An International Charity Organization, Oxfam Malawi has called for speedy recovery of money that has been lost due to massive Covid19 funds plunder.
Through its press statement released on Sunday evening, Oxfam is also calling for prosecution of culprits exposed in the 6.2 billion kwacha Auditor Generalâ€™s Investigative Report.
Lingalireni Mihowa Oxfam’s Country Director said there is need for urgency to cleanse the country of culture of theft, bribery, corruption and impunity that has been entrenched and continues to bleed the nation of its much-needed resources.
She added that the Auditor General’s report should present government with an opportunity to clean its rotten systems.
In his address last night, President Lazarus Chakwera assured Malawians that his administration will not shield anyone involved in corruption practices.
He further added that he has directed the Ministry of justice to expedite cases involving individuals who are involved in the mismanagement of Covid-19 funds.
Meanwhile, the Malawi police has arrested 14 people in connection with the matter.
