State Department Designates Former Malawi Political Leaders

Officials are barred from U.S. entry due to government corruption.

The U.S. Department of State has designated four former officials from the government of Malawi and barred them from entering the United States. The individuals, who previously led Malawi’s Ministry of Justice and police forces, all accepted bribes from a businessperson in exchange for a procurement contract for the Malawi Police Service. 

“The United States stands with Malawians working towards a more just and prosperous nation by promoting accountability for corrupt officials, including advocating for transparency and integrity in government procurement processes,” the State Department said. “These designations reaffirm the United States’ commitment to counter corruption, which stifles economic growth and development, hinders investment, and erodes trust in government.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For State Department officials as they assess the influence of the United States and impose sanctions on foreign entities and individuals.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Blinken as he oversees the State Department and U.S. diplomacy.
