Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) chief corruption prevention officer Susan Phiri has encouraged people from Traditional Authority Chiwere in Dowa District to report corruption to relevant authorities.
She said this at the end of a one-week mobile clinic ACB organised to engage people on the evils of corruption.
Phiri said the clinic was successful as community members were able to launch complaints on wider-ranging issues
including alleged fraud during distribution of farm inputs under the Affordable Inputs Programme.
“People now know about corruption and how to report it. We asked community members to join the fight against corruption,” she said.
Elube Thom, a community member, thanked ACB for conducting the awareness campaign.
“Corruption is evil because it affects development. We will monitor public projects and ensure that duty-bearers transact their duties in a transparent manner,” she said.
Dowa East legislator Richard Chimwendo Banda (Malawi Congress Party) also commended ACB for the exercise.
He said the awareness campaign will empower people to report corruption.
Chimwendo Banda, who is also Minister of Local Government, Unity and Culture, asked people to desist from corruption.
The K250 000 tournament saw the winning team cart home K150 000 and the runner-up receive K100 000.
However, Chimwendo Banda also gave out K100 000 to netball teams to share
