Court rules against Buluma on employment at Nocma
The High Court in Blantyre has dismissed an application for a judicial review that National Oil Company of Malawi (Nocma) former deputy chief executive officer (DCEO) Helen Buluma made against the Ombudsman’s decision to nullify her employment.
This means Buluma’s employment remains nullified and invalid according to the court ruling.
Buluma applied for the judicial review on the basis that she was not responsible for her own recruitment and accused Malera of victimising a citizen contrary to the mandate of her office which is protecting citizens.
Among other arguments, she also contended that her employment was an issue within the context of private law.
But in his ruling, High Court judge Mike Tembo says the former Nocma DCEO failed to provide a legal basis for her arguments.
Tembo has also ruled that there are no serious issues fit for further investigation at a full hearing.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
