Former Cabinet minister Uladi Mussa is reportedly no longer serving as Special Presidential Adviser on Parliamentary Affairs.
However, The Daily Times was unable to get confirmation if Mussa has resigned or been removed.
Mussa, who is also Democratic Progressive Party Central Region vice president, hit headlines recently when the United States government banned him and his spouse from entering the country for his alleged involvement in a passport scandal while serving as Home Affairs minister.
Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC), which announced Mussa’s appointment alongside that of Cabinet ministers on June 19 2019, was not readily available to confirm the development.
However, the President’s Secretary, Mgeme Kalilani, Monday said OPC had confirmed to him that Mussa was no longer the occupant of the position.
OPC announced the appointment of Mussa alongside Goodall Gondwe (Special Presidential Adviser on Finance and Development), Grezelder Jeffrey (Special Adviser on Women Affairs) and Chris Daza (Special Adviser on Governance).
Anti-Corruption Bureau arrested Mussa in 2017 for his alleged negligence in the scandal connected to issuance of Malawi passports to foreigners from countries such as Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda.
