Wouldn’t it have been better to appoint a team of medical practitioners, if at all there is such a need?

Cabinet Ministers to do what, if I may ask? I bet they have already started budgeting based on the allowances they will get from useless meetings on top of what they shamelessly demand from their departments for functions which are their mandates.

Same old gurus, this man. Where is the young blood, the doctors and other medical personnels. There is no space for young blood in Malawi. Same recycled people Nicholas Dausi he cant even say. I am sick and tired of this leadership.

Good move but just a bunch of ministers really? are they really going to help us? This is a health crisis i would have expected the committee to compromise 90% healthy experts from different disciplines and just three ministers, namely minister of Finannce bcoz of money/ budgeting needed, minister of health and minister of homeland to secure our borders since this desease is defintely coming from abroad so we need to secure our entry points/ borders.
