President Peter Mutharika has appointed Reyneck Matemba as the new Director General of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) subject to confirmation by the Public Appointments Committee of Parliament.
Until his appointment, Matemba served as Deputy Director General, mainly responsible for prosecutions and has played the lead role in the prosecution of several Cashgate cases.
Previously, Matemba worked at Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs where he served as assistant chief legislative counsel, as Administrator General and in the Legal Aid Department.
“I write to inform you that it has pleased His Excellency the President to appoint you to the position of Director General,” reads a letter signed by the Chief Secretary Lloyd Muhara.
The appointment follows the exit of Lucas Kondowe whose contract expired last month.
