We need a corrupt free president to end corruption – Kamlepo

Vice chairperson of the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (Pac), Kamlepo Kalua has claimed that unless a corrupt free president is elected in Malawi, corruption will never end in the country.

Kalua who is also Member of Parliament for Rumphi East constituency was speaking on Tuesday as he was reacting to the progress of corruption cases in the country.


Kalua: Corruption is just too much in Malawi.

The parliamentarian said it would be very difficult to see the vice coming to an end in Malawi because even the leaders who are expected to handle such issues are also involved in corruption.

“There is more corruption happening out there and I could tell you that the Anti-Corruption Bureau is too small to handle such cases. There is need for a new leader who could not be involved in such scenarios of eating people’s money and corruption could end in the country at the end of six months,” suggested Kalua.

He added that unless something tangible happens on the corruption issue in the country, Malawi’s reputation abroad will still remain poor.

Recently, the United Nations (UN) condemned the increase in cases of corruption saying the vice is negatively affecting the country’s development.

  • Leave my Malawi Democratic pioneer alone. He is an icon of democracy to be born in Malawi is because of his voice echoing to Dr.Banda’s MCP regime in 1994.
    Where were stupid born free to fight with Banda’s regime?
    Where was ur fuck voices in 1994?
    There was no body in 1993 to come fight with the mighty MCP, but Kamlepo and co did it,
    Opusa a chewa inu odya ubweya wa mbewa.

  • Corruption is not only now. When democracy came into action it started. And it will never end because its the samecrunies running it. They all started with UDF and they keep on changing parties and still run our offices. You are all the same. Who is better God knows.

  • Iwe ndiwe opanda corruption????????? Prove urself

  • But if we are to vote for him can he be a corupt free kind of President?

  • There’s corruption in at least every country. Even if you are elected as President,you won’t stop the malpractice.

  • Mr Kamlepo, Not Only The President, But Rather Corrupt Free Individuals, Corrupt Free Mps. Unfortunately, We Shall Find None! I’m Very Sure Mr Kalua Knows This!

  • Keep on giving them pressure.

  • All poor countries corrup. will never end. This z wat u must know if u did not know.

  • Malawi, our country, is composed of several tribes which have priorities when it comes to development. The election of president is based on where is he or she coming from (Wakwithu culture is still playing around). This makes also the president to chose who to work with regard to where are they coming from. We need to bury our cultural boundaries and develop our Nation. In Europe there is nothing like tribes and when the president is elected they all support him regardless of where he is coming from. That’s why they are developed nations. All Malawians should know that there is no one who will come from outside and tell us what to do. We need to negotiate in ourselves and devise the plans of running our government otherwise we are still very far.

  • my name is Helen mulikatu and this is a testimony of how i got cure from HIV/AIDS, i have being suffering from hiv/aids for the past three years without the expectation of being cure, i was on ARV, despite the ARV i was not comfortable and there was nothing i could do because i knew and i was told by my Doctor that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, my dream of getting cured came to past, one faithful morning my son came to me and told me about what he saw on net of how someone was cured through the help of Doctor Abumen herbal medicine, i was advice its not real that there is no cure but something keep telling me to contact him, of which i later did and the cure was sent to me with an instruction on how to use it which i did accordingly and went for a test, to my greatest sup rice the result was negative i could not hold back the tears of joy running down my chick my doctor was shocked, i thank God that am finally cured from hiv/aids, Doctor Abumen is an herbal specialist that can cure hiv/aids, you can contact him through his email which is (doctorabumen@gmail) com or whatsapp his mobile number is +2347085071418.

  • Gerald mapanga phiri says:

    We have so many educated ignorant youth. When we see the comments they don’t put national interest first instead demalogue politics. May be because our education is at standard. I see always they advocate for opposite side of life. Most commenting here went to school but mind is not cleaned for nation future

  • Even him will do the same, stop talking sheet,

  • Vuto nonse munayamba ndale ndi cholinga choti mulemere

  • APM holds the Malawians ‘ mandate to lead the Malawi nation up to 2019. The constitution guarantees a second term in office if the President decides to stand again. I guess that should be the best time to fight the President, otherwise give him space to serve the country in the best possible way

  • Burn Guy says:

    We all see what the nation is going through. We can all have our thoughts about what should be done to end the nation’s economic crisis. #Kamlepo_Kalua is also just like all of us, a concerned citizen, who is expressing his views about what can be done to free Malawi from corruption. Yet we are busy insulting him as if he is the one making the country suffer. Now if we do not stand by such people, who have constructive ideas, then how are we going to make Malawi a corruption free nation?

  • Where on earth are you going to get one?Clinton and Trump are already corrupt before they come in.Zuma,Mugabe,Khama,Museveni they are birds of the same feather.Politics is dirty it does not have rules.The best criminal wins the race!

  • Ine mbuzi iyi yotchedwa kamlepo inandikwana

  • Send a thief to catch a thief theory has not only betrayed us big but also proved to be non-functional

  • My best MP the president is 2 corrupt

  • Where will you get that corrupt free president Mr Kamlepo??Unless aMalawi onse otchuka pa ndalenu mutalandila Yesu ndikuzimdikila choonadi chake cha Mulungu zitha kutheka otherwise aaaah mpaka Yesu azabwerenso.

  • Eric Mbewe says:

    Good suggestion, the problem is leaders become corrupted becouse of their party followers and the money which is used by ruling parties in the country is sourced by corruption even so called educated figures in the country are the ones benefiting from this stupid thing , lets hope one day we will have a corrupted free president it a hope for the patriotic citizens of the country big up Kalua only if it comes from deep down your heart

  • a kamlepo ndinu oyipa kwambiri!! pamodzi ndi azakhali anu aja(aja ali ku johns) kuteroko inuyo ndinu abwino? mesa ndinu mwini katangale + azakhali anu aja.ndinu oyenera kukutukwanani komabe mulungu akuoneni ndipo akukhululukireni

  • is he saying we need koffi annan? coz even if we can have him at the topjob i dont think he can be a corrupt free leader. the problem in politics is the person who does more wrongs becomes more popular and can easily win elections . It’s only in Uruguay where a can drive a vehicle and you can stand along the road and stop him for a rift and u will have coz he is not afraid of his people. a corrupt free maybe

  • Can Corrupt People Elect Such A President? Hot Debate- What’s Your Take?

  • sanapezeke sakupezeka sadzapezekanso all malawian leaders are home of corruption

  • Cadets are insulting kamlepo as if, he is the one stealing. Kamlepo is just relaying the msg that corruption is rampant now than ever before. Peter mutharika before he became president, he showed some signs of being corrupt man, when he bought mhc house at a give away price. Him together with his brother had stolen billions of kwachas and dposited them in the foreign banks. Unfortunately his brother, died before he could enjoy the money they had stolen together. Now today, what we hav is not just a corrupt president but a clueless one and worst failure of all presidents we hav had. Nde anzathu a dpp khulupililani kuti president wanu is more corrupt than any other in our history. Komanso enafe akutipanga force kuti akhale mtsogoleri wathu we dont want him.

  • Umbuli pali chomutukwanila munthu apa? Kuzelezeka koya mbila kumakolo

  • Hihi. Nice idea mr man

  • Thats Kamlepo for you. Hate or love him,its your choice. He was during Kamuzu’s, Muluzi’s Bingu’ JB’s and now APM’s.
    The question is, does Malawi not need a corrupt-free president? Are we happy with corruption?

    • He was in government during JB’s time. He never criticised the government then, even at the peak of cashgate. Or did he?

    • You dont criticise what is not there. Cashgate sir, should be taken outside political rhetorics. I always say cashgaters are beyond political propaganda. Time will sort this cashgate issue.

    • He was amongst the cashgaters and now he is deceiving us

    • Mmmmm a Banda zoona

    • himself is corrupt, remember he was him who kept on threatening muluzi kuti ndilowa mtchire, zimatha bwanji zimene zija? ineso ndakhala maboma onse except federal government. mcp was corrupt, udf corrupt, dpp corrupt, pp corrupt and again we are still in corrupt government. enawo ndi church momwe amapanga corruption atavala zoyera, i have to congraturate him for exercising his corrupt acts out of the church. e

  • Chwe mwana Chweeeee!

  • Can we find a corrupt free president in Malawi? Sure?

  • ndiye mumupeza kut? ngat inuyo nditi inuyo mukuliso bava # 1.chosani kaye cimtengo maso mwanu.

  • Che Kaluwa Mungofuna Kutchuka Koma Zikukukanikani, ofcoursf Katangale Alipo Koma Inu Simungathese Mukabadwe Kasanu

  • Very true but should be dreams of 2019 Mr. Kamlepo

  • They com innocently then join the world of evil this

  • Andale nonse mapazi anu zitsilu

  • Panyopako, uyambe waitana mai ako abwere kaye. Ndiye uzizatulutsa maganizo akowo. Zikanakhala, kuti inu munalamula bwino 2yrs ija mwayetsa anthu anakakusiyani mukanawinanso. Koma anthu anangoti, eeh zisiyeni nkhumbazi zithawa zokha ona lero mai wako alikuti?

  • So how do we assess someone and believe he is corruption free before we elect him? Bakili Muluzi was corruption free when we elected him to presidency, Bingu wa Mutharika was corruption free before elected and even JB was a clean person before she took over govt from late Bingu. It’s really difficult to presume someone as a good leader. Even you Mr Kamlepo you won’t be the same once we vote u into power.

    • All the politicians are the son’s of black mamba they’re teeth less but poisonous still one day or another they will bit one day God will deliver us from the wilderness with another Moses or Somson.

  • Ukuyankhula Kut Akumve Ndan?Chabwino,iweyo Unavotera Ndani Amene Ali Corrupt Free?
