'Cashgate' corruption scandal rocks Malawi

'Cashgate', the biggest financial scandal in Malawi's history, has affected the country's relations with donors and caused outrage among Malawians.

Allegations of the massive looting of government money became public following the shooting of the finance ministry's then budget director Paul Mphwiyo in September 2013.

Just days before, a junior civil servant was allegedly found with bales of cash totalling more than $300,000 in the boot of his car.

The BBC's Nomsa Maseko reports from Lilongwe.
