According to the information in possession of Malawi Independent,Dr. Mtengamo despite being relieved of his duties as Chief Commissioner of Prisons continues to be perfoming his duties as if he is the one at the helm of Malawi Prisons.
As that is not enough, Mtengamo is on record to be issuing instructions to officers at Zomba Central Prison on things which were to be communicated by the new Commisioner of Prisons and yesterday ,he was giving public lecture to prison officers at Chichiri maximum prison.
It is on record that Mtengamo has vowed to continue acting as chief commissioner of prisons till he is deployed to another department else he will make life miserable for the first woman Commissioner of Prisons in the history of Malawi.
In addition, Little Mtengamo has cling to the official vehicle MPS 1 which by now was supposed to be driven by the new Prisons Chief.
