Agriculture Minister Lobin Lowe Fired For Stealing K30 Billion AIP Funds

President Lazarus Chakwera has fired Minister of Agriculture Lobin Lowe and his Deputy Madalitso Kambauwa Wirima owing to what he calls serious problems that have rocked the Affordable Input Program this year.

Chakwera says a litany of bad decision about the program smack of high incompetence and gross negligence.

The Malawi leader says the contract which the Ministry went into with a British company which has allegedly duped government of way over K750 million is unacceptable.

Chakwera says an instituted investigation shows that the Ministry paid sums of money to two different bank accounts in different countries
He says government is working on recovering the money.

The President has since appointed Sam Kawale as the new Minister of Agriculture. He has hinted at more changes to his Cabinet to happen soon.
