According to Kalichero, lawyer Necton Mhura will be going to the United States of America (USA) next week and Ted Kalebe has since obtained his Visa to Belgium and is scheduled to depart next week as well.

Others expected to take their posts include Chrissie Kaponda (South Africa), Edward Sawerengera (Brazil) and Frank Viyazi (Mozambique).

Kalichero said the diplomats were waiting for communication from their hosting nations

Meanwhile, Nyasa Times understands that Parliament’s Public Appointments Committee (PAC) has approved six other presidential appointees to Malawi mission abroad.

The six include Ken Mphonda (United Kingdom where Ben Sande was recalled), Michael Kamphambe-Nkhoma replacing Voice Mhone in Germany who was rejected by PAC, Anne Kumwenda (Zimbabwe) replacing Thoko Banda .

Others were Wilfred Ali as Ambassador to Kuwait, Isaac Munlo as High Commissioner to India and Caroline Bwanali Mussa Ambassador to Egypt replacing Yunus Mussa who was also rejected by PAC.

PAC chairperson Lingston Belekanyama said they interviewed the diplomats and sent the results to the appointing authority.
