Chirwa is also being accused of diverting funds, including Constituency Development Funds (CDF), towards unplanned projects.

According to spokesperson of the councillors Newton Sibande, a letter has been written to the Ministry of Local Government on the same.

Should government not help them on the matter, Sibande said, they will settle for ousting her of office by force through protests.

Nyasa Times learnt that late last year Chirwa had been redeployed to Rumphi District Council as acting DC. But she had turned it down on grounds that she had been promoted by former Pres Joyce Banda and as such she should not work in Rumphi in acting capacity.

Chirwa, on 19th February 2015, took an injunction through her lawyer George Kadzipatike of Jivason & Co.  restraining government to effect her transfer.

Government had bowed down, opting to settle the issue out of court.

Chirwa acknowledged receiving the letter that wants her out of office but did not disclose what her next course of action would be.

Spokesperson at the Ministry of Local Government Muhlabase Mughogho could not comment on the matter saying she “was still consulting her superiors.”

    @Citizen X, it is not northerners who make decisions who should work where. It is people from some other regions who decide who should work where. Workers are just sent, and they dont care who is sent because they do not not interest at heart

    Even though am in prison I think atumbuka are just selfish and very useless. You will find most prisoners here at Maula are tumbukas, why?

    I see no substance in their case.I cant isolate any evidence of incompetence and misappropriation of funds.Give us examples. You have enblacketed your facts that need to be specified. So you are the first to be labelled incompetent for failing to articulate and present a strong case.We also heard that a new DC was posted to chitipa while the government is aware of the injunction saved against demoting the sitting DC.Surely this is a syndicate by government to use the uneducated dull counsellors especially those belonging to DPP to frustrate the sitting DC.

  20. CHIYAMBA says:

    MALAWIANS GO TO CHITIPA AND SEE FOR YOURSELF WHO IS INCOPETENT. THE COUNCILLORS ARE A TYPE WHO ARE DULL & ARE FAILING TO FOLLOW GOVT SYSTEMS DESPITE BEING TAUGHT. THEY SCRUBLE FOR CDF FUNDS TO BUY GOODS FROM THEIR SHOPS FOR PROJECTS THAT ARE NON EXISTANT OR HAVE BAKED. THEY WANT SOMEBODY WHO CAN SUPPORT THEIR PLUNDER OF GOVT RESOURCE & ENRICH THEMSELVES. PLEASE DON’T SMILE AT THEM.

  22. Citizen X says:

    PEOPLE FROM THE NORTH SHOULD NOW SHOW SERIOUSNESS OF DEVELOPMENT BY RUNNING WELL THEIR GOVERMENT OFFICES, SO AS TO SHOW THE REST OF MALAWI HOW SMART YOU CLAIM TO BE. NORTHERNERS ENOUGH TALKING ITS NOW TIME FOR YOU TO SHOW CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN MALAWI, HOW GOVT BUSINESS SHOULD BE RUN. AND DON’T TAKE BULLSHIT FROM YOUR MPS, DC etc. YOUR AREA IS ALREADY UNDERDEVELOPED SO IT MAKES NO SENSE FOR U PEOPLE TO ACCEPT BULLSHIT FROM ANY POLITICIANS IN YOUR AREAS. SO IF THIS BITCH CANT DELIVER THEN GET THE BITCH OUT RIGHT NOW, ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT. NOW LETS SEE YOU NORTHERNERS IN ACTION. YOU TALK TOO MUCH ALWAYS BUT CAN YOU WALK THE WALK????????????

  23. PM says:

    In 2002 positions of DCs were competed for through INTERVIEWS. But later POLITICS came in such that even those who did not have required qualifications found their way into the system through politics. I though with the DECENTRALISATIONS REFORMS UNDER WAY the government should have been serious on who becomes the DC. We require requisite capacity to implement decentralisation reforms. JOICE BAND era was even more chaotic, women who were ready to offer their assets made it. Just how do you implement serious decentralisation reforms with such anapproach
