Malawi civil service in massive redeployment: Commissioner of lands, deputy and registrar out

There are massive redeployments taking place in ministries with movements at Lands and Housing and Urban Development affecting three top officials.

Apendezi Kachiwala
Remmie Palika
Muhammad Selemani

So far, Commissioner for Lands Remmie Palika, deputy commissioner of lands Muhammad Selemani and Land Registrar Apendezi Kachiwala moved away, prompting the civil servants to connect the redeployments to the “rubble” the Tonse Alliance led government wants to clear from the Capital Hill.

According to Chief Secretary to Government, ZangaZanga Chikhosi, “the exigencies of the service require that” they be redeployed.

Palika has been transferred to Ministry of Education as the Director of Infrastructure Management.

Kachiwala to Lilongwe District Commissioner’s office as the Lands Officer.

Selemani has been transferred to Ministry of Health as the Health Infrastructure management coordinator.

The officials have been told to “wind up” their affairs at the Ministry of Lands and arrange to report for duties to their new posting as soon as possible.

Those who have been moved will remain with the same grade, same salary and benefits.

Chikhosi, however, said the movements taking place are normal.

However, he could not state the number of civil servants who would be affected by the redeployments.

Removal of Rubble and Garbage

Remove those who bought tipex and Saidi was the one responsible. Reinstate the CEO for Lilongwe Water Board. How did Seodi White come into the civil service? Re-consititute MEC as well. The Industrial Relations Court is almost dormant and anthu akuzunzika. How do you promote chairpersons without finding replacements inu a Chief Justice. Milandu zaka zaka and simple cases like those zosafunika even much evidence like criminal cases. Let the other courts hear industrial cases as well and the issue of panelists must be reviewed. The ministry of labour should be professional just like energy, environment and others. Administrators have… Read more »

Your observation is correct, let me comment on your concerns. I am reliably informed that these three lawyers were recruited on the same day less than 7 years ago and they rose up fast from POs to Directors. They had a shallow footing.

I also hear it seems none of these are chanco products but Zanzibar

Draining the swamps before the swamps drain the drainers. What a good move by the Ministry to rid itself of the entrenched rot. By the way when are we draining the swamps at MEC, MBC, MACRA and ESCOM?

Seems to be more re-arranging rather than draining the swamp.

These people are still getting full benefits, and are free to cook up more corrupt schemes.

Why is it so difficult to fire incompetent civil servants??

That will do more to clean up the government then any number of mass arrests.
