MAIZEGATE: PRESIDENTIAL INQUIRY COMMISSION HANGS CHAPONDA

4

The Presidential inquiry commission that was appointed by President, Mutharika to probe the maizegate has 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 the will look into the report and take the necessary action soon.

Next week the parliamentary joint committee probing the same maize scandal is expected to present findings of its investigations in parliament.
