The three in August 2019 induced the MERA procurement and disposal committee to approve procurements worth Malawian Kwacha (MWK) 107M which is the equivalent of over half a billion Ugandan shillings to Vink Enterprise owned by Dorothy and Collins.
Various news agencies in Malawi have confirmed the development, court will on Friday July 31, 2020 decide if they can be released on bail.
The news of this scandal first surfaced on July 15 and using Facebook, she came out to clarify on the same claiming that it was not true. That was, however, her last Facebook post.
Dorothy and Herbert Shonga divorced in February 2020, which was exactly three years after their lavish wedding, she referred to it as the Hollywood marriage that came crushing from this post that she made on her 30th birthday in May.
"Who knew? From a small village in Malindi-Mangochi where dreams were limited to the shores of the lake, I would go on to become a queen.
Found love at a young age of 16, blessed with a child at 19, walked the aisle at 26 into a Hollywood marriage and watched it all burn when the woman in me grew a crown.
Scared and saved in a divorce, forced to be a mother who is a father figure. Proud mother of 3 beautiful children, 11, 9 and 6.
Graduated from the school of hard knocks, started hustling at 17, from hair braiding, selling second hand clothes to freelance Marketing.
Changed the game in 2016, hit a big money jackpot, best deal of my life and Cashie Madam was born. A brave alter ego with fire in her blood."
Dorothy is the CEO of DC Brand Cloud, a company she allegedly co-owns with Collins.
Matters of the heart can mean to be complicated, but like they say, a heart wants what it wants, so Herbert Shonga who later changed his name to Habib after converting to the Islamic faith that allows him four wives, will now enjoy his other women in peace.
