According to the anti-corruption chief, these “powerful forces” have stolen much fund from the country.

He noted that the commission, irrespective of the daunting challenges, are determined to fight corruption to a standstill.

”The forces we are against are powerful because they have a lot of stolen funds with them and enough resources to frustrate investigation and prosecution,” Magu added.

”But we are determined to lead the fight against corruption. To get these funds and assets back has become a problem.”
