The High Coutrt in Lilongwe yesterday adjourned the case in which former Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) chief executive officer Ralph Kamoto is challenging his dismissal over allegations of abuse of office.
Kamoto was fired in February this year alongside director of finance Elias Hausi in relation to the authority’s diversion of K2.9 billion from the Price Stabilisation Fund (PSF) for the purchase of maize for the State produce trader Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc).
In an interview after the adjournment by presiding High Court judge Charles Mkandawire, lawyer representing Mera, Gabriel Chembezi, said the matter was adjourned because Kamoto’s lawyer, George Mwale, was yet to provide an affidavit to vacate an injunction filed earlier against his dismissal.
He said Kamoto through his lawyer filed an application for an injunction that he should not be dismissed.
Mwale said he was not ready to comment since the matter was in court.
On March 16 this year, Kamoto made an application of the injunction which stopped Mera from dismissing him.
