LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Managing Director of Masters Boreholes Drilling Company Alfred Gangata on Saturday, August 6, 2022 questioned Malawi Parliament’s wisdom to labour itself on private matter in court between him and Gam Fuels over unpaid legal fees.
Gangata is also surprised with the way the general public has reacted to the Gam Fuels Gas Station sale issue without hearing his side.
Gangata told the news conference in the capital Lilongwe that it was unusual to see Parliament deliberating on a Judgement that was delivered by the Court which is an independent arm of government.
He rebuked the August House for unprofessional conduct on the matter arguing that lawmakers have responsibility to serve general public not individual because of greedy.
“John Mussa, a young man from Blantyre was arrested and sentenced to 8 years for being found in possession of Chamba, Malawians spoke against the judgement describing it as unfair, did Parliament take up the matter? No, no one brought a Motion in Parliament to request that Mussa be released.” dared Gangata.
According to Gangata, the Case went through two competent Courts and Chairman for Gam Investments and Fuels Limited, Gerson Mkweza, admitted taking the Keys.
“Mkweza is trying to get public sympathy, he is doing all this but he hasn’t returned the Machine Keys, we have tried all means but he is refusing to return the keys. My company drilled a borehole at his farm to right off the MK1.5 million debt, I don’t know what he is looking for now,” said Gangata.
Gangata has since vowed to continue the fight until the matter is settled.
Last Thursday, Parliament adopted a Motion allowing the Legal affairs committee of Parliament to inquire into the sale of Gam Fuels gas station in Lilongwe.
The court order Gam Fuels to pay MK747 million to Gangata for loss of business after drilling machine keys were confiscated.
Mkweza failure to pay the legal fees prompted sheriff to sale his Kanengo filling station to settle the bill whose buyer is Bishop Simama’s company.
