“We all have to be active in reporting corrupt people. Time for celebrating corrupt people and initiatives is over. We, as a ministry, think that the signing of the MoU will energise Malawians,” Mtambo said.


According to some of the terms of the MoU, ACB and the ministry would join hands in raising awareness about dangers of engaging in corruption.

They will also collaborate in undertaking capacity-building initiatives targeting the ministry’s structures, National Initiative for Civic Education Public Trust and the public in the prevention and detection of corruption.
