The Acting Executive Director of Youth with Vision (YWV), Negracious Justin has joined
the outspoken law maker for Rumphi East constituency, Kamlepo Kalua in asking President Peter Mutharika to fire seven Cabinet Ministers implicated in the MK577 billion audit report.
In an interview with Nyika Daily News, the youthful activist Negracious accused President Peter Mutharika for hiding the
seven Ministers. He said that Malawians are being denied their right to know who abused their public monies and to hold their leaders accountable.
“The ministers who are speculated in the current report being hidden under the DPP’s private parts are continuing siphoning the public money because they are not being
named for appropriate action,”
“DPP promised the people of Malawi that, once in power, they would release the names of all those people implicated in the
financial scandal. Two years down the line, the administration has grown cold feet and is wary of releasing the names. This is not
only baffling but also adds kinetics to the swirling rumour mill that the list contains names of influential individuals that are
manning the DPP administration,” said Negracious.
He also commended Kamlepo Kalua for standing firm despite receiving threats from the Democratic Progressive Party.
“I would like to commend Hon Kamlepo Kaluwa for standing firm to the ground of truth and courage. The President half full knowledge of the names and must discharge his duty and let the prosecutorial institutions discharge their duties freely and
On Wednesday, Kalua asked President Peter Mutharika to step down for failing to name and fire seven cabinet Ministers implicated
in audit report.
“Fact remains that Billions were stolen by people some of whom are ministers today! Therefore I also give u 24 hours, make me
Attorney General, make me head of ACB and I will name with the immunity that comes with these positions, if you don’t, you should resign Sir!’’ said Kalua.
