BLANTYRE - Malawi's former postmaster has been convicted of corruption, an official said yesterday, with an anti-graft sweep netting several top government figures, including an ex-president.

Veteran postmaster-general Mike Makawa, 67, was accused of "failure to declare interest" in contracts at the state-funded Malawi Posts Corporation awarded to his wife's company, said Anti-Corruption Bureau lawyer Gabriel Chembezi.

Magistrate Innocent Nebi found Makawa guilty, with sentencing set for today, according to a copy of the court ruling. - Sapa-AFP
