Malawi’s vice president denies corruption allegations of $150 million

Malawi’s Vice-President Saulos Klaus Chilima has denied allegations of corruption contained in a report about a $150m (£125m) corruption scandal involving government contracts.

Malawi’s Vice-President Saulos Klaus Chilima has denied allegations of corruption contained in a report about a $150m (£125m) corruption scandal involving government contracts.

He accused the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), which published the report earlier this week, of failing to get his side of the story.

He was named among 53 current and former officials who had received money from or helped British-Malawian businessman Zuneth Sattar between 2017 and 2021. Mr Satter denies any wrongdoing.

Mr Chilima was elected vice-president when his party, the UTM, formed an electoral alliance with President Chakwera’s Malawi Congress Party and seven other parties to challenge former President Peter Mutharika’s Democratic Progressive Party in June 2020.

“For the record, the state vice-president vehemently denies the allegations that have been levelled against him, and will welcome the opportunity, at an appropriate time, of challenging the said allegations,” a statement from Mr Chilima’s director of communication said.
