Mister of Local Government Tarciscious Gowelo: Petition received

Mister of Local Government Tarciscious Gowelo: Petition received

The group which staged a marched today on April 30, 2015 from Nkhotakota ADMARC to the DC’s office before giving their petition to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament of Nkhotakota central constituency Peter Mazizi.

The concerned citizens need an immediate transfer of the DC Felix Mkandawire, Griffin Mhango Director of Planning and Development (DPD), Lester Nyambosi Lands officer and Mr Chavinda of Nation Intelligence Bureau (NIB).

Upon arrival at the DC’s office the matchers were disappointed to find all offices closed, to them the DC and others voluntarily transferred.

According to the petition seen, the DC does not comply with the local government act which gives people in the district to access all information related to plans and all transactions the assembly does for the development of the district.

On his remarks, chairperson of the group Thomson Halidi said “Nkhotakota is for us and we need the ministry to give us other people who will comply with what the local act stipulates.

The assembly needs to follow the democratic values of accountability and transparency but   unfortunately the current management has failed to observe hence the transfer of these people.

“We petitioned the ministry over the disagreement which erupted due to corrupt practices on the allocation of plots on airfield. We are optimistic we are going to be answered soon.”

On the DPD Griffin Mhango the group is alleging of being master-minder of disputes on the allocation of plots on the airfield.

Receiving the petition MP Peter Mazizi said people’s concerns are going to be delivered to the right people.

The concerned citizens further expressed unlawfully participation of Lands Officer Lester Nyambosi and Chavinda of NIB on the plot allocation on the airfield.

“This is happening within my constituency as such I couldn’t stay home but to be here. I appreciate for this peaceful march, this is their constitutional right,” concluded Mazizi.

The wrangle on the airfield started early this year following the successful list names which the Nkhotakota assembly released.

On the list according to the concerned citizens many people who applied were missing and many heads of different offices were among the successful people.

Nkhotakota inactive airfield has been demarcated for new bus depot, business and residential plots.

fools of people, instead of dreaming how to acquire wealthy and manage the limited resources we have, you are busy tussling. Many people are jobless in your district and you take it as a very normal situation- fools. Fighting for positions won’t help you either, somebody was denied of land allocation, hence, mobilizing innocent en un educated people to rally for such demonstrations. I don’t think such area will suffice everybody in Nkhotakota district. Maybe it might be the member of parliament who is behind this- foolish ego…
