Government dissolves boards


By Wezzie Gausi

The government on Tuesday dissolved directors’ boards for various parastatals in the country.

Chief Secretary in the Civil Service Commission Zangazanga Chikhosi could not comment on the development.


But Chairperson for Malawi Institute of Directors John Kamanga said the dissolution of the boards was inevitable as the new government would want to have people to push forward its development agenda.

“You know as for Tonse Alliance, they put in policies like super high five from Malawi Congress Party and other manifesto from UTM: therefore, the leadership in such boards should be people that will embrace their manifestos that will be married to the government agenda of development,” Kamanga said.

He said he believes that the newly elected government has followed a right procedure according to the laws in dissolving the boards.


“For instance some parastatals fall under an Act of Parliament while others fall under the Company Act, so when government is dissolving such boards, they have to follow their acts failing which will be against the law that is why we are seeing that not every parastatal board of directors has been dissolved,” Kamanga added.

Further to that, Kamanga has urged the government to consider recruiting experts in various boards as that is the only way they will be able to bring change and transformation in the parastatals.

On June 30, the Government of Malawi announced that they have dissolved board of Directors for 60 parastatal organisations.
