ACB Marks 25 Years: How Do You Rate the Bureau?

Martha Chizuma

The country’s graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), is celebrating silver jubilee with a message assuring Malawians that it has put in place strategies that will guide its anti-corruption efforts over the next 25 years. ACB Director General, Martha Chizuma, however, pointed out various challenges that require attention and resolution for Malawi to effectively combat corruption.

Chizuma emphasized the need for a more personalized approach to the fight against corruption. She stressed the importance of raising awareness about the impacts of corruption and encouraging individuals to take ownership of the fight.

“We need to start personalising corruption fight. We need to let people know the impacts of corruption and take ownership in the fight,” said Chizuma.

Chizuma also highlighted cases involving Zuneth Sattar and Dr. Saulos Chilima as among the most complex ever handled by the ACB. These cases require extensive research, additional disclosures, and collaboration with British legal and security agencies.

As a citizen, how would you evaluate the performance of the Bureau for the past 25 years? Has it met your expectations or not?
