Everton Chimulirenji who was the de-facto Vice President of Malawi from May 2019 to
February 2020 and former Minister
of Disaster Management Affairs and Public
Events has been implicated in a K76 million fertiliser scandal.

A statement from the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) indicates that on September 4 2020, the graft bursting body received an allegation that in the 2019/2020 fiscal year, Chimulirenji, abused his office to influence Chief Commissioner of Prisons, Grace Wandika Phiri to instruct a Malawi Prison Service procurement officer to award a contract worth K200 million for the supply of fertiliser to Optichem without following procedures.

A thorough investigation by ACB established that Priwil General Dealers, a company belonging to Prince Henderson and Willy Herbert Chimulirenji of Lilongwe, uttered false documents from Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Catholic Development Commission of Malawi (CADECOM), Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and FDH Bank, in their bid document to win a contract to supply fertiliser worth K76 million to Malawi Prison Service.

“The investigation also established that Henderson independently compiled the bid document with very minimal consultations with his partner, Willy Chimulirenji,” reads the statement in part.

The bureau has since arrested Henderson for giving false information to a person employed in the public service and uttering false documents.

“Henderson will be taken to court after the bureau finishes interviewing him,” said Ndala.
