Chairperson of the Legal Affairs Committee (LAC) of Parliament Peter Dimba has resigned effective Thursday.
In a letter addressed to the Speaker Catherine Gotani Hara, Dimba said it has become clear that the committee’s efforts to provide checks and balances to the excesses of the Executive particularly in the fight against corruption have proved futile.
Dimba said he takes full responsibility for failing Malawians in that regard.
The move comes hours after the interdiction of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) director general Martha Chizuma over her leaked audio case.
