BCC chief executive officer Ted Nandolo confirmed that Kasunda is the City’s PR manager as with effect from November 1, 2014.

“Following this development, members of the public and the media are, therefore, advised to channel all matters to do with the Blantyre City Council through the public relations office,” said Nandolo

Kasunda is the outgoing chairman of media watchdog, National Media Institute of Southern Africa (Namisa).

Nation Publication recently also lost its editor Graciun Tukula to rival Times Media where he is also relaunching his column in the Sunday Times.

Congratulations are in order Mr Kasunda. Finally the council has the mouth piece who understands the value of information after it was named the most secretive entity. The former PR was acting as a secretary who was successfully tainting the good image of the council by sitting on vital information.

Mwina nkulandilako ulemu pamalawi. Most jornos survive ndizam’manja. I know a number of them who literally ask for kakang’ono wherever they go on duty, makamaka akakhala ma function okhuza ma company a amwenye – kuapindira pensulo.

We are happy with your appointment Bwana. It would appear the old people at BCA have lost ideas. As a well travelled person we hope you will help to bring new ideas in the assembly. Maybe a new broom will sweep clean. Start with Kamba market where there are a lot of shabby shacks coming up. We need to see some change. We need security lights on the path through Mandevu bush to Queens. The rivers (eg Naperi)in the city are filthy. The sewage system is in bad shape. Lets see if you can do something. Congraturations.

Why blame anthony. We all work for money. He does not work for journalism. If BCC will give him a better life than nation, let him go. Its about him and his kids. Are u guys going to feed his family if he remains on a meager salary at nation? Tiziganiza. Voice Mhone uyu waitaya yokangana ndi boma because his kids were suffering. And none of ur helped him pay school fees. Today he has accepted to b ambassodor. Ndiye iwe galu ukuti mfwe mfwe mfwe….. No dont leave journalism…. Journalism my foot. Are u going to feed his family????
