Brussels 'Recalls' Head of EU Delegation to Malawi

Sandra Paesen EU-Ambassador Sandra Paesen EU-Ambassador

European Union head of delegation to Malawi, Sandra Paesen, has been given a week to return to Brussels, Belgium, one year after she flew in to take up the post.

The development is coming only weeks after the Malawi government wrote the EU complaining that Paesen had taken part in a street protest against alleged rape of women by police at Msundwe in the capital, Lilongwe.

The government of Malawi described the incident as evidence of meddling in local politics as the genesis of the Msundwe fracas is linked to disputed May 2019 elections.

Paesen was only a year and a half in office. She presented her diplomatic letters to President  Peter Mutharika mid October.

Before coming to Malawi, Paesen headed the political, press and information department at the EU Delegation office in Uganda.

Officials were locked up at the EU delegation in Lilongwe when we went to bed.

However, civil society organisations have reacted angrily to the development saying this was evidence of impunity and intolerance to descent by the Malawi government.
