Chilonga tipped to be Commissioner for Lands: Mangani retires

Commissioner for Lands Felix Mangani is going to retirement and   Principal Secretary for Lands Jane Chikaya Banda is pushing for Davie Chilonga to be the next commissioner, Nyasa Times understands.

Banda:  Pushing for Chilonga to be Commissioner

Banda  served as Solicitor General since 2012 but was redeployed to scandle riddled Ministry of Lands as Secretary for Lands.

The Lands Ministry is riddled with corruption allegations.

In the recent Cabinet reshuffle, President Peter Mutharika  dropped Anna Kachikho as Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Planning  and replaced her with Jean Kalirani.

Now the battle is on who replaces Mangani.

Sources in the ministry said PS Banda ha svowed to push for her favourite Chilonga  who is also a Patror at Pentecostal Holiness Church.

He is being projected as “Mr Clean” in the corruption puzzle at the ministry.

But sources say he has his own dirt.

According to his Linked page, Chilonga  has  MSc in Valuation and Land Surveying from University of Portsmouth, UK and is a graduate of University of Malawi-Polytechnic with BSc, Land Surveying.

Kikikiki! Udindo umenewu wa Commissioner ndiwotani koma. So all the churches that side were allocated illigally…..I think we shd research thoroughly brfore noising…my understanding is that area 43 opposite area petroda is for institutions…churches..schools etc. So all those achina Charasmatic Church there, Nazarene, Lilongwe Christian Church etc are illigal. Sheee! Others would think this is wild reasoning.

It seems this is internal politics. I know Chilonga as a hard worker. Many of his Saturdays he works for Mota_Engil. He even take holidays to work as a land and social expert for Mota Engil. They guy is intelligent and he is well paid in these works. What dirt are you talking about. Ma jealous a Malawi. Check with Mota-Engil on their manganyu list

The problem with Chilonga is when you go to through the front door for assistance, he treats you like you have gone their to steal!!!

Perhaps he is helpful to his fellow pentecostalians and treats the rest if us albeit how honest we are as if we don’t deserve his and the ministries moment to assist.

The article highlights more strength on Rev Chilonga’s part and i think he wld be the best successor for the position.
