As the source was speaking to this reporter, the fire brigades were yet to arrive at the scene.

Mkandawire was the Judge who dismissed the case involving the disgruntled Malawi Congress Party (MCP) district’s chairpersons who were calling for an emergency convention early this month.

The judge was also the one who denied to perform his duties last year after government failed to provide him an official vehicle.

A week ago, fire also gutted the office of the Agriculture Minister George Chaponda, who is accused of stealing public funds through dubious maize deal.

Meanwhile, officials are yet to issue a comment on the matter.
