    What needs to happen is to revise the laws of Malawi and provide even stiffer punishments, the public financial management Act states that public officers who over spend or spend where there is no budget will have committed an offence but what is surprising is that the punishment is K100, 000 and 5 years imprisonment. You can see that with the monies that have been looted out of the public funds account can easily afford them bail or better yet freedom. Laws needs to be revised and the Acts needed to be amended to better protect public funds

    Just very soon you we will hear kuti wapasidwa bail.
    Yet a certain prebian is rotting in jail with a very simple case.

    Koma migwanya imeneyi idapweteka mizimu yochuluka but look at the sentences.
    Review our judicial laws,lets emulate our colleagues in Malaysia,Singapore,japan just to mention.They mean business when it comes to issues of corruption and money laundering
