MZUZU(MaraPost)–Barely a day after Malawi’s business tycoon Osward Lutepo handed himself to police in connection to the looting and plundering of public resources, fugitive Pika Manondo who is believed to be chief suspect in the shooting of Malawi Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo has emulated the same.
Manondo handed himself to the police on Thursday at Songwe border.
“I am about to hand myself to the police here. I don’t give a damn about anything,” Manondo told ZBS before he handed himself to the police.
On Tuesday, the police confiscated his US$184,000 in a safe deposit box at First Merchant Bank in Lilongwe.
In a related development, former Justice Minister Ralph Kasambara has been arrested in Mzuzu.
Impeccable sources indicate that Kasambara has been arrested Friday morning and was immediately transferred to Lilongwe.
The arrest comes just few days after the police searched at Kasambara’s residence in Lilongwe in relation to the shooting of budget director Paul Mphwiyo.
Meanwhile, the Common approach to budget support (Cabs) donors have announced the withholding of their financial support following the ‘Cash-gate scandal’.
