National Integrity Platform (NIP) which used to be a forum of stakeholders geared at promoting integrity and fighting corruption is now a fully-fledged registered company.

The company was registered on July 8, 2014, by the Assistant Registrar of Companies VT Chimbambo Mhango.

Malawi Economic Justice Network Programme Manager June Kambalametore broke the news with exciting on Tuesday afternoon.

“As you are aware, the NIS project established the National Integrity Platform about 2 years ago. The aim of this platform is that it becomes the Malawi TI (Transparency International) Chapter in the future. After jumping a lot of hurdles I can finally announce that the NIP has been registered,” says Kambalametore.

She says NIP will currently operate as a national contact for TI since there is a process before an organization is accredited as a TI Chapter.

The news provides hope for better anti-corruption fight since TI Chapter provides a stronger platform of fighting corruption than a forum.

NIP was borne out of the National Integrity Support Project which was implemented by MEJN and Africa Institute for Corporate Citizenship.

NIS project was involved in strengthening good governance for sustainable economic growth and development by promoting implementation of National Anti-Corruption Strategy and strengthening of integrity institutions in Malawi.
