Malawi orders High Commissioner, 3 diplomats to return home in seven days from South Africa

Government has fired four diplomats at Malawi High Commission in Pretoria South Africa including the head of the mission and they have been given seven days each to pack up and return home.

Reccalled: Professor Chrissie Patricia Ndasochera Kaponda

According to Foreign Affairs Ministry, Malawian High Commissioner to South Africa Professor Chrissie Kaponda, Defence Attaché Colonel Lawrence Mambo, first secretary (protocol) Kondwani Kondwani and Daniel Salimu second secretary (social services) were effectively out of work and must return home.

“I write to inform you that government has directed that the exigencies of services require that you be recalled to Malawi with immediate effect,” reads a communication from Foreign Affairs Ministry signed by acting Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Corporation Veronica Chidothe.

The letter dated November 1 2018 under reference number EA/1/3/55B says the recalled diplomats are expected to return to Malawi within seven days.

High Commissioner Kaponda confirmed she has been recalled but could not state the reasons behind the recall.

Meanwhile, the two that have survived the chop are those related to the power-that-be. They fare deputy head of Mission Gloria Bamusi and Rosaline Mapundula, First Secretary (Political Affairs).

Bamusi becomes the de facto acting head of the mission.

When you are on mission you serve the interests of the government.,Simple. If you are an opposition member you don’t show your colours in public. If they were printing utm materials while in Pretoria Abd sending them to Saulos then you got it wrong

One can’t serve two masters. SIMPLE! If they were busy sending printed UTM materials then they have gotten what they wanted. When appointed in these posts one serves according to policies of the government of the day.

Will the recalled diplomats be able to finish all formalities in 7 days? Clearing motor vehicles for diplomats may take two weeks or more. What wrong have they done?

They will obviously be there for more than 7 days and the professor will look foolish again. Muzipanga maganizo awumunthu. Inu mukapita ku America kokacheza chabe mumakakha kupitirira mwezi wanthunthu. Malamulo antchito samalora zautsiru ngati zimenezi. Mumalamulomo mulibe zoti a pulezidenti akhoza kupanga zimene angafune. Koma aMalisechewa atani?
