Viola seeks legal action against NFRA for ‘illegal’ dismissal

Embattled National Food Reserve Agency (NFRA) former deputy chief executive officer Gerald Viola says he is dragging his former employer to court for illegal dismissal.

Viola contemplates legal action

Viola’s lawyer, Yusuf Nthenda said what NFRA has done in dismissing his client from work is improper since the issues raised are being contested in a court.

“We are yet to get the dismissal letter. When we get it, we will challenge the decision to court,” said Nthenda.

Viola has been dismissed on charges of serious misconduct on allegations that he issued a Local Purchase Order worth K3.3 billion to Missie’s Trading to supply 10,000 metric tonnes of strategic grain reserve maize to NFRA.

The issue is in court where Viola is answering conspiracy to misuse a public office and forgery charges.

What about how he was employed. His friend Buluma has been relieved of her responsibilities at NOCMA. He was hired on the same date, similar positions and circumstances. Both stood for DPP in Chikwawa and Nsanje respectively. Both lost and were both appointed in positions requiring an appropriate process of hiring. Then the theft cases. I think he wants to pay court’s and defense costs.

How did he get there? Was he not a cadet? Mumatiwonjeza a dpp. Do you want to tell us that only cadets could get jobs the rest of the people ayi? APM you are stupid. I am still jobless because of you. By virtue of being from the north you thought I was an illegal immigrant? Only Lomwes were employable? Stupid.

Clean the cadets from embassies. Duwa Muthalika akutani Ku South Africa? Xmas adyere konko?

If the matter is in court, you only suspend or interdict someone. You cannot fire him. What did the Attorney General advise?

He has not yet received a dismissal letter. The lawyer nayenso wadya mfulumira mpaka nkhanga zaona. He has admitted not to have received the dismissal letter and akuti once they receive it, they will challenge in court. Pepani you won’t receive it pano

Do you “drag to court” your employer even before you receive the letter of dismissal? Come on, people, let’s be serious! I bet Viola is already dreaming of being a multi-millionaire from Malawians’ taxes after winning his “litigation”!
