Board  to hire new MBC boss, Sumbuleta fired

Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) is set to undergo a massive shake-up, with new boss set to be hired with interviews set to be carried by the corporation’s board next week following the sacking of MBC director general Aubrey Sumbuleta.

Aubrey Sumbuleta fired as MBC director general 

MBC board chairperson the Reverend Vasco Kachipapa said Sumbuleta has been relieved of his duties following a disciplinary hearing that was convened on Thursday.

He said Sunbuleta was  found guilty on four grounds of abuse of office and maladministration.

Kachipapa said following the firing of Sumbuleta,  Director of Engineering Aideni Gumeni is the acting boss at the national broadcaster.

He disclosed that MBC Director of News and Programmes Vincent Khonyongwa handed in his letter of notice of retirement before being called for disciplinary hearing.

Kachipapa said the new management to be hired is expected  to clamp down on political bias within the corporation and ensure professionalism to focus on improving the company’s reputation

“We are supposed to conduct interviews for director general of MBC and that of other directors next week,” Kachipapa said.

The credibility of the MBC was eroded as more and more media become available to consumers.

Meanwhile,  Sumbuleta  continue to face Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) investigations into sexual harassment allegations lodged against him.

And in DPP short sightedness, they thought Sumbuleta was DPP (wathu) when in actual fact he was UDF.

Amazing the way things happen. Now Sumbuleta finally knows the real world. He lived in an imaginary one.

Lero azichinda pa Kamba and not sexually harrassing women staff.

While this is commendable work in the move to emancipate this country from the yoke of tribalism and in particular, lomwelisation, this Government is in a total mediocrity that is made up of promise givers. Gentlemen, there is nothing happening in the development arena. All what they are doing is administrative management such removing the rubble, that should have happened along with reinvigoration of develop himent drive. The country needs infrastructural investments such as roads, schools, bridges, factories, etc., which this administration stalled across the country. MCP, do not sleep on your work, you will never see the light of… Read more »

Fall of the dragon. He fired many without regard to their welfare and life. He distabilized families. He traumatized staff. He stole big time through dubiius contracts. Welcome aboard Sumbuleta. Now you can buy fuel from your wallet. Now you will oay DSTV. Now you will employ a guard. Now your small boys can attend cheap private schools if not givernments schools. Now you can newspapers. Now you have no official vehicle. Welcome to the real world. Watipezatu.

The HR Manager at MBC don’t sleep on the job. The board chair says interviews will be held next week and yet the post was not circulated in print and electronic media . Wake up and advise the board of at all you the right qualifications and experience on how recruitment is done- internal or external. Kachipapa ndi wa mpingo wa Nkhoma synod And does not know how vacancies are filled unless as someone has already said kuti pali wina Amene akufuna amupatse position yo very likely a Tonse alliance diehard and not a professional. We are waiting to seed… Read more »

That’s what we were expecting.
Stop wearing colors of political parties when you are in government institutions. This should also be a lesson to others.
