ACB nabs  DPP’s Vuwa Kaunda, obtains arrest warrant for judge Muhara

Graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has this morning arrested former Lands minister Symon Vuwa Kaunda over alleged shoddy public land deals connected to his former cabinet colleague, Charles Mchacha.

 Vuwa Kaunda: Arrested

ACB director gẻneral Reyneck Matemba has confirmed of the arrest and sàid the bureau has already obtained a court warrant of arrest for High Court Judge Lloyd Muhara.

The ACB is accusing Mchacha of using his political muscle to obtain public land in Blantyre with the help of Kaunda, when he was minister of Lands and Muhara when he was chief secretary to the government.

“We could not arrest Honourable Kaunda last week because he was attending parliamentary business but Honourable Mchacha was not, that is why we arrested him,” he said.

He said Muhara is in the US.

“We will get in touch with him and formerly inform him of the warrant of arrest. Hopefully he will cooperate and come back home,” said Matemba.

High Court officials say Muhara never reported for duties after his secondment to the OPC ended following the dramatic loss of former president Peter Mutharika in the court sanctioned June 23 presidential election which swept out the Democratic Progressive Party out of power.

This is dealing with corruption decisively, but there is point arresting people and not having winnable cases and sending people to jail. Graft busting body should look for topclass investigative officers who have enough evidence when they go to court. It must never look like witch hunt. I for one am happy Malawi is moving into a direction of dealing with thieves. Corruption has robbed our nation development. It is a disease that was so entreanched and needs a tiger with teeth to undo it

Tjis ACB guy called matemba is incompetent and a useless fool. He must be ashamed of himself being used to persecute political opponents. Total rubbish. ACB has refuted that there is any warrant of arrest for Muhara.
Stop political arrests

I didnt know that Matemba is such a fool to be used by mcp. Where is the independence of ACB? Can we say that the so called tonse thieves are angels? Why making arrests only from DPP yet he is paying a blind eye to tonse thieves,? Matemba is a fool!

Bring the evidence Dingase then he will act, he can not act on social media posts. ACB is now independent. DPP killed Njaunju to cause fear among ACB staff but Tonse government is really willing to end the vice.
