The Anti Corruption Bureau has postponed the interview it was due to conduct with former President Peter Mutharika over the alleged abuse of the President’s Taxpayer Identification Number. A statement signed by Egritta Ndala, Public Relations Officer for ACB says the interview which was due to commence on Tuesday 20th July has been shifted to 27th July
The Anti Corruption Bureau announced a week ago that it will interview former President Peter Mutharika as part of the ongoing probe into the alleged abuse of his Taxpayer Identification Number during his time as president. It is alleged that between 2018 and 2019, the former president’s access number was used to import 1.2 million bags of cement worth K5.1 billion duty-free.
Meanwhile , they were strong rumours that some DPP cadets were planning to flock to Mutharika’s Page House in Mangochi in what they were saying would be to protect the former leader from any possible arrest. Many analysists laughed at the idea as ACB had already reiterated that the questioning of Mutharika was to be done virtually due to Covid measures.
