She is the first woman to serve as ACB Director.

“Thank you for the prayers, support, the criticism ( yes we needed it and welcomed it) and encouragement. I shall forever remain grateful for this” she added.

Malawi has great expectations from you Madam Martha Chizuma for the ACB Czar position. This rotten system of corruption which has tarnished by evil people needs to be sanitized by your handwork. You have the support for every Malawian who wants to see changes just like me. Let every penny which thieves in government be followed and refunded back into Government Account number one and be used for it’s intended purpose.

Honeymoon is over to all thieves and corrupt Asians. Go Martha Go and stripped every stolen penny from their pockets
