Immigration Department set to purge non-MSCE holders

The Immigration Department is set to part ways with employees who secured their jobs dubiously on the pretext that they held the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE).You may call it purging or pruning because Nyasa Times has seen an internal memo demanding that its 2018 recruits should avail themselves for original MSCE or its equivalent (O Level) verification tomorrow, August 31, 2021.

This exercise is targeted at employees based in the Central Region.

Since the Tonse Alliance government assumed power in June 2020, hordes of people have lost their jobs for failing to produce educational certificates, which they claimed to hold at the time they were offered employment.

But this has not gone down well with the erstwhile governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), which believes the exercise is targeted at its followers.

If the DPP is afraid the exercise is targeting its followers then it means the DPP cut a lot of corners to reward its sympathisers.

This is 100% a good exercise and it must be done to Police (MPS) and the Army (MDF). Most of the officers were not recruited on merit but just being either a supporter of the political party or being a politician’s child or relative. We have qualified children roaming in the streets without jobs because their parents have no connections politically. Let them be pruned. Opposition parties as according to their name are there to to oppose anything, they are always crying babies.

This is a welcome development and this should also go to all Government Ministries and Department as well as all Statutory Corporations.

Surprised that one government department Ministry of Education or the examination board cannot research and provide this information. Certificates can get damaged over time. Possibly now that the national ID card is in wide use that all writers of MSEC should have a N. I’d be easier to track such malpractices. Though if an individual has proven himself in the position was able to complete all the training passed a probation period will a MSEC really matter. Fraud if a factor contract should be terminated.
