Malawi VP Chilima to learn Singaporean style of public sector reforms
Malawi Vice President Saulos Chilima will leave for Singapore on Tuesday to lead a team on Public Sector Reforms to study the Singapore reforms in-depth.
A statement from the office of the VP said President Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika has delegated his deputy to learn from Singapore their reforms.
“The Southeast Asian country is one of the highly rated nations that have successfully implemented Public Service Reforms hence the importance of the study visit by Vice President Chilima and his delegation,” the statement said.
According to President Mutharika, the public service is the centre of government operations and plays a key role in the social-economic and social well-being of the country.
Mutharika said as part of the implementation of the reforms, government will establish new structures to ensure greater focus on performance and delivery at the highest levels.
The President promised that his government will introduce new methods in recruiting Principal Secretaries and those from Grade 5 above “so that they should be going through a competitive promotion system so that we hire the best as opposed to the current system that is deemed not to be objective.”
On his part , Chilima, who is the chairman of Commission has repeatedly said, this time around reforming the Public Service is not a matter of multiple choices: “ It will be done and it must be done. And it must be done now,”
The Vice President will leave Malawi through Kamuzu International Airport KIA in Lilongwe at 13:30 hours.
The Vice President arrives back home on Thursday, March 19, through Lilongwe’s KIA at 12:20 hours.
you go for a study tour after the launch? hahaha……this will likely yield nothing.
Malawi and Singapore are far apart! Maybe we should learn from post war countries such as Rwanda and Mozambique who are doing better than us!
GOOD LUCK MR VP. WE ALL PRAY AND HOPE THIS WILL WORK WELL FOR THE SAKE OF ALL MALAWIANS. THERE IS TOO MUCH EVIL/ WITCHCRAFT IN THIS COUNTRY.

I HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT YOUR IN GOVT NOT FOR RICHES BUT TO SAVE THE MALAWI PEOPLE. GOD BLESS YOU AND I SUGGEST TO ALL MALAWIANS TO PLEASE KEEP OUR BELOVED VP IN OUR PRAYERS.

Zama theory basi, when are our elected leaders going to be practical in 2050?
The VP will learn that Singapore left the Federal Govt thereafter and prospered, therefore, if the North can leave Malawi (forced union)…..obviously, it will develop much much faster than the dying, selfish, sticking and stinking two regions. This is why they stick to the North with their lives ….to make sure that TIZIFANANABE in poverty……..free us you oppressive leadership, we want to go like the Israelites in former Egypt…..please leave us….we want to go…How much do you want us to pay for our freedom?
