National Registration Bureau boss fired: ‘Cadet’ Somanje services ‘no longer required’

Government has terminated the contract of National Registration Bureau (NRB) chief director Mackford Somanje as the Lazarus Chakwera administration continues to get rid of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) elements in government.

A letter signed by chief secretary to government Zanga-Zanga Chikhosi dated July 21, 2020 says Somanje’s services are no longer needed at the bureau.

“I write to inform you that pursuant to Article 1X of the Local Employment Contract which you signed with the government, your services are no longer required and have consequently been terminated,” says the letter in part.

Chikhosi says in the letter that Somanje would get a three-month salary in lieu of notice and 15 per cent gratuity following the termination of the contract.

In the run up to the court sanctioned fresh presidential election, NRB was accused by the opposition of registering under age children in the Lhomwe belt in what the opposition said was meant to give president Peter Mutharika a chance to win.

These DPP guys already rigged the 2025 elections by registering 10 year olds in the Lohmwe belt in the suspended 2020 registration. These minors will not have attained the required age of 18 in 2025 but will vote since they already have national IDs . Unless a due process is undertaken to clean the NRB data, be assured DPP will be back in government in 2025. This is their joker on which they are banking their faith.

This guy must be thoroughly investigated and charged for breaking the law of registering minors as adults. Surely in accounting we call this forgery, or manipulating data, he should not only be fired but arrest for aiding this to happen under his watch.

Some of these guys shouldn’t just be fired but prosecuted as well. What he did allowing registration of minors with the aim of rigging elections is fraud! Mwayi ndi supreme Court of appleal. Anatchera ku mwenzi nkhanga zinawona.

DPP is really worst party to rule us. This guy would have caused chaos if it was not for those intelligent supreme court lawyers! Allowing children to register for voting – he had guts to tell us that no one can audit the data base.
