Long overdue dismissals. The dpp was there just to destroy professionalism. The civil service has it own code of doing business and this includes recruitment and promotions. It is not inline just to jump someone from PO or AO grade to P5. How would the ones being jumped feel. This demotivates. Someone who was writing loose minutes or Memoranda suddenly becomes your boss. Please look at what happened in all statutory companies and check how Director Generals, CEO and others were recruited. Do not look at the top bosses. They brought their own people.

Kazako said the trio were recruited without interviews. Let Kazako know that the following were also recruited without interviews: SPC Zangazanga Chikhosi, Samuel Maweru, Gideon Kalumbu, Chancellor Kaferapanjira, Janet Banda and many more.

Hope Jane Ansah is there to console her. The mess caused by Jane Ansah will affect a lot of lives in the long term. What reforms did Seodi White do?

White has entirely herself to blame. She foolishly chose to play hyper-partisan politics while working as a civil servant. All in support of a very corrupt DPP regime. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

Please make sure you do the same to parastatals. Eeeeish there is alot of mess. Recently SRWB and BWB recruited managers leaving out highly qualified people for fear of the top management position. Please find out who applied for the jobs and who were interviewed and who were taken.

Gospel, don’t beat about the bush, just say this is f**king political witch-hunt, period! We have seen this victimisation for so long and the Nokha Alliance is just being Malawian, typical.
