The State House Chief of Staff, Prince Kapondamgaga, who has been on suspension can now afford to take a sigh of relief after the the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has communicated to the Malawi nation that they have closed investigations involving him.
In a statement released by the ACB Principal Public Relations Officer Egrita Ndala, the bureau has not found any evidence sustaining any form criminal charges known to its book.
The bureau’s statement recounts events that brought about the allegations against the Chief of Staff stating that “investigations had established that Mr. Kapondamgaga, was one of the public officers who had received a Mercedes Benz S class 350d and other gifts from Mr. Zunneth Sattar”.
In view of this development, the ACB said “a prosecutorial discretion has been exercised not to lay criminal charges against him. Accordingly, the Bureau has completed and closed the investigations against him.”
Following this development, it means that the State House Chief of Staff can now resume his duties as he is now a free person with no criminal charges against his name.
President Chakwera suspended the Chief of Staff to pave way for the ACB to conclude its investigations on him which the bureau had announced was undertaking.
