Former Malawi Minister of Agriculture, George Chaponda, has been arrested by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) this morning over maizegate.

ACB legal and prosecution director Chrispin Khunga told the press that Chaponda was arrested this morning when he went to ACB offices in Blantyre for questioning.

He was in the company of his lawyer, Jai Banda.

According to Khunga, Chaponda will appear in court today.

ACB was granted Chaponda’s warrant of arrest last week.

  6. Penapake amalawi tizidziwa chomwe tikufuna. What else could tha gvt do with chaponda’s case? Its goog here if only we can appriciate gvt action. Mmafuna boma litan? Zilizonse kutsutsu basi…

  7. I receive the news cautiously.
    1. Will anyone else who commits similar crimes get the same red carpet treatment in future?
    2. Do people really trust the ACB chief anymore? Suppose this is all but a rehearsed programme of activities whose verdict is premeditated. Who will care to closely follow up the case to ensure that the prosecuting entity doesn’t​ deliberately put up a weak case?
    3. At some point earlier, the suspect wondered why he was the only one being targeted and indeed why the finance Minister was being spared. This statement tells a story

    So let’s wait and see and I hope am not profesying. I will be surprised that ultimately, am not vindicated
