Chilima said at a time when Covid-19 is limiting us from physical interaction, such technical assistance for virtual communication is critical and highly valued.

Apparently, the Malawi Government has already started making good use of the equipment as Chilima this morning held a brief virtual conversation with the US Ambassador to Malawi, Robert Scott, during which they discussed the progress of Malawi’s Public Sector Reforms and how the US Government can continue supporting the reforms agenda in areas that require technical or financial resources.

“In general, the US government’s technical support to the Malawi government’s Reforms agenda is highly appreciated.

“The US government has also been crucial in supporting the review of the Public Service Bill which calls for appointments by merit in the public service,” said the Vice President after the virtual meeting with Scott.

He assured the envoy that the Tonse administration as led by Lazarus Chakwera is determined to implementing the reforms agenda for the benefit of ordinary Malawians through enhanced efficiency, effectiveness and professionalism in the public sector.

I wonder anyhow why Chakwera and his SADC colleagues have to meet in person? There is Covid 19 and financing
of the upcoming budget is questionable.
Please set you priorities right Mr President!

In other ways the Government of the United States of America is telling you and your ministers and your officials at government departments to stop global trotting. Stop traveling up and down attending useless meetings in order to pocket allowances. Most of the meetings can be conducted virtually, you do not need to travel. If you want to shop in Europe or USA, you can also order on line. No need to travel, save tax payers money

Hahahaha. We are not Russia or China for the US to be worried about. Komanso abale. The kind of protection Malawi needs to protect itself from US surveillance if at all US may want to, could be 50% of our whole budget. Let’s just drink Mzuzu Coffee and forget the rest.
