Government has announced that it will soon replace the bosses of the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) and the National Roads Authority (NRA) following increased pressure from the general public to drop the bosses of the two entities over corruption accusations.
Civil Society Organisations gave government seven days to replace the accused corrupt bosses.
Reacting to the calls government spokesperson, Malison Ndau said that the boards of the two government bodies will meet over the matter.
“People are saying that the two individuals must be booted out of the institutions because the two are suspected to have had a hand in cashgate.
“They gave us seven days to act on the matter and soon we will meet to map a way forward to find a right person to lead the organisations,” he said.
Both Trevor Hiwa and Ishamael Chiwoko who lead the National Roads Authority and Malawi Enernegy regulatory Authority respectively are suspected to have been involved in cashgate.
