PAC cautions government on selective justice

The Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has advised the Tonse-led administration to work smoothly towards ensuring that corruption cases that have flooded the country`s courts are fully investigated and concluded.

PAC Spokesperson Bishop Gilford Matonga said it has been a trend in the country where such high-profile cases are taken to court but their conclusion is always uncertain.

“The problem of Malawi over the years has been that we take a case to court and then the case is not known how it ends, we would want to make sure that cases of corruption are taken to court and concluded,” he said.

Bishop Matonga told YFM Online that much as government is busy making such arrests in the name of taming corruption, there should not be selective justice.

“As government is busy dealing with corruption, it should also be mindful that there is no selective justice, whoever is found to be in conflict with law should be answerable, whether in government or opposition,” he said.

The quasi-religious body has however commended government for showing interest in dealing with the vice.

“So far we should say that we are happy with the state that the government has taken and continues to pursue,” Matonga said.

Recently, President Lazarus Chakwera told the nation that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led administration squandered money over K1 trillion through corrupt activities.
