Jessie Kabwira, PP doubt APM’s competence to deal with corruption

0

Opposition parties in the country have expressed doubt if at all President Mutharika is willing to deal with corruption in the country, siting his reluctance to deal with corrupt ministers and public officials as a challenge to root out corruption.

Expressing her dismay, Jessie Kabwira said that Mutharika has clearly shown Malawians that he cannot deal with corruption.

“He has told us that he cannot suspend or fire the officials involved in the Zambia maize scum because he does not work on assumptions but the thing is he is just protecting the agriculture minister and the Admarc CEO for reasons best known to himself.

“When something like this happens, those responsible for the mess pave way for investigation by either resigning or stepping aside,” she said.

She added that Malawians are suffering and hungry because of corruption.

“Government was supposed to buy maize which hungry Malawians could afford not what they did in Zambia. This shows that the Mutharika leadership is not taking Malawians problems seriously.

“He chose wrong people to lead Admarc and the ministry of agriculture and instead of correcting his mistake he is busy shielding the corrupt officials,” she added.

On the same, Peoples Party spokesperson, said that the commission of enquiry on the maize scum is just a waste of time.

“They are two people in the commission who are civil servants so the question is how can civil servants probe a minister, is the President serious at all?” he asked.

Recently, Mutharika said that he will only make a decision on the maize scum after the commission of inquiry finishes investigations.
