BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—Patriotic Malawians have been left in the depth despair in as far as fighting corruption is concerned as the country’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) director, who is supposed to lead by example, is currently embroiled in abuse of power.Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) Chief Executive Officer Ralph Kamoto has exposed the ACB boss that he forced the energy regulatory body to award a K6.8 billion contract to build the body’s headquarters in Lilongwe to a company that failed in the bid.

According to The Times Group, Kamoto has since reported Kondowe to the Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale claiming harassment and that what the ACB boss was trying to get from Mera was “corruption of the highest order and abuse of his office”.

Kamoto also told Kaphale that Kondowe threatened to put the project into a “neutral gear” if Mera does not give the contract to Sogecoa Anhui Construction Company although Mera’s Internal Procurement Committee selected Terrastone Limited at its meeting on April 4 2016.

But the ACB boss has dismissed Komoto’s allegations, arguing that the Bureau is aware of its mandate under the law
