    Shasmin they were hope that the ARROGANT,POMPOUS,WOMANIZING, and CORRUPT Elvis Thodi was going to come back. That is what he was promised by DPP campaign director. Bravo APM chifukwa simuna mvetsere pressure from the Mulhakho wing to replace Elvis Thodi back to Immigration.

  4. …we observed that there is need for a person with Police experience at this department, dziko lino lagulitsidwa mokwanila ndi anthu akumeneku, iwo bola mawanja awo zikuyenda osaganizila dziko – the Malawi passport is now the easiest to obtain for a foreigner – ife tili ndi chikhulupiliro chonse kuti ameneyu athetsa umbanda unakhazikika kumeneku komanso kutseka mabowo onse momwe mumalowela anthu mdziko muno mopanda ndondomeko – ife tikufuna tigwile ntchito mdziko muno mwachifatse ndi motunukila a Malawi.

    I know Medi. He is from Nkhotakota. He is Anglican. Has a bachelor of education in humanities. Graduated as a teacher of geography. Joined the police. Did his MBA. He is a good soccer player.Ndi mzathu uyu and all that love young people should be excited that achinyamata are taking leadership jobs. I know people at immigration, some of them are not happy but I can assure you guys he has welfare of his staff at heart,,,,kafunseni ku police even the blue eagles footballers…..well where do immigration personnel train? at police colleges….I don’t see any difference….only prison has its own training school at mapanga otherwise immigtaion offocers train at police training college……we;lcome on board Masa,,,,,,it was me and ginte,,,,kikiiiiiwawa bauleni……komau muksasamle ndi ma officers tachizimayi ku bt,,,,timakonda kudya mabwana

  8. Shasmin says:

    Inu mmafuna kupite ndani kodi?? Mwailira tu tsono. Open maso.

  9. john says:

    mbuzi inu, bwanji ma jealous? Medi has an MBA qualification and he is going there as an administrator. His role is just to lead and give directions. The Gonondos will be doing the implementation. Finish. Even a civilian can head Immigration!

  10. Abiti says:

    Ine nchifukwa chake sindinaphunzire. Town planning and Businesa admin. Lol! Apite ku City Assembly uyu kikiki amangwetu shaaaa.

  11. ujeni says:

    He is not qualified for the job, how can someone with Town planning head Immigration? We have many suitable people but never considered, what a country. Put an administration guy there.

  12. Thanks but why pick someone from another dept. The entire immigration staff are not fit, fire them

  13. Ndaninso says:

    Is it true that this man was born in 1972? Is it a passport age or what?

  14. IKLC says:

    Any police or immigration related qualifications? Thats why sometimes our depts dont tick.. we put people who dont have the qualifications befitting a particular job that requires a certain degree of proficiency….and specialisation!!!

    there are universities that offer degrees in Migration, or Immigration Studies.. thats the specialisation is also required not Town planning to become a Police professional

    …and the whole Immigration has nobody to take over? It speaks volumes of the calibre of people that are hired as Immigration Officers if this development is anything to go bye.

  19. Short tempered Medi. He does not hesitate to pick up fights.

  20. Malawiana says:

    So he is a Chirunga product? In that case, we have no objection, Sir.

  22. Think Tank says:

    Mr Medi,congratulations. May i ask you to be an exceptional from those who have pushed up before you in any organisation or department? You see sir, they all had galaxies of qualifications and have been vouched as achievers,people of good character,hardworkers but in the end have proved useless.

  23. deserved as educated hardworker.
