Parliamentary Legal Affairs Committee Chairperson Peter Dimba Resigns
Chairperson for the Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament Peter Dimba has resigned from his position with immediate effect.
In a letter to the speaker of the National Assembly, which we have seen, of which Dimba has confirmed, the Malawi Congress Party Lilongwe South Parliamentarian says his resignation follows a decision by the Office of the President and Cabinet to interdict the Anti-Corruption Bureau Director General Martha Chizuma over a criminal matter.
Dimba cites that despite the gains the committee has registered in the time of his chairmanship, their efforts to provide checks and balances to the excesses of the executive, particularly in the fight against corruption has proved to be futile.
The Secretary to the President and Cabinet Colleen Zamba is using a matter in court before a magistrate as justification for the interdiction of the ACB Boss.
