Malawi procurement agency fires boss Hausi:  Ireen Mlewa acting DG  

Public Procurement and Disposal of Assets Authority (PPDA) director general (DG) Elias Hausi  has been fired and installed deputy DG Ireen Mlewa as acting head of the authority.

Hausi: fired

According to PPDA principal human resources officer Ellias Mwale, the acting DG Mlewa, who was suspended alongside  Hausi on December 24 2020, had been retained in her position after being cleared of any wrongdoing and will also act as DG.

“On behalf of PPDA’s board of directors, I would like to inform you all that Mr Elias Hausi is no longer the director general of the authority and that the deputy director general will be acting director general until such a time  when the position will be filed,” reads an internal memorandum by Mwale to staff dated March 11 2021.

Hausi confirmed he has been sacked but kept his comment close to his chest.

PPDA board of directors chairperson John Suzi-Banda, a practising lawyer confirmed  the investigations cleared Mlewa and that she is acting DG.

Since President Lazarus Chakwera appointed boards of statutory corporations on September 23 2020, there have been shake-ups in different parastatals where senior officials have been suspended.

It’s sad really. Most would not feel comfortable being appointed to high office without any competition at all and it’s demeaning when it comes to dismissal as you cannot hold your head up. The situation is different if appointment were after going through a stiff competition.
Was the PPDA Head post advertised before Hausi’s appointment?

Cadet ndithu wa mmudzi wa Ndalama in Thyolo. Nachipere Primary School. You are well educated and good Elias but your involvement in politics has ruined your professionalism. We know that you were forced into politics.

Is it a crime to be a DPP supporter? Do you want to tell us that those in the civil service do not vote? Mbuzi ya munthu.

A good DDP cadet and supporter is a dead one.

Is that so? So many civil servants have messed up their careers by peddling in politics. Sometimes they are greedy. Unfortunately, in some cases one has to do that. A regrettable necessity of post-Kamuzu Malawi.

This is not to say that Kamuzu’s era was fantastic. Hell, no. He was a brutal thug now languishing in the dustbin of history.

As a certifiably cursed and fucked-up country, we will continue to be a country of losers.

He really is a good man. I curse the one who convinced him to meddle with these politicians. It was probably during his tenure at MERA
