It looks like you have failed to understand English, can you give us a break please, Munthali went for interview, who applied this post for him? Gone are days where critics should not just criticize, let them do the job not just criticizing. Go on the ground after all he is one of the 1million youth who want job. Get lost!!

These are not appointments where you just go into the street and start picking anybody putting on some colour like blue, but its an appointment based on interviews and convincing the panel

Congratulations Habiba, we still need more of you able women in such positions. Your first assignment at MHRC shoukd be to remove the dead wood in management. I have in mind the likes of Frank Mwafulirwa the acting Executive Secretary of the yes bwana type who can not tell the left from the right…
