Gerald Viola who was fired as Presidential Spokesperson and sent back to the Ministry of Information to work as technical advisor, replacing another former Press Secretary of the President Frederick Ndala, is on the move again as he has been redeployed elsewhere, Nyasa Times understands.
Viola has now been sent to Malawi Posts Corporation on a post yet to be communicated to him.
According government sources the shifting of Viola from Information Ministry to Posts Corp follows a series of interviews he has been granting to radio stations bragging that his redeployment is a promotion and not demotion.
Meanwhile, President Peter Mutharika is yet to name his new spokesman.
But he has politician-cum-medical doctor Hetherwick Ntaba within State House as a spin doctor.
Ntaba, who served as spokesperson to former president Bingu wa Mutharika until his sudden death in April 2012, is now President Peter Mutharika’s chief adviser responsible for domestic policy, and has been assisting Minister of Information, Tourism and Civic Education Jappie Mhango.
The President’s chief adviser on economic affairs, Collins Magalasi, is also working as the President’s executive assistant.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
