Uladi Mussa: Dismissals should be approved by parliament

Mussa , who is also leader of former ruling Peoples Party (PP) in the House, said when he was commenting on the appointment of new Inspector General of Police, Lexten Kachama.

“I want to point out that this House should not only be confirming the nomination of the candidature of these personalities but the dismissals [as well],” said Mussa.

He said public positions should be politically independent and that they should only be at the mercy of parliament in terms of their sack and not the appointing authority.

Mussa asked Minister of Justice to “bring amendment to some sections of the laws” guiding the dismissal of Auditor General, Chief Justice and Commander of Malawi Defence Force.

MP for Lilongwe North East Maxwel Thyolera contributing to the motion to approve new police chief, said oppositon Malawi Congress Party is “concerned “that as Malawi Police Service is going through reforms, “the top leadership is being removed now and again.”

He said: “There is no stability on the post of Inspector General. And in any institution where there is no stability in leadership the reforms cannot be carried out.”

Kachama was unanimously approved.

The proposal of the Hon MP is important and needs to be followed to bring in sanity. Why should Parliament only approve the appointed officer and not when he is dismissed? Mind you, they only assume the position with two thirds majority votes to show that it is an important position.

I would like to wish our Inspector General of Police good luck. Malawi need you Mr. Kachama to bring safe and security in our beautiful Malawi. What I was waiting from Hon. Uladi Musa is that in Malawi we need to seperate these Ministries, home affairs and police. Though our President favours sized cabinate, I was expecting to have Ministry of Home Affairs dealing only with immigration and also Ministry of Safe and Security dealing only with police. This is what our mps should debate about.

This is a disease in Malawi,when you hold e certain position you keep quite yet you see things which might be changed.And when you are changed or demoted you now start to talk about those changes.Stupid behaviour of weak minded individuals.
