PETRA Affirms Confidence in ACB Leadership
One of the Tonse Alliance Partners, Peoples Transformation Party (PETRA) has affirmed its confidence in the current leadership of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General Martha Chizuma to root out corruption in Malawi.
In an interview, Petra Acting Communications Director, George Mvula, said the majority of Malawians have high expectations that the process which ACB has started will lead to securing appropriate court convictions and sentences.
“It is pathetic that corruption has robbed Malawians of the much-needed infrastructural development and social services. We are now pleased that the anti-corruption Bureau (ACB) has remained firm in fighting corruption in Malawi,” said Mvula.
Mvula believes the process which the ACB has started will lead to securing court convictions and sentences.
University of Malawi based political analyst Mustafa Hussein says political support is necessary for the ACB to discharge its duties in the best interest of Malawians.
“This signifies that some in Tonse alliance are tired of Corruption and they want the ACB to act and fairly those involved to book,” explained Hussein.
The sentiments come when some people are planning to hold anti-corruption protests in Lilongwe on Wednesday against some individuals deemed to be interfering with the work of the ACB Director General, Martha Chizuma.
