The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) says it has received overwhelming tips on suspected corrupt practices done by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.
HRDC Chairperson, Gift Trapence, has told journalists in Lilongwe on Wednesday that their whistle blowing initiative has received a thousand tips from majority Malawians.
“We have to thank Malawians for tirelessly furnishing us with the required details on corrupt practices perpetrated by the previous administration through our whistle blowing initiative,” expressed satisfaction Trapence.
According to Trapence, it is worrying that despite reporting such cases to the Anti-Corruption Bureau, the graft bursting body is addressing the tips at a snail’s pace.
“Nonetheless, ACB is letting us down in this fight, the bureau is taking much time to follow up most of the cases we have been reporting to them,” wondered the vocal HRDC Chairperson.
The coalition has since expressed commitment in ensuring that public officers are must be held accountable when executing their duties.
“We haven’t stopped holding authorities accountable and we will continue as HRDC the way we have been conducting our duties so Malawians should know that the Coalition is independent and nonpartisan,” stressed Trapence.
HRDC has since called upon Malawians to institute their own assessment upon the expiry of 100 days of Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance administration.
