Minister of Information, Communication and Technology, Malison Ndau, who is also government spokesman confirmed that Hiwa has been suspended.

“Yes it is true he has been suspended,” Ndau confirmed on Friday.

“I tried to find out from the chairman of the board and he has confirmed that it is indeed true Hiwa has been suspended,” Ndau said.

However, he said Hiwa has not been served with the suspension letter which he said has been written while he is abroad on official duties accompanied by Minister of Transport and Public Works  Francis Kasaila.

Roads Authority boar chairman Jackson Gomani also confirmed the suspension.

“The board has indeed suspended Roads Authority CEO,”  said Gomani.

He also confirmed that Hiwa is currently in Equatorial Guinea on official duties but will proceed to a forced leave on return home.

Gomani confirmed that an investigations report dated September 29, 2016 was submitted to the board  recommended disciplinary action.

The findinds of the investigations were also submitted to Secretary to Trreasury, Ronald Mangani.

“[Hiwa] may therefore be liable to disciplinary action un ine with RA’s Conditions of service and his employment contract,” the investigations report recommends.

The contract No RA/ CON/2015-16/09, which World Bank funded to the tune of US$303 823, was for the design and construction, and supervision services of various roads in Central Region and Southern regions following the floods that devastated the country in 2015 under the Malawi Flood Emergency Recovery Project (MFERP

The matter has attracted the attention of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) which said ot  already received a complaint on the matter s.

“The Anti-Corruption Bureau had already received the complaint before the time it appeared in the paper. It is processing and will review the complaint to see if there is merit to warrant its action,” said ACB’s Senior Public Relations Officer Egrita Ndala.

Somewhere and somehow, Malawi is being overdosed. God for sure is not happy with Malawi. We have stolen a lot what belongs to Malawi as a country. What would one benefit after amassing such huge sums of money when ordinary Malawians are suffering.
God start punishing all Malawians that stealing from Government coffers up to this very day. These people should never be peaceful, until their death.

That’s Africa leaders. They are the main architect of the continent’s woes. When Trump put it plainly as it is, people hate him.

I can’t believe this! Trevor was in form 4 when I was in form 1 at Robert Blake in the mid-80s and he was generally a decent man. Never could I imagine that one day his name would be associated with such evil practices. Sad and disappointed. And yes, he is from Ntcheu.
