Malawians can demand for PWC report - Commentator

A cartoonist's impression of the cash-gate scandal A cartoonist's impression of the cash-gate scandal Nation Publications Limited - Malawi

The public has powers to demand the release of the Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) audit report that is currently being kept under wraps by the authorities, a legal commentator has disclosed.

Justine Dzonzi, who is the Executive Director of Justice Link believes any person can ask the courts to move parliament to make the report public.

His comments come as the public is anxiously waiting for the report, on the alleged systematic abuse of tax payers money amounting to MK92 billion  that occurred during the Bingu Wa Mutharika administration commonly referred to as Cash-gate.

On June 19, opposition parliamentarians threatened not to pass the 2015-16 national budget unless the report was tabled.

Dzonzi describes the current sitting of parliament as conducive for tabling of such a report, as the legislators are about to give the government a fresh mandate to spend.

According Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President, Lazarus Chakwera, it is so unfortunate that the current regime does not consider speeding up the process insiptei of numeracy calls from stakeholders to have the matter addressed.

Preliminary audit carried by the National Audit Office early 2012 established that about MK92 billion was stolen between 2009 and 2012 from the public coffer.

So many inconsistent remarks from officials regarding the audit report have triggered the public through the members of parliament to call upon the government of Malawi to release a full report to the public as a matter of transparency.

An international auditing firm Price Waterhouse sanctioned and funded by Germany government and the European Union audited government coffers from around 2011.

Earlier this year, British High Commissioner to Malawi, Michael Nevin, hinted that a swift probe in the MK 92 Billion scandal would clear the face of Malawi to donors.

"The investigations are recommended for us to achieve justice to Malawians, we don't care people who are involved in this scandal, what we are bearing in mind is justice to the nation" Nevin told Capital FM in an earlier interview.
