According to the announcement by chief secretary to government George Mkondiwa, the appointment has taken its effect from Friday.

Viola was working as Director of Information.

The former Malawi Broadcasting Corporation employee has also been working as Primary school teacher at Mbiya and Rabu primary schools in Mgabu, Chikwawa before he enrolled journalism studies at Polytechnic College.

Viola has also taught at Kaphuka Private Secondary School.

The new press secretary has since completed Bachelors degree at Pentecostal University.

Viola replaces Fredrick Ndala who was redeployed to Ministry of Information after an alleged misappropriation of money.

Timpunza Mwansambo who was acting on the same position following Ndala’s fate was also booted out of State House when Mutharika had learnt that he was drawing two salaries from two sources; State House and from his former employer, MBC.

State House press officer is Chikondi Juma. Others in the State House press office include Sylvester Namiwa and Justice Mponda.

Ndala or former Nation newspaper journalist Gideon Munthali will be possible successor of Viola at Information.

People are just jealous of Chancol graduates. Quality matters as well. How do you get a degree with two years? That sounds like a diploma. The other element of education is reasoning capacity not just doing routine work.

So he did not finish his journalism studies at Polytechnic? Please note that Malawi Polytechnic is not called ‘Polytechnic College’ where are you getting the title from?

Ha ha ha!! Let’s facts let’s face. Private university graduates are second rate after failing miserably to enroll with UNIMA which selects the cream. You can say what you want but this is it…inferior graduates!! Chaff belongs to the pigs. Sorry but it’s blame god if you can for crafting your wayward flat brains with too few convulsions.
