Govt fires Kumbemba as head of Malawi Investment and Trade Centre

Government has fired Malawi Investment and Trade Corporation (Mitc) chief executive officer  Clement Kumbemba, Nyasa Times understands.

Malawi Investment Trade Council Chief Executive Officer Clement Kumbemba removed from his post

Kumbemba was told that he was being deployed to Ministry of Trade as Director, apparently a demotion.

“He is out of Mitc, he was told on Monday and his Blood Pressure shot upon receiving the news,” said a close ally of Kumbemba.

The Mitc job was one of the flashy and soft jobs which required Kumbemba globe trot.

Insiders at Capital Hill hinted that Kumbemba brought nothing to Mitc despite his numerous trips around the world scouting for investors.

I’m appalled with the inaccurateness of this article on Kumbemba and even more appalled at the extent of our demented minds that can excitedly discuss his blood pressure behavior with the press, let alone his ‘gallavanting.’ I’ll guarantee you, this same person will do the same with the next CEO. They are drawbacks in society, the kind that keep putting spanners so that productive agendas are not implemented, and take joy from the lack of progress. We have a lot of such fools. I worked under Kumbemba for some 6 solid years and moved on for personal reasons. Indeed he… Read more »

Very correct. However, investors go where there are no blackouts.

Next government will not tolerate that nonsense. You go outside to learn. First prepare a plan and say what change you will
Bring. Upon arrival – present what you have learned how your department will benefit. What new things should be adopted and implemented. What support do you need? Who else should learn from you. What is the timeframe for your new action. Performance indicators. Simple. Failing that, just know that you will not travel anymore. The level at which Malawi has reached calls for innovative minds, learning minds and daring minds. Not business as usual.

nzeru za MCP eyadi. kkk This is a democracy we dont just lock people up without proof. Most corruption cases are hard to prove. its mostly he said, she said and takes a lot of resources to follow up. accounts are hidden abroad in shell companies. its not as easy as catching your local thief. We all know the cashgate people, ask yourself how many have actually seen jail. or been sentenced for deserved terms. even Ralph Kasambara is still walking around when the whole country knows he had Mphwiyo shot.

Yes, we need people who are results-oriented. Travelling alone is nothing if that cannot be backed up by positive outcomes of the mission.
