THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) says it is still actively pursuing the case in which United Progressive Party (UPP) president Saviour Chishimba allegedly misappropriated over K153,000 when he served as National Youth Development Council (NYDC) chairman.

ACC acting spokesperson Jonathan Siame said in an interview yesterday that the abuse of authority case involving Dr Chishimba has reached an advanced stage.

“We are concluding the matter in which we are investigating UPP president Saviour Chishimba for alleged abuse of authority and will inform the public appropriately,” he said.

Dr Chishimba is alleged to have abused his authority by abusing the accounts of the NYDC from which he managed to get K153,134.41 in double but authorised daily and sitting allowances.

  1. I would have said leave the man alone but his surname alone suggests investigations must continue. Especially his surname

  2. Now that he has provided evidence to the Malawans, the ACC has grown some teeth? How about the maizegate scandal? He gave you all the evidence concerning this issue and why are you quite? Tell us how far your investigations have reached on this one as well or did someone from plot 1 threaten you to shut your traps? This is the reason the fight against corruption will be a pipe dream under the pamafi government. Before he you gave a dossier on maizegate there were no investigation against him, now that he has given evidence to the Malawans, suddenly you are investigating him for corruption since 2014? What happened in the three years ? Whether you like it or not, the Malawans will get to the bottom of this issue as this ACC is a baffle zone for criminals.

  3. ACC quite a frustrating and vindictive organization I don’t even understand why it exists if not for political expendience. What a waste of public resources.
