Govt says dismissal of Kabwila’s daughter is not political persecution

52

Government has denied assertions that politics was involved in decision to sack Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kabwila’s daughter who was an intern at the ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation.

Louisa Angela Kabwila had her internship at ministry of foreign affairs terminated barely a month after being hired, a development that some commentators linked to politics.

George Chaponda: politics was not involved

However, in Parliament on Tuesday foreign affairs minister George Chaponda said the issue has been blown out of proportion since the lady was not an employee at the ministry. He added that the termination of the internship was necessitated by lack of space at the ministry.

“Ministry of Foreign Affairs shares space with Ministry of Local Government and we have a number of employees who are being recalled from our foreign missions having served for 7 – 8 years and we are going to absorb them back into the system,” explained Chaponda.

He added: “We, therefore, thought of releasing interns to create room for the returning employees.”

Chaponda was also asked to comment on reports that the building housing Malawi’s embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, was undersold.

The minister dismissed the reports saying a Kenyan Tycoon had proposed to offer his building in exchange with the Malawian Embassy building but Malawi government turned down the offer.

Chaponda said: “We saw that it was not a good proposition so there is no point of selling that chancery – in fact Kenya is one of the countries where we have a very good chancery.”

  1. Please Malawians let’s love one another for this is only the country that we have as our home. For we know that political is a system of running or governing the nation so there’s no need to fire someone in political grounds for the yard stick which you measures someone it is the same measurement that you will be measured it might be you or your children or your grand kids whether you like it or not but it will happen any way.
