DPP says sorry to Malawians for accepting MK145 million from Pioneer Foods

The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has come out of its cocoon and apologized to Malawians for accepting K145 million donation from Pioneer Foods in 2017.

In 2017, businessman Zameer Karim of Pioneer Investment sent K145 million to a DPP account whose sole signatory was President Peter Mutharika, according to Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) documents.

Karim sent the K145 million to DPP shortly after getting payment for the K2.7 billion food rations contract which he allegedly used to defraud government of K466 million.

The move attracted mixed reactions after it was revealed and Youth and Society (YAS) moved the court to force DPP to refund the money.

In a statement released yesterday DPP spokesperson Shadreck Namalomba said the party regrets receiving the money.
“After being aware of the above allegations, the DPP refunded the said sum of MK145 million to Pioneer Foods. Its willingness to refund the said money to Pioneer Foods, was out of regret for receiving money which was tainted with these serious allegations,” said Namalomba.
