Malawi government has removed Accountant General David Kandoje from his position and replaced him with Thomas Makiwa, formerly director of the Central Internal Audit within the Office of President and Cabinet (OPC).
According to press reports, Kandoje has been deployed to Ministry of Health to become PSII.
Kandonje is one of the key officers in the ongoing Capital Hill cashgate investigation.
But both Kandonje and OPC spokesperson Arthur Chipenda described the change as a normal civil service movement and that the development will not affect the forensic audit currently under way.
Kandoje becomes the second person to be removed from the position of Accountant General in under two years of Malawi President Joyce Banda’s rule after replacing Dorothy Banda, now principal secretary (PS) II in the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, in July this year.
The country’s donors withheld their support over the pilferage of public resources at Capital Hill.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
