National Anti-Corruption Alliance (NACA) says government is not doing enough on fighting corruption.
This follows the elapse of the first half of a twenty-week period dedicated for the fight. President Lazarus Chakwera launched initiative in July this year at the National Anti-Corruption Conference in Blantyre.
NACA chairperson Moses Mkandawire said government has not provided adequate funding for the fight.
Mkandawire added that the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has also not been proactive in the implementation of the initiative, thus contributing to the slow progress.
Social commentator, Lucky Mbewe, also faulted the Tonse-led government under the leadership of President Lazarus Chakwera for doing fewer efforts in dealing with corruption.
Mbewe said he was unsure whether the 20-week initiative will bear any positive results arguing 10 weeks without anything to count on gives the impression that the country is not serious.
“We knew that it was a political stance. It is not the first time the president promised a lot but doing nothing on the ground. Let’s just forget about curbing corruption because we have no political will,” Mbewe said.
