CSOs baying for Chamkakala’s blood over Chilima’s case dropping

Some Civil Society organizations in the country have accused the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) of abusing his powers on discontinuance of criminal cases and have called for urgent reforms to protect the integrity of the prosecutorial process.

In a joint statement signed by National Advocacy Platform Chairperson Benedicto Kondowe, released today, the CSOs are also calling on President Lazarus Chakwera to use his powers as provided in the constitution to among others fire Masauko Chamkakala.

The statement by the CSOs comes after the office of the DPP discontinued a number of criminal cases including the corruption cases involving Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima, former President Dr Bakili Muluzi and Paramount Holdings Limited.

According to the CSOs, the recent decisions by the DPP to discontinue a number of criminal cases raises serious questions and there is need to put in place measures that would ensure there is no abuse of these powers.

When contacted, Chamkakala said he could not comment on the matter..

Meanwhile the CSOs have given the anti-corruption bureau 14 days to update Malawians on its position regarding the discontinued cases and disclose the amount of money spent on investigating and prosecuting these matters.
