Matemba was the most hopeless ACB director serving the interests of Nonse Alliance only. Very useless just like Kachale of MEC and the corrupt 5 appeasement judges who found no evidence of rigging but still nullified the 2019 elections. It’s our prayer that Matemba shall not take his pathetic biasness into Ministry of Justice as a solister general.

Chakwera should not take advantage of the situation in rushing to appoint Matemba’s replacement but must do what he promised us. Let him ask the Speaker to convene an emergency meeting for Parliamen to amend two or three laws quickly to reduce the President’s powers including that of appointing ACB Chief.

Matemba was a full house. Corruption is a difficult cancer to prove. Within his available infrastructure, he tried his best. Let us not concentrate on negatives but consider his positives.

He remains a national asset. I also remember Rex Moyo with whom I interacted when I was at Parliament. He used to be Director of Finance and Administration. He was just like Matembe in terms of behavior and professionalism.

Matemba is too quite for the job at ACB. He needs to be under someone. He is too shy and very slow in decision making . Acb is full of fast thinking guys and he failed to manage them . The cases of corruption are so complex that’s why even Danwood Phiri a professor of Law in South Africa suggested to Chakwera to think of removing the guy if the fight against corruption is to be achieved . Matemba was not for for this job that’s why cases have taken long to complete because he lacked leadership qualities . At… Read more »

Now its good the bastard has left ACB, All along he has been doing his bidding so that he wins favour with the crocodile party. Matemba liked talking and no action. He was probably the most talkative guy as if ACB had no publicity office.

That’s why he refused to renew ACB Director Post….
He knew about solicitor G according to perks,is Solicitor G perks, better than ACB’s ?….I hope so, that’s why he has accepted, refused to renew.
Anyway,Matemba is a good gentleman who talks the walk.We like him.Hope he will assist Chakwera Government purposely.

Congratulations !!!!
