Legal Affairs Committee chair Peter Chakhwatha has revealed that Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe and Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale are feeding Malawians with false reports, Chakwantha lays it bare on how Malawians are being cheated.
In his Facebook post, Chakhwantha who is also a practicing lawyer, says should not be cheated by the hit spin of the government.
“Malawians let you not be cheated by what just happened yesterday in parliament. If you followed what happened today at parliament at the end of business, might have noticed that I shared notes with Hon Kamlepo Kalua asking him to rise on a point of order.
“I had received the hard copy of the purported audit report which the Minister of Finance and Auditor General indicated will table as requested by my motion on 18th June.” Says Chakhwantha.
Chakhwantha says despite the Order Paper of business mentioning that the Minister was to submit a Forensic Audit Report of 92 billion as demanded by parliament through himself, in that motion in the house, “We discovered the reason why the Minister of Finance hoodwinked malawians that instead of reading the so called report, he had to refer it to the Public Accounts Committee. In fact, at the time of making that statement the folder which was supposed to contain the copy of the report, was empty. The Minister was cheating the whole house and the nation that he had the report with him at that time.” Says the chair of legal affairs.
Chakhwantha says, the truth of the matter is that it has been discovered that the Government has two versions. One is the data analysis and the other is the real forensic audit report done by the PWC south african team. “Now the government has chosen to feed malawians the data analytic report version so that we all think that this is all that is on the table”
“Now at the end of today’s business we rose to ask the Speaker’s office to rule out of order the Minister of Finance for presenting to us an item which was not mentioned nor asked for per my motion or the Order Paper….
As usual, the Ministers were actually seen giving the deputy speaker signals to quickly adjourn the house and not entertain any points of order. Malawians we are trying our best but you voted us in minority and the numerical strength by our colleagues is now working to your disappointment. Wonder why we always vote for crooks in malawi!” Claims Chakhwantha.
Meanwhile Malawians are in total support looking at some pages the PWC report is indicating about two documents data analysis and the real report.
