2 Mr. Maxwell C. Tambala,  trading as Tambala Civil Contractors, P.O. Box 297, Lilongwe Stricken off the register

Mr. Allan Magombo ,trading as Downstairs Construction, was found guilty by the courts of law for theft and money laundering contrary to the laws of Malawi; while Mr. Maxwell C. Tambala, trading as Tambala Civil Contractors, was found guilty of professional misconduct after going through a disciplinary process for falsiying his qualifications during a bidding process. Both acts by Mr Allan Magombo and Mr. Maxwell C. Tambala are contrary to the Code of Ethics for Contractors in the Construction Industry and are therefore subject to a discliplinary action.


Mr. Allan Magombo of Downstairs Construction and Mr Maxwell C.  Tambala of Tambala Civil Contractors are therefore not allowed to conduct business in the construction industry in Malawi.

The National Construction Industry Council is hereby advising all stakeholders to take note of this development and ensure that they do not hire Downstairs Construction and Tambala Civil Contractors for construction services as doing so will be in contravention of the provisions of the NCI Act.

The NCIC is further advising all stakeholders to ensure that they verify with the Council on the registration status of firms prior to awarding contracts.

At NCIC, we are dedicated to serving with honesty, high professional standards and good ethical conduct”
