Auditors challenged on integrity, quality control


Internal auditors have been urged to value integrity and adhere to quality control measures if they are to be effective and efficient in service delivery.

Malawi Electoral Commission Chairperson Judge Chifundo Kachale made the call at the weekend when he graced the opening of this year’s Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Malawi annual lakeshore conference in Mangochi.

He said internal auditors are among key professionals expected to expose corruption in both public and private institutions, hence the need for them to value integrity.


“As professionals, they need to recognise the vision of the country. Internal auditors, both in private and public sectors, need to understand issues that the country is facing.

“They are critical in ensuring that companies, government departments and ministries are accountable. They are the first people who could detect corruption,” he said.

IIAM President Ackson Banda said that auditors will continue executing their duties with prudence and integrity.


“Integrity is core in the work of internal auditors. It is one of the ethical values that auditors need to practice.

“We have yet again been motivated to abide by the ethics that we are supposed to value,” he said.

The conference attracted internal auditors and members of other professionals from the public and private sectors of the economy.

It was held under the theme ‘Resilience in Turbulent Times’. It created a platform for players in the industry to confront pangs of the Covid pandemic—which has affected most sectors of the economy— and to find remedies for business survival.
