Nocma board decides to fire acting CEO Buluma

Embattled National Oil Company of Malawi (Nocma) acting chief executive officer Hellen Buluma has been removed of her position.

This follows the board of directors resolution that Buluma should no longer be acting CEO.

The board which is chaired by Secretary to President and Cabinet (SPC) Zangazanga Chikhosi made its decision followingan uproar from a cross section of Malawians who protested vehemently against her appointment.

Helen Buluma: Removed as Nocma acting CEO

They say Buluma is a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) political activist who stood on the party ticket during the 2019 parliamentary election.

State House press secretary Brian Banda has confirmed that the board already communicated its decision to President Lazarus Chakwera.

Earlier this month, the President gave the board two weeks to look into public concerns surrounding the appointment of Buluma.

According to Banda, Buluma has been informed about the decision.

Buluma replaced Gift Dulla who was arrested in September this year for alleged abuse of office.

Some Nocma staff were also pressing the board to take disciplinary action against Buluma for alleged mistreatment.

It is not the Board that has fired her, it’s the President. Our very own Vhakwera. He stood on the podium the other day to announce that he had heard ”the voice if reason from people” and that he would correct the arnomally. This approach to things is wrong. The only problem the young lady committed is sympathising with DPP. Are we saing all people in government institutions should be MCP sympathisers?? Can we say the president us honest when he talks about trimming his powers when he continues to make those kind or decisions?? Kodi nanga tisankhe ndaniiii Yemwe… Read more »

Just like MCP Tinatopa nayo from 1964 to 1994. With its membership Cards, and taking chickens to gift a long time dictactor.,, harrasment from the paramilitary group young pioneers. Detaining political opponents with no trial and feeding them to crocodiles. So please spare me the babel of DPP Alomwe and any other dust nyau mask wearing apes might have. If you want to speak of tribalism Kamuzu was the first to pull Kasungu out of its ant hill dust, due to favoring his own. Then Bakili did with Ntaja and machinga. Now you beasts have a problem with Mlakho. Its… Read more »
