According to MBC ,  Tembo bid farewell to the top management officials on Friday,  and said he would still be part of the national broadcaster while attached to MACRA.

“I called on all Directors and Controllers of Malawi Broadcasting Corporation to bid my farewell to them that I am leaving MBC for another assignment that I have been given by the government,” Tembo said as quoted by the national broadcaster’s online report.

“It is a secondment. I am being seconded to Macra so that means partly I am part of MBC but I will be with Macra where I will be advising on digital migration.”

The veteran broadcaster, who joined MBC in the mid 70s, has worked for the station for a long time and returned in 2012 after leaving while serving as Director General for TV.

Meanwhile, government has given  fired  Presidential  Press Secretary Frederick Ndala a new post as “technical advisor” in the ministry of informantion , civic education and tourism.

Ndala who was appointed soon after Prof Peter Mutharika became president was working for Blantyre Newspapers Limited (BNL) where he was the editor of Malawi News.

The country’s media fraternity had high expectations on Ndala that probably he would bring sanity into the president’s office because of his level headedness, but that never was.

Just like previous holders of the office Ndala seemed to have had challenge in creating space for journalists to work cordially with State House and in an environment where they are not intimidated or harassed especially during presidential press conferences.

I hear that Aubrey Sumbuleta, the ag Director General and a few Directors at MBC master minded the Tembo ouster. Ndi dziko ili iwe Sumbuleta. We have not forgotten how you stole govt money in the name of sensitising Malawians to change the Malawi flag. Isn’t that why you got the boot from Information office. Have we forgotten how you embezzled money at the Electoral Commission? Do we remind you how you got beaten by a policeman, Mrs Ganya for flirting with his wife, Maggie. Uchenjere, there was Malopa there who was more intelligent than you, more closer to the… Read more »
