It has come to our attention that paid operatives in Malawi are peddling lies
that our Chairman, Mr. Simbi Phiri has been arrested in South Africa.
allegations are totally untrue, malicious and intended to bring into disrepute
the good character of Mr.Simbi Phiri and Khato Civils.
An arrest of a man of Mr. Phiri’s stature would obviously be carried by South
Africa’s main stream and International media and in any case, such was the
case, the information would be public and would be independently verifiable
through the South African court systems.
I want to put on record that Mr. Phiri
has not been arrested nor has he ever been questioned by any law
enforcement agencies here in South Africa.
We are convinced that the fabrications are emanating from unprofessional
conduct by some rogue elements within Malawi who are hell bent on
tarnishing our good image and reputation of Mr. Simbi Phiri. Such statements
that are directed to Khato Civils and Mr. Phiri are misleading and devoid of the
truth and once more shows that there are individuals who have ulterior-
motives to scandalize and bring Khato Civils name into disrepute
It’s a known fact that there are key leading politicians and officials within
Malawi who for some reason don’t like Khato Civils and they will do everything
possible to discredit us.
We urge the owners of the media houses to immediately remove such
malicious allegations from their media platforms, failing which we will take
legal action against these institutions and individuals.
We therefore urge the public to look at this false and malicious story for what
