Trouble brewing at Malawi parliament: Plot against CoP Roosevelt Gondwe

With only July to go to the expiry date of contract for acting Clerk of Parliament Roosevelt Gondwe, underhand tactics are brewing at the country’s sole legislature.

Roosevelt Gondwe: Acting Clerk of Parlaiment

Roosevelt Gondwe: Acting Clerk of Parlaiment

Nyasa Times understands that Renard Mapemba deputy clerk for corporate has ganged up with Henry Njolomole deputy clerk for parliamentary and Chikondi Kachinjika the financial controller to have Gondwe ousted.

The once turmoil-ridden and highly polarised National Assembly has for the last two years witnessed some semblance of camaraderie and conviviality ever since Gondwe was engaged at the helm of the secretariat in an acting capacity.

Gondwe’s contract expires at the end of August 2015.

Influential members of the secretariat management has outmanoeuvred aging Gondwe to advance the agenda of a few selfless souls of the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) to have his contract not renewed on the account that the old hand in parliament work is not prone to manipulation.

A strict fiscal disciplinarian in money matters, Gondwe has earned himself the wrath and scorn of the majority of PSC and some greedy senior officials, with the resultant effect that there is a lot of mudslinging on the former diplomat, who has spent most of his time doing parliamentary work.

The danger is that the PSC is now putting up his job up for grabs not for the good reasons. It will be for good reason because the acting clerk hits the mandatory retirement age of 60 next year.

The PSC would like to use the vacuum that will be created by the yet-to-be appointed a “Yes-Sir” acting clerk to siphon and abuse funds like it were when the controversial clerk of parliament Matilda Katopola at the helm then was interdicted in May 2012 following abuse of power and theft charges in court.

The real issue is that Roosevelt Gondwe has brought in good governance.Kachinjika,Mapemba and Njolomole are thieves and they have their own elite group that benefits from all activities including external travels.We wonder why Mapemba is still there after stealing millions pretending to go for studies.He gets allowances almost on all activities.Imagine as a Deputy clerk he went to Zambia with Kachinjika just to see how they operate their kitchen.The one to retire must be Njolomole.He is tribalistic and very old and unhealthy.He even fell in the chamber.They divert money meant for other activities for their foreign trips.Just because Gondwe has… Read more »

This article is a raw stuff. There is no substance in it. There is no argument to suggest that the three listed people would want him out.

We have a lot if graduates he must go he has done his part, Malawi is not a one man nation. People thought that there was no one who could lead Malawi after Kamuzu but life goes, whether we get good or bad leaders but life goes on.

@ Keen Observor, you may be keen but you have missed some points. Nowhere in the article does it say Gondwe want to stay on. The article lack info. The only points it has highlighted is Gondwe’s fiscal discipline in finances for which he has attracted hatred. The three mentioned gentlemen have left it very late to conspire against Gondwe as he is in his retirement age.
