Brian has more than professional problem- He needs to go even away from the Times- He was behind the firing of so many professionals as he always feel threatened by learned people- Chikadya this is a good move, this chap Madalitso Mussa give him a good position there -he is a potential to Malawi journalism so too with Charles Mpaka anyamatawa apatseni maudindo before you lose them
