NGO wants ACB director to resign

One of the country’s non-governmental organisations, Forum for National Development (FND), has called on the director of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Lucas Kondowe to step down saying he has failed to help Malawians.

Lucas kondowe has come under fire.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lilongwe on Wednesday, FND executive director Fryson Chodzi said  Kondowe has failed to make sure that individuals and companies named in a K236 billion cashgate audit report are prosecuted.

Chodzi has since given Kondowe 21 days to act on the audit report or step down.

“We have given the ACB director 21 days to review all the names of people involved in the plundering of the public funds and the 13 companies which are involved in the corruption case failing which we will conduct demonstrations to show that we and all Malawians we are contrary to this malpractice,” said Chodzi.

He further requested government to call for an emergency parliament meeting to table a bill on the change of how ACB should be working.

“Enough is enough, the red line has been crossed, government and ACB have taken Malawians for granted we want ACB to be independent not pleasing those political leaders who appointed them to be in such positions.”

“Government should not intervene in the ACB duties therefore we want government to call for a Parliament, they should table the bill involving ACB to be working independently failing which we will take another step by demonstrating that we are tired of corruption,” he said.

  • That NGO is fundend by Joice Banda & anthu onse ali mu NGO imeyi ndi a People’s Party.

  • It is very unfortunate that CSOs, PAC, opposition parties and the entire citizenry are just so silent while Kondowe is busy leading in increasing corruption, contravening his mandate. This Kondowe will mess up Malawi beyond repair if we let him be on that position for sometime, he is a pure corrupter himself and how do u expect him to arrest this evil? Malawians love ur country and hate evil practically!

  • now u are talking.

  • I 100 percent agree
