Fired Admarc regional manager for the South Isaac Felix Kazanga has waited for 13 years to get the Ombudsmanâ€™s determination after he was fired from his job in 1999.
Kazanga was firedÂ after being suspected of being an opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP)Â supporter during the UDF rule.
The determination, which asks Admarc to reinstate Kazanga to his position, exposes how complainants suffer to get assistance at the Ombudsmanâ€™s office due to delays to conclude their cases.
“The matter has caused a lot of anxiety and suffering to me during this period. This was a political case because I was accused of being a sympathiser of MCP. I feel relieved though I have waited for 13 years for the case to be concluded,” said Kazanga in an interview on Friday.
The determination by Ombudsman Tujilane Chizumila says Kazanga, who worked for Admarc for 21 years, was not heard before he was fired; add that reasons for his dismissal only required disciplinary action within the company.
Chizumila has given Admarc three months to implement her determination.
