Lilongwe City Council staff chase director out of office, deflate his car tyres

Armed police were called in to bring peace at Lilongwe City Council offices in the Capital after staff literally chased one of the directors from his office and deflated his car tyres.

Office locked

Office locked

Director of Engineering Julius Tsogolani was escorted by police from the office to his home and abandoned his car at the office as the irate workers had deflated its tyres.

The staff went on rampage and abandoned their work to force Tsogolani and director of Finance Jeremiah Sibande out of the council.

Sibande did not report for duties on Monday when the incident happened.

The staff said they will continue with the strike until the council fires Tsogolani and Sibande whom they accuse of gross maladministration and mismanagement saying they do not have the welfare of other workers especially junior staff at heart.

The two deny the allegations.

    Sorry to say but I feel that top officials in the Civic Offices of our Capital leaves alot to be desired. Engineer, whahat is he engineering just to mention him as one rote example. By the way have you ever been to their offices? Come and see what an eye sore their offices and precincts are.Yet these are the Graduates and well exposed guys entrusted to turn things around. Litter is every where, slabs, street lights, long grass and the list goes on NAY!!!!. Iam not surpeised at all and yet this is our so called Capital City. I am just next door to them and it’s really a shame. Do we really need the donors to make clean our Capital?? The guys are busy chasing bribes,corrupt no wonder they resort to illigal electricity connections. WAKE UP AND BE PATRIOTIC AS WELL AS INNOVATIVE EEEH!!! You may even start by pruning the overgrown trees to earn revenue and help in reducing deforestation,put up simple but better structures at Area 13 market to do away with the udzu makeshift restaurants, introduce trophies for clean offices.. locations; etc BUT eeh!! no corruption remember or even borrow a leaf from the Chalammanda BT guy. Please madolo are you not ashamed of yourselves eeeeh!!!

    This is Malawi where wosesa, alayila and chimpopa manyi have powers to force the directors out of the office but we fail big time to force failing leaders in politics, religion and villages. I wish Malawi had strength of these chimpopa manyi crew as we could have achieved a lot.
