The government of Malawi has fired Chief Immigration of Officer Masauko Medi from his position and redeployed him to Malawi Police Services as Police Commissioner.
The redeployment comes barely a year after succeeding Hudson Mankhwala who is currently serving in the Ministry of Home Affaires as head the Refugees Unit.
No reasons have been given by government for the redeployment.
But unconfirmed reports indicate that, Medi has been fired from his position for under-performing.
In a farewell message to Immigration Department, Medi said it pleased the government to redeploy him to the Malawi Police Services.
“Officers, it’s now official, it has pleased the government of Malawi to redeploy me to a Police Commissioner. Thanks for your support during my stay at immigration. I enjoyed every aspect of professional interaction. For any reporting, report to the Deputy Chief Immigration Officer. God bless Immigration. God bless Malawi,” reads the message.
Meanwhile his deputy is now Acting Chief Immigration officer.
