Chaponda’s office set ablaze

25

Fire has razed down the office of the minister of agriculture, George Chaponda who is currently under investigations for abusing his powers in the Zambia maize deal.

According to an Afriem reporter on the scene, the fire is surprising because it started in the office of the minister before spreading to other offices at the ministry of agriculture.

The cause of fire is not yet known as the police have not yet arrived at the scene.

Other reports have revealed that Chaponda has deliberately set his office on fire to destroy incriminating documents that were in the office.

Recently, the Presidential inquiry commission that was appointed by President, Mutharika to probe the maizegate found out that minister of agriculture, George Chaponda flouted procedures in the purchase of maize from Zambia.

Presenting the inquiry report to the President, chairperson of the commission, Justice Anastazia Msosa said that the deal was marred with irregularities.

“Officials involved in the deal including the agriculture minister, George Chaponda did not follow procedures and this is unacceptable and inexcusable,” she said.

Msosa added that agriculture minister, George Chaponda must be investigated further by the Anti- Corruption Bureau for his wrong doing in the deal.

“He was reckless in the dealings and he flouted procedures. His involvement with Transglobe is also suspicious, there seems to be some act of corruption to a certain extent” she added.

Msosa has also called upon government to deal with Admarc officials who were also reckless in the maize deal.

“They too are to blame for the mess and they must be punished by government accordingly,” she said.

In his response Mutharika said that he would look into the report and take the necessary action soon.

    A Malawi ndife anthu opusa kwambiri, how long is this government going to kill, steal and damage our properties while we stand aside and look? Timathamangira kumuveka tyre munthu woba mbuzi pamene mbala zoba ma billion zikunguyenda ma jacket yambakata komaso ma dress yaviyavi osawapanga chilichonse . Timakonda kulankhula chonsecho tili michira pindire osapanga kalikonse, Ndipo ikanakhala nsomba tikanati ndiyoola kuyambira mutu mpaka chipsepse . What these senseless leaders of ours forget is that leaders exist because of people while people can exist without leaders. Ndipo Mulungu akanthe onse omwe akubweletsa mabvuto andiweyani mdziko muno .

      I totally agree with you, mbava zimenezi zikuwononga ma office omwe anatenga ndalama zabwino kuti amangidwe , they don’t care about the people they are so selfish all they care about is themselves, our Malawi is so full of corruption.

    Now that almost every minister is corrupt, when such the pressure being mounted rages on, the whole Capitol Hill will be in smoke and we shall be left with nothing. Our government seat is monument with unique features in this part of Africa. Heartless creatures masquerading as humans……..! Dem bombocrats
