Agriculture minister George Chaponda, who is restricted by the courts from carrying out his work, is believed to have left the country for official duties in Germany, Capital FM investigations can reveal.

This is contrary to earlier reports that Chaponda was complying with the ruling.

Chaponda is barred from discharging his duties as Cabinet Minister until investigations into how ADMARC procured maize from Zambia are completed.

There are suspicions of corruption in the deal where Chaponda and ADMARC CEO Foster Mulumbe are implicated.

Impeccable sources have told Capital FM that the suspended minister left the country through Kamuzu International Airport.

According to our sources, Chaponda flew out on Thursday in the afternoon on South African Airways.

Capital FM also understands that the Ministry’s spokesperson, Hamillton Chimala is currently in Germany and is expected back in the country on Wednesday.

When contacted to shed more light on the matter, government’s Chief Secretary Lloyd Muhara, hung up on the reporter that attempted to have a phone interview with him

The commission of inquiry on the ADMARC maize scandal is revealing that they are getting useful information, which could help them unearth the truth.

Instituted by President Peter Mutharika, the commission has been requesting the public to come forward with information on the maize gate scandal.

It is being chaired by retired Chief Justice Anastasia Msosa.

Following the development calls have been getting louder for the Minister of Agriculture to step down and pave way for investigations.


Civil Society leaders sought the court intervention whose ruling will be made on 31st January in Mzuzu.
