As we reported last time,the warrant of arrest of Doroth Shonga aka Cash Madam was issued on 24th July,2020 and she was on the run until yesterday at 3pm,it’s when she surrendered herself to the police.
Shonga is implicated in several allegations of money laundering, fraud and corruption in conjunction with former Mera CEO Dr Collins Magalasi and Procurement officer Maulidi ,both of them are also in the cooler.
It is speculated Shonga and Magalasi opened an advertising company called D&C Brand Cloud ,which was used as a conduit for their assumed illegal dealings.In August, 2019 Mera awarded a contract worth K107 Million to their company which was illegal,an employee of Mera or his/her business associates are not allowed to tender for any contract as it is inside trading.
Shonga and others are expected to appear at Lilongwe court today for bail hearing application.
More details to follow after the court hearing.
