Malawi govt appoints new Budget Director: Ponderani replaces Simwaka 

Malawi government has appointed Peterson Ponderani as new Budget Director after a major shake-up at Capital Hill in October this year that saw several officers being removed or relocated from their positions.

Ponderani: Now new Budget Director
Chancy Simwaka: Held the post of budget director

Ponderani will replace Chauncy Simwaka who was redeployed to be Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Defence during the October shake-up as a promotion from Budget Director.

Prior to his appointment,  Ponderani had served as Deputy Budget Director and currently he was Deputy Director (M&E) at Economic Planning and Development.

Simwaka took over from Paul  Mphwiyo who was shot at his Area 43 residence in Lilongwe in  2013.

Mphwiyo’s shooting opened a can of worms and a series of fraud and corruption allegations of public resources at the highest level in what became to be called the Cashgate affair .
