The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has asked for support in the fight to against rampant corruption in the country.
This comes in the wake of a Corruption Perception Index report released by Transparency International, Wednesday, which showed that Malawi has been performing poorly in dealing with corruption for the past three years.
Speaking to YFM online, Public Relations Officer for ACB, Egritta Ndala admitted that Malawi is not doing well in curbing corruption.
“Since 2015 we have had 31 points out of 100, which is quite bad,” stressed Ndala.
However, Ndala asked for combined efforts from other stakeholders, including the media and Civil Society Organizations in order to improve the situation.
“As ACB we are trying our best, but we cannot manage to improve the corruption situation on our own,” she said.
According to the index, Malawi is ranked 122 out of 180 countries; and it has 31 points, where 100 is not corrupt and 0 is highly corrupt.
The index ranks countries based on their perceived levels of public sector corruption as established from the views of the country’s experts and business people.
