Malawi Govt obtains injunction against police on interdicting Chilima’s security staff

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Malawi government on Thursday obtained a court injunction restraining the Malawi Police Service from interdicting 40 security officers who were assigned to Vice President Saulos Chilima.

The injunction follows a memo circulation on the social media which The Maravi Post has confirming the interdiction of the 40 officers on half salary pay.

This comes after, last year, the Malawi Police Service withdrew the 40 guards from the vice president’s office and redeployed them to various police stations across the country.

The move left Chilima with seven security guards for two official residences at Area 12 in Lilongwe and Mudi House in Blantyre as well as his office at Capital Hill and his motorcade.

However, the police officers continued working as Chilima’s guards after the vice president obtained a court order stopping government from cutting his security detail.

On Tuesday this week, the police told the 40 law enforcers to appear for a disciplinary hearing at area 30 on Wednesday, accusing them of absconding work.

This forced the officers to obtain an injunction to suspend the disciplinary hearing.

Despite the injunction, the Malawi Police Service (MPS) led by the Inspector General Rodney Jose went on interdicting the 40 law enforcers on allegations that they did not report for duties.

But government has this morning intervened on the matter by obtaining at injunction hurting the interdiction.
