The Industrial Relations Court in Lilongwe has thrown out an application by one of contestants for the position of Escom chief executive officer.
Alexander Kusamba Dzonzi filed the application to stop the appointment of Kamkwamba Kumwenda as Chief Executive Officer for Escom.
Dzonzi, who is Board Chairperson of ADMARC wanted the appointment to be stayed, saying he was treated unfairly by the board of Escom since Kumwenda came second in the interview leaving him despite emerging the top during the interview.
However, Deputy Chairperson of the Court Howard Pemba has dismissed the application saying the matter does not fall under the court’s jurisdiction.
In addition Pemba has said there is no evidence that Dzonzi emerged on the top during the interview.
