The Economics Association of Malawi (ECAMA) Boss Henry Kachaje has asked President Professor Peter Mutharika to close
the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) for failing to curb corruption in the country, Nyika Daily News has learnt.

Economist Kachaje made the remarks few days after President Mutharika confessed that corruption and fraud continue to hinder country’s development.

He said that ACB is just wasting tax money.

“I might be wrong, but my view is that maintaining the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) in its current state of non performance
is simply a waste of our limited resources.

“It might be prudent to simply close it down and re-allocate the resources to other uses, even if it was simply to build a state banquet at Kamuzu Palace,’’ Said Henry Kachaje.

It is estimated that about 35 percent of government funds have been stolen over the past decades through fraud and corruption.

One thought on ““Shut Down Anti-Corruption Bureau”- Economist

  1. Questioning ACB performance is intelligent thing to do but closing it and reallocating resources to irrelevant solution to corruption is foolish and irresponsible thing to do . Especially when every Malawian acknowledges that corruption is pandemic in the country. The sensible thing is to review and reform the ACB so that it should work effectively
