Reverend Maulidi Appointed Anti-Corruption Ambassador
The Church of Central Africa Presbytery (CCAP) Blantyre Synod Deputy General Secretary, Reverend Baxton Maulidi has been appointed as the All-African Conference of Churches (AACC) Anti-Corruption Ambassador in Malawi.
Speaking upon arrival on Saturday from the meeting held in Kenya, Reverend Maulidi expressed gratitude for his appointment.
“I will be engaging various stakeholders to fight against deeply rooted corruption, which unfortunately has also not spared the church and ensure accountability of public resources in the country,” said Maulidi.
He says the country has not largely benefitted from both domestic and external debts.
Reverend Maulidi suggests that the citizens should be consulted before the country enters into high interest loans from multilateral lenders such as World Bank, International Monetary Fund IMF as they are ones to repay such loans.
"The masses must be consulted because it is them and their great grandchildren who will be repaying these loans through their taxes," Maulidi said.
The All-African Conference of Churches which was held from the 22nd to the 26th of August 2022 at the headquarters drew participants from about 30 African countries and was held under the theme "Do nothing out of selfish ambition consider others first."
The All African Conference of Churches is an ecumenical fellowship that represents more than 200 million African Christians from about 500 national churches on the continental and its headquarters is in Nairobi Kenya.
