MZUZU-(MaraviPost)-Youth and Society (YAS) on Monday, July 3, 2023, accused President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance government of shielding “former statehouse chief” of staff Prince Kapondamgaga and former cabinet minister Eisenhower Mkaka from being investigated on corruption allegations.
YAS claims that there is heavy political interference in law enforcement agencies fighting against corruption in the country.
YAS executive director Charles Kajoloweka wonders why there is no action on investigations on Kapondamgaga and Mkaka.
Kajoloweka told the news conference in Mzuzu that he has tangible information on how President Chakwera is allegedly interfering in cases including the MK750 million botched Affordable Inputs Program (AIP), NOCMA oil deals, and among others.
Kajoloweka has therefore demanded independence of law enforcement agencies and has condemned selective justice in Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance government.
Tonse Alliance government spokesperson Moses Kunkuyu is yet to respond to Kajoloweka’s claims.
