  5. Gareth Chatha says:

    Dr Benson Tembo was far much better than this lomwe speaking idiot Sumbuleta. Uzingodalira tima director takoto basi

  8. T/A says:

    Zili bwino….zamunyasa asova!!!!

  9. Here is a guy who was removed from MEC because he did not have the rightful qualifications for Communications Officer, now you are saying he is an MBC DG? This is ridiculous. You are rendering those who toil to get Degrees and Masters useless.

  10. Kanyama Chima says:

    Aubrey,you should now improve your spoken English

  11. Malibusi says:

    laughable appointment!!!! He cannot fit in Dr. Tembo’s shoes, not at all!!

  12. Inhumane Rights Actvist says:

    Who cares! We stopped watching TVM or listening to MBC many years nthawi ya Bingu. Zodiak is our radio for news, Matindi for bwalo la alakatuli and sports, Star Radio for the English Premier league and ife a ku Bt its Times TV for local televesion. After all that, then we go to GOTV to watch the rest of the international TV.

    MBC is just a propaganda mill for the ruling party of the day since the times of UDF, DPP and Bingu, JB and now DPP and Peter. That will never change until the policy of the public broadcaster is completely overhauled into a new Communications Act. As of now, its not a public broadcaster but a ruling party broadcaster.

  13. Nawenso Osman mpaka lero sukuwadziabe amene anathandidzira kubera mavoti? Let me remind you that Zodiak was the official broadcaster of MEC results. Mapwala ako owolawo.

  14. Kavuluvulu says:

    Though I do not know the credentials of Sumbuleta, he could be better and more mature than the childish and stupid Bright Malopa.

  15. inhumane Rights Activist says:

    Who cares! We do not watch nor listen to MBC but Zodiak and Times TV

  19. Tilibemau says:

There are people who deserve promotions but kusankha agaru.

  20. ujeni says:

    Sick appointment, embarrassing appointment in a diarrhoea suffering country.

  21. ujeni says:

    Omwewa a Sumbuleta we have sat together kuma stands at Kamuzu stadium supporting Wanderers and buying freezes while the baking sun hit us hard, lero he is a Directors only because he is Lhomwe. Malawi will remain poorest unless meritocracy is implemented.

  26. Truth says:

    #20 Mgeme without ‘Kalilani’ was nothing! Central region by name.

  27. MBC DIEHARD says:

    All from Lomwe belt? No, not true. Chimbizga is from the Northern region to be specific from Mzimba while Mgeme is from Central region.

  28. nganga says:

    No women why there is Jane gogodus at MBC an old employee why not consider her iiiiii shame you want ladies to be promoted after you see their pants?

  29. Patriotic says:

    MBC is an extension of the ruling party so there are no merit consideration in these Board rubber stamped appointments

  30. sis zee says:

  31. Kulibe kantu says:

    The board is a sham. How do you confirm people without proper qualifications? This is a sick country. The board is afraid the appointing officer, President Mutharika.

  40. chindere says:

    Kodi Sumbuleta ali ndi degree?nanga Mungomo?

  41. Mwehiwa says:

    Very gender insensitive. MBC has women who have some reasonable education who could fill some of these posts. Their management team is like a seminary or a Muslim graveyard: only men allowed.
    We once had Emma Kaliya , Emmie Chanika, Seodi etc who could have fought for the representation of women in management. I guess they are now retired, frustrated!!!!

  42. Bakha Nkhomano says:

    Congratulations Guys. You really deserve it.

  43. vitselekwete says:
