Former Member of Parliament for Zomba Malosa constituency Anderson Undani and his personal assistant Pangani Nazombe have been jailed for corruption.
Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) spokesperson Egrita Ndala said the two were arrested October 1, 2018 for abusing project materials purchased with Constituency Development Fund (CDF).
“The materials were meant for the construction of a teacher’s house at Mapalo F.P. School, construction of toilets at Domasi CCAP Primary school, Rehabilitation of Domasi- Kasonga Road and construction of Malonga Bridge,” she said.
On July 13, 2020, the Zomba Magistrate Court sentenced Undani to eighteen months imprisonment with hard labour on each of the three counts of abuse of office, theft and obtaining money by false pretense.
While Nazombe was sentenced to twelve months imprisonment with hard labour on each of the two counts of aiding another person to commit an offence and obtaining money by false pretense.
The sentences will run concurrently.
