The cat has been let out of the bag….The order to get Louisa Angela Kabwila out of the Foreign Affairs Ministry came from George Chaponda.
Our sources have confided that Chaponda gave out the short but not to be defied instruction like this: “Am going out of the country and I don’t want to see this girl in this ministry upon my return.”
Louisa Angela who is daughter of Salima West MP Jessie Kabwila and Malawi Congress Party Spokesperson could not survive in such a circumstance as someone doing the contrary would instead face the chop.
And nobody wanted to die for her even if the whole ministry knows that the girl is innocent but it is the voice of her mother, as an MP that has costed her the internship.
Kabwila the MP has been trying to reason for good governance and respect for human rights and provision of essential services to all Malawians but that has put her in crossing fire with the DPP where Chaponda has a voice respected by overzealous party followers.
His decision in cancelling the MP’s daughter internship in the Department of international cooperation has not been condemned by either the party or the executive as both feels it is one way of punishing the Kabwila family and silencing others in protesting against the ills of the DPP government.
True to Chaponda’s word, Secretary of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Brian Ng’oma, wrote the “girl” that all is over in as far as her internship is concerned. The communication is contained in a letter dated 2nd March 2016 ref. No. EA/1/3/45.
The letter reads in part: “I regret to inform you that due to limited office space in some of our department where you were also supposed to be attached, we have decided to terminate your internship”.
The letter states that Louisa who is in her 20s last day of internet ship was March 4 2016.
Dr Jessie Kabwila, has only said: “I just wish they stuck to me, not my child otherwise they have crossed a line.
“Just because she is my daughter then that’s a crime. That should not be but surely this battle has now been elevated to another level and I do not think I will stop stating the truth that there is hunger and that DPP is failing.”
