Govt kicks out Dakamau from Ministry of Education

Government has unceremoniously kicked out Ministry of Education principal secretary for administration Kiswell Dakamau just days after he led a government team to successful negotiations with Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM)  which led to teachers returning to classes on Tuesday.

Dakamau: Redeployed

Dakamau has confirmed that he is no longer in the ministry.

He described his removal as an internal public service management issue between employer and employee.

However, some commentators say his removal from the ministry of Education is part of a shake up in government as President Lazarus Chakwera’s clear the rubble agenda.

This week, most directors in the ministry have been removed, most of them demoted.

Government has shaken up heads at the ministry of Education, demoting most of directors.

Samson Macjessie Mbewe who was director of Higher Education, has returned to Chancellor College; Hillary Namainja is now Director of Administration in the Ministry of Environment.

Rhodwell Mzonde who was director of Education Planning has been redeployed to the Ministry of Agriculture.

Gossam Mafuta, who was director of Basic Education, is heading to Domasi College of Education and Ruth Samati-Kambali, Director of Secondary Education, is going to Nalikule College of Education as lecturer.

Recently, the government redeployed Nairet Molande, who was Deputy Director at the ministry to Malawi Institute of Education. Nairet is wife to former director of Communications at State House.

There have been calls in social media platforms and other quarters for Chakwera to hire government technocrats who are loyal to Tonse alliance to avoid sabotage of government business.

What is so special with him to make it news? Why did you not report about Ben Botolo and others? Please do not make a mountain out of a mole hill. He is still employed. Gossam Mafuta is still not employed ngakhale amanyoza a Chakwera openly.

It’s normal for a leader to replace obvious detractors with those who will assist in ensuring government’s agenda is not derailed. It is a known fact that many government departments are currently headed by those who were loyal to the previous regime whose recruitments were mainly to ensure looting, nepotism, shady deals, theft etc were not hampered.

DPP flooded the Ministry of Education with cadets. Who does not know Dakamau as a cadet? Who does not know Gossam as a cadet? Who does not know Ruth Samati as a cadet? We know that these people are professionally trained but they were brainwashed by dpp and their agenda was to promote one tribe. We all know that dpp did not have a national agenda and they were promoting people from the Lomwe belt basi. Malawians were sick and tired of this mafia government of dpp.

The more you alienate people the more you fill your oppositions ranks. Good luck on this path.

“technocrats who are royal to tonse alliance.” No! And a big No! We are moving in circles. If each party that comes in government will be doing this, then we are doomed. Why not look for technocrats who are neutral but hardworking. Those who can deliver not because they are connected to the ruling party but because they know their work. Those who can still work harder even if government changes hands. DPP put their men in place and mcp is doing the same. Where is the change? Please, where is the change?
