Malawi graft agency arrest former MACRA boss Godfrey Itaye for office abuse

MZUZU-(MaraviPost)-The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has arrested the former Director General of the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA), Godfrey Itaye, for allegedly abusing his office as a public officer during the time he was at the helm of the institution.

According to a warrant of arrest the Bureau obtained through the Blantyre Chief Resident Magistrate, Itaye abused his office on January 29, 2018 when he employed Daniel Datchi as a Revenue Assurance Manager at MACRA, when the latter had no necessary qualifications for the job at that time.

This is not the first time Itaye is arrested on accounts of abuse of office as he was also arrested in September 2020 for allegedly buying party materials for the former ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) using public money.

He was later charged along his accomplices, Macra Director of Finance, Ben Chitsonga and procurement specialist at Macra, Joseph Ngalawa, of authorizing MK8.5 million of public money to Mapeto David Whitehead and Son Limited for the purchase of DPP’s memorabilia.
