Malawi President Professor Peter Mutharika has finally swallowed pride and confessed that Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration has successfully failed to combat corruption in the country.
President Mutharika made the remarks on Monday on a whistle stop rally at Ntcheu Boma in his way to the capital city Lilongwe.
He said that despite various government efforts corruption and fraud continue to affect the country’s development efforts.
“Thirty per cent of donor money goes into the drain through corruption and fraud by both government and civil society organizations and we cannot develop with such undesirable practices,” he said.
Mutharika made the remarks barely few days after Rumphi East Member Of Parliament Kamlepo Kalua accused his administration of hiding names of DPP’s Cabinet Ministers implicated in the MK577 billion audit report.
