Court orders MEC to pay former director Khaki MK69m over unpaid benefits

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Industrial Relations Court has ordered the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to pay its former Director of Administration and Human Resources, George Khaki, a total of MK69,361,001.16 in damages and unpaid benefits within 10 days of the judgment.

According to the judgment delivered by Her Honour E. Bodole the Deputy Chairperson of the Industrial Relations Court in Malawi, is entitled to damages for unfair labor practices, unpaid salary, gratuity, and pension dues, as well as compensation for the loss of use of a motor vehicle and the inability to purchase the vehicle as per his contract.

The court found that the MEC had engaged in several instances of unfair labor practices, including unilaterally reducing Khaki’s salary, withholding his gratuity and pension dues, and depriving him of the use of a motor vehicle.

Khaki had claimed that he was entitled to general damages for unfair labor practices, and damages for breach of contract.

Khaki, had been seeking justice for what he claimed was an unfair termination of his contract.

Khaki was fired in 2017 alongside other top officials, including Chief Elections Officer Willie Kalonga, amidst allegations of financial mismanagement.
