The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) entire machinery has been there and about rendering its full weight of support to the beleaguered Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director’s antics in fighting corruption. Some were saying the support was because Chizuma and the ACB were seen fighting corruption currently underway in the Chakwera led-administration.
Now that the ACB has announced that it is zeroing in on former President Peter Mutharika on how his Tax-Payer Identification number (T-PIN) was abused, Malawians are yet to see how the DPP machinery will react. Will it recoil? Will it still support the ACB in its endeavor to probe and or investigate Peter Mutharika, investigations which may possibly lead to the arrest of the former President?
According to a statement released by ACB’s Public Relations Officer, Egrita Ndala, the interview will be conducted tomorrow 10th February 2023.
“The Bureau would like to let Malawians know that this is a normal and legal process that started in 2020. The ACB hopes that this will put the record straight on the various stories circulating on the social media surrounding the matter,” reads the letter in part.
The fight against corruption has now stalled with the ACB Director herself Martha Chizuma now fighting for her own survival as the Director owing to the government’s move to interdict her recently and an injunction the Malawi Law Society obtained stopping the interdiction effectively giving Chizuma a new lease of life to fight corruption courtesy of the court.
