Pika Manondo, a suspect in the shooting of the ex-Budget Director in the ministry of finance, Paul Mphwiyo, has made a damning revelation that is bent at rousing trouble for President Banda.
Speaking in an interview to a local station yesterday from the premises of the Lilongwe High Court where he had gone to answer charges of money laundering, Manondo said that the truth of the Cashgate will not be known until after President Banda is no longer the head of state.
Pika Manondo who had earlier been said to be a fugitive surrendered himself to the police at the peak of the Mphwiyo shooting and Cashgate arrests and is still in police custody being remanded at a prison in Kasungu.
Yesterday, Manondo was answering charges as an accomplice in the case in which former minister of justice, Raphael Kasambara, is accused of money laundering.
Allegations indicate that the money laundering charges also implicate Oswald Lutepo. Kasambara has since denied the charges.
