ACB Arrests Former Agriculture Minister Chaponda: Malawi Zero Tolerance To Corruption On Course

Chaponda launches smear campaign against VP Chilima

Former Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development, Dr. George Chaponda has been arrested.

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) confirmed this development saying he will be taken to court shortly.

Dr Chaponda was recently dropped from Cabinet by President Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika pending investigations into his involvement in the maize importation process from Zambia.

He was implicated in this controversial  maize scam.

He arrived at the ACB in the company of his lawyer, Jai Banda.

The ACB previously conducted a raid at Dr. Chaponda’s house where documents and huge stacks of money were confiscated.

His office at Capital hill caught fire,a development which others described as an attempt to destroy evidence.
