Court reinstates Ackim Mwanza as Northern Region Governor, Mzomera Ngwira out



The High Court of Malawi has reinstated the unceremoniously deposed Regional Governor for the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to his position.

This effectively renders Christopher Mzomera Ngwira, who was convicted of theft of the Constituency Development Fund when he was an MP and only set free on medical grounds, jobless in the party.

Malawians have since blamed party leader Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika of being behind the confusion that is reigning high in the erstwhile governing party.
