Dausi says Malawi VP Chilima relieved of his public service reforms work

Minister of Information and Communications Technologies Nicholas Dausi has disclosed that the Public Service Reform Commission  (PSRC) functions have reverted  to the Office of President and Cabinet and that Vice President Saulos Chilima and his team are now out of it.

Mutharika and reforms commission: Dausi says their mandate jas expired, duties revert to OPC

Dausi, who is government spokesman, said the mandate for Chilima’s commission expired on December 31, 2016.

“The mandate for Chilima and his Public Service Reform Commission  came to an end on December 31, 2016. It finished,” said Dausi.

“Public Service Reform Commission had a life span of one year and now it has expired,” added Dausi.

He said all activities of reforms will now be under  the Chief Secretary to government, Lloyd Muhara.

President Peter Mutharika launched the new public reforms programme on February 11 2015.

Mutharika appointed Chilima to head the ambitious programme, with several changes already under implementation and  others in advanced stages of discussions.

Chilima   provided strategic leadership in the implementation of the reforms.

Further, to have evidence-based decisions on plans and priorities, some members of the commission had a benchmarking study tour to Kenya, Singapore and the United Kingdom to learn best practices, which Malawi can effectively adapt to the local environment.

The Vice-President’s press officer Pilirani Phiri said he could not comment on matter as Dausi is the government official spokesman.

I Vehemently uphold Chilima’s courage and his patriotic stance to challenge the corrupt and tribalistic President Muthalika.This reminds me of 9th September,1964,when rogue Hastings Banda,fired six very intelligent Ministers Viz: Willy Chokani,Augustin Bwanausi,Masauko Chipembere,Kanyama Chiume,Orton Chirwa,Yatuta Chisiza and Rose Chiwambo for criticising him the way he ruled the nation soon after independence.The crucial reasons why the Ministers raised against the dictator were: Forthwith Africanization of civil service,hospital fees,dictatorship,fraternisation with imperialists and colonialists of Rhodesia,South Africa,Mozambique,S.W.Africa (Namibia) and Guinea Bissau Islands etc.Soon after that,Banda authorised MYP under Aleke Banda and Gwanda Chakuamba to beatup and kill those who supported the ex-Ministers.For… Read more »

Malawi is a sick country, led by a sick president with sick ministers and shortsighted politicians. Chilima will become President before 2019 as he is probably the only solution God has to prevent the country from going to the dogs. Chilima will then kick the buts of all the bad guys in DPP and form a party at that time to mark the formal end of DPP (the party can not survive without the Munthalikas. Watch this space!

God loves Malawi and He alone will give us best things at the best time. AMalawi amzanga, tiyeni tipitirize kupemphera dzolimba, nkhondoyi siyathu ndiya Yehova. I still believe that with good leaders, our systems can change and our country can develop, after all it it blessed with a lot of natural resources.
Wina wake akubwera amene adzatidabwitsa tonse ndipo sitizakhulupirira kuti ndi Malawi yemwe uja. ooh yes I believe.


Achilima zofuna dala izi.Munawathandiza kubera chisankho lero ndi amenewo akuvulani thalauza pagulu.Simunati zikubwera zambiri mukomoka ndi ma BP ndipo muyamba chanu chipani cha anthu anayi.Ndinu kapolo kuposa a malawi omwe munawaberawo.zimatero kuno ndi ku malawi.This is DI PHWIPHWIIIIIIII. Mukhaula madala bola ku airtel konkuja dyera.ife tinazolowera umphawi pitani kalimeni kachewere kwanu uko


Bilimankhwe ndiwedi bilimankhwe. Mutu sukoka. Would one be talking about Atupele leading this country now? We want progress please and Atupele wachepera kaba by far. Would even even be worse than agogo akungogona my state house panopa


Mwapalamula chitedza. Chikuyabwani a DPP. Kuchotsa tayala la bwino mkuyika lakutha.


In all likelihood, Chilima heard this news through the media. Not even a phone call from the president.
But then, again, what was on his mind when he made that odd statement at the church?
Perhaps he was misunderstood or quoted out of context?


Let us wait and see. Definitely water and oil do not mix neither light and darkness going together.

There is no reform there. They were just having nice time in overseas with big allowances. That’s how they make money when you work in government. Reform could be blessed by the parliament composition of all parties so that no political party will change it. Just be used with Malawian politicians
