Malawi Electoral Support Network (MESN) Chairperson Aloisious Nthenda has officially resigned from the position, which has been filled by his deputy Undule Mwakasungula.
Mwakasungula, a vibrant rights campaigner, will assume the leadership until MESN holds its elections in September.
“MESN is kindly informing you that Mr. Aloisious Nthenda voluntarily resigned as Chairperson of MESN on Sunday 12th August, 2012,” a statement from MESN made available to Nyasa Timesreads.
“His resignation follows his end of employment at Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP), since he was representing that institution at MESN,” a statement signed by MESN publicity secretary Steve Duwa added.
The statement also confirmed that Mwakasungula will assume leadership until MESN holds its elections in September 2012.
Nthenda was Blantyre Archdiocese Justice and Peace Coordinator and the presence of the commission was felt during his reign.
The end of his employment at CCJP was with controversy. Inside sources said the authority had no basis to end his employment but some top officials in the archdiocese wanted him out so that they could control the funds.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
