Union Pushing For Justice On Kunje’s Driver

Professional Drivers Union of Malawi says it is still discussing the next course of action following President Lazarus Chakwera’s failure to pardon Jonas Tewesa, driver of former MEC Commissioner, Linda Kunje.

Secretary General for the Union, Mphatso Mollen has disclosed. He could not indicate what they intend to do but previously threatened unspecified action if their request to have Tewesa pardoned was not met in 14 days.

Tewesa and Kunje were handed 18-month and 15-month prison sentences respectively for criminal negligence after refusing to give way to a presidential convoy in 2020.

However, President Chakwera released Kunje from prison during the festive season following a presidential pardon.

Attorney General, Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda argued Kunje was pardoned based on her poor medical condition.

He added the driver did not meet conditions as set out in the pardon guidelines that’s why he was not considered.

The issue created heated debate with some quarters arguing Tewesa got punished because he didn’t have connections, money and political influence.
