Lately, Malawi has seen an increase in cases of contentious and procedural hiring that some ended on the table of the office of the Ombudzman.

For years, Malawians have decried the loss of tax-payer’s money to mismanagement or absolute corruption by public officials.

From village level to councils to the central government, funds grow wings and just disappear in thin air, which all boils down to one thing, corruption.

The problem at times is where the citizens say they do not know what amounts to corruption, which some feel that relevant authorities should have made a deliberate effort to sensitize them on what defines corruption.

Corruption has been a parasite that has been eating too much into the country’s governance system for years in Malawi, a concern that seems to be a tall order to address.

It has found its way into both the public and private sector and among all ages in the society, that is including the youthful population in the country.

The Minister of Homeland Security has said that the government will commit to eliminate human trafficking, as police busted two Ethiopians, man and wife, for running a trafficking ring that had a holding cell at Dzaleka Refugee Camp.

The Law and Corruption

On 9th December 2019, the Malawi Government launched the National Anti-Corruption Strategy-NACS II which has the most concrete and complementary goals that Malawians across the board care about.

In 1998, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) opened its doors in Malawi to fight corruption which affects development in many spheres. The first case was registered on 12th May in the same year, and it involved abuse of office at the country’s public broadcaster, the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC). 

Pope Francis’s new envoy to Malawi and Zambia, Archbishop Gian Luca Perici, has delivered his letters of credence to President Lazarus Chakwera in Lilongwe.

Zodiak Broadcasting Station female workers have ventured into a fundraising drive that will raise funds for a charitable cause to take place on Mothers’ Day this year.

Minister of Health Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda has warned that if not checked, climate change may undermine all progress that has been made in global health.

Nation Publications Limited (NPL) says it looks forward to 30 more years of learning, teaching and delivery in service of the country as it celebrates 30 years in the news industry.
