Chakwera tweaks new cabinet  line-up:  Zikhale, Kawale, Chizuzu, John Paul being considered

President Lazarus Chakwera  has tweaked his cabinet line-up  which was to be released on Wednesday, and is finalising the list of ministers that would  revamp the image of a Tonse Alliance government hit by graft scandals  by some ministers.

Chakwera (R) says he needs more time to review assessment reports submitted by Vice-President Saulos Chilima (L)

Nyasa Times sources indicate that the President  was considering some new faces who include Malawi Congress party (MCP) legislators;  Ken Zikhale N’goma of Nkhata Bay South , MP for Dowa North East Constituency Sam Kawale and  Enock Chizuzu  who has just won the Nsanje North by-elections.

MCP’s National Director of Research Dr John Paul is among the possible names to be drafted in the new cabinet.

Chakwera said Wednesday night that  he needs more time to review assessment reports submitted by Vice-President Saulos Chilima.

The President, in a statement released, said the submission from the Vice-President was “as substantial as the President’s review is thorough”; hence, the task will take longer.

“Even so, the President is now fully seized of the matter and will release his Cabinet the instant he completes and assures the best delivery of service to Malawians,” reads the statement signed by presidential press secretary Brian Banda.

Chakwera thanked Malawians for patience on the issue.

This will be Chakwera’s first Cabinet reshuffle since winning the court-sanctioned fresh presidential election held on June 23 2020.

This is ntunthama government indeed led by a fool and a crook in sheep’s skin called chakwera, is it not him who said the appointed ministers will b there for 5 months? Sinathe? Wake up Lazaro, u a running a government not your farm. Chepetsa nduna zako, not a bloated cabinet for the sake of appeasement.

Some people think that Chakwera remove any UTM sponsered minister. Manganya, Kaliati, Mtambo can not go or Chakwera will risk the breaking of Tonse Alliance. Moreover Chilima is the one appointing the cabinet

Chakwera seems to have limited people to chose from because he is in government to run friendship and his criminal enterprise and there is no way he can leave out his accomplices like Nkaka, Chimwendo Banda, kandodo Chiponda etc. Chakwera is probably the worst president and very nepotistic.

zikhale considers himself superior to any Malawian. Chakwera will err big time by including this man.

Zikhale could be actually behind this article. He is so desperate for positions and such people will never be appointed. He was on Nyasa times again as a posible Minister, before this outgoing Cabinet was appointed.

His name will appear again before the reshuffle of next year or so

Few weeks ago, the president was making noise that before the end of March, a new cabinet will be in place. Today we are told he needs few more days. What days are you talking about? Where is it difficult to chop the ngongole cabinet and put in another ngongole cabinet? If you think the current ngongole cabinet had not yet been paid then shut the hell up. Ngati kusankha cabinet kukuvuta….no wonder you are failing to make right decisions for the nation. Mr President, you are wasting alot of time with useless meetings eg..celebration of AIP….we never saw Bingu… Read more »
