Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament has asked the Anti-Corruption Bureau to prosecute Dr Bakili Muluzi’s corruption case to end or withdraw if they feel it is no longer prosecutable.
Speaking in an interview with Radio Islam, after the office of the Attorney General Presented a progress report on the case, the committee’s Chairperson, Yusuf Nthenda, said the case is draining tax payer’s money.
According to Nthenda there is nothing new in the report regarding the case which has been hanging for the past 15 years.
Nthenda said the pace that the case is taking the only option is for the ACB to withdraw or prosecute it saying justice delayed is justice denied.
Among other the attorney general’s report says they wait a determination from the Supreme Court on the issues that were referred to from the High Court.
However Nthenda said the Supreme Court should consider the substantive case saying what is in the Supreme Court is not an appeal on the substantive case as there is no judgment from the high court on the matter yet.
Meanwhile, Anti-Corruption Bureau says is yet to receive communication on the matter.
