Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) should, transform into a commission to be independent from political and government interference, the quasi-religious group Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has proposed.
The proposal was made when PAC official met ACB management in Lilongwe .
PAC chairperson the Reverend Felix Chingota told reporters that by making the bureau a commission will allow independent undertaking of business.
“We , as PAC, would like to advance a reform on transforming the bureau into a commission, with its commissioners serving as a board which will cushion the director from interfacing too much with authorities.
“This will be in addition to reforming the ACB in terms of removal of the ACB director. This is our proposal,” said Chingota.
ACB director Reyneck Matemba said changing into commission is a welcome idea as long as it addresses the issue of “operation independence.”
He said: “Let us not lose focus on the ultimate objective of the independence.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
