Malawi President Joyce Ntila-Banda has moved a broom once in the Office of President and Cabinet leaving one Deputy Chief Secretary Nector Mhura out of the highest office.
Mhura, a lawyer by training, was the Deputy Chief Secretary since 2009 when late Malawi ruler Bingu Wa Mutharika was elected for the second term.
“Mhura has been given his letter signed by Mr. Bright Msaka the Chief Secretary; he has been sent to lecture law at the University of Malawi, Chancellor College with immediate effect,” senior government source has revealed.
Mhura before being appointed as Deputy Chief Secretary by late Mutharika was Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Malawi now he heads back as a Senior Lecturer, according to sources.
When the tenets of the constitution were ready to take course after the sudden death of Mutharika, Mhura is said to have been in a meeting with some cabinet ministers conniving to wrestle the arm of justice and get Mutharika’s young brother Peter to become an interim President of Malawi.
