Information sourced by FaceofMalawi indicates that chief cashgate thief Oswald Lutepo is currently dumped at Mikuyu Juvenile Rehabilitation Centre in Zomba.
Prison authorities confirmed of the development in an interview with one of the local daily papers in the country.
Zomba High Court Judge Redson Kapindu slapped Lutepo with 11 years jail sentence for his involvement in the plunder of public funds at Capitol Hill dubbed Cashgate.
Speaking after his sentencing, Letepo expressed shock, saying he expected a lenient sentence from the court after he pleaded guilty and helped the State with necessary information.
He said the court did not consider his mitigating factors, among them being a first offender.
Letepo also disclosed plans of appealing against the sentence through his lawyer Oswald Mtupila.
Meanwhile Lutepo is yet to make an appeal on the sentence.
