As the prosecution case against Chikumbutso Mtumodzi collapsed over allegations of keeping firearms, government has reappointed him as director of information in the Ministry of Information and Civic Education.
The former presidential press offer under late Bingu wa Mutharika served as director of information after leaving State House between 2009 and 2010.
He was moved to work as deputy principal secretary in the ministry of disabilities.
Mtumodzi confirmed about being told of his reappointment as Director of Information.
His case of keeping fire arms collapsed due to inability to get objective material evidence.
The development follows after the State has discontinued the case of abuse of office against former Lilongwe City Council Chief Executive Officer Kelvin M’mangisa.
M’mangisa was arrested in July 2012 on accusations that he had drawn allowances for a trip to Italy which he did not undertake and had been collecting allowances outside his contract.
Ministry of Justice spokesperson Apoche Itimu said the case was discontinued on the 7th August 2013.
