The country’s Industrial Court has ordered government to pay former Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (MACRA) Chief Executive Officer, Charles Nsaliwa more than k500 million for unlawful dismissal.
The Democratic Progressive Party led government fired Nsaliwa on mere political grounds which led him to seek justice at the Industrial Court.
In its determination the court ordered that Nsaliwa be paid a sum of k42 060 000.00 he said to have lost at a time of his unlawful dismissal and also be compensated with k514 118 649. 35 he could benefit if his contract could run to a logical conclusion.
Meanwhile, the Industrial Court is reported to have been flooded with cases that emanate from various atrocities committed by the previous regime.
The tax payers are continuing to suffer for some of the avoidable grave atrocities committed by some misguided few selfish individuals who wanted to defend their stay in office using dubious means
A couple of days ago, the same Court ordered the Malawi Electoral Commission to pay the president and his vice, (Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima) a total sum of k7 billion in legal fees said to have been incurred in the high profile Presidential elections case.
