Money exchanged hands in Zambia maize deal- Chishimba

11

The opposition leader in Zambia, who is also the president of the United Peoples Progressive Party, Saviour Chishimba has told the Malawi parliamentary committee probing maizegate that money exchanged hands between Admarc and ZCF.

Speaking to the Inquiry committee , Chishimba said that the whole maize deal was marred with corruption.

“Government officials from both sides knew what they were doing, their aim was to enrich themselves in the deal,” he said.

He added that a letter of credit from Malawi was presented to ZCF on July 26, meaning that money exchanged hands.

“A letter of credit when presented to the bank is cashed within a day and here money in fact billions exchanged hands.

“What governments of Zambia and Malawi are saying is just mere propaganda. They want to cover up the truth and make people believe that money did not exchange hands.

“The development that Transglobe was also involved in the deal is a total lie. The two governments conived once again to include Transglobe in he deal in trying to cover up their mistakes,” he said.

He also called upon the Presidents of Malawi and Zambia to explain to their people why they allowed such a dubious deal to happen between the two countries.

“They are all to blame because by the look of things they knew each and every detail of deal,” 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.
