The new MEC Chairperson is Justice of Appeal, Jane Mayemu Ansah, SC, and the appointment is effective from October 14, according to a statement signed by Chief Secretary to the Malawi Government, George Mkondiwa, dated Oct. 14, 2016.

Ansah once served as Malawi’s Attorney General during President Bingu Mutharika’s reign and she is a known figure in the justice spectrum.

Her predecessor, Mbendera, died after he collapsed in a meeting in Malawi capital, Lilongwe, on August 18 and he was pronounced dead upon arrival at a nearest clinic within the city.

The newly appointed Chief becomes a second woman to head the electoral body after Justice Anastanzia Msosa who was succeeded by Mbendera. Enditem
