Malawi Parliament has sent back an Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) report on two deputy speakers because, according to officials, the report was badly done.
Member of Human Resource Sub Committee Vitus Dzoole Mwale said the committee has since told the ACB officials to rework the report.
The two deputy speakers Esther Mcheka- Chilenje and Clement Chiwaya are accused of abusing money through getting hefty allowances to which they were not entitled.
“We had a meeting on Friday. We saw the report and noted it had a lot of problems. We asked them to include more information,” said Dzoole Mwale.
He said the report is empty and vague.
“We want the ACB to come out clearly,” he said.
Opposition members of parliament; the Malawi Congress Party and Peoples Party want Chilenje and Chiwaya out of their positions.
The two deputy speakers were wrongly claiming rentals for their own houses instead of housing allowance, Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) ordered that they no longer get rentals.
PSC referred the issue to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).
However, the two obtained a court injunction restraining parliament from firing them.
Chilenje is independent MP but sympathises with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) whilst Chiwaya is United Democratic Front .Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
