Nation editor Kasakula joins Malawi News

After poaching The Nation Editor Gracian Tukula from Nation Publications Limited (NPL), Times Group has pounced again, this time luring away George Kasakula who is currently Editor of Weekend Nation.

Kasakula: Moves to TImes Groups

Nyasa Times sources at both NPL and Times Group said Kasakula is currently serving notice and will cross the floor anytime to take over the Editorship of Times Group flagship newspaper Malawi News apart from helping at the newly launched Times TV.

Kasakula refused to comment on the matter when contacted by Nyasa Times, saying  “that is a purely private issue and in respect of my employers I see no reason why I should be discussing it.”

Times Group sources indicated Kasukala “is done deal.”

Kasakula has 14 years of experience in the media and holds an MA degree in International Journalism and Communication from Leeds University in the UK apart from a BA degree from Chancellor College.

His departure as a senior editor is a big blow to NPL who have also lost Tukula to Times Group barely three month ago.

Tukula is currently Head of News for Times TV and also a columnist in the Sunday Times.

Kasakula was columnist of ‘My Diary’ in Weekend Nation and is likely to start a new column in Malawi News.

NPL, publishers of The Nation, Weekend Nation, Nation on Sunday and Fuko used to be the Real Madrid of Malawi media as far as attracting talent on the local scene was concerned but lately it appears the company has lost steam and losing out to its sworn rival, The Times Group after the latter went on an expansion drive that has seen it launch Times TV.

Reports from the group say serious radio plans are on the cards.

Times Group also publishes The Daily Times, Malawi News and Sunday Times.

The former president the late Kamuzu Banda’s empire also runs a courier company Times Courier and a book publishing company Dzuka Publishing.

Athu achotsedwa ntchito pompano muwona. Company yokondera the top bosses only, the juniors r crying. PNL its a proffetional company,it knws where it is going & cares of everybody frm the top boss to lower level of employees unlike BNL ‘am telling u.

NPL is a resolute media house which is founded on principles & strategic direction hence it thinks about the welfare of everyone including the junior staff. While BNL is only interested in enrinching its top brass and when BNL starts recruiting big fishes, know that Tsunami is cooking. Some of its editors ndekuti ali pa mpeni, timva kuti sadyeka wadyeka ndimafupa omwe soon.

Taona ma editor eni eni ife. Palinso chiani apa? Gk GK wa chiani apa. Fokolo. Do u think NPL can die without him, was he born there? Or does he hold shares which he has withdrawn. Ifenso tili ndi xool kuposa yakeyo. Fwee fwee fwee, za mkhutu

This is private and normal in life and not worthy discussing here. Wish him the BEST. As for NPL you will get someone out there probably better than him.

Doing business in a capitalist world is competitive. NPL has to pull up its socks and prove that they still have what it requires to be the winner. To George, I admire your principles. You are a role model.
