Commission of inquiry into Martha Chizuma arrest given 14 days to deliver

Chakwera, wants detailed report in 14 days

A commission of inquiry into the arrest of the Anti-Corruption Bureau-ACB Director Martha Chizuma has 14 days to uncover the truth.

President Lazarus Chakwera has instituted the 12-member team from diverse backgrounds to be led by Justice Edward Twea.

Chakwera has given the timeframe during a swearing in ceremony for the 12, at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.

They are former Ombudsman Enock Chibwana, former police IG Loti Dzonzi, Senior Chief Tengani, Reverend Elsie Tembo, Accountant Innocencia Chilombo and OXFAM Director Lingalireni Mihowa.

Others are legal gurus Gift Mwakhwawa, Maureen Kachingwe and Cassim Mdalla Amuli, Monsignor Patrick Thawale and Frank Kalowamfumbi as administrative secretary.  

Chizuma was arrested in controversial circumstances on December 6 at her home in Lilongwe at 4am on charges levelled against her by the then Director of Public Prosecutions Steven Kayuni.

She was immediately taken to Namitete police station and released five hours later after a public uproar and her charges have been withdrawn.

Chakwera says he trusts the inquiry team to tell the nation the truth about the incident.
