Kumbatira booted out as MACRA boss

President Peter Mutharika has booted out Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) Director General Andrew Kumbatira.

Kumbatira: I am at home

Kumbatira: I am at home

According to Malawi NewsNow, Kumbatira has been redeployed to Malawi Postal Corporation as Post Master General.

Kumbatira previously held the position of Post Master General before he was posted to MACRA.

According to the report, the current Post Master General, Godfrey Itaye will move to become Director General at MACRA.

But in an interview with Capital Radio on Wednesday, Kumbatira said he was not aware of the move.

“I don’t know where these reports are coming from,” said Kumbatira.

Asked if he was still boss at Macra, Kumbatira told Capital Radio: “I am at home.”

Minister of Information, Kondwani Nankhumwa could not confirm the move.

“We don’t have such an issue at the table,” Nankhumwa told the radio.

He said the matter is “speculation until the official letter comes on the table.”

Sources at Macra told Nyasa Times that Kumbatira has bid farewell to them, saying he is heading back to MPC.

    I agree that “re-deployed” should be the title and not booted; choice of words there Nyasatimes!!! Anyway – To everything there is time. China Chili chonse chimachitila ubwino kwa ana ake aMulungu.! Tidzazindikira bwino patsogolo ndithu. We just hope that the politics being played here will not end up very badly for those that are playing it. For AK – You are better of working at a place where you are loved and appreciated than being at a place where there is too much politics and too many bosses. All the best, – your MPC family is waiting for you.!!

  11. cintuli says:

    KODI A National Audit mulipo? Kapena nanu mwanya bazi pakamwa. ACB you are sleeping Immediately come to MPC and investigate Godfrey Itaye on the following areas
    ( a) Recruitment- Walemba mtundu wa kwao oposa 50 opanda kulembera ntchito. Anthu onse akale amawatenga ngati animals komanso number ya ma workers yachuluka zedi within 10 months of his stay here and check labour turnover is very high as compared to other organisations.
    (b)Dubious procurement contracts to himself and friends . 10 months samalandira Salary amadyera momwemo
    (c) Every week he was drawing allowances to Lilongwe , small cashgate called MPC cashgate
    (d) wachotsa anthu woposa 50 ndicholinga choti aikepo abale ake ndi amtundu wake
    (e)Anapita ku Switzerland ku msonkhano pomwe post office ikulephera kulipira ma suppliers komanso ma salary a ma workers.
    (g) He disabled workers Union by posting secretary general to Pholombe and all his critics to South , centre and north.
    If indeed we have the working ACB in Malawi you will get a lot from MPC and re assignment this man to MACRA is another serious mistake.

  14. Chemusa says:

    Prof Billikon, have you checked the headline. Also know that in Journalism you verify facts. You do not just write or lift a story just because other publication or media houses have written it. You check facts.

    There is no story here. Kumbatira has gone back to MPC. What is so special about this? what is booting out mean?

  15. Lord Denning Chatsika says:

    When employees, especially those who normally comment on fb like you as a manager, you are probably not a good one to shareholders. Food for thought.

  25. Viva says:

    Either not mlakho enough or not giving money to alakho.. The only two reasons one is booted out in this country.. I think God loves you Andrew, you have just been spared unnecessary headaches

  26. Happy Eduardo says:

    It appears Kumbatira is a man of the people. He should be a real inspirational leader. Keep it up Andrew!

  27. Adona says:

    Andrew

    I have red all the comments and have found none faulting you. This is rare on social media. Keep it up, and take this positively. Ntchito za Boma izi. Suffice to know kuti ndi zakutha. Godfrey good luck at MACRA. No kind comment for you. Time to reflect as you go for a higher position than where you left, brother. God Bless You All.

  28. Kumbatira says:

    kumbatira you are most welcome at MPC.Itaye go to hero please

  29. nicks says:

    Godfrey ndi Mfiti yodya anthu walemba abale wake opanda ma interview we have the names please a ACB fufuzani za recruitment ku Post Office. Komanso Post office is the home of Seventh Day Adventist over 80% are coming from his church. Kodi A boma kulibe anthu a mipingo ina mmalawi muno? A president think about it and change this immediately

  30. nicks says:

    Wind of change, mr Itaye ukapume munthu wankhaza ngati chumba/mbome. Waba zambiri kupost office. Ndipo uyamike we were about to strike you from entering MPC gates. You are very useless kaya ukunyandira Chilimayo VP ukamuuze kuti ndalephera ku post office. A president mwalakwitsa kumupatsa kumacra amafunika apite koweta ngombe ku nsanje that’s where he belongs. Koma amzathu ku MACRA please do not allow this animal into ur company he is egocentric creature. In short he is a failure.

    Very good Andy we missed you at MPC as amn of Vission osakhala pumbwa analikoyo inayamba kufatu MPC go man go and fight back the lost glory Bravo Andrew Kumbatira

  35. Crispin Bwangala says:

    It can only mean the Itaye guy is a much purer Lomwe than the Kumbatira boy. As for Bisika, his major problem is his open zip policy. Screwing even dirty village girls, primary school dropouts at that…Just check his facebook account and see the multitude of teenage, breastsucking girl toddlers who are his “friends”

  36. dungulinya says:

    Redeployed should be the correct story heading. Not booted out.

  37. Ron & nevr says:

    Mpc inangwa cz of itayi xo welcme back kumbatira

  38. Andy says:

    Nyasa Times dont cause confusion. If you dont have information please ask your writers to do an analysis of some of the work the govt is doing to generate information for publication. It is not fair to be hounding govt officers with removals and creating unneccessary tension around in an effort to create news for your publications. This is unethical practices not expected from the profession thats known as the ” 4th branch of government”

    Why do we excell in wishing others bad luck?

    1. Prof AP Billikoni says:

      Andy dont blame Nyasa Times, they have indicated they are quoting other reports and at least they have balanced

    Its okay my friend it is not like you will have no job. You and your family will do just fine Andrew. My greeting to your sweetheart, Mrs Mercy Kumbatira

  43. Dr Mrs Ben Phiri Mutharika says:

    Godfrey Itaye nde ndiwa nkhanza eissh. Wapangitsa ndi Kondwani Nankhumwa coz of LACELL license. Very idiotic politics. Mukanthidwa nonse one by one until you all rest with the author of nepotism and tribalism che Bingu

  44. Alufeyo says:

    Actually bearing in mind the role Bisika played in tighing the elections he should made Minister of Information and Director General of MACRA.

  45. He is fired because he refused to put tax on SMSz

  46. Mzungu wa Nzeru says:

    Good move he is the guy who gave life MPC which now crying SOS

  47. namatikitiki says:

    Why not just promote Bisika as Director General?
