Chakwera vows to free graft agency’s operations

By Dorica Mtenje

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-President Lazarus Chakwera has vowed to stop interfering with Anti-corruption Bureau (ACB)’s independence.

Chakwera disclosed this on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 in the August house while responding to the question posed by Nkhatabay south west Member of Parliament (MP), Noah Chipeni.

Chipeni asked the president to consider the fight against corruption in the country by providing enough resources considering the setup of special courts to speed up high profile cases when the head of state appeared before Parliament to answer questions from members.

In his response, Chakwera said government will provide enough resources for the Bureau to operate its investigations without any interference.

Concurring with Chipeni, Karonga South lawmaker ,Uchizi Mkandawire said government should make an effort to ensure that the ACB is free from interfere by not persuading the ACB Director to be reporting to the president.

This is the third time President Chakwera has appeared before Parliament to answer questions of national interest.

Recently Chakwera asked ACB Director General Martha Chizuma directly report to him following recent audio leakage that contravened office secrecy oath.
