Government has cancelled a planned orientation meeting for the newly appointed and promoted District Commissioners (DCs) and Chief Executive Officers which was slated for Salima today.

The development follows a Supreme Court of Appeal’s injunction granted to the Malawi Local Government Association (MALGA) stopping government from execution of a judgement by the lower court pending determination of the appeal on transfers and redeployment of some DCs.

Local Government Ministry spokesperson, Anjoya Mwanza has confirmed of the development in an interview with the press.

“The ministry will comply with the Order, accordingly, as the Attorney General’s office prepares for defense,” said Mwanza.
