BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Latest reports available to this publication reveal that several top opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets have sprang up for the lucrative contracts that will at the end of the day, see coffers at Malawi Rural Electrification Programme (Marep) opening to pay billions of money to successful bidders.
The lucrative contracts are worth a whooping MK60 billion.
Emerging revelations from reliable sources has it that the bodyguard to former President Peter Mutharika, Norman Chisale, who is currently on court bail over the importation of cement by using TPN of the past President Peter Mutharika, is among the cadets who have submitted tender bids for the Marep contracts.
He has actually fronted certain dubious individuals to submit on his behalf.
Other top cadets who have submitted tender bids are; Former Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Charles Mchacha, Shiraz Fereira, ARK Agencies Ltd, Lozani Fatchi and Janet Fatchi. The money is never enough for these greedy thieves.
The cadets mentioned above have submitted their tender bids in a typical DPP mafia style of teaming up to loot for a purpose.
This publication is reliably tipped that DPP’s plan is to monopolize chances of winning the contracts as they have planned to at least get MK30 billion for party funding.
The style the DPP has employed is to ensure that the above mentioned cadets have submitted their bids.
The blant reality on the matter expose the DPP mafias to have already penetrated the bidding process with huge sums of monetary incentives in the form of bribes.
It has been specifically revealed that procurement officers at Marep, Lexa Gama and Patrick Silungwe have been paid hefty kickbacks already.
Their modus operandi is simple to help the top cadets to win the contracts.
These cadets at Marep are big thieves who over the years have been awarding big contracts to DPP thieves.
In many instances the work was never done but billions were paid out to cadets. One wonders why the Tonse Government is still keeping these dubious procurement officers.It is obvious and loud and clear that the rot is in procurement.
For DPP to steal the way they did it is through the procurement officers in various organisations.It is purely organised crime.
Social media has recently been awash with ‘wake up’ alerts to Tonse Alliance that DPP cadets are regrouping to bounce back, with many seriously trying to frustrate the Tonse philosophy and development agenda.
