Parliament’s Public Appointments Committee meets to confirm MERA board of directors

Members of Parliament’s Public Appointments Committee (PAC) meet on Saturday and Sunday to confirm the newly appointed board members of Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA).

Joyce Chitsulo – PAC Chair
PAC chairperson Joyce Chitsulo has confirmed that her committee would be meeting to scrutinise the names of the MERA board members before confirming them.
President Dr Lazarus Chakwera on Thursday reconstituted the board following the resignation of the previous board.
The previous board of directors resigned on February 27, 2022, ahead of a scheduled hearing by PAC following a request from Secretary to the President and Cabinet Zangazanga Chikhosi for their firing due to alleged poor handling of the recruitment of Henry Kachaje as MERA’s chief executive officer.
