LILONGWE—The government has decided not to renew the contract for the Chief Immigration Officer Elvis Thodzi which was due to expire next month.
“I have been informed that Government will not be renewing his contract which expires in August 2012. He has served his new contract a total of 3 years and after which he will be no longer in service,” Home Affairs Minister Uladi Muss confirmed Monday following reports on local radio stations that Thodi had beed sacked.
Mussa couldn’t elaborate on the reason that led to the decision.
While in office, immigration introduced a computer-managed passport system aimed at cutting short the time people have to wait to get a passport.
It was also during his time in office that questions were raised regarding acquisition of diplomatic passports by some individuals who didn’t represent the Malawi government.
