Personal Assistance (PA) for Minister of Civic Education and Unity Timothy Mtambo, Lyson Sibande has resigned as his appointment received mixed reactions from the general public.
Many claimed Sibande is Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) operative who has been a critic to President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera as well as his vice Dr. Saulos Chilima.
“It is with great regret, that after some deep reflection on my past and soul searching, I have decided to resign from your office as Personal Assistant,” reads part of the letter by Sibande addressed to Mtambo.
According to Sibande, there are several of his past Facebook posts where he wrote negatively about Chakwera and Chilima, and at some point he also wrote negatively about former president Joyce Banda and Peter Mutharika.
“I am very ashamed about the mistakes I made and I plead with you to convey my apologies to the State President, the Vice President and the former Presidents. I did not mean to harm them, but I got carried away with social media activism,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sibande said he will continue serving his position as Deputy Communications and PR Strategist for (Citizen for Transformation (CFT).
“If it pleases you, honorable, I would like to keep my position in CFT so that I can continue to work with you as you help President Chakwera to create a better Malawi Okomera Tonse,” said Sibande.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
