Kampondeni was speaking during the weekly brief at the Sanjika Palace in Blantyre on Monday.
He said Dr Chakwera takes the issue of fighting corruption seriously that's why he is taking his time to ensure there's a right candidate at the helm of ACB.
Kampondeni said, "a panel shortlists three candidates. Those three names are submitted to the President and the law empowers the President to appoint anyone on that list of three.
"If the President is not satisfied with any of the names, or is not satisfied how the process of shortlisting was done, the law, empowers the President to return the names to the Minister of Justice and requires him to start the process from scratch. So as we speak, the names have been submitted and the President is reviewing the recommendations of the panel and then he will be making his decisions related to that accordingly."
