Chief Secretary blasts Macra Board on Itaye

Chief Secretary to the Government Lloyd Muhara on Wednesday blasted Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) Board of Directors for ‘undermining’ President Peter Mutharika of the firing of beleaguered director general Godfrey Itaye.

Chief Secretary to the government Llyod Muhara: President has moved Itaye , thats it

Mutharika sacked Itaye from Macra last week and deployed him to Malawi Post Corporation as Postmaster General but Macra Board, chaired by Reverend Alex Maulana ‘backed’ Itaye saying government need to follow procedures in removing Itaye from Macra.

Maulana and another board member Igolet Banda faced the wrath of Muhara when they met him on Wednesday over the issue.

“They were properly dressed down by the Chief Secretary and they were told to make sure that Itaye swaps with Henry Shamu at MPC before the end of this week,” said an insider privy to the issue.

The Macra Board is now drafting a letter sacking Itaye from Macra and appointing Shamu as the new Director General.

The two are expected to report at their various new work stations by Monday next week, according to sources at the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC).

Macra Board’s stance was seen as a direct insubordination to President Mutharika’s directive to fire Itaye at Macra.

The late HE The life Presdent of the Republic of Malawi, Father and Founder, used to do the same. There is nothing strange here. If fact, he was even giving 24hrs for you to pack, he meant business. The multiparty has brought in new changes were every Jack and Jill can say anything to anybody, that time was dangerous to live, even kuloza chala Kamuzu, was not allowed. Ana ake alipo, MCP, no way to go into government.

I don’t like Itaye, but the order by the President is clearly illegal. Follow the law.
