Tumbuka chief Chikulamayembe calls for stiffer penalties for corruption

Tumbuka Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe has called for stiffer penalties for persons convicted of corruption in Malawi.

Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe of Rumphi: Stiffer penalties for corrupt people

Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe says one of the main factors fueling corruption in the civil service is that convicts are getting too lenient sentences for stealing public money.

Corruption yakwera chomene… anthu akutola ndalama zaboma… chalo chanangika. (Corruption has risen tremendously and people are stealing government’s money. The country is rotten),” said Paramount Chikulamayembe demanding prompt action.

Chikulamayembe was speaking when he welcomed President Peter Mutharika at Bolero in Rumphi on Thursday.

Commenting on President Mutharika’s performance, Chikulamayembe, who is famed for frank talk told the gathering that he was impressed

The chief said he was convinced that Malawians shall give Mutharika another seal of approval for a second term come 2019.

Chikulamayembe then expressed concern over Malawi’s porous borders which have created room for more illegal foreign settlers in the northern region.

President Mutharika is in Rumphi to launch the Rumphi—Nyika —Chiweta road.

Agogo Chikulamayembe, Thanks a lot for condemning corruption your words are powerful. I would wish if you could go further to condemn Catholic Priests also since one of them took part in the killing of the albino by the name of Masambuka
