Representatives of the Reserve Bank Of Malawi (RBM) have revealed that the country is losing about $980 million through illegal transactions.

In the local currency, this is over MK6 billion.

The bank made the announcement during the launch of a tip-offs anonymous program aimed at detecting fraud.

Speaking to Capital FM, RBM Governor Dalitso Kabambe stressed that the country will lose its potential for development if these transactions are left unchecked.

He expressed concern on the massive corruption scandal popularly known as the Cash Gate Scandal pushed Malawi backward in terms of development and it is only norw that it is beginning to recover from all the money it lost through the scandal

“Malawi is failing to development at a good pace like its neighbouring country’s because of illegal transactions”, Kabambe added.

The Governor went on further to say that as RBM they will do all they can to ensure that  a repetition of the Cashgate scandal or any other pilferage of government resources never happens as the cheques that were used in the latter were those of the reserve bank.

Malawi has for years been affected by corruption and commentators have continued to stress on the need for investigations into such matters to be quickly finalised so that wrongdoers are brought to book in order to deter would be offenders.

Just last week, the Anti Corruption Bureau disclosed that it had finalised investigations in district councils across the country and expressed concern on the findings as government resources are being embezzled by unscrupulous Malawians.

    Briefly after Dean Callahan’s warm introduction of Eric Newton, Cronkite students divulged into a world that surpasses yesterday and has the ability to fulfill our most bizarre childhood dreams; a world of tomorrow. Eric touched on journalism throughout the ages; going beyond past forms, he gave insight on how technological advances will change the face of journalism. Mr. Newton linked technology utilized in old television shows, such as The Jetsons and Star Trek, to devices, we deem as practical today in the 21st century. While regular people predict the future based on their knowledge, we, as journalists, must be innovative in order to create and to spark progress. Mr. Newton provided insight on future generations in a very organized and clear way. The first, which is visionary, will be the rise of intelligence in media form including, robotics and artificial intelligence. The Hybrid generation will bring about the rise of bio media, which will spark the use of media implants and will introduce enhanced human capacities. The courageous generation will be the rise of hyper media, a science fiction based type of media will emerge. The information Mr. Eric Newton shared at this Must See Monday event was thought-provoking. His level of expertise and passion on the topic he covered was apparent. As for me, I cannot wait to see what the future holds and hope to witness some of Mr. Newton’s outrageous predictions.

    This was a very exciting and promising Must See Monday, looking forward at what Journalism can and will soon be. Eric Newton gave a fascinating look at the potential of our industry. I’m a big tech fan, so the idea of having “NewsBots” delivering news and getting chips implanted is captivating. It’s a bit far-fetched, but, as Mr. Newton said, that’s what changes the world. “When thinking of the future, think crazy.” It’s thrilling to think that in the next couple years, my fellow freshmen and upperclassmen could be the minds behind unprecedented groundbreaking and innovative ideas that change the world. We’ve come such a long way in terms of progress, and most of the changes are recent. If you look back, the same medium of news delivery has been used over long periods of time, but now, it’s changing rapidly enough that new ideas are being created at unheard of rates. “Somewhere in the ocean of news is the truth, and I wish you all happy sailing.”
