LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Former Malawi “Vice President”, Everton Chimulirenji is in the verge of losing his property worth over MK100 million to sheriffs for not paying back loan to one of his business partners.

The Maravi Post understands that nine months ago vice president during the Democratic Progressive party’s (DPP) second term, clenched a business deal with a Mr Bonongwe to source maize and sell it to agricultural Development and Marketing Company (ADMARC).

However, due to some unforeseen circumstances, the deal hit a snag and after some discussions, Chimulirenji agreed to refund Bonongwe an amount of money which he pumped into the dubious deal.

Whilst confirming the development, one of sheriffs said, on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 were indeed ordered to go to Chimulirenji’s residence at Likuni in Lilongwe to confiscate some property with an equal value to the said amount of money.

“We were indeed asked by Mr Bonongwe to go to Honourable Chimulirenji since he owes him money over K100 million,” said the sheriff.

The sheriffs further disclosed that they did not confiscate the said property as Chimulirenji convinced them that his lawyers were in consultation with Bonongwe’s lawyer, Lughano Mwabutwa, who expressed ignorance of the development in a separate interview.

But Bonongwe, who owns his own company, has stressed that Chimulirenji convinced him on the business deal using his authority as Vice President then.

“He allowed me to continue spending a lot of money yet he knew he would not give me the business. So, since he already knows this matter, to which Mr Ntaba is a witness, then we will just confiscate some of his property because this issue started in February,” lamented a Bonongwe.

Efforts to hear Chimulirenji’s side of the story proved futile as his mobile lines went unanswered after several attempts.

Chimulirenji lost his position as the Vice President of Malawi on February 3, 2020 when the Constitutional Court nullified the 2019 presidential polls and ordered a fresh version of the same in 150 days, due to widespread and numerous irregularities.

Following the court ruling, Malawians went to presidential polls which Dr Lazarus Chakwera and Dr Saulos Chilima were declared the winner as the country’s president and vice respectively beating the then President Peter Mutharika of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
