The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development has advertised a vacancy for the position of Lilongwe City Council Chief Executive Officer (CEO) despite reports that the title holder Richard Hara’s contract has not yet expired.
It is reported that Hara was deployed to eastern district of Machinga where he will be District Commissioner.
But he declined the post, asking to be posted to a location that is near his home Kasungu and has since
proceeded on leave.

The advert, which appeared in the local press also calls for applications from qualified individual for the similar positions at Mzuzu and Zomba city councils on three year contracts “which may be renewed subject to satisfactory performance”.
Meanwhile, it has been learnt that Lilongwe City Council Director of Health and Welfare Services Vito Mulula is being addressed as the council’s CEO in an acting capacity.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
