Nicholous Dausi denying corruption charges against Malawi govt


Minister of Information, Communication and ICT, Nicholous Dausi has denied claims that there is widespread corruption in government of Peter Mutharika and that Cashgate was born during Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)’s era of the President’s brother Bingu wa Mutharika.

Critics and the opposition have recently argued the DPP-led government is allowing corruption to thrive and the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) has failed spectacularly in fighting corruption because of political interference.

The government is also being accused of being selective in its prosecution of suspects of corruption, shielding those with links to DPP.

But Dausi, who is also government spokesman, said the accusations are “unnecessary aspersions.”

He said accusing government of being corrupt is “extremely very unfair statement.”

Asked on Daybreak Malawi program aired on Capital Radio recently, that Mutharika administration is accused of being the most corrupt in the country, Dausi said:

“I don’t think that is correct.”

He added: “Let’s not have a carryover sentimental that comes after People’s Party (PP) of Joyce Banda where there was Cashgate—the plunder of public resources at Capital Hill.”

Dausi said: “This government under Prof Arthur Peter Mutharika has tried all it can that we have prevented corruption.”

He said those making allegations of corruption against government should provide objective material evidence to prove their claims.

“Provide substantive, documented evidence beyond reasonable doubt that there is prima facie case [against those you accuse to be corrupt],” Dausi said.

Dausi also said it is “extremely unfair” for Public Accounts Committee (Pac) of Parliament chairperson, Alekeni Menyani, to claim that corruption in Malawi government is rampant and there is no political will to fight the vice.

“That is patently false,” said Dausi.


“Menyani is wrong…to make sweeping statement just for political expedience is very dangerous. Let’s move away from anger, vengeful or political posturing,” he said.

Dausi said Menyani remarks as trumpeted what leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera said recently.

“As MCP person Menyani is towing the line of Chakwera’s statement – Oak Lawn Towing experts have towed trailers at maximum rated vehicle capacity through some of the toughest environments in the country– full of anger – desperate of power and mere political paranoia,” said Dausi.

Chakwera recently argued that DPP members are busy enriching themselves through corrupt means and are failing to fight corruption because “they themselves are thieves and corrupt”.

Malawi Law Society (MLS) president John Suzi-Banda also observed that Malawi is losing the fight against corruption, saying political will to fight corruption is almost non-existent.
