Graft busting body, the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) has said the staff resignation enmasse at the graft-busting body is as a result of poor working conditions.

ACB spokesperson Egritta Ndala told Zodiak on Friday that most members of staff are resigning because the organisation was not meeting their expectations.

She said just last year alone, 13 members of staff from investigations, civic education and human resource departments have resigned negatively affecting the operations of the organisation.

Ndala, however, said the prosecution of cases has not largely been affected as those who resigned are not from the prosecution department.

Diplomats, including the European Ambassador to Malawi have expressed concern over the resignations.

“This means the battle against corruption will not be one,” said the EU ambassador in an interview with Zodiak TV.

He said the government needs to move in quickly to correct the situation saying high levels of corruption would derail developments efforts the government has embarked on.

The resignations are perpetrated by this dpp govts which wants to frustrate investigations and continue with its corruption. And this woman is not telling us the full truth. Investigators can’t work without administrators. You overload the investigators if you remove the administrators. The chaos we see in Acb cases vindicates me.

This is the most stupid reason. Now if you pay ACB staff handsomely wont lawyers in justice cry foul. No one organ of govt can single handedly toot out corruption. No money can be enough. How do you treat the Fiscal police. Actually the Fiscal police is more effective than the ACB. The ACB lacks effective leadership as a result the staff are demotivated. What impact has the ACB had on corruption? Nothing.
