The Anti Corruption Bureau in conjunction with fiscal police days ago confiscated a number documents from the office of Dipak Jevant of Sealand Investments Limited in Lilongwe, after it was discovered that he got paid for fertiliser and maize which he did not supply.
His other companies, Greenfield and Agriafrica, were also used in this dirty scheme, fleecing government billions of Kwachas years ago when Peter Mutharika was in power.
There are also strong connections of the companies with Norman Chisale who as Mutharika’s bodyguard grew too powerful and rich via dubious means.
It has been learnt that Jevant was stealing from the public through false claims in the form of interests and invoices.
On many occasions Dipak would issue a cash cheque of say ten million kwacha to be drawn by Norman Chisale.
Ministry of Agriculture raised alarm last week after auditors had singled out Sealand Investments Limited as the company that was paid billions of kwachas due to serious political connections.
Mutharika’s regime is renowned for serious theft of government money through procurement anomalies within government system.
Both ACB and Fiscal Police have not issued full details on progress saying they are still studying the contents of the confiscated documents.
