Anti- Corruption Bureau launches graft awareness month


The Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) is holding the first ever anti-corruption awareness month from today to December 9.

ACB Director General Reyneck Matemba said a number of activities had been lined up to take everyone aboard in the fight against corruption.

“For instance, we will be erecting road blocks with the Police and conducting awareness campaigns. Through the road blocks, we will also be appreciating how law enforcers discharge their duties,” he said.


Matemba said they had printed the anti-corruption national strategy in local languages.

In the past, the ACB used to have Anti- Corruption Week, which would culminate in commemorations marking international Anti-Corruption Day.

This is, therefore, the first time for the graft-busting body to embark on a month-long awareness drive.


“We have learnt from our friends in Ghana about the awareness month and we will be doing this in Malawi every year. This year, the month will end with activities marking international Anti-Corruption Day, where the main event will be held in Blantyre,” Matemba said.

In another development, Matemba has said plans to have the Whistleblower Protection Act were at an advanced stage.

“We are on the right track. We raised that issue when we approached the Minister of Justice, such that there is an amendment to the Act. We are hopeful that the Act will be in place soon because we feel the government is also willing to have that in place. We are also pushing for the Witness Protection Act as is the case in other countries,” he said.
