    Chikaonda has indeed overstayed. You cannot have a CEO for 10 years. Maximum shud be 6 years. Even in UK. A CEO can only serve for 6 years max . This is good for corporate governance. PCL has lost a lot under Chikaonda. Matama basis ngati zeni-zeni

  9. zandile says:

    We want jobs to be adverised, not appointments.

    There is no way PCL can move forward with new directions and new ideas as long as they have this life CEO. There is so much that this company can do being the biggest conglomerate in the country, but its decisions and directions have become so boringly monotonous.
    Allow new face come in with new and fresh ideas and allow bamboo chikaonda to move on. I have nothing against Professor Matthew Chikaonda, I am sure there are things he has done to help PCL`s progress, but comes a time when change at the top is absolutely essential, and for PCL , that times was 5-10 years ago.

    Congratulation my mentor

  12. The issue here is not about Prof Chikaonda. NO. Thus madness of Some few Malawians. Even if it means chikaonda fired or moved from this position, you cannot even deputise the one who might be appointed. Trade carefully. If you have nothing to comment, you can just read what other sensible Malawians have written.

  13. Mute Gama says:

    It seems each passing year Prof Chikaonda gets younger. Therefore he shall not retire until the current board of PCL goes too.

    One of the first things Dr Gombachika should sort out is the mess created on MTL internet products by the new billing system. Before 10 December 2014, MTL internet on LibertyNET, EV-DO dongle, EV DO wi-fi router, and Wi-Max was very reliable. Then some idiot in MTL IT decided to hurriedly change the billing system – and everything went belly-up. Revenue from MTL internet products may drastically go down as the result of this rash decision.

    As a telecommunications guru, Harry may assist his Mbayani trained IT officers to bring the system back to its original reliability…

    Kodi Matthews Chikaonda the destroyer of Press Corporation companies, is he life Chief Executive? Madala amenewa nyanga ndithu

  17. chimangafisi dollar says:

    Congrats Mr . Gombachika

  18. Chikaonda has destroyed the PLC Conglomerate due to his untold incompetence, period!

    Is the name Harry Gomba Nyika or I don’t see properly?
