Chakwera on Mutharika’s neck: accuses Malawi leader of being corrupt

79

Amid reports of corruption cases in Malawi, leader of opposition in the country Lazarus Chakwera has cast doubts on whether the country is to be free from the chains of corruption.

The sentiments come at a time when the country has many corruption cases which remain unresolved due to political interference.

Speaking on a local radio station on Thursday afternoon, Chakwera said the current status of corruption in the country will be normal if authorities remain quiet.

He added that President Peter Mutharika has failed to provide good leadership that can deal with corruption arguing that his government is shielding the perpetrators of corruption because they are part of the blue team.

“He claims that he will only take action when there is clear evidence against them yet he himself refuses to support legislation that will give Anti-Corruption Bureau full independence from his office so that such evidence can be gathered, do we even have hope that the K236 billion cash gate will be investigated?” queried Chakwera.

He further described Mutharika as a “failure” on corruption arguing that officials at ACB live in fear to investigate cases of corruption as the death of Issa Njaunju remains unexplained.

The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader also took his time to express his position on the current social economic challenges that have marred the country arguing that they are signs of “failure of leadership”.

A few months ago Mutharika was embroiled in a verbal war with Rumphi East legislator Kamlepo Kalua who disclosed that the president had names of people involved in plunder of government funds who happen to be members in his cabinet.

The Malawi leader claimed that he could not act unless evidence is brought in his office and that he had no names of people involved in looting of taxpayers money.

  2. Chakwera was just stresing on practical problems on the ground..to deal with corruption in malawi we need top down approach which cant happen with current government, l mean how do we expect any change while those same people who mess up 577 billion kwacha are incharge of government money coffers…

  5. Even the colonial goverment failed to develop this country and described it as the ‘cindelera of the protectorates’,so this gives us avery good picture that developing this nation requires extra efforts.so the guy ,known as chakwera,is just doing campaign and this is too early that some of us will be annoyed of him.

  12. Believe, me all the politicians are the same, and are crooks, thiefs, corrupters, liers all are aiming at stealing our hard earning tax money indee! If Chakwera win today we will c the same followers of Mtharika following Chakwera.

  13. Read, like, share and support the campaign, follow the link below @HELP_A_BROTHER_OUT_CAMPAIGN The Power Of Making The Right Decision What would you do when someone called you to come and get $20,000 for free and the person is in a Helicopter that is just taking off and you can only have that money when you take it directly from his or her hands, and at that very moment this other side you see two big buses coming at high speed and you are the only person that can notify the bus drivers that the bridge is broken ahead. What decision would you take to go for the money or save the people? It’s ovous that what ever the decision you will take it will require a lot of sacrifice, and what matters most here is just not mealy taking any decision but taking one which will clear your concious, help you spiritually and above all one which will add more lacks or blessing your way in future more than what you are expecting now in your human nature or calculations. So it is with HELP-A-BROTHER-OUT-CAMPAIGN, supporting one another or rather a brother or sister you don’t know, it involves a lot of sacrifice, hey if JESUS sacrificed and died for our sins on the cross then who are we not to follow suit. After all we are called Christians meaning Christ like. So make that decision to help a brother or sister you don’t know without asking for anything in return, .NOTE remember it’s only by acting together that we can achieve this goal,( in the next 10 years this will be leading helping hand in Zambia as well as Africa to the unfortunate brothers and sisters out there. @ Together_we_can_achieve_this_and_make_a_better_world_tomorrow. https://mobile.facebook.com/Help.a.Brother.Out.Campaign/?ref_component=mbasic_bookmark&ref_page=XMenuController
