Warrant of arrest for former president Joyce Band is still alive and valid -Government

The government says the warrant of arrest for former President Joyce Band is still alive and valid.

Addressing the media today, Minister of Information Henry Mussa has said Mussa said this at a press briefing held in Lilongwe.

He was accompanied by Minister of Finance Goodall Gondwe and Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Samuel Tembenu.

The three cabinet ministers took turns explaining that in the fullness of time Joyce Banda will face the law.

Mussa said the government has been forced to comment on the issue following continued political statements by both JB and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera insinuating that JB is innocent on the plunder of the public funds known as Cashgate.

On his part, Tembenu pointed out that the government is using a prosecution strategy to handle Cashgate cases adding that contractors were first to be prosecuted followed by civil servants and politicians are next in line.
