By Dorica Mtenje

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The embattled Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has accused President Lazarus Chakwera for shielding corrupt Secretary to the President and Cabinet (SPC) Collen Zamba on office abuse and corruption attempts.

HRDC rebuke comes barely two weeks after former Acting National Oil Company of Malawi (NOCMA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Hellen Buluma exposed Zamba of office abuse and coruption.

of NOCMA allegations on Secretary to the President (SPC) influence on fuel procurement, Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) condemned Chakwera for not firing Collen Zamba to allow the smooth investigations on the matter.

HRDC, interim Vice Chairperson, Micheal Kaiyatsa told news conference on Saturday, December 3, 2022 that Chakwera silence on Zamba is worrying.

Kaiyatsa said Buluma allegations on Zamba are serious that there is need for SPC’ suspension to pave way for smooth investigation.

He said the President cannot ignore the matter as it is inline with previous suspension of officers and aides close to him on suspicion of corruption and abuse of power.

“Fact that the President has not taken any action against allegations made against the SPC or commented on the issue is highly suspicious and gives the impression
that Chakwera is shielding her,” said Kaiyatsa.

He therefore dared Zamba to respond to the allegations levelled against her or step aside to allow the law to take its course.

Recently HRDC gave 21 days Ultimum to government to address issues to do with fuel crisis which has now stabilize, commencement of AIP which is now in progress and firing of NOCMA CEO and the coalition feel impressed with the steps that the government made.

Meanwhile HRDC has given government another 21 days ultimatum to address issues including Cabinet reshuffle, firing of Zamba and restrictions of foreign trips for the government offices inline with the austerity measures.
