ACB to make sure all cashgate thieves are prosecuted


The Anti-Corruption Bureau has said it will make all cashgaters are prosecuted regardless of the pace at which the fraud cases are going in courts.

Speaking in an interview the graft busting body deputy director Reyneck Matemba said that ACB will not leave any stone unturned.

“Malawians should know that all who stole the money will face the law. We know that the cases are going at a snail’s pace but i must tell u that justice will be served,” he promised.

Lately, following the pace at which cashgate thieves are being prosecuted human rights advocates urged government to hire private investigators to protect local investigators as well as speeding up the fraud cases.

Speaking in an interview the chairperson of the human rights conservative committee, Robert Mkwezalamba said that cashgaters might plan clandestine attacks on local investigators.

“Government should speed up the cases to protect local investigators because we might end up losing a lot of people like how we lost Njaunju.

“International private investigators will not be easily traced like how the mafias are tracing those investigating the fraud,” he said.

Malawi Police linked the death of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) director of corporate services Issa Njauju to the on-going investigations on massive looting at capital hill.

Police further said investigations show K577 Billion DPP and PP cashgate (Unaccounted for funds) could be the reason to Njaunju’s brutal murder.

The development follows after Public Affairs Committee (PAC) argued government to prove security to ACB Officials.

PAC earlier on suggested the murder of Njaunju been connected to investigations of looting of tax payer money that has implicated People’s Party (PP) and ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Speaking during a press briefing in Lilongwe on Wednesday Police said cashgate investigations might be a major reason of Njaunju’s death.

The ACB official was brutally murdered and hisbody thrown aside presidential villas along presidential drive in Lilongwe Area 44,on July 2, 2015.

According to an autopsy report his body was found with two gun-shoot wounds and his official car a Toyota Hilux D4D double cabin was burnt down to ashes at Mtsiriza near Area 49 in the capital city.
