Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has cleared newly-appointed Police Inspector General (IG) Merlyn Yolamu.
Last week, social media reports indicated that Yolamu played a role in some procurement contracts related to Sattar when she chaired the Malawi Police Service Internal Procurement and Disposal Committee.
But speaking after interviewing Yolamu on Wednesday, Public Appointment Committee (PAC) of Parliament Chairperson Joyce Chitsuro said the Committee engaged the ACB on the matter and Yolamu was cleared.
ACB Public Relations Officer Egrita Ndala also confirmed of the development in an interview with one of the local daily papers in the country.
If confirmed this Friday, Yolamu will replace to replace George Kainja who was fired by President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.
