Blantyre DC suspends officials over incompetency

38

Blantyre District Commissioner (DC) has suspended three officials including a Director of Finance for failing to properly do their jobs.

DC for Blantyre, Charles Kalemba said he suspended his Director of Finance (DOF), Assistance Director of Finance (ADOF) and an Accountant for failing to perform their duties despite numerous warnings.

Kalemba said the DOF, Amon Kamala, has been suspended on grounds that he has never given formal reports and bank reconciliations for over a year, he is failing to provide leadership in the finance department, and he did not turn up in time for the finance committee meeting recently in which he is the secretariat.

Charles Kalemba: We need change.

“I was embarrassed during the Finance Committee meeting as the DOF had all documents for the meeting and members (councillors, MPs and chiefs) were made to wait for him for 2 hours. He didn’t provide any reasons as to why he was late to me and his cell phone was switched off,” narrated the DC.

The DC has also suspended the ADOF, Paul Khovulo as the second in charge of the DOF for failing to take up leadership when his boss was nowhere to be found during the finance committee meeting.

However, the accountant, Angello Namaluweso was suspended for failing to account for fuel money meant for pay parade in February, 2016 and for failing to account for revenue campaign fuel that was done in December, 2015. The three are expected to produce a report.

Thereafter, the Accountant will appear before the Appointments and Disciplinary Committee while the case of the two directors has been referred to the national local government committee.

  2. Amos, You are very stupid. You call this man a church elder? hahahahaha. Ku Blantyre, akunyengana ndi Eliza Mbeya (Human Resource Assistant). A married Lady to a business man. We have very concrete evidence. Blantyre had another lady (Alibewao) now she is with ministry of education. Her marriage nearly came to an end because of this man. Akafika pamalo, instead of working he is always busy kunyenga akazi a eni ake.

    He is busy abusing fuel with the DHO. For once, let someone check the ambulance log books against the fuel the DHO buys.

    some of us know quite a lot. timangosiya kuti there is time for everything

    Thank you.

  5. I have worked with over 7 DCs including Kalemba. The truth is Kalemba is not a good man manager. He doesn’t tell you exactly what he expects from you but in the end he wants you to do something. The issue of Bank reconciliation does not apply to Blantyre DC only. Its nearly all councils and all govt departments. Actually, councils have been failing to do reconciliations because the system (Navigator) had issues and has only been fixed recently. NLGFC (National Local Govt Finance Committee) is in the process of grouping the councils so that they must do the reconciliations.

    The issue of Reports / Reconciliations to me is a non starter. The three have been in the office for just about 9 months. Reconciliations have not been done for all I know since 2012/2013. It means they have not produced the final accounts since 2012.

    These three are trying to put the house in order and the DC is derailing the right thing.

    I rest my case.

    Thank you all

  6. That’s Dr Kalemba I know. He doesn’t tolerant nonsense hence he is called principle DC and he did the same in Salima. Good move Sir.

  15. Kalemba Charles is a failure and he has always been one and that is why he was chased in Lilongwe for trying to suspend the Director of Public Works. he doesn’t want to show his weaknesses that’s why he blames others for it
