Few weeks ago Phungu Joseph Nkasa released a song about Maizegate but in support of the fired minister of Agriculture George Chaponda who is the main culprit in the maize saga.
In his song Nkansa labelled Malawians as people full of jealous and said that there was nothing wrong Chaponda did in the maize gate scandal. Nkasa continued to say that to him Chaponda is like Joseph in the holy book.
Nkasa said Malawians are far from telling the truth and that they have brought false witnesses against Chaponda in the maize gate in order to have him implicated.
Few days after his song started playing on air, the anti corruption bureau ACB raided Chaponda’s residence for a thorough search and discovered stash of million local currency and foreign currencies.
A street performer Ras dema probably upon listening to Nkasa’s song, decided to hit back. In his video Dema said Malawians did not know that Chaponda was a thief and heartless by keeping money in his house letting everyone into starvation.
He said Malawian have raised a great concern about Chaponda’s behaviour.
Following the discovery of millions of cash in his house the state president of Malawi Peter Mutharika fired Chaponda from his duties as the minister of Agriculture.
