Massi: Now deputy minister of agriculture

Muhasa said in a statement made available to Nyasa Times that the appointment is “with immediate effect.”

The was no replacement for the post Massi was holding at Home Affairs.

Massi has been moved to agriculture which is currently being held by the Head of State since he fired George Chaponda from cabinet on February 22 this year.

There have been calls fromParliamentary Committee on Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development and Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP) on President Mutharika to appoint new Minister of Agriculture

CCJP National Secretary, Martin Chiphwanya said Mutharika already possesses huge mandate by virtue of being a Head of State and needed  someone to at the Capital Hill “to oversee the daily activities in the ministry. “

Mutharika rarely reshuffles his lean cabinet, preferring to stick to close allies, especially those who fought alongside him during the time his Democrcatic Progressive Party (DPP) was in political widerness when they were out of government.

    One would have expected a brief CV/Resume of the appointee from the writer of this story rather than just copy and paste of what Muhara has written in the appointment letter. We all know that he is an MP just like the other 192 in the house! What’s so special about him? You can do better than this Nyasa Times/Thom.

    Watha nzeru Peter. Why is he keeping the job for Chaponda? He knows that if he fills the position he will have to bloat the cabinet to bring back Chaponda as he has too jelly a spine to fire people.

    Please note the Deputy Ministers do not attend cablnet meetings. Therefore, the MOA has not substantivee political head and anyamata are free to dance around.
