Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) has appointed Chikumbutso Mtumodzi the former spin doctor for late president Bingu  wa Mutharika  as the new director of information.

President Chakwera L) with director of information Chikumbutso Mtumodzi

Mtumodzi confirmed with Nyasa Times on Thursday about his new appointment.

“it is true the President continues to appoint more youth in positions of influence,” said Mtumodzi.

This is the third time for Mtumodzi to hold the position.

He was appointed by Bingu wa Mutharika from December 2009 up to 2011 and  former president Joyce Banda appointed him from September 2013.

In 2016, Mtumodzi was removed from office and replaced by Gerald Viola.

It is reported from the grapevine that government has been compelled to appoint Mtumodzi to deal with negative media against President Lazarus Chakwera’s administration.

Mtumodzi also worked as deputy principal secretary in the ministry of disabilities.

Mtumodzi, I hope you are a changed person this time around. You once held this position under Bingu and you used to move around with bodyguards. These bodyguards were causing a lot of trouble. We do not need this kind of behaviour any more!

Your Excellency, Sir, you don’t need Spin Doctors. Just do what Malawians need and you will see that majority will be happy with your administration. From where I’m sitting when you’re trying to spin doctoring something, it is just a polite way of saying he is gonna be a lie Doctor.

Tonse Alliance, when do you advertise the job that you have have offered. Are you still appointing people instead of allowing competition? Voti yanga mudabweza masiku ali nkudza ndinu anthu abodza. You are doing exactly mbuzi mano kunsi was doing. Does it make any difference to us? Is this Tonse per se or Nonse Alliance? Hypocrits.

This word youth, youths prural, needs proper definition. According to the UN youth urban age between 15 – 24. Koma kuno ku Malawi nkhalamba za 45 -50 years kudzitchula youth munthu Ali ndi mzukulu. Is Mtumodzi really a youth? Is beans Chilima a youth? Nanga ana awo a 20 years tiziti chiani timakhanda?

Sometimes it helps when you are sidelined to shut up and continue working and be patient. A lot of people vent their frustrations in public which doesn’t help.
