Dear judge Mbadwa,
The story about billions of kwacha being spent on Mobera University should not shock or anger anyone, my lord. As the name of the university suggests, the People’s Demagogic Party (PDP) government created Mobera (an avenue of theft) as a conduit for diverting taxpayers’ money into the accounts of you know who.
My lord, the Mobera University saga sounds like a work of fiction. It is actually a wonderful work of art that the PDP would, without shame, (if I may try to sound like some amateur computer expert), claim it was completed in virtual form and would be ready for downloading from its cloud storage in few years time.
The progress which is not showing on the ground remained the figment of imagination of the PDP people who benefitted from the allocation Mobera was getting year in and year out.
The truth of the matter is that Mobera was not going to be translated into reality as long as the PDP ruled Nyasaland because there was no political will to have it started and be completed anyway.
But there was commitment to pay people for not doing anything as long as they in turn fattened the wallets of the officials who gave them the work.
My lord, the people who were paid for doing nothing should not be left scot free while those controlling officers who oversaw the abuse should face the wrath of the law.
While am I writing you instead of formally making an application in your court on this matter?
Well my lord, I am waiting for the new director of public prosecution Stephano Kambalame to scrutinise the file on Mobera before we apply to your court.
The bottom line, however, is that there are several Mobera (conduits of theft) that need to be revisited and the implementers taken to account for fooling Nyasas.
My lord, I want to let you know that we have instituted an audit into the work of the Nyasaland Universities Development Programme which has been operational since 2014 and cannot show us any tangible developments it undertook.
All other Moberas which received funding and implemented nothing despite exhausting the allocations will be reexamined.
I remember how the PDP government kept shifting goal posts on the new Kabula Police Station project whose soil tests alone cost taxpayers about half a billion. I hear the designs of the station have since been changed as the project that stalled for years is now in full swing.
It is my hope that the Tokha Alliance will not create a Mobera of its own. Meanwhile, citizens are keen to know the people who are now being awarded contracts in this government otherwise history has taught us that there are a lot of thieves out there ready to feast on where they did not sow.
See you soon in court,
