Breaking News: ACB boss Martha Chizuma arrested

Embattled ACB boss Chizuma lost public trust

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General Martha Chizuma has been arrested this morning by police.

National Police Spokesperson Peter Kalaya confirmed Chizuma’s arrest.

This publication understands that Chizuma is being kept at Namitete Police station, Mchinji.

According to her lawyer Martha Kaukonde, police arrested her around 4 am.

Kaukonde says she is still verifying details and circumstances around the case but says she understands the arrest is in relationship to the leaked audio clip in which Chizuma allegedly spoke to a third party matters around the fight against corruption in the country.

Chizuma’s arrest comes as the ACB has been arresting several senior government officials including recently the Vice President Saulos Chilima over corrupt charges.
