Malawi will continue finding it difficult to fight corruption if the battle is left to the graft-busting body alone, the Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General Lucas Kondowe has told lawmaker.
Kondowe who led his ACB team which appeared before the cluster of Public Appointments, Legal Affairs and Statutory Authorities committees of parliament, said graft-busting in Malawi is “a terrible fight.”
He said:“ It is a difficult fight that does not need spectators. Unfortunately, the feeling out there is that fighting corruption is something that has to be done by the Anti-Corruption Bureau alone.”
Kondowe said the National Anti- Corruption Strategy identifies eight key stakeholders who are part of the process of fighting corruption such as the Executive, the Judiciary, the Legislature, faith-based organisations, the media and the private sector.
Malawi’s graft busting body is facing a number of challenges, including transport and resources.
Kondowe also encouraged whistle blowers to come forward to the bureau with information and if necessary objective material evidence.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
