Big Issue Slide, Big Issues



Vice President, Saulos Chilima, and Presidential aide, Bright Malopa, met Peter Mutharika’s wrath on Sunday evening when they were summoned to explain how they wanted to swindle the National Aids Commission (NAC) through clandestine dealings.

Mutharika demanded clarification from the two when he tried to make a follow up of a story carried in Malawi News of Saturday, November 8,2014. The paper exposed how Malopa threatened the suspended NAC boss, Thomas Bisika, for failing to comply with some demands.

A snap investigation by state agents sent by the President revealed that Malopa and Chilima wanted to push some deals through NAC which would have yielded them some K300 million.

The President called Bisika in the presence of the two gentlemen and the embattled NAC boss confirmed that the story is true.

Bisika added that the two gentlemen mentioned the President as being in full knowledge of what was going on.

Meanwhile, Malopa is likely to be fired from State House and be sent to Zimbabwe to pick up a diplomatic post which was previously given to Thoko Banda.

The meddling into affairs of NAC has attracted donor dissatisfaction as Global Fund and UNFPA are planning to put on hold their working relationship with the organisation up until everything is put in order.
