MCP suspects foul play in ACB maizegate investigations

0

The Malawi Congress Party has expressed sadness over the way the ACB is handling maizegate investigations, claiming the slow pace at which the investigations are going might give room to those being investigated to tamper with evidence.

Speaking on the matter MCP deputy general secretary, Esienhower Mkaka said that the investigations might fail to yield correct results.

“ACB is too slow on the investisgations and the issue might die a natural death if ACB will not act with urgency on the matter.

“These investigations were supposed to be taken seriously because the issue at hand is a serious one,” he advised, adding:

“Malawians want the truth in the scandal to be revealed. We want to know what realy happened and government must not interfere with the investigations by shielding those who were implicated in the scandal.”

Recently, the Parliamentary legal committee announced that it would summon Anti- Corruption Bureau chief, Lucas Kondowe to explain why George Chaponda has not been arrested after being found with hundreds of millions in his house.

The chairperson of the of the legal committee of parliament, Maxwell Thyolera said that people in Chaponda’s circumstances were arrested in the past.

“People who were found with large sums of money be it in their homes or cars were arrested but we wonder why up to now Chaponda is still a free man,” he said.

He added that parliament did not want to interfere with the operations of the ACB but rather to make sure justice prevailed.

“We are all the same and Chaponda must be taken seriously if at all we are to register any strides in curbing corruption,” he said.

He disclosed that his committee would meet ACB officals over the weekend.

“The Public Accounts Committee is meeting ACB officials so we will take advantage of that meeting to find out why Chaponda has not been arrested as has been the case with other people with similar crimes in the past,” he added.

On the hills of the maizegate investigations, after searching Chaponda’s residence the ACB found close to K170 million starched in the former ministers house.
