Govt fires Chisi as Medical Council of Malawi board chairperson

Government has fired controversial Umodzi Party president John Chisi as chairperson for Medical Council of Malawi just days after announcing that he has severed his ties with the ruling party.

Chisi: Removed

Chisi announced last week that he would support Tonse Alliance presidential candidate Lazarus Chakwera during the Constitutional Court sanctioned presidential election slated for July 2.

Chisi reluctantly confirmed his sacking as board chairperson.

“Yes, it is indeed true but I am yet to receive the official letter but it is true,” he said.

Medical Council of Malawi chief executive officer Mr. Ndovi said he had also heard the news from Chisi himself.

“I am yet to be briefed on the matter by our directors,” he said.

Umodzi Party was in an alliance with the Democratic Progressive Party in the run up to the now annulled May 21, 2019 tripartite election.

This firing is sending a bad message to the Chief Secretary, Loyd Muhura and his team of beneficiaries of the Lomwelisation Project? They will start asking themselves about the aftermaths of the 23rd June Presidential Elections should their old man lose?

Chisi! You better tell ppl the truth. You ‘ve been striped off your position for saying that corona virus can not spread in political rallies. And you being a professor, you can’t talk this nonsense. That’s abyssmal. It really shows your a fake prof and educated salvage.

So all those that are DPP supporters will have to fired should the opposition win the 2nd Juiy elections. DPP and mutharika zinazi mudziganiza the implications. As a citizen I really feel sorry for those people put in various positions by DPP the likes of Walter nyamulandu, itaye, simbuleta , malata, ning’anya, mwandidya, the NRB cadet, Mwapatsa, namathanga of MDF and his deputies.
