More Analysts Agree Lazarus Chakwera spoke out of ignorance on k1.3trillion kwacha figure


Many Malawi analysts are saying Lazarus Chakwera Malawi showed his ignorance when he accused the DPP Government of plundering k1.3trillion kwacha which is close to the annual Malawi budget that is vetted by many organizations like the World bank and IMF to support ongoing financial assistance.

Even Atupele Muluzi wrote, Considering the annual budget of Malawi hovering around the same figure and considering that Malawi is on an IMF/World Bank program, this needs to be further explained.

A Facebook pontificator, Greene Mwamondwe wrote, any patriotic Malawian will pat the current leadership on the back for advancing to ensure anybody involved in corrupt practices and embezzlement of Tax-Payers money be brought to book. I am amongst those for such clean-up.

However, talking of k1.3trillion which according to Our HE Dr Lazarus M Chakwera, such sum is mostly an audit query. Which means auditors wanted explanations as to how such monies were expended. Their audit language is like unaccounted for or money spent without proper or accompanying documents.

Therefore, the user departments or Institutions after scrutinizing and giving backup reasons, the figure may drastically be reduced to Millions of kwachas. Recall that after late Bingu demise, the Joyce Banda governments faulted DPP to have swindled 570bn kwacha. This was also an Audit query which later was reduced to an out 230mn kwacha.

It is therefore premature for those giving figures to our President to say such moneys were swindled at the onset.

We would like to praise the Presidents efforts, but please do so with the Ralph Kasambara strange bail for over 3years to one who was actually sentenced to 13years imprisonment. My God our Judges really know their job?

How about the Warrant of arrest of former President Dr Joyce Banda?

How about the Nsundwe rioters that vandalized and killed a police officer and injuring others in the process?

Selective Justice should not Happen

We will pat on the back our Minister of Homeland Security if he will ensure all those that vandalized and broke Government buildings, private peoples Businesses and property and the like During the Opposition and HRDC demonstrations.

Selective Justice Under Lazarus ‘Kadingus’ Chakwera, Chanthunya and Kasambara running free as a bird

Yes, these should also be brought to book. Just like football teams being punished because their supporters have stormed the playing field and caused havoc. Is not the team not punished…WHY THEN SHOULD LEADERS OF DEMONSTRATIONS BE LEFT SCOT FREE?

SURE, IF TONSE ALLIANCE RUBBLE CLEANING IS TI BE MEANINGFUL, ALL BE 2WAY TRAFFIC AND NOT ONLY ARRESTING DPP People. …by the way up until proven guilty, one is a criminal yet…

Hope there will not be Counter Defamation suits later

  1. Supporting Lazarus is a full time job. I feel sorry for some people that can not see when the truth is glaring them in the Face

  2. Does this writer know the meaning of analyst? Koma mbuli zapa Malawi ndizochititsa manyazi kwambiri. Atupele Muluzi failed his law degree and as we are talking now he is a mere A-level holder. As for Nankhumwa we all know that his highest qualification is a mere MSCE with no any tertiary education whatsoever. Now these dunderheads qualify as analysts? Please give us a break!
    If the writer has issues with Kasambara why can’t he man up and take him headon rather than hiding behind Chakwera? So the writer wants Chakwera to fight his battle against Kasambala? Thats pathetic. Everyone knows that Chakwera has nothing to do with Kasambara and I would advise Chakwera to ignore this nobody who cannot even do a simple research and come up with something worth reading. This news post should be written in Chichewa and sent to the remotest of the places and may be, just may be, one or two people can take it seriously.
    -570 billion was revised downward to 236 billion and not 236 million.
    -Chakwera gave the auditors report as an example of the theft that has been happeing in the DPP led government and the reasoning of the headless Atupele Muluzi is that the budget of Malawi is at a trillion but then Chakwera is talking about theft over a period of 6 years,
    -Chakwera is a leader of executive branch of government whereas Kasambara was given bail by the judiciary. Read something about separation of powers as spelt out in our constitution.
    -Imedi was murdered by the mob during the demonstration and the people who are suspected to have taken part in the murder are already behind the bar waiting for their day in court.
