Malawi’s parliamentary Public Accounts Committee to summon British forensic auditors

BLANTYRE(MaraPost)—The parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is contemplating of summoning the British forensic auditors Baker Tilly in its pursuit to get the detailed Cashgate forensic audit.

PAC decision comes after the Malawi’s Ministry of Finance on Saturday vehemently rejected to disclose the particulars of the people who were involved in the looting of the public resources at the Capital Hill.

 PAC Chairperson Beatrice Mwangonde told ZBS after meeting the finance minister Maxwell Mkezalamba that the committee will summon the forensic auditors, to get the particulars of the suspects in the massive looting of billions of kwacha at the Capital Hill.

“In our continued meetings with the stakeholders, we are planning to meet the British forensic auditors. We are a committee that represents the people and we would want to do what the people on the ground want,” she said.

Mkezalamba denied furnishing PAC with a detailed forensic audit saying it was under instruction from the specially hired auditors.

“We have been advised by the auditors not to make the names public. As earlier indicated, the report with names will be incorporated in the case files to be presented to the auditor general’s office,” Mkwazalamba said.

Meanwhile, Malawi government has quashed the Malawi Human Rights Commission claim that there might be a link between the assets of President Joyce Banda and the Cashgate scandal.

Government through the information ministry says any attempt to link the assets of President Joyce Banda to the Cashgate Scandal is unfortunate and unacceptable arguing the president has been in business from the raw age of 25.

“From her own hard work, including numerous accolades she has achieved in recognition of her efforts, she has managed, over the years, to accumulate assets and afford a decent living. It is therefore incorrect and a display of careless ignorance to suggest that she has managed to have assets and decent life upon entering Government,” reads part of the response.
