Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP) coordinator Martin Chiphwanya said the government is just transfers those who are involved in theft of public funds, saying the trend encourages the abuse of public money.

“This is why theft of public money and corruption have reached unproportional levels,” said Chiphwanya.

National Initiative for Civic Education (Nice) executive director Ollen Mwalubunju said the government needs to be serious in protecting the tax payers money.

He said the rampant theft of public money and corruption is what is making the government fail to provide services to people.

The two major newspapers have been awash with theft and corruption stories the whole last week and looks like the public officers are engaged in the vice with impunity.

Big fishes in Government know that Malawians are barking dogs and harmless…………..!!

Imagine while many complained to Government, nothing is happening to stop the vice!! Instead what we hear is that one of them went ahead processing some dubious maize contracts and cancelled it at 11th hour just because Development Partners commented on it…….!!

They are “untouchables”!! Corruption in Malawi has anchored stronger roots and is there to stay…………………!! Mind my words!!
