OPC hires MBC’s Wahara as press officer for new VP Chimulirenji

Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) has hired a Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) journalist as press officer for the newly elected vice president Everton Chimulirenji.

Chimulirenji: Second-in command takes oath

Nyasa Times can reveal that Charles Wahara was appointed on Wednesday as Chimulirenji’s press officer.

Officials from OPC have confirmed the hiring of Wahara who once worked for Calvary Family Church radio as a journalist.

The hiring of Wahara as the vice president’s press officer comes at a time when some section of society blame President Peter Mutharika for giving the nation a raw deal as Chimulirenji has deficiencies in both written and spoken English.

The OPC got back the vice president’s convoy from former veep Saulos Chilima on Tuesday, the day Mutharika and Chimulirenji took the oath of office.

Wahara becomes the fourth press officer to work for the vice presidents after Diana Nkhulembe who worked for Cassim Chilumpha, Willie Zingani who worked for Joyce Banda and Pilirani Phiri who worked for Chilima.

Mark Thom, neither Horace Nyaka nor Authru Chibwana worked for the people you have mentioned since those Vps were not employers, but rather they worked with Cassim Chilumpha and Justin Malewezi respectively. If anything the guys worked for the Government which employed them and assigned them to the VPs’ offices. You must know how to weave your words properly.

Sorry my friend Ephraim Muthali the job you were eyeing is gone after heaping all those praises to Jane Ansah for what you called “best elections ever” and touted her as your man of the year.

OFCOURSE AS A MALAWIAN, WAHARA DESERVES THE POST OF PRESS OFFICER FOR VP. HOWEVER OPC MUST TRADE CAREFULLY ON ISSUES OF NEPOTISM. MY ADVICE IS THAT TO COME UP WITH ONE MALAWI, APPOINTMENTS SHOULD BE SPREAD ACROSS THE POLITICAL DIVIDE. THERE IS ALREADY AN OUTCRY THAT ALL TOP POSITIONS IN GOVT ARE ALMOST 100% SHARED AMONG SOUTHERNERS MAINLY FROM THE LOMWE BELT. DO THE NEEDFUL TO CREATE A BETTER MALAWI!!!!!!!!!
