Maizegate: Admarc presented a forged ZCF invoice to MRA


The Zambian Cooperation Federation (ZCF) has told the Malawian parliamentary committees probing the maizegate that the ZCF invoice that Admarc presented to the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) is fake.

ZCF boss, James Chirwa told the Parliamentary committees that his institution never wrote any invoice to Admarc.

“The invoice is fake and we will investigate to find out who is behind the fake invoice because it has our logo,” he said.

He added that ZCF never charged Admarc for the maize because Admarc came with its own price.

“The $345 per tonne was Admarc’s price not ours so we had no choice to object because the price was higher than our own here,” he said.

Chirwa also rubbished reports that some 40 tonnes of rotten maize were sent back to ZCF by the Malawian Auction Holdings Limited, a company that was storing maize purchased from Zambia

“We did not receive any maize from Malawi as the AHL claims,” he said.

Recently, Parliamentary committees probing the infamous maizegate left for Zambia to conclude investigations in the maize scandal.

Speaking in an interview chairperson of the inquiry committee, Joseph Chidanti Malaunga said that they did not leave on Sunday as planned because they were waiting for clearance from the Zambian government to start off.

“We were supposed to leave on Sunday but the Zambian government did not give us a go ahead then to visit Zambia for the investigations.

“Right now we have received a confirmation from the Zambian embassy that we can go to Zambia and conduct the investigation, so we are leaving on Tuesday,” he said.

Malunga said they would meet officials from both the Zambian Corperation Federation (ZCF) and Kaloswe.

“We want to hear their side of the story since we have concluded our investigations in Malawi. We will also meet officials from the Zambian government,” he said.
