Nandolo suspension at Blantyre City Council confirmed

The Ministry of Local Government has confirmed the suspension of Blantyre City Council (BCC) Chief Executive Officer, Ted Nandolo, for allegedly implementing salary increments without following required procedures.

Nandolo: Suspended

Nandolo: Suspended

Nandolo reportedly affected the salary increment for workers without government approval.

According to city bylaws, once councils make decisions on issues like salary increment, it is supposed to be approved by Local Government Finance Committee but Nandolo is alleged to have taken upon himself as CEO to affect the increment.

Spokesperson for the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, Mughlabase Mughogho, said each time a Council wants to implement salary increments, Local Government Finance Committee takes the proposed salaries to Ministry of Local Government for the minister to determine if the salaries are sustainable before approval.

“This is also stipulated in the Local Government Act but in the case of BCC, some procedures were skipped, hence its CEO’s suspension. He has been suspended for administrative investigations to be done,” she said.

Nandolo has been CEO for BCC since 2011.

    My observation is that APM does not like people that were close to his late brother but were maintained in their positions by JB.To him ndi mwikho

  6. chefourpence says:

    si nkhani iyi! Nkhani ndi yoti Alfred Chanza abwere ngati CEO. Its all a plot by Chanza and Lester Kaphaizi et al. The whole plot has been engineered with the help of some councillors. APM pliz intervene if you want BCC to tick and reform otherwise Chanza is am autocrat who manages with a secret service. This is from reliable sources.

    1. dave says:

      I know Chanza kuti he is incompetent to strategically take the council to another level. He looks evil though..that’s my observation

    ‘Affect’ salary increment or should have been ‘effect’ salary…Please Nyasa T, improve English grammer please. Dont use correspondents who have poor spoken English. As for Mr Nandolo, BCC will miss a very able CEO.

    The issue of salary increment is an easy one to effect implementation because the CEO was an interested party too.

  16. Boyd Kilembey says:

    Are we people saying it should now be OK to bypass procedures? I think this suspension is deserved. How can a CEO worthy his salt firget to follow a mere procedure. Does that not speak volumes about our calible of CE and their capabilities? I guess there was somnething juicy for him in the whole scam, otherwise why kupupuluma chonchi?
    s?

    Is it okeyish to break the laws of the land, even when we personally deem it fit to? Where do we draw the lines on what is lawful or not?

    Malawians should really stop this business of supporting people who have clearly broken the law or disregard rules. If this guy can do it, then where do we get the moral right to criticise people who break the rules when they personally feel they are doing the right thing.

    Tamusiyeni munthu sanazikonde koma anakonda anthu omwe amagwira nawo ntchito. I thought munena kuti waba koma kuonjezera salaries za ma staff imeneyo ikhale Nkhani? You local government officials unless you had some issues with this guy but as far as natural justice is concerned you didn’t need to suspend munthu and kumalengeza as if waba. Be ashamed and bring back this Ted guy we know him as a good administrator and BCC has been doing well since time in memorial

  24. BECAUSE OF THAT, THUS WHY MOST OF THE WORKERS ARE ATEMPTED TO ENTER INTO THEFT AND CORRUPTION PRACTICES.THE DEPLORABLE SALARIES MAKE THE WORKERS STEALING, TO BE LAZY AND PRODUCTION BEING POOR TOO.
    THAT IS NOT THE CASE, JUST WARN HIM, BCC WORKERS CHEERS AND BE HAPPY WITH YOUR LEADER.

  25. Maggie Lucius says:

    This guy is a genius. Mind you he headed Christian Service Committee at some point before be joined Congoma. He will bounce back for sure!!!!! Praying for you Ted Nandolo …. fired for helping the poor. Blessed are you!

  26. wawa says:

    local gvt ,you are failing to get rid with CEO of Lilongwe city council. CEO,engineer,DA these are very corrupt.. eswap project,recruting relatives and promoting them .remove these Apple. but it seems lgvt is behind such behaviors.councillors are also corrupt. pls help the council. payments are made without vouchers so there is a link btwn DOF and one junior accounts clerk.dog too shl go .DPP help council is at problem period or else transfer me to my home city Zomba

  29. Abiti says:

    Leave mr Nandolo alone,as far as l know BCC is de best council in malawi under de leadership of nandolo other cities are perfoming bad just bcoz of poor salary.

  30. DPP Propaganda Machines says:

    I guess he rubbed on the wrong shoulder of somebody at Capital Hill. Our CEO at ADL increases his salaries without the approval of the Board member but he is still in the office. He was also involved in a number of misprocuring malpractices even ODPP found him guilty but he is still in office why? Why is the Government being so selective in the administration of justice. Will corruption ended in this country when some public officers are being protected like that? I hope our President can do something against these corruption public officers. They are tainting our DPP Party.

  31. chris says:

    Koma we are shocked that you have suspended our CEO without pay why.nkhani take yomwei?he was fighting for us and its wrong to penalise him that way

  32. Geoma says:

    That was good for the workers and am sure the CEO knew that the salaries were sustainable. Bwana wabwino uyu sindinamuonepo oganidzira antchito anzake.

  33. Doreen Dambuzo says:

    This lomwe guy will bounce back.

  34. wawa says:

    politics that’s not the reason. DPP is behind that. all bcc staff pls do something its or duty to protect or. ceo

  35. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    Leave him please , increasing salaries for poorly paid council worker is not an offence. The whole Pariament did increase salaries from top to bottom ,heads didn’t roll .

    Sometimes its lack of management skills.These CEO might be qualified but not able to read and understand the procedures. U will find that he didn’t know that u have to pass the ministry before implementation. Zoyamwira awa
