Dust Failing To Settle At MERA

Members of staff of the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) have threatened to commence an industrial action and bar one of their executives, Alinafe Mkavea who is the Director of Fuels from coming to work if the purported renewal of her contract is successful.

The employees, who claim Mkavea has a series of offences against the institution, say their Chief Executive Officer, Henry Kachaje is working behind the scenes to renew her contract against a presidential direction on the 31st of May 2022 that no government officers’ contract is supposed to be renewed unless vetting processes have been done.

They further say the case is more worrisome
as Kachaje himself is holding on to a position that he got dubiously as was exposed in the leaked Ombudsman’s report which faulted his irregular appointment after falling short of the required qualifications for the job.

The workers are further threatening to leak the report which faulted Mkavea and engage the Anti-Corruption Bureau-ACB to look into both Mkavea’s issue and the irregular recruitment of Kachaje if nothing is done on the matter.

But MERA spokesperson Fitina Khonje has expressed ignorance of the letter and asked for more before commenting.
