Malawi govt changes Chilima’s replacement at Malabo Forum: It’s now Fabiano not Mwanamvekha

After President Peter Mutharika directed that Vice-President Saulos Chilima should  be  replaced as co-chair of the Malabo Montpellier Forum, an international think tank to which he was appointed, with  Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development Joseph Mwanamvekha, the government on Monday announced that instead Minister of Foreign Affairs Emmaneul Fabiano will be in charge.

Fabiano: To co-chair and host the forum in Lilongwe

According to a statement issued by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Corporation, Fabiano co-chair and host the forum in Lilongwe on Tuesday to launch a new report by the panel titled Mechanized: Transforming Africa’s Agriculture Value Chains, a duty which the vice-president Chilima was scheduled to perform.

Chilima co-chairs the forum with Minister of State for Planning and Development of Benin, Abdoulaye Bio Tchané.

But Chief Secretary Lloyd Muhara  in a later dated July 7, 2018  addressed to the Secretary to the Vice-President Clement Chinthu Phiri , directed that the international conference should instead be presided over by Mwanamvekha.

Muhara said President Mutharika assigned Mwanamvekha, MP in his capacity as Minister of Agriculture to chair the Malabo Montpellier Forum .

The Malabo Montpellier Panel, comprising 17 leading African and European experts in agriculture and public policy, appointed Chilima as co-chair in September, 2017.

Chilima first co-chaired the forum in December, 2017 in Cotonou, Benin where the Malabo Panel of experts reviewed a report which analysed policy decisions that African countries have taken to reduce malnutrition levels and to promote healthier and more diverse diets.

Dr Fabiano can handle this assignment.he is a man full of knowledge and can be the best candidate to be running mate of Prof. Mutharika. He is quite, humble as well as committed Catholic too. He has a good record and a good performer. Any insane person cannot allow Chilima to chair this meeting if he or she was president. He has made his desires or ambitions known to the public, no president would have trusted him to carry this responsibility.

This has got nothing to do with qualifications or other attributes you are talking about. LHOMWELISATION project continues.
Can’t you see the names: Muhara, Mwanamveka, Fabiano, etc,etc.
This is all what thieves ( masquerading as politicians) do. Deploy tribal cronies in all strategic positions.
SHAME!!!
