Information reaching Faceofmalawi indicates that the newly elected President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has withdrawn the appointment of Duncan Mwapasa as Inspector General of the Malawi Police Service.
Former President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika appointed Mwapasa in 2019 and was waiting Parliament confirmation.
The appointment of Mwapasa raised eyebrows and the National Assembly led by the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) vehemently rejected him.
The MPs accused Mwapasa of being Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadet.
Inside sources say Chakwera has opted for George Kainja who was recently appointed as Deputy Ambassador to Zimbabwe.
Kainja obtained an injunction restraining the appointing authority against deploying him to Zimbabwe.
He has been in the police service for 30 years.
