Share the story

Parliament has been suspended for a second time today to facilitate the printing of a supplementary order paper to include a Private Member’s motion by the member for Dowa West Abel Kayembe who is questioning the selling of Gam Fuels gas station at Kanengo in Lilongwe.

This follows the business committee’s resolution that the issue cannot be discussed in Parliament since the matter is in court.

Backbenchers from both sides of the House however insisted to discuss the issue.

According to reports, Alfred Gangata of Masters Boreholes Drilling Company owed Gam Filling Station K1.5 million worth of fuel. After failing to settle the bill, Geleson Mkweza proceeded to confiscate keys for a borehole drilling machine belonging to Gangata.

After the issue went to court, The High Court ruled that the service station be seized after the owner, Mkweza, is said to have failed to settle K747 million legal fees to Masters Drilling Company for loss of business.

Reports indicate that Gangata has sold the filling station to Simama Group of Companies within the period in question.
