The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Deputy Director General (DDG) Hillary Chilomba is now the bureau’s Acting Director General, following the expiry of Martha Chizuma’s contract

In a statement, ACB Principal Public Relations Officer Egrita Ndala says Chilomba’s appointment is in accordance with section 8 of the Corruption Practices Act.

“The ACB appreciates and values the great work and commitment shown by the former Director General Ms. Martha Chizuma in leading Malawians in the fight against corruption,” says Ndala in a statement.

She has therefore, asked all stakeholders to give the acting director general all the necessary support.

Chizuma was appointed ACB DG in 2021 by President Dr.Lazarus Chakwera.

It is on record that Chizuma did not seek renewal of her contract, citing a need for rest.

Some commentators describe Chizuma as a dedicated ACB DG, but they claim that political interference affected her commitment, leading her not to seek contract renewal.
