to be tried wthout fear or favour,We want Bakili Muluzi to be tried no matter his sm Atupele is in the ruling party,late Bingu no matter is dead but truth should prevail,brutal deaths of Chasowa,Njaunju,Chaponda maize gate and JB,failure to do these honestly,i doubt if Malawians will HAVE TRUST in MPS

  19. Warrant of arrest for cashgate cases only? Why? They should arrest her for trying to set the country on fire after she tried to nullify the ballot! During elections, no candidate must be powerful save for emergencies to sitting presidents and not otherwise!

  20. Amangidwe osamusiya mwina mukumuwopatu auzen azanu athandizile aaaaaa chinathawa iye ndichan kamutengen iye akawona ngat wathawa ,,chamba kamutilen zingwezo ,,,,azayange kuno

  22. At first it was former president Dr Bakili Muluzi,he comes Bingu wamuthariKa here we go now is JB ,they stolen billions n billions of poor Malawians. Can some of tell me who have been arrested by those so called malawian police n ACB? Instead to keep on wasting Governments money by taking those people to court and nothing has happened,stop fooling us because all these President comes from the same mother and nothhing will happeny. Political at its best finish and kraller

  23. All these years passed. Why now? Who instructed now. Is police formed now. If they were there why didn’t arrested her that time? Is this campaigning strategy? What about Chaponda threatening to bring the house down if they lock him down.

    • OK then it’s unfair to other citizens when other cases are moving fast with a speed of lighting. What jeopardise justice is political interfere and orchestral to gain morale. It funny in Malawi for politician to get arrested that then after 3 yrs they say lack of evidence. The justice system is captured and its not independent. Right now Chaponda threatened that don’t dare treat me like trash. I will speak out and high profile people will be implemented.

    • Man Chimene Mungadziwe Chilungamo Ndi Ndalama Siziyendela Limodzi Ai.Mkazi Ndi Mamuna Ndi Osiyana Kwambili Timaganizaso Mosiyana Amaiwa Kukhala Musogoleli Wa Dziko Sikuti Iwowa Amaganiza Kuposa Ali Yese Ai Koma Ndi Tsogolo Lomwe Anakonza Namalenga,anakakhala Mamuna Sanakathawa Koma Poti Ndi Mkazi Ndichifukwa Anathawa,kumangidwa Kumeneku Koma Sangagone Mu Ndende

That’s my comment whether you like or not

  28. Interesting that they can find evidence of mismanagement of government finances by JB but, unable to do the same on Bakili Muluzi and Bingu.

    Oh, did the same Malawi Police solve:
    – Robert Chasowa’s murder case?
    – Njaunju’s murder case? Life is wealth more than the $200 plus millions mentioned here. Isn’t it?

    Yes, JB has to come to book however, I would love for the Police to bring justice to Chasowa and Njaunju families first and, have Bakili and Bingu pay back the stolen government money.

    JB should be prosecuted later after 2019 elections – mlandu suola!!!

  29. kkkkk koditu anthuwa amawelengela mwanbi woti nbuzi imadya pomwe ayimangilila … ndiye poti amalawi kkkk pepani tiyeni tiphunzile kuchangamuka .. kodi mmene anthu munayanbila kuvota muja pali amene mungandiuze kuti bola uyu? zonvesa chisoni kukuyikani panpando zili nbava zokhazokha

  32. Akanangokhazikitsa lamulo loti Prezident asamafunsidwe za kusowa kwa ndalama ie. cash gate, stealing, bribe, misuse or what ever you call it if the money is less than 10 billion kwacha otherwise no Prezident will come out clean

  33. Boma lolamulidwa ndi zitsiru, mkumakwera pachulu `timanga Joyce Banda`

  35. Am in support of it..many challenges we r going thru now as country r direct side effects of her involvement in famous cashgate ie delaying to employ our teachers after graduating,no medicine in hosptals…but speed the trials of chaponda & other well known cashgaters

    • Honestly though late Bingu also get invoved in such kind of immoral behaviour bt many things changed 4 good in his first term & plus a yr of term 2 ie hunger ended,,construction of BICC,MUST,BNS,MBWERWA UNIVERSITY(in advance) to mention bt a few..now lets turn our attention to Dr.J.Banda, 2 yrs in office bt she plundered alot of resources wth notable effects like linkage of MSCE,delay in recruiting our teachers,no medicine in hospitals,freeze aid by donors,mob justice rate incrieases,devaluation of kwacha, the list is endless…she shud face the arm of law, am backing it.

  36. “and then entered the same river paraded the sails, instuted the nets but never caught any fish- Simon Peter-Jesus Disciple”….

    People we are talking of ex president here not a mare person like me……do you recall Bakili muluzi case?…..,u will parade evidence ,present all documents depicting Dr Banda as a theif ….but later u will hear the state closing the case after failing to file a case against her…..watch the space………it will end as that of Bakili……..

    • ahahaha …..unless wisdom changes its thin line ………This is cashgate ….not murder gate ……compare and contrast the two…thus y u see anthu convictedof cashgate are given lessier sentence …some times releasd on political grounds…….. u recall od senzan, nd this recent one pardoned on 6th july?……cant put a question… mark…..mlandu wa mphwyo…..ukuwavuta…pati…..nanga wa jb azaukwanisa?…………Peter is not court himself court…..to convict people……see how much we coughing prosecuting anthu a cash gate …..nanga jb…..les seee as u hav said

    • Japierl u r tru jus wait n c.n tis z matter of waistng time its better to focus on our future than busy 4llowing tis wich wil end without final judgement

  37. UnFearful Dog go for bite not barking coz if it bark the person will think of defence Simuwapeza masten or muli inu mwachita kuuzidwa kuti tikakupezani tikumangani mungayandikile??? Thanks….
