…cite poor salaries and housing as draw backs
Tension has hit Association of Magistrates as to who might have leaked the documented intended to petition Malawi President Peter Mutharika over salary increments and poor condition of services.
According to the groupings, top officials who include Viva Nyimba, Innocent Nebi and Kondani Chinangwa described the leakage as shocking considering that every discussion were made in closed doors.
AMA suspects National Intelligence Bureau Service (NIB) to have played a role to leak the document which was being prepared secretly.
Speaking to local press Kondani Chinangwa expressed shock as to who might have leaked the information for something that was done by three people.
He said if not among them, then some people hacked computers which contained the document. He further added that he is leaving in fear after he received calls warning him.
Chinangwa added that the document was leaked before getting signatures of all magistrates across the country when he received another call from Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda.
He cited, “Everything was done among the three us and there was no way anyone could get such information unless they hacked into personal computers.”
“We were in the course of getting signatures of all magistrates across the country, and we had just remained with the North when I received a call from the Chief Justice [Andrew Nyirenda] asking me what I and colleagues were up to, alleging that our petition was out and we wanted to topple government,” explained Chinangwa.
The document highlights poor conditions of service which includes low wages among Magistrates and calls immediate action from President Mutharika. And lack of official security and transport and poor Housing.
Malawi24 has also been tipped by insiders that the magistrates want Mutharika to be toppled.
