15 State House servants fired on security grounds: Chisale architect of ‘unfair dismissal’

About 15 house servants and ground workers, who have been working at Sanjika Palace in Malawi’s commercial capital Blantyre since 2004, have complained of unfair dismissal from the State residence.

The workers are also accusing President Peter Mutharika’s Advisor on Security Affairs Paulos Norman Chisale of orchestrating their unfair dismissal.

House servants that have been fired, according to inside sources, include Damster Maoleka (Houseman), Saukila Nangwale (Chef), Stella Mwendera (Houselady), George Chitokoto (Waiter), Enos Kanyimbo (waiter), Henry Kambanje (Chef), Ian Christian (Laundryman), Leonard Mpasa (Houseman), Gladys Masanza (House lady), Violet Nyirongo (Assistant-housekeeper), Tonny Moto (Houseman) and William Tseteka (Houseman), among others.

Chisale is alleged to have unilaterally fired them to ensure safety of the incumbent President.

But despite being advised to stop reporting for duties, the house servants will be receiving their monthly perks.

Meanwhile, 46 drivers who were also removed from State House and reassigned to Plant and Vehicle Hire Organisation (PHVO), have claimed that their positions have been taken up by ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth cadets.

The drivers, who some claimed to have worked in the country’s state residences since 1980, say they have been unfairly treated as some have already been evicted from institutional houses without notices.

The first of group of drivers got their letters of redeployment from the Office of the President and Cabinet on July 4. Two days later, another lot of 15 drivers received their redeployment letters before the last group of 19.

“It is not like we are clinging to be working at the state residence but we are here at the PHVO premises just playing bawo because government has nothing to with us because our positions have been taken up by DPP young democrats,” claimed one of the drivers.

    onasiwelo!why judging others while u have a fresh of human being.if u can answer me who is dying today or tomorrow then u can continue castigating the dead bones of bingu.bingu died and we dont whether he is in hell or heaven.whether he died a sinner or a repented person is none of our concern.Almighty GOD knows everything as he also knows u better than i can do.in this case its better that we dont mention the MIGHTY GOD in foolish conversation like this or muzatembereredwa chifukwa mulungu sazakuonani osachimwa potchula dzina lake pachabe.stay wise and blessed!

    I fear for my country. I thought JB’s Government had no direction, but I think this is worse. After more that a 100 days in office, one keep guessing where APM is taking us to. Every day you wake up wondering who has been fired “redeployed”. Is this the work of his 15 plus advisers or his own works. Should I blame his many advisers? Remember too many hands spoil the broth.

    Why should we pay people for doing nothing? Why should we pay two people for the same post in some organizations. I thought it is common sense that one becomes careful with his or her expenditure when (s)he has less unlike when there is abundant and is reckless. Indeed, common sense is not common to some people. As a country we are struggling to meet our budget in the wake of the zero aid budget but someone thinks we can afford this luxury.

  10. KEERA says:

    I understand these people are jobless but not payless. Then how do they get paid without anything done? Is it cashgate in smart manner? Worry not you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. The problem I see here is that Peter said and we are just marking his voice. Let’s look back at things that happened way back but never spoken and things! Its to me normal! How can I work with someone I don’t trust, can you?

  11. Onasiwelo says:

    I think is stupid and un wise to say Bingu late kahuna daniel phiri was killed by either jb or any other person that is being foolish, it is an open secret that no body killed webster but rather he created his own death by behaving if as he was semi god, he answered a prayer in the north, yet not even angles are responsible for answering prayers, he chased some people out of the country and the country was going to crash, this caused him stress and lastly but not list he died on top of a woman after taking sexual drugs you who are saying he was killed are you not aware of this? If this so called apm will not change bad ways of his late brother the fate will follow him later or sooner, remember no amount of security is perfect apart from trusting GOD. Fear GOD respect him and his creatures then you can stay longer. If apm will start thing like his brother believe me soon he will be taken away from this earth he is but a mere human being just like you and me. Those who are thinking that dausi or who ever can protect your so god father you are cheating yourself and you are but idiots. Let him do the will of GOD and he shall live long other wise he will also go just like anybody’s else will and his soul will rest in hell like his elder brothers stupid cadets and mulankhos.

      If APM is nt fitful for president,then you go or take ur mum to b..muziwatso

  12. dadaboma says:

    Peter Mthalika is not fit for president. Why did some imbeciles vote for him? He has no clue how to unify this country. All he knows is pushing people around and replacing them with his henchmen instead of working to get our donors back and get the economy up and running. This man called APM is a real idiot. And the Lomwes are all smiles and ululating. This country is thrown to the dogs and is stinking and sinking. We should not just watch this; I’m happy we’ll soon clear this mess.

  13. cedric says:

    i know onse akudandaula apawa ndi atumbuka if u say munawawuza kuti vote wisery so you mean wat you did by voting the likes of chakwera and mayi banda you call it wisery. so if wisery why are they on the opposition side . so you mean being opposition side is that what u call wise . to those voted APM this is wat we cal wise descition coz their votes made APM to become wise . mind you we are different chimene ungakonde chi chimene aliyense angakonde.

    THESE FIRINGS POINT TO THE PLAIN FACTS THAT PETER MUTHALIKA IS NOT FIT TO BE A NATIONAL LEADER, HE IS TOO LOMWELIZED AS USUAL FIT TO BE A GROUP VILLAGE HEAD MAN AT KAMOTO VILLAGE IN THYOLO. BAKILI MULUZI REPLACED LATE KAMUZU BANDA AT STATE HOUSE AND SO TOO WAS JOYCE BANDA WHO REPLACED LATE BINGU MUTHALIKA BUT MALAWIANS NEVER HEARD FIRINGS OF THIS MAGNITUDE THAT ARE BEING WITNESSED TODAY.

    THE ONLY SOLUTION IS FOR ALL OF US MALAWIANS TO GET UNITED AND GET RID OF THIS LOMWELIZED PRESIDENT FROM STATE HOUSE IN 2019. IT IS VERY POSSIBLE CONSIDERING THAT THESE POMPOUS AND UNGRATEFUL LOMWES ARE JUST AROUND 1MILLION.PETER MUTHALIKA IS AT STATE HOUSE BECAUSE OF THE VOTES FROM LOWER SHIRE, BLANTYRE, YAO BELT, NTCHEU, NKHOTAKOTA, LILONGWE URBAN,CHITIPA CENTRAL, CHITIPA EAST, NKHATABAY WEST, KARONGA NORTH, KARONGA CENTRAL AND LIKOMA.

    Drivers working for state house since 1980, the Kamuzu era? That’s 34 years. How safe can that be for our president? Some of these people should have retired years ago.It’s also true that those house men, house women, house children etc are a security risk. What purpose do they truly serve? Especially if they worked under the previous administrations. Can they be trusted? We don’t want to wake up one of these days and hear that APM has had a ”heart attack”. State House are within their rights getting rid of this deadwood. Just give them nice packages and let them go…..

I wish i were born in Zambia even Mozambique am ashamed with this land of Need Support popularly called Quota System. The Envy Hotheart of Africa. Amene Sauka anali Prophet. Check all national Anthems only Malawi has envy & disease. This is indeed diseased country.

  33. Ogode ogode says:

    APM this is a positive move considering how your brother was killed by the JB and company. Please make sure you are living in a friendly environment. Imagine JB is just following you anywhere. Clear questionable penemungus there. Ishiiiii. Beaten once my dear, twice shy even thrice shy? Dausi is now working. He is putting everyone around APM under microscope critically. Ndikumva kukoma zedi.

    4. Indoda isizibonela, says:

      bingu died of cardiac arrest,the heart stopped functioning and the respiratory system followed too,he had a prior history of a heart disease,he had some political stress,they tried to resuscitate him but no help,took him to kamuzu central but there was no adrenaline,a drug used to stimulate the heart,he passed on.and the qualified doctors said the cause of death was JB? what sort of medical science is that? how can JB tamper with Bingu’s heart and disturb the normal pumping rythmn of the heart? grow up malawians

Chijoyisi is out here like a hungry lion making sure that you should not finish your term. So, be careful.

      How do you tell that your man will be secure with the few reminants at State Houses? You will endup by running away from your own shadows. We should learn to be true Malawians who will love each other. Vengance will never help us to ‘Develope’.

  52. OGO!! says:

    MAlawi this can’t go on. You can’t question commitment of people that have worked in State residencies since 1980 (over 30 years).

    Why didn’t Kamuzu, Bakili, Bingu and Joyce question their loyalty and commitment? Why this government? Why Chisale and who is Chisale? WHat powers does he have to dismiss such people? Are they not Govt employees? This is the problem we have in Malawi kumalembana ntchito pachiweniweni without proper background, we try to express ma powers when ther is no need to.

    This DPP govt should get a taste of their own medicine. Muvi oyanganila umalowa mmaso. By the time Malawians decide to act, it will be too late..zinthu zitonongekelatu..everybody with power will be of their tribe and clan and ma petitions azizapita padela. This is the time before they start nesting and hatching zosafunika.

    Something has to give..
