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.”
