Capital Oil Refinery Industry (Cori), producers of Kukoma oil, have donated K2 million towards t h e Commonwealth.
Heads of Anti-Corruption Agencies’ conference which starts in Mangochi Monday.
The conference, which will be held under the theme ‘Coordinating National Anti-corruption Action in Commonwealth Africa’, is being hosted in the country for the first time.
Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Deputy Director General, Reyneck Matemba, said the conference would look at success stories and how best they can benefit Malawi in addressing corruption.
Matemba said the agency approached the private sector to assist in hosting the conference because government could not fund the conference alone.
“We approached various companies to assist us during the conference and Cori is one of them. As ACB, we are thankful for the support from Cori, which will enable us to meet the transport cost of our [ferrying] delegates from Lilongwe to Mangochi and back ,” he said.
He further said ACB has not received cash donations, but rather companies are paying directly for various services.
Cori Head of Human Resources and Administration, Alex Chisiano, said ACB is doing a good job of fighting corruption; hence their support.
He said a win in the fight against corruption would see companies performing better as corruption has largely affected the private sector.
“We believe that, through this fight, businesses will be able to operate freely and contribute positively to the growth of the economy,” Chisiano said.
