Legal and civil rights activists have described revelations of former president late Bingu wa Mutharika’s wealth as depressing especially to an ordinary person.

It has been revealed that Mutharika, who when assuming office in 2004 had declared that he had K154 million worth of assets, was K61 billion richer by the time of his death.

Justine Dzonzi, executive director of Justice Link says the issue needs proper investigations and explanation, as the amount is huge as compared to salaries and benefits that State presidents are given.
