Aug 2, 2023

Former First Lady Madame Getrude Mutharika, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Publicity Secretary Nicholas Dausi, DPP organizing Secretary Chimwemwe Chipungu and DPP regional Governor for the South Charles Mchacha risk an arrest following the development in court where a whistle blower says these were the ones sending names of people to be recruited at Immigration offices.

This follows high level criminal case which Chief magistrate court in Blantyre is handling.

State witness in the abuse of office case involving former Minister of Homeland Security Cecelia Chazama and five others, has implicated these DPP senior officials for aiding the alleged irregular recruitment of immigration assistants.

The witness Daston Tasauka Manda, who is a former principal human resources officer at the Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services, told the Chief Resident Magistrate’s Court in Blantyre today that during the recruitment exercise of Immigration assistants in 2017, he received list of names from some DPP officials through former Immigration director general Masauko Medi for consideration.

Among some DPP officials that allegedly submitted the names include Chazama, former ministers Joseph Mwanamvekha, Japie Mhango, Francis Katsaila, Nicholas Dausi, Charles Mchacha and Paul Chibingu.

He further told the court that besides the DPP officials, through Medi, he also received list of names from State House, including from former First Lady Gertrude Mutharika and former presidential press Secretary Mgeme Kalirani.

DPP was well known on issues of corruption, nepotism and many other ills.

  1. Stop accusing other people for political issues, can tjis government just concentrate on how to run Admarc so that people should find food.
    Why are they still searching other people’s errors insteaf of bringing Admarc in condition or finding solutuons to solve fuel crisis that we are. Mr. President this is not the right time to accuse somebody, wake up and do what Malawians need, za Immigration anthu akumudzi sizitikhudza, koma CHAKUDYA ndimayendedwe, you are going a very crack and non passable way.

    Don’t be a coward, you are our leader and please lead by example not just lead the country to astray. We votwd for you inorder to find refuge, but now instead of refuge we are refugees in our own country.
