The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) is urging local councils to exercise financial prudence amid continued revelations of massive plunder of public resources.

The ACB continues to send out officials to investigate the squander of the funds the councils.

Investigating councils begun, following President Pater Mutharika’s allegations of corrupt practices by ward councillors, when awarding road contracts.

The Malawi leader argued that the corruption in awarding road contracts in councils, is leading to roads of substandard quality being constructed.

Concerns have also been raised on the mismanagement of funds by local councils, especially those meant for the District Development, and Local Development Fund.

In other districts where the investigations have been concluded, it has been discovered that massive corruption is taking place and officials are being prosecuted.

Director General of the ACB, Reyneck Matemba points out that the graft busting institution will not leave those involved in corruption scot free.

He further observes that the Bureau spends huge sums of money on corruption investigations which could be used for other developmental activities in the country.

“We will continue investigating councils across the country to ensure that people exercise financial prudence because councils are now managing huge sums of money which requires in-depth tracking so that people do not take advantage to abuse funds,” Matemba explained.

Currently the graft busting body is also partnering with organisations to educate the public so that they help in empowering Malawians by making them aware of what is happening around them and what they should expect from their councils.

    One thing is always that one of the most widespread incentives for making use of your cards is a cash-back as well as rebate offer. Generally, you get 1-5 back with various expenses. Depending on the cards, you may get 1 back on most acquisitions, and 5 again on purchases made in convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores along with 'member merchants'.
