NICE district officer Kondwani Milowa said it was unfortunate that the councillors were delaying to formulate the bylaws.

“They lack seriousness. The district has many problems including high girl school drop out which can be addressed by bylaws,” said the NICE district officer.

Council chairman Andrew Piriminta said the bylaws would be formulated before the end of term of current counncillors.

He said the council does not have capacity and resources to do the job now.

    Malicious reporting.

    Do not rush to blame and accuse councils. Institutional memory and capacity may have been lost at district level, Ministry of Local Government has been there all along. Mpemba, SDI, is also still there. What is the strategy to bring back capacity at district level? Blaming, accusing and shaming? Not acceptable! One might want to be reminded that the weakening of local government institutions was deliberately done by saboteurs in political offices as well as appointed officials, especially at OPC. The secretariat provides draftsmanship and technical guidance to council committees e.g. DEM for LEA and DHO for Public Hygiene, Sanitation, Food Safety, etc. They must help get councils organised! Ministry headquarters can fast track it by developing prototypes for bylaws. This blaming noise is not helpful. You were not funded to blame but to build capacity. Just do it!

    NICE is a stupid organisation. They lack seriousness and focus

    When did our poor councilors become legal experts to formulate bye laws? They depend on Council staff that they are coincidentally biting every day. Malawi will surely not move with Peter and his Capital Hill boys totally against decentralization
