Rev.Chakwera Accused Of Embezzling MCP’s K 24 Mn Leaving Party’s Standard Bank Acc With MK 5,032
Malawi Assemblies of God cum Malawi Congress Party leader Lazarus Chakwera is facing strong accusations from senior party officials for misappropriating party funds for personal errands amounting to millions.
Inside sources have revealed that Chakwera has been receiving funds direct to his personal bank account and during his foreign trips to Portugal and United States.
However, he has not been accountable enough to his party over these funds.
“During his trip to the US months ago Chakwera fundraised some K24 million ($35, 000) from MCP supporters there. We also know of an amount totalling K30 million which was pocketed from a South African businessman.”
The source also said they have information that Chakwera has in his account K80 million meant for the party but has never been declared to the party treasurer.
All this comes at a time when the party has only K5,032. 50 in their Standard Bank account.
When the General Secretary asked of the money that has been stashed in Chakwera’s accounts he was told off by pro-Chakwera boys who are stifling dissenting views within the party.
It is believed that with the money being pocketed secretly, Chakwera is recruiting a team of thugs that is terrorising anyone who speaks ill about his leadership.
