Section 13(o) of the Constitution requires the President to put in place effective measures which will ‘guarantee accountability, transparency, personal integrity and financial probity’ to strengthen and ensure sustained Public Faith & Trust and Good Economic Governance.    There is ample evidence of financial malpractice by President where existing financial control instruments and systems were deliberately thwarted and frustrated.
(C)   Mutharika would, again, be in a better position to Educate the Malawi Nation on how the below listed corrupt decisions have helped  to subordinate his self-interests to the interests of the people of Malawi in the running of the affairs of the nation (as per Section 88(5) of the Constitution)
a)     Mutharika accepted the selling of Chikangawa Forest to Mulli Brothers Ltd

h)     Mutharika instructed the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Malawi to offer Mulli Brothers Ltd a $8m loan on February 24, 2011
Section 88(5) of the Constitution forbids the President from using his office for personal gain or placing himself in situations where his material interests conflict with the responsibilities and duties of his office.   The onus is on the President to assure the nation his actions are above suspicion and innocent.
