Chakwera’s cabinet reshuffle on the ‘March’

President Lazarus Chakwera will name his new cabinet  by Wednesday March 31, 2021, the presidential spokesman has disclosed.

Brian Banda: Chakwera to announce  new Malawi cabinet on Wednesday

State House Press Secretary, Brian Banda confirmed the development on Monday in Lilongwe during the weekly State House brief.

“I can independently confirm that in the next two days President Chakwera will announce his cabinet,” said Banda  responding to a question from a journalist.

“There are two days left before the first quarter of 2021 ends and as the president promised that he will reshuffle the cabinet at the of this month, and reshuffle his cabinet he will do,” said Banda.

Banda said president Chakwera is on course with ‘everything as regards cabinet reshuffle’ after conducting assessments on the ministers with his vice, Saulos Klaus Chilima.

He said: “The president made a promise to Malawians that at the end of the first quarter of 2021 he will review and and access each and member of his cabinet to ascertain as to who is performing and who is not.

“The process has been affected by the novel Covid-19 global pandemic, however, the president and his vice have done what was needed to be done and before March ends, a reshuffle would be done.”

President Chakwera came under intense fire for hiring members of the same family into his maiden cabinet.

Chakwera, appointed a 31- member cabinet, which included six figures who are related to each other, although not to the president.

Chakwera, 65, comfortably beat Peter Mutharika with 58.5 percent of the vote.

Malawians have voiced anger and rage after newly appointed President Lazarus Chakwera unveiled a cabinet that they said was tainted by family ties.

However,  Chakwera defended his decision by saying he appointed people into his cabinet based on merit and not based on who these people are related to or not related to.

“Each one of my ministers has been appointed as an individual and purely on merit,” said Chakwera’.

Meanwhile, the Malawi leader  will be hosting former president of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo and former Prime Minister of Ethiopia Hailemariam Boshe on Wednesday this week.

Much as anything disgusting is a possibility in this rotten world, we however need to be careful how make assumptions or speak disgustingly ourselves. Your comment is a shame notwithstanding that fact that there is literally no one to defend under the sun.

All ministers and high executives should be fired, especially MRA Commissioner and his team, Kenneth Matupa and his inefficient team…

President Chakwera, in this forthcoming Cabinet Reshuffle, remember that Tonse Alliance that helped in promoting you to power is a very big family. It comprises 9 Parties; “Awa avinapo, enanso avinepo”. Asakgale ngati a Know It All. Iwonso aphunzirira pompo ndipo it’s possible for another group to lean while there too.

Fire Mr. Milk! He can’t be a minister and the GS of the party at the same time. It compromises work.

I haven’t received any communication from State House yet 😕 regarding my appointment. Please make sure that am well informed before announcement, otherwise I don’t want you to be embarrassed when I turn your appointment down.

This time around the cabinet will be a criminal cartel to oversee his criminal enterprise. Nkaka and Chimwendo Banda will be placed in strategic ministries that will allow them to have easy access to government money.
Chakwera can never remove Chiponda, kandodo, nkaka and Chimwendo can never be removed from cabinet. The moment Chakwrra dares to remove them that will be the end of him and Chakwra knows that he owes his continues stay at state house to them

Chakwera can indeed not remove the above mentioned corrupt Ministers for some reasons. Mkaka will help Chakwera in posting his relatives to foreign service as arranged, Chimwendo Banda will assist in collection of bribes from amwenye and foreigners, Chiponda can never be removed because of the huge Covid 19 funds she is sourcing for State House. Anthu munalankhula kuti why only removing John Phuka and shielding her, Chakwera gave a deaf ear. Be prepared to hear that the next Cabinet will be full of relatives and families. Is Chilima around? Malawi will NEVER change. I can see early down fall… Read more »
