Uladi Mussa has case to answer—ACB


Democratic Progressive Party vice president for the Central Region Uladi Mussa has been found with a case to answer in a corruption case he is answering.

Mussa, a former Cabinet minister, is being accused of aiding foreign nationals to acquire the country’s citizenship fraudulently.

He was arrested on March 6, 2017, alongside David Kwanjana, former senior assistant chief immigrations officer, now Regional Immigration Officer for the Centre.


The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) also arrested a number of suspects including Malawian national Peter Katasha, Burundian Pascal Rwasa and Rwandese Esili Kubwimana.

A statement released on October 28 says all the suspects, including Mussa, have been found with cases to answer.

“On 21st October, 2019, the High Court in Lilongwe found Mr Uladi Mussa, Mr David H. Kwanjana, Mr Pascal Rwasa, Mr Peter Katasha and Mr Esili Kubwimana with case to answer on all the charges. The four will appear in Court from 25th to 27th November, 2019 for defence,” reads the statement.


The statement says ACB on September 25 2015, received a complaint alleging that on May 14 2014, the Chief Immigration Officer granted Malawi Citizenship to Rwandan Nationals using a file belonging to another foreign national.

Few months ago, the United States of America barred Mussa and his wife from entering the country saying he has corruption charges on his head.

Meanwhile, on October 23, Lilongwe Magistrate’s Court found Charles Phiri, Senior Clinical Officer at Kamuzu Central Hospital with a case to answer for issuing a fake medical report to a Cashgate suspect, Philbert Mkandawire.

Mkandawire allegedly used the fake medical report to obtain an adjournment in a case he is answering before the court.
