Moses Khombe A Right Hand Man To President Chakwera Facilitated K30 Billion Deal With Barkaat

A man who facilitated the $750 million (K767 billion) fertilizer deal between the Malawi Government and Barakat Foods Limited of the United Kingdom is being grilled by a joint Parliamentary Committee this evening.

Moses Khombe who owns Sheba Oil Gas Limited has told the committee that his role was only to market products of Barakat Foods Limited after he got information that the supplier Barakat has ever supplied 50,000 metric tonnes of fertilizer to South Africa and that convinced him that the company can supply 25,000 metric tonnes of the fertilizer to Malawi Government.

He went on to say he doesn’t even know whether after introducing the seller to the Ministry of Agriculture there was a contract signed or not.

The Parliamentarians, however, are not convinced by his answers saying Khombe is lying to the committee because he keeps contradicting his responses.

In the meantime, the committee feels Khombe betrayed Malawians as he was the one who introduced Barakat Foods Limited to Malawi.
