The Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (Macra) has recruited a well known ruling DPP cadet operative as an office assistant at the cash rich institution without calling for any interviews for a fair recruitment process.
Nyasa Times can reveal that Macra Director General Godfrey Itaye under instructions from Local government minister Kondwani Nankhumwa hired the DPP cadet by the name of Priscilla Nzunga as Office Assistant.
The coming in of Nzunga is source of gossip in the corridors of Macra where fellow employees are now not comfortable to be working with a political party operative.
“How are we going to work freely knowing that there is a political party operative here and we have to censor what we say otherwise we will be in trouble,” said one employee who confirmed of Nzunga’s employment.
“Employment should also be seen to be fair. If there was a vacancy, I thought rules of good governance require that you advertise for that post and everyone compete? But to just pick a political party operative, I think this is abuse of office, if not then I don’t know what it is,” said another employee.
Others fear of repurcations as the DPP cadets are known for savagery acts against opposing figures.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
