Donors still disappointed -EIU report


The Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) based in Britain has disclosed that Malawi’s development partners still dont have confidence in Malawi’s fiscal descipline.

The report from the intelligence unit has disclosed that Malawi is still not doing well in curbing corruption.

“Corruption levels are still on a high in Malawi as those in government are still abusing government resources.

“Since the onset of cashgate the country has failed to register strides in endng corruption,” reads the report in part, adding:

“As the Malawian government continues to harbour  corruption,development partners are afraid of releasing funds to the most corrupt African nation.”

The report further reveals that Malawi will  continue to pass through economical hardships as aid will not be forthcoming as it used to.

Malawi is also performing poorly in security as just recently, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Malawi expressed dismay over the way some cases concerning attacks and murders of people living with albnism are being handled by the Malawi police.

Leading the CSOs, Gift Trapence said that the police are a dissapointment.

“As a country we were expecting that Buleya would lead us to where albino body parts are being sold,” he suggested.

He further called for an independent committee to investigate police officers who were on duty the day  Buleya died.

“Something suspicious happened because the first postmoterm disclosed that he was electrocuted.

“We want the cops who were on duty that night arrested not what is happenng. The officers have something to say on this matter,” he said.
