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.”
