It has backfired for leader of opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa as reports making rounds on social media are showing that he also had his share in the infamous K6.2 billion meant for the fight against Covid-19.

Nankhumwa, who is also Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice president for the South, grabbed people’s attention following his press briefing he held in Lilongwe last week expressing his disappointment with how the Covid-19 funds were handled.

In his remarks, Nankhumwa alleged that most district council did not receive the said allowances citing Nsanje as an example.

He further went on threatening that he will bail out from the Presidential Taskforce if government fails to give detailed report of how the money was used.

This attracted public’s attention as they started following Nankhumwa and came up with a breakdown of allowances the leader of opposition was pocketing each and every day.

According to the breakdown report of allowances making rounds on social media, t is indicating that Nankhumwa was pocketing K60, 000 twice as daily subsistence allowances and fuel allowance.

But Nankhumwa said the allegations are politically motivated, saying they are surfacing because of a press conference he addressed in Lilongwe where he expressed displeasure with how the Covid funds were being utilized.

He said it was true that he received the allowances but he does not receive his entitlements of a house or house allowance, fuel and other benefits as Leader of Opposition as it is being alleged.

Nankhumwa also said in fact the money only came to him in brown envelopes without anywhere to sign for and there was no breakdown as to how much of the money was to be used for daily subsistence and how much was for fuel.
