ACB ARREST KAINJA AS CHILIMA DENIES INVOLVEMENT IN SATTAR CASE

Vice President Chilima who was reported that his name is among individuals who conducted themselves corruptly in a case involving Zuneth Sattar has denied the allegations against him.

Through a statement signed by his Director of Communications Pilirani Phiri, Chilima said he finds the manner in which ACB proceeded ‘very troubling.’

Chilima added that he entered public service to serve the interest of Malawians and that not at no point has he ever been involved in any perverted or criminal scheme as suggested by ACB.

On the same case, ACB has arrested former police chief George Kainja and Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mwabi Kalua who are also suspected to have received bribes from Sattar.

According to reports, these two have been arrested in the afternoon in Lilongwe and Mzuzu respectively.

The bureau is currently holding the two as we wait for new details to emerge.

Kainja was fired by President Chakwera this week alongside two others were relieved off their duties pending investigation.
