Secretary to President and Cabinet Colleen Zamba says her office is moving swiftly to implement President Dr Lazarus Chakwera’s directives issued on Tuesday to stem graft.
Zamba said this on Wednesday in Lilongwe during a media briefing.

During the address to the nation on Tuesday, President Chakwera withheld delegated duties to the Vice President Saulos Chilima because he is suspected to have benefitted from the wrongful contracts.
