Press Secretary for the State President, Brian Banda has revealed that the performance review for the cabinet will be done by December.

Cabinet review this month

On July 10, 2020 during swearing in of cabinet ministers, President Dr Lazarus Chakwera said the performance of cabinet ministers would be reviewed after five months.

“You each have five months to produce results, at the end of that period, you will each give a report publicly on your progress in each of the key performance indicators,” he said.

Speaking on the sidelines of a State House weekly update on Monday at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre, Banda said reviewing performance of the cabinet ministers will lead to firing of all underperforming ministers.

“The mention time ends in December and the cabinet ministers will be assessed and when the president is ready, he is going to review his cabinet and the firing or appointing of cabinet ministers afterwards will be decided by the president,” he said.

However, Banda has called for patience on plans to review the current performance of cabinet ministers.

“Malawians should wait until the president comes up with the outcome of the performances of cabinet ministers.

“Let me assure Malawians that this will be done according to the time frame given by the president,” he added.

On a different development, Banda has refuted social media reports that government is planning to buy a presidential jet.

“Reports that Malawi Government is planning to buy a presidential jet are not true and are just hearsay.

“Currently, Malawians are doing so much with too little, so it is very difficult for government to buy the presidential jet,” Banda said.

If possible, Mt President try to hire Harrison Kalua he was once a chairman of chambers of commerce and chief executive of the Mzuzu small holder coffee. One thing I like about that guy is ndiwanzeru, was born a servant leader Koma chomalizitsa, he is a God fearing and staunch believer in God

Gospel K made Malawians proud When he handled the Bushiri escape with dignity. He is so calm and never evade any questions. He looks jerked up in his position. Keep the guy there. He is admirable to watch and listen to. That is a true minister material. I felt so good watching my Malawian minister talking like a real minister. Uyi nkalakatha baba. You rock.

There was nothing amazing about Kazako. He was played by the SA Govt. He was busy responding to Social Media issues and didn’t know when not to refer issues to the Foreign Affairs ministry..He was lost. For example- The reporter asks him to tell us how Buhiri entered Malawi..Why then was he bothered about asking them on how he left SA? Kodi wakuba analowa bwanji mnyumba mwanu? Iyayi inuyo mundiuze kuti iyeyo mnyumba mwake anatuluka bwanji? Rubbish. We want to be told what he has achieved or promoted at the MICT. For me I learnt that he fired Mzati due… Read more »

You can never see anything positive from these Ministers because in the first place you never wanted this Government. Who can trust you with this task now. Just go and sort out yr Leader of Opposition pot belly, period.

As the firing is happening, let us not forget who appointed the so called underperforming ministers.
