The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has summoned Former Lands Minister Kezzie Msukwa for questioning on Thursday at its offices in Lilongwe.Lawyer representing Msukwa, Chimwemwe Kalua has confirmed.

However, Kalua claims to have re-scheduled with the ACB that Msukwa should go for the questioning on Friday as he will be engaged with other court cases in Blantyre on Thursday.

Msukwa was arrested early this year for alleged involvement in a land corruption deal with Ashok Nair who worked with businessman Zuneth Sattar when Msukwa was minister of lands in President Lazarus Chakwera’s cabinet.

2 weeks ago, High Court Judge Redson Kapindu dismissed an application by Kezzie Msukwa and businessperson Zuneth Sattar’s agent Ashok Nair, who wanted their arrests by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to be annulled.

Msukwa and Nair were granted leave for judicial review of their arrest as they were protesting the manner in which bureau operatives arrested them in December last year, as well as whether ACB could enter into mutual assistance with an international agency without the Attorney General’s involvement.

The two were arrested for allegedly being involved in corrupt activities with Sattar.
