Itaye fires Liza Msusa: Reinstates Lipenga, Chitsonga at Macra

Beleaguered Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) Director General Godfrey Itaye has fired Director of Postal Services Liza Msusa and reinstated two more directors he fired last week.

Itaye: Presiding over the scandle-riddled Macra

Nyasa Times reported that Itaye last week fired Msusa, Director of Broadcasting Fegus Lipenga and Director of Finance Ben Chitsonga claiming their contracts had expired.

But in a twist of events, Itaye has reinstated Lipenga and Chitsonga this week leaving out Msusa.

“Its true Liza Msusa has been fired. We all know the reason why she has been sacked is because her husband, Khwesi, is a close friend of the Vice President and UTM presidential candidate Dr Saulos Chilima. She has not been fired because of her performance at work, she was a star performer, ” said Nyasa Times  impeccable source at Macra.

“When the three directors were forced to undergo interviews we all knew the target was Liza Msusa not the other two and most people here are not surprised,” added the source.

She  also said the board of directors has no power as they all succumb to Itaye.

“There is no board of directors here. Itaye runs the show without bothering about the board. If he feels like taking an issue to the board, then he just does that because he is bored and would like to so something to cheer his spirits up.”

“But in reality we dont have a board worth its name. They are all ‘madeya eni eni’. The board just exist in name because if there was one, all this nonsense would not be happening,” said the source.

Itaye has been presing over  reign of corruption at Macra and Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) opened investigations into two multi-million kwacha contracts the regulator  is alleged to have dubiously awarded in 2017.

The contracts in question include a K19 million supply contract Macra reportedly awarded to a business firm owned by a relation to an executive manager and another relating to printing of calendars worth K135 million.

If Liza Msusa’s husband is close to Saulosi Chilima, then she deserves to be kicked out. These are the people who disseminate crucial information to Saulosi that he unashamedly publicises during his rallies!
Julius Malema is out, next is Saulosi Chilima! He is a louse inside the belt seeking to draw blood.

To Ben: You are a good guy. I have known you since (I think 2010) when you joined from MCA. Iyiyi ndi nthawi yoti mupeze kolowela. A gentleman of your standing should accept to be tossed about like a pawn on a chessboard. Izizi nzakutha izi. Zisiye aise. You have a beautiful life to live.

By the way, I stayed with your brother in Area ***** in Lilongwe. He looks just like you. A good deacon, that one.
PS: I have deliberately blacked out your brother’s location for fear of these devils. You know them.

All the best Ben.

Your “younger” brother.

As I wrote earlier on, Director General has no power to fire anyone from the position of Deputy Director to Director, all rest in the power of the Board of directors, the fact that they went for interviews means their contracts expired and they are supposed to go through normal process where they have to compete with others , this is a fair game for every JIM and Jack ,The second thing Itaye comes from lower shire and Nsanje to be specific .
