Former president Peter Mutharika has taken the graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to court for refusing to unfreeze his bank accounts.
ACB director general Reyneck Matenba has confirmed at a news conference in Lilongwe that Mutharika has sued the graft busting body.
The ACB froze personal bank accounts of Mutharika, his wife Gertrude, step son Tadikira and former aide Norman Chisale as the graft busting body investigates the four over various corruption cases.
Matemba said the law was followed to the latter when closing the bank accounts.
ACB has been investigating Chisale, the former Chief of State Residence, Peter Mukhitho, and a Malawian businessman of Asian origin, Ahamad Chunara, in connection with the importation of cement from Zambia and Zimbabwe worth over K5 billion in the name of the former president.
