Ndala: Malawi will benefit

ACB’s Public Relations Officer Egrita Ndala said Malawi is to benefit a lot from the conference that is to be held next week.

“As you are aware, corruption is fast becoming a cross border crime, it is therefore important that the agencies cooperate and ensure that criminals do not find a safe haven in any of the Commonwealth Africa Region countries,” said Ndala in an interview with Malawi24 on Friday.

Ndala added that the anti-corruption agencies are to strive in sharing experience during the meeting as one way of helping each other in the fight against corruption.
