HC Deb 21 April 1959 vol 604 c29W
77. Mrs. Castle

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why Miss Grace Kahumbe has been dismissed from her position as an education officer in the Government service in Nyasaland.

Mr. J. Amery

Miss Kahumbe has not been dismissed. In accordance with Colonial Regulations her salary was withheld from the date of her conviction pending consideration of her case by the Governor. Her conviction, however, has now been set aside, all salary withheld has been fully restored and she continues to hold her post of woman education officer without any break of service.
