Following the completion of audit report which reveals Malawi President fraudulently transferred 25 billion kwacha out of Malawi to Asian nations sources have said Peter Mutharika and his Minister of Finance Goodall Gondwe are threatening international auditors not to release the report unless APM’s name is not included.
One of the auditors based in Malawi has disclosed, ” We presented the report to honourable Goodall Gondwe the Minister of Finance and since then we have been told there is something that needs to be changed. We have been told to not go ahead releasing this report to any other person as the report may have serious political implications because the head of state is involved.”
Minister of Finance Goodall Gondwe told parliament the report will be available to them in due course but reliable sources in the ministry of finance have said, “the plan is to edit the report so donors and parliament are left confused but the auditors are having none of that.”
An international auditing firm Pricewaterhouse sanctioned and funded by Germany government and the European Union in its report has mentioned Mutharika as the godfather of cash gate looting in government around 2011.
The report says USD250 million was looted and is stuck in foreign banks owned by the President and his family.
Currently members of parliament have called on Mutharika to attend a parliamentary session in order to answer serious questions.
More information indicates the Pricewater reports is pregnant with evidences of Mutharikas’ activities especially their banking practices in foreign countries.
Two ministers have been implicated in the scams. Henry Mussa and George Chaponda are said to have been sent to bank the money for the Mutharika’s.
