The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has cleared Minister of Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa of suspected corruption and fraud

Some organisations and individuals reported Nankhumwa, who is also Member of Parliament (MP) for Mulanje Central Constiuency, to the graft-busting body in Janauary last year.

The lawmaker, a former broadcaster, raised eyebrows when he donated an ambulance, 300 bicycles and motorcycles to his constituents valued at over K20million.

Confirming the development, spokesperson for the ACB Egritta Ndala said yesterday the bureau will come out with details later.

“I can only confirm but for the details, I need to find out,” she said.

Reacting to the news, Nankhumwa said he is yet to receive officisl communication from the bureau on the matter.

But he said if true, the findings vindicate him and that there was neither fraud nor foul play in the manner which he mobilised resources for procurement of the donated items.

“I am also getting it from the media and I will wait for communication from the bureau. But if it is true, then it is all smiles for me because it proves my innocence,” said Nankhumwa.

Asked on how the going has been for him during the one year of investigations, Nankhumwa described it as a mix-bag.

 

“When such things happen, your enemies want to take advantage of the situation, celebrate all their imaginations that perhaps you will end up in jail, at the same time, your symphasizers become restless because they really don’t know what will come next.”

 

After being reported to the ACB, Nankhumwa told the media that apart from being an MP and Cabinet minister, he also runs businesses and that he had for some time embarked on a saving initiative inorder to purchase the items for his constituency.

 

 

 

 

 

As the DPP in fighting Continues, Kondwani Nakhumwa faces dirty campaign even after ACB clears him of wrong doing in he K23million probe of the donations he made to his constituency.

 

GCK Cameras can confirm that the ACB has indeed fairly cleared Nakhumwa of wrong doing citing that the money used in the donations was legally and rightly acquired.

 

However as the campaign for the Vice Presidency of the South heats up, fellow people within DPP have accused Nakhumwa of forcing ACB to clear him a thing which is impossible.

 

 

GCK Cameras can confirm that the ACB cleared Nakhumwa without due influence but lack of substantive evidence on the matter. However as the infighting continues, there is continued mudslinging within the camp, the clearance has angered some as they expected this to lead to the fall of Nankhumwa.

A picture of Reverend Billy Gama circulating on social media is not authentic but simply an art of picture editing application known as Photoshop. 

For those in publishing industry will know how Photshop can transform or merge pictures that are initially not there. Dr Gama is simply a victim of modern photo editing technology.

This is a pure example of Photoshop gone wrong.

The aim of this malicious artwork is to tarnish the image of both the Reverend, his employer Blantyre Synod as well as the DPP.

President Professor Peter Mutharika has promised people in the country that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-led government would continue to implement various programs aimed at improving their living standards.

Making the promise on Wednesday during a whistle stop tour from Mangochi to Blantyre, Mutharika said government would continue working towards implementing development programs which have a direct bearing on the lives of ordinary Malawians.

The Malawian leader said some of the initiatives would include infrastructural projects which would not only create employment to locals but also create wealth for the country’s socio-economic growth.

Speaking at Songani, Zomba City Centre and Thondwe where thousands of people gathered to see the First Couple pass through the Old Capital, Mutharika said government has lined up a number of projects to be undertaken in Zomba and other districts in the Eastern Region, citing construction of Zomba Stadium and Liwonde – Mangochi Road.

Mutharika, therefore, acknowledged the support government and the DPP receive from the Eastern Region, saying such support was necessary for the country’s prosperity.

However, the first citizen called on people in the region to do more to ensure the party performs well in the 2019 tripartite elections.

In his remarks, DPP Eastern Region Governor, Julius Paipi assured the president of unwavering support, pointing out that the party was steadily gaining strength from grassroots structures.   

Some of the notable figures who welcomed the President at Songani included DPP Eastern Region President, Yunus Mussa, Zomba District Commissioner, Emmanuel Bambe and Senior Chief Malemia.

 

Mutharika and the First Lady were coming from Chikoko Bay State Lodge, in Monkey Bay, Mangochi where they spent their Christmas and New Year holiday and were heading to Blantyre through Balaka, Machinga and Zomba.

President Professor Peter Mutharika on Wednesday pledged that his government would construct the Mangochi–Makanjira Road all the way to Namwera Turn–Off to Lake Malawi past Mpilipili Trading Centre, among other major developments earmarked for the lakeshore district.

Mutharika disclosed this when he made whistle-stops on his way from Chikoko Bay State Lodge in Monkey Bay, Mangochi to Blantyre at the end of his Christmas and New Year Holiday.

The President stopped over at Mtakataka Turn – Off in Monkey Bay, Nabale along the Monkey Bay – Mangochi Road, Mangochi Boma and Mangochi Turn – Off in Balaka where he assured hundreds of people gathered at all the venues that his administration was poised to develop Mangochi and the Eastern Region in particular.

“My government has already embarked on a number of projects most of which have already been achieved like the Mlambe One Stop Service Centre at Mangochi Boma, the community technical college and the Liwonde – Mangochi Highway whose construction is progressing very well,” said the Malawian leader.

“Very soon we will embark on the construction of the Makanjira Road all the way to the lake; we have already secured funds for the project and we will also construct a state-of-the-art international airport in Mangochi and a five-star hotel at Cape Maclear will turn Mangochi a landing place for huge airplanes straight from as far as Europe,” Mutharika added.

He, therefore, asked people in the district to support the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-led government for meaningful development to continue taking shape across the country. Mutharika also warned people against following politicians disguising under religion as an entry point in the region.

The President described the DPP as a party of compassion and love as opposed to other political parties which he said were full of ‘opportunists, cruelty and cheaters.’

“Don’t forget what they did to you during their reign,” warned Mutharika. “The Eastern Region was one of the areas that suffered most during the one party era and don’t allow to return to that situation.”

Other speakers during the whistle-stops were legislators for Mangochi West, Geoffrey Chiwondo and Mangochi Monkey Bay, Ralph Jooma and DPP’s Eastern Region, Governor Julius Paipi.

In the their respective speeches the two parliamentarians hailed the country’s leadership through Mutharika for sparing time to interact with people who had lined up by the road side. The two (Chiwondo and Jooma) pledged support towards Mutharika and the DPP government.

On his part, Paipi said people in the Eastern Region were appreciative of what the DPP-led government was doing especially in the area of infrastructural development.

Paipi, therefore, assured Mutharika that the region would continue to rally behind the government to continue benefitting from the fruits of development, which he said, were uplifting people’s living standards.

“Would you please consider coming back to Mangochi very soon for a mass rally, people are very eager to have you address a public meeting here,” Paipi appealed.

Mutharika and the First Lady Madame Professor Gertrude Mutharika arrived in Monkey Bay, Mangochi on December 23 for their Christmas and New Year Holiday where the First Lady treated over 800 female civil servants to a luncheon.

Madame Mutharika who is Chairperson for the Organisation of African First Ladies (OAFLA) took advantage of the luncheon with female civil servants to sensitise them on the need to go for early cervical cancer screening to avoid death and other complications that arise when it has been detected at advanced stage.

On their way to Sanjika Palace in Blantyre the First Couple was also scheduled to stop by in Machinga and Zomba.
