Nepotism – a practice of employing relatives or friends in one’s organisation even if outsider were better qualified. That’s the sedition which I got. So I have got one question, if the CEO has a relative with Masters degree & all other people who have applied for the job have got Bachelors degrees, is employing the relative who is highly qualified considered nepotism?????

If it’s true that he is related to Peter then it’s up to you guys The Public Appointments Committee to shoot this appointment down. Malawi is for every Malawian, there are a lot of capable people out there whether they’re from Nsanje, Chitipa or anywhere it doesn’t matter.

Everything that you journalists post for the nation to read is now just always negative. Instead of just posting the development which is there, you want to politicise every move government has done. What is your problem?

Whether related to the president or not the big question should be can he manage the high profile mission. For me this man in question has laboured his way up not where he comes from or who he is related to? There are a lot of competent people I know from Thyolo should they not be considered on grounds of qualification and experience.

To those who are against Salama’s appointment: Please list the facts, as they relate to the job, which make this man unqualified. Not just generalities.
And remember, his home base or origin is irrelevant here. Just facts baasi.
