Heads of Parliamentary Secretariat Divisions, Sections and Units were engaged in a three-day training in Salima for a change capable leadership training.

The meeting was aimed at enhancing service delivery at the legislative institution.

Professor Blessings Chinsinga, director at the Centre for Social Research under the University of Malawi and Dr Margaret Sikwese, managing partner for Novo Habitus Consulting Limited facilitated the training.

Henry Njolomole, Deputy Clerk of Parliament responsible for Parliamentary Service told the participants at the meeting to reflect on possible areas of change for the institution to be relevant to the dynamic world.

Njolomole in his opening remarks said: “I am sure that you will agree with me that we are all living in a world of changes and that the Parliament of Malawi needs to adapt to those changes if it is to remain relevant to the general public.”

“The project aims to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the Parliament of Malawi.”
