BLANTYRE – President Lazarus Chakwera has urged faith leaders, media, NGOs, social media influencers and the diaspora to join hands and work together in the fight against corruption.
He said this in Blantyre earlier on Monday, as he presided over the 2-day National Anti-Corruption Conference at Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre which was attended by Kenyan lawyer Professor PLO Lumumba.
“The two-day National Anti-Corruption Conference in Blantyre is an opportunity to detect gaps in the fight against the vice as we are resetting the nation’s moral tone to end corruption,” Chakwera said.
Chakwera added that it remains his administration’s persuasion that the best way to end corruption is by sustaining honest dialogue on how to create an enabling environment for everyone to do their job.
“Your government, under my constitutionally sanctioned powers, will continue to inspire the nation so that we collectively fight corruption without sparing anyone involved,” he explained.
In his remarks, Minister of Justice, Titus Mvalo, pledged continued support in promoting justice, transparency and accountability to help in the fight against corruption in the country.
The conference has brought together various stakeholders from ACB, government, religious leaders, academia, civil society, international speakers and the media, to assess the country’s position as well as discuss the role of different stakeholders in the fight against corruption.
It is being held under the theme “Resetting the Nation’s Moral Tone.”
