Some members of staff at Thyolo agriculture office have petitioned the District Council and Blantyre Agriculture Development Division (BLADD) demanding the transfer of Chief Agriculture Officer, Mirriam Ndlovu.
In the letter, the staff which include, the Agriculture Extension Development Coordinators (AEDC) are accusing Ndlovu of lacking transparency and accountability in managing Other Recurrent Transactions (ORT), ASWAP and AIP resources, including lacking of division of labour and practices favortism.
They have further indicated that they are not comfortable to work with Ndlovu for allegedly using abusive language, issuing threats and intimidations to the staff on petty issues.
However, Ndlovu claimed she was yet to see the content of the letter.
"I cannot comment because I am yet to see the letter," she said.
Meanwhile, Blantyre ADD programs manager, Patricia Mayuni said the district council was better placed to speak on the way forward.
Thyolo district council spokesperson, Brenda Nkosi was yet to comment on the letter, but Zodiak Online has established that Thyolo District Commissioner, Rosemary Nawasha has called for a meeting with the staff to discuss the issues this Wednesday.
