Gondwe Implicated In Mulli’s Bus Depot Gate

A second witness, former Chief Executive Officer for Public Private Partnership Commission, Jimmy Lipunga, has implicated the Treasury for not following procedures in the transactions of giving bus depots to National Bus Company, owned by businessman Leston Mulli.

Appearing in court on Tuesday in Lilongwe, Lipunga told the court that it was the then Minister of Finance who made the decision to give the depots to National Bus Company.

He said the involvement of the commission in the process does not mean it was behind the decision to give the private company the depots.

“For the government to make its decisions, it had to use an entity, in this case it was the commission that was used to write letters issuing the depots to National Bus Company.

“We objected from the onset that the government should not enter into this agreement,” Lipunga said.

Representing the State, Attorney General Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda said it was sad that no procedures were followed when the depots were given to National Bus Company.

He said according to the witness, the whole process was to be made public and to invite bidders, a thing which did not happen.
