The Joint Parliamentary Committee inquiring into the stolen AIP funds has this morning failed to meet with Reserve Bank of Malawi and officials from the Eco Bank.
According to reports, there are disagreements among the committee members on how the inquiry is going.
“Some MCP members in the committee feel the inquiry is aimed at dethroning President Lazarus Chakwera. They are also pushing for impeachment of Sameer Suleman as Co-Chairperson saying he is the one that caused the firing of Lobin Lowe as Agriculture minister and that he is planning to dethrone Chakwera, said the source.
The Joint committee members today spent almost 2 hours in a closed door meeting discussing house keeping issues, which the Committee’s Co-Chairperson Sameer Suleman has declined to disclose.
Later, RBM governor Wilson Banda and officials from Eco Bank who were already at Parliament were sent back and according to Suleman they have scheduled to meet them at a later date.
Some sources have told us that the disagreements started after yesterday’s meeting and when asked, Suleman said: “We had some issues that we could not agree as a Committee but we have managed to resolve them,”.
