Mutharika tipped to let go ‘riff ruffs’ as he hires new Malawi cabinet

With the battleground of fresh presidential elections in his rear view mirror President Peter Mutharika  needs a different type of top team as political commentators have advised to  remove “riff ruffs” when hiring a new Cabinet.

Mutharika: Exercising discretionary powers to hire a new cabinet,

Mutharika on Friday fired his entire Cabinet ahead of a possible presidential election in May.

The Constitutional Court last month annulled Mutharika’s victory in the May 2019 presidential election, ordering a re-run within 150 days after opposition parties said there were irregularities in the vote.

Mutharika has appealed the Constitutional Court decision.

But political analysts believe the Cabinet dissolution  is an effort to  assemble a war cabinet with one battle in mind: Fresh elections.

Political commentator Humphreys Mvula  says Mutharika should have a brutal clear out of the ‘riff ruffs’ that were giving the President a bad name and replace them with the people that can endear the President to the people.

“This is the time to remove individuals that make him and DPP look toxic and an opportunity to rebrand. It has dawned on him that the elections are now certain following the Supreme Court ruling,” he said.

He said Mutharika mayincorporate Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) partner United Democratic Front (UDF) in the Cabinet ahead of the forthcoming presidential election.

“The President might wish to reconstitute the Cabinet to incorporate UDF members but at the same time try to put loyalists in Cabinet positions to resolve the party’s infighting,” he said.

Other analysts also say  what Mutharika needs now is a delivery cabinet to turn his election promises into tangible policy.

“He needs to make a campaign cabinet,” said Henry Chingaipe, a political analyst with local thinktank the Institute for Policy Research and Social Empowerment.

The unexpected dissolution of cabinet was announced in a statement by government chief secretary Lloyd Muhara.

Until the appointment of a new cabinet, all ministerial powers, functions and responsibilities will be exercised by the president.

Benjamin Kabinda Sakala, if Humphrey Mvula failed during UDF, do you mean he should not advise and help Mutharika but just look on at him while he is sinking so that he also fails too like him? Nzeru n’zayekhatu paja adaviika nsima mmadzi!

Our law professor tippex President is so used to the incessant voices of unsound advice and counsel and using such to action his plans and rhetoric that it is doubtful that he will suddenly begin to listen to and take action according to different and voices of sound judgement. Let’s wait and see!!!

We’ve got a problem here. How can a Riff Ruff remove ruff ruff? Ofcource we have the obvious riff ruff, like those who do not bat an eye pouring obscenities at others or those with phoney PhD degrees.

Generic are the identical clones of branded medications. The only difference in the two being the patent and the price at which it is sold. It contains the same active ingredients and match the branded drug in terms of both pharmacokinetic and chloroquine pharmacodynamic properties. Be it dosage, strength, route of administration, safety, efficiancy, or use, genetics match their counterparts in all aspects.
