Namalomba clings to public post at Egenco while contesting for parliament seat 

Chief Financial Controller at the country’s main producer of power, Electricity Generation Company (Egenco), Shadreck Namalomba continues to hold a senior public job while he is contesting for a parliamentary seat on a governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) parliamentary ticket, contrary to public service  regulations.

Namalomba on DPP campaign

Namalomba is contesting in the Mangochi South West Constituency parliamentary seat while still working as Chief Financial Officer at Egenco, a public entity that was created after the delinking of ESCOM, the later being known for being the ruling party’s main cash cow.

As to why Namalomba has been allowed to continue managing Egenco funds while running on the DPP ticket, is anything but a secret.

A senior member of Mulakho wa Alomwe and an organizing committee chairperson for its most recent annual gathering, Namalomba, is part of a clique of DPP’s blue-eyed boys wh oget appointed to plump jobs, usually without any interview.

Amongst his prior lucrative appointment was one at the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) where he wielded a lot of muscle.

The problem is not the institution but rather the President for condoning such blantant disregard for the law. Another rotten fish Chipungu who also holds a public office but is aspiring as MP. It all stems down to leadership quality. He forgets that he is president of Malawi and not Lomwe belt. What he is doing now will be emulated by future generations. Soon even the private sector will be marred with regionalism and nepotism. We really need to drain the swamp.

This is a DPP plant to ensure every tambala is squeezed out of Egenco. And what do you expect from a parastatal chaired by the government’s Chief Secretary? And who are the Board members? Kuba basi.

Shardeck is an accountant. If there is anybody who is sane, this man should be reported to Institute of Chartered Accountants of Malawi (ICAM ) so that he is deregistered. Secondly, CSOs should sue him to pay back all the fat money he has pocketed since he went into this position todate.

I refer you to highcourt election case 3/2014 involving Dr Dam Safuli vs MEC. The judge determined that a University Lecturer (Dr Safuli was a Lecturer at MZUNI) is not a public officer.
I don’t see any difference between MZUNI and EGENCO.
