Malawi chief spy Dausi  under fire over  nepotism charges

Senior  officers at the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) are accusing their chief spy Nicholous Dausi for being nepotistic and  practising favoritism.

Dausi:   Head spy

Dausi: Head spy

According to officers who spoke to Nyasa  Times  at NIB headquarters and regional offices, those that are having a smooth ride at the department are new recruits from the Lomwe belt and Mwanza where Dausi comes from.

“Just recently, 10 people from Mwanza were recruited and eight were immediately sent to South Africa for training.

“Everywhere the President goes is always accompanied by Dausi himself and these inexperienced agents which is a major concern to senior officers,” said one of the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, adding they don’t even know to whom these agents report to.

Another source said since Dausi came in office, he rarely sit down with senior officers FOR  planning or strategizing but instead he is always on the road with the President or some petty endeavours.

“With many years at the department, this is the worst director I have ever had,” said the source.

This, according to the sources, has prompted some officials to request the bureau to transfer them to other security departments.

Dausi, former spokesman of ruling DPP, was  appointed to head the state spy agency, with his experience having worked for defunt  para-military wing Malawi Young Pioneer during the one-party dictatorship.

    Palibe anthu atsankho ngati atumbuka padziko lonse lapansi fire them .Dausi. find ouy at YONECO Atumbuka okha okha

  2. Atonga says:

    I wonder why these stupid chewa’s are busy castigating northerners.kuyenda kuvina come and see your fellow chewa’s are living here.we are feeding them.they are coming all the way from south.half population of north are occupied by chewa’s so if u are throwing dust on us jst know that u are hating your uncle,untie,dad’s,mothers,brothers and sisters.shame on you guys who are posting stupid comments

  3. Busy Brains says:

    If you go into most of the companies you will find these northerners dominating. They claim to be educated, intelligent and wise. But when some educated men replace them, they cry loudly claiming to be marginalized. What kind of people sort are they? If we were given a chance to divide this country, the northerners would be alone. No one from the centre & south don’t want to be associated with these people. This is a fact only that people want to hide their feelings behind the fact that we are all Malawians.

  4. Busy Brains says:

    A tumbuka si anthu owasekerera bambo Dausi! Musawanyengerere kuti akuyandikireni, mudzithothola mmodzimodzi! Anatikwana nthawi ya Chihana agalu amenewa. Paliponse pamene pali mtumbuka, ndi chitedze chokhachokha! Anthu ongoganiza zawo zokha!! Ndiye ife mmati titani?

  5. Busy Brains says:

    So it’s news worth reporting simply because it is Dausi practicing it. If it were somebody from the north, it wouldn’t be a story. A tumbuka munapanga bwanji kodi? Kudzikonda agalu inu simudzatheka. Bambo Dausi, nawoni abakha amenewo.

  6. Stanley says:

    Thanks baba for hurting tumbukas but you will never be clever like these guys. Go to Mpoto and research in Estates you will c that most tenants are Chichewa speakers. You r lucky you got some Kwachaz but your brothers and sisters r getting food from tumbakaz so thula.

    Discuss ways of building your mother malawi, stop hating each other, tumbuka, chewa lomwe u r all malawians and am sure that given a chance with a positive mind set and unity, u can all work together with a common goal. And u shud knw that wat makes someone bad isnt the tribe he belongs to but it is within that particular person, look almost all terrorist r muslims but does that mean all muslims are terrorist? Ofcourse not. Goodluck ppo!!!

  13. chandiona says:

    the issue here is Bambo Dausi akukondera anthu aku achilomwe ndi anthu aku mwanza . ine ndimayembekeza kuti anthu muchita macomment ndimene ine ndimayembekezela koma kunenana mitundu kodi Amalawi tidza khwima mzeru liti. Bambo Dausi ngati izi zikuchitikadi ku ntchito kwanuko sizambino . Koma mnene ndi kuwadziwira a Dausi sindikukhulupirila kuti angachite zimenezo zikomo.

You can not claim to be intelligent and educated when you know what was happening underground. Shame to you. Up to now tikuvutika nanu mumakampanimu. Watch out. More fire Dausi

    For u Kate if you think and want to compare people’s intelligence whether from north an south you have no idea what you are talking about. I ask you once do ur homework well and by the end of the day if u r intelligent enough should respect malawians collectively other than regionalism.

  28. Nyamazi says:

    This is the man Dausi’s true character. He is the best tribalist in the DPP failed government.

  29. Thitherward Wendo says:

    “He’s always on the road with the President.” Who can blame him for doing what he does best? “Go – Drivaman – Go!”

  30. My fellow gud tumbukaz don’t wast tme with tribal attack,just keep quite and do what you know best grouping never help,work hard you’ll succeed in life. Let dem attack you.

  31. Angozo says:

    100% correct Chipoya, I agree with you, some of these old people have their own favourite bosses, the government can not trust those employed by PP in terms of security, they are loyal to PP.

  32. Captain says:

    A Florida if Mr.Dausi was your source so what ?

  33. Mercy Gogoda says:

    Assessing the manner this has been reported one can easily tell that the complainant belongs to the cry babies clan who are prone to crying even when a good thing has been done in their favour. In the developed world they will encourage whistle-blowing with the blower specifying his/her name. Without a proper signatory the complaint ends up being shredded. In most cases when you practice a habit that is detrimental to mankind, when you are out of office and you see someone seated in your place the first thing that hits your mind is “Is my successor not doing exactly what I used to do?” hence the assumption Dausi is recruiting only people from Mwanza and the Lomwe districts; what crap and deranged, myopic reasoning.

  36. Comedy Kaphagawani says:

    Those senior officers are liars! Dausi is a very competent DG, only that the disgruntled officers are accustomed to embezzling the Bureau’s funds since its inception, so Dausi tightened the strings. They are still stealing ofcourse, the likes of Charles Banda, a big thief! some of them are very incompetent, the girls are worthless, sleeping around with the male senior officers, mmmm, just eating tax payers money, please Peter, disband this Organisation,it is totally useless! if you cannot, you have just lost my vote come 2019!

  38. Wakwithuism 101 says:

    Well done Dausi. Nepotism should not only be practiced by northerners like those at ministry of lands/housing, or ILOVO or Kayelekera or many other places. This reporter is a northerner and a northener gave him the information. Wakwithuism is not the exclusive rights of Northeners; mwanva anganya inu. I was at ministry of water and irrigation when Chihana was minister, that was when I really realized that northerners ndi akuda ndi ntima omwe.

Why should a Catholic, SDA, Anglican, CCAP etc member hate fellow churchmate becoz he/she comes from North or South. I feel ashamed when I hear people say Malawi is a God Fearing Nation while its a Tribal Fearing Nation

  61. Vyapasi says:

    “And you too Brutus??” Just in case we all choose to be stupid. It is the insiders who are capable of killing the president. In fact if true, then Nicholas has all the ability and capability of killing Arthur. What he needs now is the “woman” as in Macbeth to push him to commit the crime. Hahahahahaaaaa!
    Palibe za “intelligence” apa ndatero ine!! Anthuwa akulira ma “allowance”. Well you can wait for another 5 years or more before your turn comes to enjoy the proximity and favouritism you crying for!! Hahahahahaaaaa!

  62. Mayi a Priscilla says:

    Only a president who is essentially a foreigner would think of appointing a character such as Dausi to head a sensitive intelligence agency . You need a sober and discreet personality for that position . Dausi is too flamboyant , too loud-mouthed , and too “common” to make a good spy chief . The salary and other perks he is getting are just a waste of money .

  63. Vyapasi says:

    The issue here is not about intelligence gathering BUT field allowances. Intelligence gathering is not about attending presidential meetings or political rallies. Wake up!!
    Go konko Dausi!! It is your turn to uplift people from your area!!

  65. Nelly says:

    The whole counter intelligence must be overhauled because it is failing to counter espionage in the system they only concertrate on allawances.Reporting to the media intelligence matters is threat to national security because other foreing intellinces can easy penetrate our security hence such officers must be dissmisssed if cought.

    A snr intelligence reporting to a reporter about the inside of NIB is totally a breach to security and is likely to be involved in espionage.Such snr officers are not fit for the positions they are holding,I feel they are disgruntled becoz they enjoyed most ndi Joyce nde pano zayang’ana ku ngolo zavuta.My advice is that if you have issues address them internally than going to newspapers

  69. Kadakwiza says:

    That is why northerners want their own country because of people like Dausi. Malawians don’t allow such people to divide the country. One Nation One Malawi.

    Some people aguements are baseless. Hw can someone say during kamuzu time. Chewas were all over in government. Don’t just say as a headless animal. All these senior lomwes in government joined during that time and most senior people in government were not Chewas. Chewas are not selfish that’s why they even voted for PP and DPP but how many lomwes voted for other parties? So who practices nepotism here?

  77. Chipoya LJ says:

    the issue of security is a sensitive issues hence the need for loyalty and discipline. with the current political atmosphere which is mainly encompassed with hatrage and jealousy, one can be ensured if those approximity to him are loyal.

    I dont see any problem if those recruited by Dausi are so loyal to the current administration of APM and its DPP. Malawians dont want to face another havoc at the State house. we regret that we kept some hynas in sheep skins in the Beloved Bingu era.

    All in all, GOD Bless Malawi!!!!

    1. Kenkkk says:

      Chipofya, you should re-examine your head. Cia, m16, Mossad, then kgb, etc do not work for an individual president or party, they work for the govts of whatever colour!!! Their loyalty is to the country, not the president or prime minister. Presidents come and go but the intelligence service remains loyal only to the state, nga nga, nga!!!

      If it is true what Dausi is doing, then it is very sad and unfortunate. If the reasons for his actions is to cause say mysterious fires or opposition accidents or harm, then I can understand him. I don’t think anyone in Malawi can harm the president despite all our political differences and Criticism of this govt. Democracy is like that!!

      But real intelligence service people should be very diverse and educated who can gather intelligence abroad and even speak More than one foreign language!! You can only do that by recruiting from Different tribes of Malawi for example especially those on the international borders.

      The loyalty is always to mother Malawi, not to an individual. Otherwise our intelligence service will be a laughing stock of the world/ Africa if it is not already so!!!

    Dausi cannot work with mercenaries. By speaking to reporters, you have proved that you are a mercenary and also proved that Dausi knows his job. A good director of an institution like NIS should know who is a mercenary and who is not. Who should be trusted/not trusted? Dausi knows this. I bet you are a tumbuka who got that job through stinking tumbuka nepotistic asses.

      Dont add tumbuka pple here, we r not part of Dausi.

      Your failures should not be added to other people. These people called Tumbukas are smart. You are enjoying independence because of their brave sons and daughters who fought for it, you are enjoying democracy with freedom to write anything here because of Chihana. Basop dont play with them, i for one i have great reapect for northerners. Malawi would be like South Sudan without northerners.
