Mutharika appoints another  DPP cadre in top govt position

President Peter Mutharika has appointed a confessed ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadre as deputy chief executive officer for the National Oil Company of Malawi (Nocma).

Mutharika with Helen Buluma

This comes barely days after the appointment of Gerald Viola as deputy chief executive officer for the National Reserve Agency (NFRA).

The appointment of Helen Buluma as the deputy CEO for Nocma has raised eye brows as Malawians continue to question the appointment of party sympathisers into top government positions instead of opening the chances to all Malawians through interviews.

Buluma vied for a parliamentary seat in Nsanje South West in the last election but lost to an independent candidate.

Months later, she lost her bid in court to challenge the outcome of the election results.

Buluma once worked as a senior advisor for UN Women.

She holds a masters of Arts degree in Development Studies and a bachelors degree in social sciences.

DPP, a collective of clueless stupid syncopants. No wonder idiots are ruling us even on the roads.

She has qualifications! Good! Is that what you are saying? What qualifications? An MBA? From which University? How about her Resume or CV? Her work experience? How about a job interview with the Board of NOCMA? I bet the NOCMA Board is DPP as well. What a joke of a president. Clueless. When we say Corporate Governance is lacking in Government Institutions. This is what we mean. Everthing else does not matter in Malawi these days, except your party affiliation and tribal affiliation.

THIS EXPLAINS WHY THE DPP CADETS ARE ALL OVER GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS OR AGENCIES BECAUSE THE VIOLAS WILL DEFINETELY JUST BE PLEASING THEIR MASTERS BY EMPLOYING JUNIOR CADETS .PETER MUTHALIKA IS A VERY DILUTED PROFESSOR GOING BY HIS ACTIONS, HE EITHER APPOINTS FELLOW TRIBESMEN OR DPP SYMPATHISERS FORGETTING THAT WE ALL PAY TAXES.PETER WILL LEAVE OFFICE A VERY UNPOPULAR PRESIDENT.
