FORMER President, Joyce Banda, has challenged President Peter Mutharika to come open and let truth prevail on allegations that he is involved in a multi-million Kwacha corruption case.
The allegations have been revealed through a leaked Anti-Corruption Bureau, ACB, report that indicates Mutharika benefited from a K2.8 billion government contract.
The report illustrates that a supplier deposited K145 million into the Democratic Progressive Party, DPP, account.
Mutharika is the sole signatory of the account.
Banda urged the president not to be distracted by mere talks but stick to the truth and let thorough investigations clear his name if he is not guilty.
The former head of state made the remarks when speaking to journalists after a political rally that her People’s Party held at Masintha ground in Lilongwe on Sunday.
ACB has been investigating the Malawi Police food supply contract which was offered to Pioneer Investment.
The firm is owned by an Asian-born Malawian businessman, Zameer Karim, who reportedly deposited the K145 million into the DPP account.
