In an effort to combat corruption in the country, the National Anti-Corruption Alliance has launched a campaign called Pay Back Our Money.
The campaign among others aims at encouraging all Malawians to come out with any information that may be relevant in catching those involved in corruption to relevant institutions
Speaking to YFM online, Executive Director for Church and Society Moses Mkandawire said they would also want to see individuals who embezzled or swindled public resources to come out to the public and declare voluntarily.
“We would like to see those that have been involved directly or indirectly in swindling and embezzling public funds to come at report themselves voluntary to relevant authorities and pay back our money or asserts,” said Mkandawire.
Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) Executive Director Michael Kaiyatsa added that the alliance is tired with arrests that are issued to intimidate offenders but are not tried before court.
“It is sad that we have corruption cases that have not brought justice since the UDF regime yet arrests were made, we want to see trials being handled in court and justice prevailing,” added Kaiyatsa.
Several arrests have been made in the country lately on issues related to corruption and mismanagement of public funds.
The National anti corruption Alliance is comprised of different organisations such as Youth and Society, Church and Society of the Livingstonia Synod , Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation as well as Malawi Law and Society.
