BLANTYRE (MaraPost)—The recent firing of the Chief Executive Officer of the National Food Reserve Agency (NFRA), Nansinuku Saukira is a serious error of the current President Joyce Banda and raises more serious concerns on the independence of Statutory Corporations, Malawi Watch has said.
President Banda fired Saukira despite being advised to recall him from suspension after the disciplinary committee cleared him of charges over 30,000 metric tones of maize which got rotten in the strategic grain silos on his watch.

Blantyre, Malawi, Dec. 3 (MaraviPost) _ The European Union (EU) delegation in Lilongwe and the Malawi mission to the EU in Brussels have denied reports that President Joyce Banda cancelled her trip to Brussels last week because she was barred from entering the EU following financial scandals currently rocking her government.
Banda was supposed to fly from Abu Dhabi and Kuwait straight to Brussels to attend the European Development Days’ activities on Tuesday and Wednesday last week. But State House Press Secretary Steven Nhlane announced that the President would not go to Brussels because the trip was not fully-funded.
