By Vincent Gunde

The Muvi wa Chilungamo Revolutionary Party (MRP) has called on Malawians, the international community, and the British Government to join forces in appealing against the discontinuance of the corruption case involving Vice President Dr. Saulosi Klaus Chilima.

The party has also sought funding from the British High Commission, the US Embassy, and the European Delegation to intensify its pursuit of justice in the case.

In a statement signed by President and Commander in Chief Bantu Saunders Jumah and Secretary General Greyson Mikuwa, MRP have expressed concern that Malawi’s poverty and unemployment rates cannot afford to let corruption go unchecked, especially when high-profile government officials are involved.

The party has cited the Watergate scandal in the USA as an example of how corruption cases should be treated with seriousness.

MRP has accused President Chakwera and Vice President Chilima of being aware of the consequences of this corruption case and its potential to bring down their government.

The party has however, vowed to leave no stone unturned in pursuing justice for the 20 million citizens of Malawi, present and future.

The party has acknowledged that all instruments of government are captured, from State House to the Judiciary, and that they will not hesitate to take the matter beyond borders if necessary.

MRP has vowed to ensure that the 53 senior government officials and 31 Civil Society Organizations (CSO) leaders, media managers, and journalists involved in the corruption case face justice.

The party has further expressed outrage at rumors of a K980 billion compensation package for Dr. Chilima in damages, calling it a reward for corruption.

MRP has assured Malawians that it remains a legal political party committed to fighting for justice and will not let the MCP-led Tonse Alliance government under President Chakwera undermine the nation’s progress.
