Government has asked people that know they were involved in the plunder of public resources, christened Cashgate, to show up at the police or Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to save on time and taxpayers’ money in hunting them.
Minister of Information, Tourism and Culture Kondwani Nankhumwa made the appeal yesterday in a statement reacting to the arrests that law enforcement agencies, including ACB, have made so far in relation to Cashgate investigations.
Reads Nankhumwa’s statement in part: “Government calls on all Malawians who know that they were in one way or another involved in the plundering of the country’s coffers to surrender themselves to police than being on a fruitless run.
“This call is also extended to Malawians who were equally involved, but are for some reasons outside the country, to quickly come back home to face justice.”
He also asked those keeping Malawians who were involved in Cashgate and have sought refuge in their homes outside the country to comply with the International Law standards by releasing them so that they are able to face justice back home.
He neither named the individuals nor throw any hints about them.
Nankhumwa said government will not interfere with the determination of who should be arrested or prosecuted for the Cashgate-related crimes.
