Cabinet reshuffle looms in Malawi: APM wants to appoint 2nd VP

Anxiety has gripped government official and ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) over a looming cabinet reshuffle amid revelations that United Democratic Front (UDF) and some opposition lawmakers have been pencilled in the proposed changes and that the President may appoint a second vice president.

President Mutharika and Minister Atupele: Agenda for close working relation

President Mutharika and Minister Atupele: Agenda for close working relation

President Peter Mutharika has the prerogative of reshuffling his cabinet and no government official said cannot comment on behalf of the appointing authority.

State House sources say Mutharika wants the position of second vice president be re-introduced, with the holder enjoying equal privileges and other conditions as the incumbent state vice president, Saulos Chilima.

There has been fevered speculation on social media that Minister of Energy Atupele Muluzi is preferred to be named Second Vice President and that three of UDF members will make into cabinet.

UDF recently requested the Speaker to relocate its 14 MPs to government benches to reflect the governing pact of the two parties and the Attorney General (AG) Kalekeni Kaphale has advised Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya that UDF can join DPP on government benches .

The impeccable sources confided in Nyasa Times that some of the ministers set to be dropped include Minister of Information Kondwani Nankhumwa, minister of Labour Henry Mussa and Minister of Home Affairs Paul Chibingu.

Others sources indicated that, Jappie Mhango, Grace Obama Chiumia, Allan Chembekeza  are likely to dropped .

But the miniters  were said to be canvassing to be reappointed.

Also being courted is Malawi Parliament’s Budget and Finance Committee chairperson Alekeni Wodala Menyani   of Malawi Congress Party and People’s Party  Mzomera Ngwira and Harry Mkandawires. It is not yet known if they will hired in cabinet.

There is also tension in DPP over the reintroduction of second vice president post and the party rank and file is opposing to the move.

The only holder of the second vice president position was the late Chakufwa Chihana, the then leader of the Alliance for Democracy (Aford). The republican constitution was amended during the second term of the former Head of State Bakili Muluzi to create the position of second vice president and Chihana was appointed on the premise of enhancing national unity.

But the reintroduction of second vice president will defeat the essence of austerity in the lean cabinet, observers noted.

The government is desperate for donor funding to turn around the economy and there has been a so-called “new friends” foreign policy to look at East and other countries such as Russia and North Korea.

Of late there has been a growing list of the President’s aides forced out of State House.

President Mutharika’s aide-de-camp (ADC) Lieutenant Colonel Fostino Gunda-Phiri was on Monday removed from his position joining presidential press secretary Frederick Ndala, presidential secretary Hilda Chapola, personal assistant to the First Lady, Philomena Kasambwe, deputy guard commander a Mr. Chikhungu and second deputy guard commander a Mr. Kabambe out of State House.

The President’s guard commander Duncan Mwapasa is also out of State House after being appointed as Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Malawi Police Service.

    Since 1994,Muluzi introduced politics of deception.When Bingu was performing when he came to power, Muluzi was not comfortable.What APM wants to do is reward the Muluzis for selecting his brother to become President.It is payback time.

    As a country, fellow Malawians know this:MALAWI will never go ahead as long as any Mutharika/Muluzi comes to power at any time.The time for recycled politicians is over.Next election, lets select a decent, honest person who has the country at heart and is visionary.Even the bible states that where there is no vision,people perish.I wil ask my moslem brothers to find the equivalent in the Quran.We have a clueless government,with no direction, no vision,no thinking.The only way we can go is downhill.Mark my words.Ndangodutsamo

  16. Mr. B says:

    I would like to differ with that person whose trying to undermine Hon. Henry Mussa. Anyway it is his/her right to express his/her opinion however Hon. Mussa is a DPP strongman. He has maintained his loyalty to the party during very difficulty times and likes of Hon. Bright Msaka, Hon. Patricia Kaliati and not forgetting Hon. Chaponda. Hon. Mussa is very charismatic and approachable man.

  19. It’s that kind of politics which is so old and needs to be archived, not trending with modern environment. DPP is strategizing to gain milage in all regions while systematically dilapidating opposition. The youthful Muluzi can then be assured of his doom in the footsteps of late Chakufwa by letting his party die a natural death. Rethink Mr. Muluzi and your comrades for the better Malawi.

  20. Mngoni says:

    This is so pathetic news if true bwana president. Its a shame that as a country this is what we call and torelate as the order of the day!

  27. robbins. mkonda says:

    It would be very unfair to appoint a second vice president from the south. It is a known fact that the north does not have the numbers to influence the political direction of this country. However it is not wise to abuse the dominance of one region carelessly just to appease each other just because other regions cannot do anything. But people if hardpressed always find away to fight the injustice visited on them by other people. Already there are genuine complaints of the imbalances in the appointment of ministers and many other top officials to which no plausible explanation has been offered. This country is the poorest in the the world even if the government wishes things were different. One contributing factor has been poor and unvionary leaders who have nothing new to offer to move the cointry forwad. It is appalling to see that those who parade themselves as educated people cannot distinguish themselves from the so called uneducated folks. It is very frustrating to note that the same people people or calibre of people who continue to manipulate all of us and drug this into the mud while we are helplessly wathing. Just look at some of the presidential aids that are making decisions for us. This happens only in the poorest country like ours. What do you expect from a president who is surrounded by a forest of confused advisors.

    The poorest country on and scum of all scums on earth needs a second VP? what a joke this president has no idea what he is doing. I hope the donors are watching and please do not support this clueless stupid president. Malawians do not need corrupt people as leaders. Lets start a revolution and get rid of these incompetent leaders. where is he going to get the resources to pay his blotted useless cabinet? It is sad to see where APM puts his priorities in this country.

  31. Mulopwana says:

    I strongly oppose this ldeas of creating a possition of 2nd VP and also to hire these bwenu-bwenu into government. My president don’t do this for the sake of our party. We have capable mambers in our Dpp that can deliever if they are hired as cabinet ministers. Don’t forget that these opposition members were mockering and insulting u day and night. Don’t hire them,let them rot. Talimbana nawo tokha kuti chipani chathu chilowenso mboma. Let the Dpp members enjoy their sweat yomwe anavutikila kuti inu mukhale president. Don’t forget mr president kuti zinthu zikativuta amatithawa anthu amenewa nkuyambanso kutinyoza. Remember wakusina khutu ndi mnasi. Long live Dpp,long live Malawi government and long live Mutharika.

    Misplaced priorities. This country does not need a second VP. It needs another president. APM should resign as he has failed Malawians. No need to continue wasting our resources. Please Mr president do the honorable thing and resign. You have proved yourself that you are clueless and inept. You may be a professor on books but when it comes to common sense you are very inept. You continue to rape our treasury due to your greed. What our country needs are people who will resuscitate the economy not roaming around and making our expenditures more than necessary.

    what is happening?

  40. Zopusa says:

    If this is true then Malawi is very unfortunate country. We were expecting the president to maintain the lean Cabinet in an effort to restore the economy of the country. We don’t need the office of the Second Vice Presidency. For what in a small country like Malawi? Pangani zimenezo ife we are watching.

  41. Mlauzi says:

    This is nonsensical. At a time when we are anchoring the bottom as the poorest country in the world why should you create additional expenditure through a redundant office that can best be described as ceremonial? What does a second vice president do in a fragile economy like ours, apart from contributing to a bloated cabinet and over expenditure? What value will this extravagance add in an ailing economy. Was this office budgeted for???????????????

  42. Mzozodo says:

    As a DPP Mp, I’m happy to hear about the possible dropping of Henry Mussa from the cabinet . Akulu amenewa amazifila too much up to the point of planning to replace APM in 2019 .

    From appeasement to another wave of appeasement.

    Go ahead sir, appoint the 2nd VP. At least we will be assured that next yesar 2016, you will appoint a 3rd and 4th VP. Whether they are going to be from the south, center or north. It’s your choice, Mr. Pilizidenti.

    A Pulizidenti, what you’re doing is what is in the reform program, trust me.

    DPP & UDF are in majority therefore they should rule this country.

    But fear not Mr Chilima. Stand still and know there is God. God will fight ur battles and will make a way. God will lay the table for u in the midst of the enermies. Keep ur trust in God only. Fight with ur knees. Just surrender it all to God.
    Dr Bakili Muluzi can only suggest but if God is not for it it will not mount to anything.

    May God guide and protect Malawi.

  57. Yokwiya says:

    We dont even need the first vice president. How did Muluzi manage without his deputy? How did Bingu manage without a deputy? Even Kamuzu had no deputy. This position was imposed on us by the framers of the constitution. Its is a drain on our meagre resources. Maybe its there in wait for the demise of the number 1. But personally I feel its not necessary for a small economy like Malawi. Otherwise this move, if it is to materialize, is the biggest gaff APM is going to make. It is bad for democracy and the world is watching. Tiyeni nazo!!!

  74. ujeni says:

    Why the poorest country on earth, one of the smallest countries on earth should have 2 vice presidents, 20 presidential advisers, 40 cabinet ministers when bigger countries like USA, Russia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique have 1 vice President, fewer ministers and advisers.

If prerogative is abused, how do we ensure accountability? I smell a rat. Someone seems to be looking to 2019 and moving chess pieces 4 years in advance of the “go time”.

    Mr journalist should know that the Malawi constitution provides for the office of the second vice president. Why should Peter Muntharika reintroduce it, is Muntharika a constitution. The President swore to safeguard the law of the land, whatever appoint he can make in this the constitution empowers him, wheather political appointment, appeasement appointment, economical appoint, you name it. Malawi should not suffer “ungovernance” just because donors wants their headless economic directives and dictations, after all we are funding activities of government expenditures on our own. Malawi journalism is sometimes very dull and unpatriotic and hypocritical. LOOK at National Aids Commission, very soon people will jobs just because some scribes thought painting it an embezzler to the donors will make Peter Mutharika suffer, but who will be suffering now, ordinary people because of uncensorship journalism. The president of NAMISA Thom Khanje must organise some workshops on good and patriotic journalism. After all if Atupele will be a second VP is he not a Malawian? STOP POOR JOURNALISM and NEWS ANALYSIS

    Instead you should focus your energies on formulating and implementing the strategies to enhance the declining economy. You should be busy specifying the country’s Objectives, developing policies and plans to achieve economic growth and development. you should encapsulate various functional state business enterprises with concrete overall direction. you should have far stretching ideas and initiate meaningful and profitable government enterprises’ activities. Think of proper allocation and utilization of Government resources consistently. Establish productive Agricultural projects for example as Agriculture is the backbone of our economy. In that way you are also setting and example to the entire nation to follow suit – be a model to watch – More on investment spending than consumption spending- Activities that will bear fruit for ordinary citizens in the future. Laying concrete a foundation for the Nation.

    The appointment of Atupele to the pposition. Of Vp is a complete wiping out of the former ruling party UDF. The UDF party should play its card carefully other wise will follow Afford part because its poor strategies.

    Sorry Saulosi thats the end of you. Atupele, being a bit more mature in conduct and presentation than Saulosi, will grab the limelight. Timanena ife kuti kuyendetsa boma ndi kugulitsa airtime ndizosiyana!

    2nd vice president 4 what? Sum1 is taking this country as a personal estate where anything can b done without consultations. Dont take citizens 4 granted if this country needs a 2nd vice president we must go 4 a referendum and we see frm there. Can sumbody join me in saying no no no. Its not the will of the pipo 4 2nd vice president, dont impose on us what we dont want. We voted 4 u and u betray us. Its not part of the policy of what we want. Get back 2 the basics and lets build the country.

  111. Signs of the times, ladies and gentlemen; Bakili Muluzi is destroying our country, all these are results of evil MOU endorsed by Peter Mutharika to pave way for this evil islamic Atupele. Mr Saulosi Chilima must be very careful, anything might happen to your precious life, the only solution is to really lean on God becuse this whole mafia plan will one day self destruct this islamic Muluzi empire. We are watching and God through mighty Jesus is watching too. God is in control.

    Whoever got and followed Bakili Muluzi advice does not last. You don’t follow a failure’s advice. APM must be careful here. This approach will affect this nation negatively. Mark my word, Political Engineer at work but we hv so many examples around including the economic landscape’s background. Muluzi must give us a break we want to develop as a nation.

  125. Parallel Market says:

    Because the president comes from the south, his deputy comes from the centre therefore if a 2nd vice president is to be appointed he must be one from the northern region, otherwise do not try to bring back this 2nd VP thing we hurt it.

  126. Federal government needed. There is no better solution than this.

  131. Boko Good says:

    This is a waste of resources. What for? Are we in a crisis such that we need a second vice president? Is it just for appeasement? This is foolishness and stupidity at its best. Instead of concentrating on development to bring the nation to another level we are busy creating useless positions that will make Malawi even poorer.Mr President please stop this madness. Be like your late brother whose tangible works of his hands were seen eg Chitipa Road, The new Lilongwe Hotel, Zambezi Waterway, Ndata University etc

  132. Parallel Market says:

    If APM wants to bring back 2nd VP nonsense, then that person should be from the north not from the south otherwise that will spark controversies in our beautiful republic.

    I will be very sad if these so called Mzomera and Mkandawire be hired into cabinet.Does it mean their unnecessary noise on federation and secession has awarded them??? This is bullshit and dont let us down with this barbaric thinking.How come to drop Mussa the great weapon in DPP? Think twice. I would love may be Khumbo Kachale because he joined us before elections not others.For Atupele to be second vice president not so bad.Once again dont disappoint us by hiring Harry Mkandawire and Mzomera Ngwira.

    Alekeni menyani is not chairman of budget and finance . Get it right. The chairman is Rhino Chiphiko M C P. Menyani if he joins DPP government he knows that is the end of his political career. MCP doesn’t give a mercy when it comes to election. No one will suffocate that party. Ask muluzi he knows that
