Ansah cleared to exit Malawi for UK through Zambia

Department of Immigration in Mchinji says ormer Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah has now been cleared to leave the country for Zambia, from where she is supposed to connect to United Kingdom (UK).

Ansah heading to UK

According to the Department’s spokesperson in Mchinji, Madalitso Banda, Ansah, who is also Judge of the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal, has been cleared on Tuesday.

Immigration officials at the Malawi-Zambia border in Mchinji on Monday stopped Former Ansah from leaving the country—a move she said was a case of ‘persecution’.

However, judiciary registrar Agnes Patemba told the media that Ansah wanted to leave the country without notifying the office of the Chief Justice which is a normal practice.

Ansah wanted to leave the country through the border and thereafter travel to the United Kingdom.

She arrived at the border in a Malawi Government vehicle, Toyota VX Land Cruiser registration number MG 236 AK, but officers told her they needed clearance before allowing her out.

Ansah was the MEC chairperson when the commission conducted the 2019 Tripartite Elections. Following the polls, Malawians took to the streets demanding her resignation, saying the polls were marred with irregularities.

She, however, defied calls to resign even after the Constitutional nullified the results of the 2019 Presidential Elections.

On May 8, the Supreme Court upheld the lower court’s decision and Ansah later resigned. She is expected to retire this year as a Supreme Court Judge but is currently on leave pending retirement.

This is persecution of the highest order! Jane Ansah is a Malawi just like u and me. She is entitled to travel without being harassed by anyone including Immigration Officials. Come on you, the Lady is on Leave pending retirement. What do u want her to get clearance for as if she is being accused of a crime?

If she is on leave then she is still on employment therefore required to follow protocol. Sumangovwandamuka iai ndimmene ilili policy ya kuntchito. Vetsetsani phiri simalamulo a dziko koma zaku ofesi izi musalowelelepo ngati ma policy wo simukuwatsata. U can do better

Inunso a Wawa bwanji mukufuna kuonetsa umbuli wanu? umbuli ndiye kuti sukudziwa china chake. By law, any person of high profile is mandated to get a clearance from Govt. whether you like it or not. Jane ansah knew all this but kuderera basi. I hope mwa phunzirapo osamangokhalira u cadet basi

She has cases to answer so why the hell allow her to leave the country. By not informing her boss, she was simply trying to run away and escape the cells which she knows she is bound to go into. She should not be allowed to leave until she returns all the stolen n rotten monies she got from her boyfriend…mbavaa peter. She must be thoroughly investigated and not spared. She must answer the crimes of the electrol fraud she committed with her boyfriend. She was collectively paid over MK 10 Billion by Peter to rig the elections. She has… Read more »

She has another home that’s why she never cared for the the place most of us call home. Kuipa mtima.
Clearly she doesn’t care of a good legacy

Those at the border were doing their normal duties. So no need for the judge to say she was persecuted. Period.
