APM protecting Chaponda, Mulumbe – CCAP

1

The Livingstonia Synod of the CCAP has accused President Mutharika for trying to frustrate investigations in the Malawi- Zambia maize scum by shielding both Admarc chief, Foster Mulumbe and Agriculture minister, George Chaponda.

Speaking in an interview the Leader of Church and Society, Moses Mkandawire said that Mutharika is doing everyhting in his power to protect the two corrupt officials.

“He recently said that as a President he can neither suspend the Admarc chief, Foster Mulumbe nor fire agriculture minister, George Chaponda because he does not work on assumptions, however this is counter productive when it comes to fighting corruption because the two will tamper with information in their respective offices.

“It is a discouragement because the President is believing in Chaponda and Mulumbe instead of Malawians. There are claims that Chaponda and Mulumbe defrauded government in the maize deals and they were supposed to step aside to give room for successful investigations not what is happening,” he said, adding:

“How can people be investigated when they are still in the offices under investigations? Are they not going to interfere witht the investigations? Or is Mutharika shielding them? ” he asked.

Recently, opposition parties in the country expressed doubt if at all President Mutharika was willing to deal with corruption, siting his reluctance to deal with corrupt ministers and public officials as a challenge to root out corruption.

Expressing her dismay, MCP spokesperson, Jessie Kabwira said that Mutharika has clearly shown Malawians that he cannot deal with corruption.

“He has told us that he cannot suspend or fire the officials involved in the Zambia maize scum because he does not work on assumptions but the thing is he is just protecting the agriculture minister and the Admarc CEO for reasons best known to himself.

“When something like this happens, those responsible for the mess pave way for investigation by either resigning or stepping aside,” she said.

She added that Malawians are suffering and hungry because of corruption.

“Government was supposed to buy maize which hungry Malawians could afford not what they did in Zambia. This shows that the Mutharika leaderahip is not taking Malawians problems seriously.

“He chose wrong people to lead Admarc and the ministry of agriculture and instead of correcting his mistake he is busy shielding the corrupt officials,” she added.

On the same, Peoples Party spokesperson, said that the commission of enquiry on the maize scum is just a waste of time.

“They are two people in the commission who are civil servants so the question is how can civil servants probe a minister, is the President serious at all?” he asked.
