Malawi: The Forensic Audit files seen by DPP officials clearly show that high profile government officials and senior People’s Party leaders are major beneficiaries of the looted Cashgate money .

Democratic Progressive Party DPP says plans by government to dispose the 5 cashgate buses that are currently being kept at the National Police Headquarters is a deliberate move by President Joyce Banda administration in order to fulfill the intended plans to use the buses for campaign.

The buses that currently no one has claimed ownership were bought by Ministry of Tourism using the Cashgate money

Director of Public Prosecution is on record to have suggested that the 5 Cashgate buses may deteriorate hence the need to treat them as perishables

But DPP says it is shocked with the government plans. The buses are assets from Cashgate, suspects have not yet taken a plea and the buses have not yet been presented as exhibits. They are trying to get rid of physical evidence.

DPP officials have since described the move by government as unfortunate and will openly put to shame people in people’s party hierarchy who have already been implicated in the scam.

“The Forensic Audit files that are in our possession clearly show that high profile government officials and senior People’s Party leaders are major beneficiaries of the looted Cashgate money” said a DPP official

DPP is aware that if the buses are to be disposed off, government has plans to organise fake sale by tender so that the buses are returned to People’s party. The bidding processing is already decided. It is a ploy to legitimize the grabbing of the buses.

DPP Secretary General has expressed concerns on how government is handling Cashgate issues saying it is raising a lot of questions on whether government will at all manage to prosecute people that are involved in the scam and recover the monies stolen.

When the cases on Cashgate scam commenced government promised to speed up the trials by moving several judges to Lilongwe but up to now none of the suspects’ trials has been concluded.

Democratic Progressive Party has suggested for government to hire independent prosecutors out side PP government to take full charge of Cashgate prosecution. As of now, the entire prosecution exercise is simmering into a calculated sham.
