A former Minister in Malawi has been arrested for allegedly paying for his honeymoon with public funds.
Charles Mchacha, who was the Irrigation Minister in ex-President Peter Mutharika’s administration, is alleged to have used Ministry money for a top hotel suite for him and his bride in Blantyre after their wedding.
Malawi’s Nation newspaper tweeted that two other senior government officials were also arrested by the anti-corruption agency:
The Anti-Corruption Bureau says all three will be charged with abuse of office, neglect of duty and theft. They have all denied any wrongdoing.
