  2. PEOPLES FREE TALK: ORANGE BANDA WROTE How Peter Mutharika and his DPP has plundered government resources. Just In one week it was reported that in Agriculture K7billion was stolen,at Medical Stores K16billion and ADMARC K67billion. Let alone the K58billion stolen at ESCOM. The Total amount is K 150billion. No any audit done. Yet the so called CASHGATE smeared against JB was K30billion with 72 people arrested and a forensic audit report. Why is nobody mentioning this and standing up strong to call Mutharika account for this? Mutharika is a thief and a failed leader thats why he has incapacitated Escom. Malawians please,let us be vigilant for our nation. Mutharika has $10 million already in his foreign account yet by 2014 he had nothing,where has he got the money?
