On 12th September, 2013, the Anti-Corruption Bureau received a complaint alleging that Government Officers at Capital Hill were making fraudulent entries in the Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS).
The Anti-Corruption Bureau immediately instituted investigations. The Bureau investigations had established that between November 2010 and May 2011, Cornelius Kampamtengo, Yvonne Kaphamtengo, Chikondi Chimutu, Emmanuel Mazalale Yesaya, Deusdedit Tenthani, Tendai Nayeja, Audrey Kamtengeni, Squire Chakwana, Wides Mbuliro, Tapiwa Ng’oma and Conrad Nambala conspired to defraud Malawi Government of K201, 000,000.00. They were charged with theft, conspiracy to defraud and money laundering.
On 10th January, 2019, the High Court in Lilongwe found the ten guilty and convicted them. The Court acquitted Audrey Kamtengeni. The Court gave the prosecution and defence two weeks for sentencing submissions and it will thereafter, give a date for the sentencing. Meanwhile, the Court has granted bail to Tapiwa Ng’oma pending sentence on health grounds.
