(African Stand) — The government of Malawi is still contemplating whether to give a dismissal letter to the deposed Malawi Defence Force (MDF) army Commander, Peter Namanthanga.

However, Minister of Information Gospel Kazako said, the letter of the dismissal will not affect the set up at MDF.

This comes after some security analysts contend that if the government does not produce the letter to Namanthanga it means MDF has two Generals, simultaneously.

When responding to a question about Namathanga whereabouts from one of the local Radio Stations, Kazako simply said Namanthanga is in Malawi.

Namathanga was Army’s General Commander during the DPP era who took over from Nundwe in a controversial move that most analysts raise an eyebrow on.

During a press briefing announcing the return of the army commander, Vincent Nundwe state president Lazarus Chakwera said he will engage the security council to decide on the matter.

Vincent Nundwe was once dismissed by former President Peter Mutharika and replaced him with Peter Mathamanga.

According to the former leader of Malawi, Vincent Nundwe was fired for allowing men in uniform to protect demonstrators who were protesting against the results of the 2019 Presidential elections in which Peter Mutharika declared a winner.
