Minister Matola Insists On Naming DPP Gurus Involved In ESCOM-Fuel Scandal


Minister of Energy Ibrahim Matola has again threatened to name and shame Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials involved in siphoning of fuel at Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi Limited (ESCOM).

Matola made the remarks during a government briefing in Lilongwe accompanied by Minister of Information Gospel Kazako.

According to Matola, he will wait for the parliamentary committee on natural resources to present the report which has names of unscrupulous individuals who were dubiously siphoning unjustified fuel at ESCOM.

Four days ago in parliament, Matola said it was revealed in 2020 that some people, suspected to be those connected to the DPP regime, were drawing fuel from ESCOM sometimes amounting to 400 litres per day, without rendering services to the company.

Matola said some MPs were also part of the cartel which he argued has left ESCOM in a financial crisis. He threatened to bring the list of the culprits to Parliament and read out the names for Malawians to know the people.

“It is a cartel…some of these people are here madam Speaker…we will track them down” said the minister.

He then asked the Speaker to give him time on Monday, yesterday to read out the names which he did not do.
