Road Traffic fires 62 ICT officers

Department of Road Traffic and Safety Services has fired 62 non established ICT officers amid heightened speculation that they were conniving to manipulate data to steal money from the government.

Director of DRTSS Fergus Gondwe: Contracts expired

The officers were on Monday told to bring back their uniforms to the directorate before they were told to leave for good.

But the director of the Road Traffic and Safety Services Fergus Gondwe played down the issue, saying the contract of the officers expired on Friday.

“These officers were on contract which expired  on Friday so obviously they had to leave. If they had issues to do with indiscipline we could have dealt with individuals,” he said.

The officers were responsible for the issuance of driving licence and certificate of fitness for vehicles among others.

Gondwe could not however say when the government was hiring the next cohort of the non established ICT officers.

Road Traffic is a mother of all corrupt activities in Malawi and the way they do it is as if it is allowed that is why the so called dobadobas will always be there because they work as agents of officers. These so called temporaly ICT officer were working as if they received special training on how to do corruption.
