Mulumbe back at Admarc as CEO

State produce trader Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc)CEO Foster Mulumbe is back in office after serving a forced leave a month ago to pave way for investigations on his involvement in the procurement of K30 billion maize from Zambia.

Admarc CEO Foster Mulumbe: Back to work

He is back in office two weeks after graft-busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau raided his office and home and confiscated a number of computers and items.

Board chairman James Masumbu said the board would meet to discuss the fate of Mulumbe.

He said the board will also discuss recommendations by the presidential commission of inquiry on maizegate to have him and other Admarc officials face disciplinary action for failing to adhere to laid down rules and procedures of procurement in the purchase of the maize.

Mulumbe has always denied any wrong doing.

The suspicious dealings in the procurement of the maize from Zambia caused an uproar and led to the sacking of Agriculture minister George Chaponda after President Peter Mutharika succumbed pressure to fire him.

Margaret Mauwa, the acting CEO has stepped aside and gone back to her office as deputy CEO.

    When voting we become tribalistic but when crying we cry together. This means that we need to change our political mind set. We should not vote for a person because he/she comes from our region but we need to vote for someone who will deliver genuine services to the nation.

  3. Hede Heart Lulu says:

    All commentators herein are daft and jealousy. It shows all of you have not held any managerial or senior position . You are simply upstarts and your heads are full of classroom theories. The problem is you won’t qualify to replace Mulumbe.

    O……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O
    The report (by the Commission of Inquiry) makes scathing revelations that procedures were seriously flouted under Mulumbe’s watch; and you can tell us that such a person is back as CEO?
    . . . If procedures were not followed, doesn’t this tell us that the guy is careless in his job?
    . . . If some corrupt tendencies were detected in the whole deal, is he not accountable as CEO?
    . . . But if Mulumbe is exonerated of any wrongdoing (corruption), how about his wholesale-carelessness hence egregious incompetence?
    . . . Kodi who and where is the president of this country?
    . . . Yes, some myopic (short-sighted) minds may argue that this has nothing to do with the president, but who appointed this board, if it is not APM?
    . . . And who thinks that the ADMARC Board has reinstated Mulumbe without first seeking guidance from APM? This is very bad!
    …………………………………
    You see . . .
    . . . When you think that APM has woken up from his slumber (in dealing with corruption), you realise that you were just cheating yourself, as the man was just stretching his legs for some snoring sessions.
    . . . Nanga, who doesn’t know that consistency in doing something is just as important as the thing you are doing? Kodi, what sense does it make for APM to dismiss Chaponda and retain Mulumbe, yet both these guys are just as malodorous?
    . . . Is it hard to see that the firing of Chaponda was done not because APM believes its the right thing to do; but because he was under duress to do it?
    …………………………………………………..
    Truth . . .
    . . . In a country that is well-governed, this Mulumbe could never be anywhere near position of authority again. The guy has shown acute lack of seriousness and professionalism on his job.
    . . . Elsewhere, the slightest suspicion that someone is involved in corrupt tendencies, see people resign. Koma kuno nde iyayi? Whats wrong with us?
    . . . If APM had nothing to do with this, he could even fire the entire Board of ADMARC for such betrayal of trust (by retaining Mulumbe). Alas!
    What wrong did Malawians do, to deserve this kind of insult from the powers that be? This is very bad!

    Who had the powers to give him the forced leave? Who again was given the powers to allow him resume his duties? Is it the same Board? When the Board says it will sit down to discuss his fate, which Board is this, the same Board which stopped him from working? What are the results of the investigations? Why don’t they decide his fate while he is still on the forced leave?
