KARONGA (Maravi Post)—Karonga district council cash gate prime suspect Philimon Maseko on Sunday defied the court bail condition that he should not be in his office without the Police or the District Commissioner’s knowledge, Maravi Post can reveal.Maseko who was fired as the acting director of public works was ordered not to leave the district or go into his office without the knowledge of the DC or Police.
According to an eye witness, Maseko arrived at his office around 3 PM using his personal vehicle.
“He entered his office and spent almost 30 minutes without the company of anyone. But when he was coming out it really gave an indication that he was doing something fishy in side,” said the eye witness.
When contacted on the development, Karonga Police Deputy Spokesperson George Mlewa said was not aware of the incident.
“I don’t know anything about that but let me verify with other authorities. But if he indeed did that without following court’s order then it will be a problem,” warned Mlewa.
However, Maravi Post failed to hear the side of the DC because her mobile phone was out of reach.
This reporter also understands that the other cash gate suspects are trying to tamper with the much the needed information by using their juniors.
Meanwhile, the auditors are now in the district doing their job after the community threatened to pen State President Peter Mutharika as well as organizing a massive protest.
Some of the cashgate suspects include Sam Mbale (District Forest Officer), David Gondwe (Director of Planning and Development) as well as Walusungu Mwafulirwa (Disaster Officer) among others.
