The National Anti-Corruption Alliance is reacting angrily to the questionable arrest and release of the Anti-Corruption Bureau-ACB Director Martha Chizuma.

Earlier today, heavily armed police officers raided Chizuma’s residence in Lilongwe where they arrested the ACB boss and took her to Namitete Police.

Five hours later, she was formally charged and released on police bail.

In a statement, National Police Spokesperson Peter Kalaya indicates that they made the arrest following a complaint that was lodged by the Director of Public Prosecutions Steven Kayuni.

Kayuni alleged that he was injured by allegations made by Chizuma in a leaked audio clip back in January.

Her detention follows the arrests of some top government officials linked to the Zuneth Sattar corruption case.

Speaking in an interview with Capital FM, chairperson for the National Anti-Corruption Alliance, Moses Mkandawire has underscored the importance of insuring the safety of Chizuma.

Mkandawire has explained that they are still on the ground to get a clear understanding of her arrest and release.
