A political expert in Malawi has urged political parties to learn from South African ruling political party African National Congress (ANC) on dealing with corrupt leaders.
Political expert George Phiri explained that political parties in Malawi must learn from ANC which has asked South African president Jacob Zuma to step down over corruption.
Phiri explained further that political parties through members can help in solving social challenges affecting Malawi by taking action against leaders that are involved in malpractices.
Zuma is facing corruption charges after a turbulent nine years in power.
An anti-corruption body found he had spent $23m (£15m) on his rural home in Nkandla in the KwaZulu-Natal province, adding a swimming pool and an amphitheatre.
He later paid back the money after the Supreme Court in South Africa ordered him to give back taxpayers’ money.
He is also accused of giving power to a family of Indian origin to make decisions such as firing and hiring ministers.
The development angered ANC members who called for action against Zuma.
