Political analysts urge Chakwera to fire non performing ministers

Political commentators say they expect President Lazarus Chakwera to shake up his 30 plus cabinet and drop all non performing ministers as the year draws to an end.

Fever grips Cabinet Ministers and their deputies  ahead of reshuffle

George Phiri, a political scientist at University of Livingstonia said Chakwera should live up to his word and sack all non-performing ministers before the New Year.

Chakwera promised during the swearing-in of his cabinet on July 10 that he would review each minister’s performance after five months and he would get rid of any underachievers.

Phiri insists Chakwera’s silence on the matter could suggest a retreat from his promise considering the apparent evidence that some ministers have not lived up to the public’s expectation.

Recently, Presidential Press Secretary Brian Banda asked for patience from the public insisting that the performance review will be done by December.

Meanwhile, Phiri has challenged the government to be decisive on the issue of homosexuality.

Recently President Lazarus Chakwera declared that Malawians would decide the way forward regarding the debate to legalise homosexuality and safe abortion for women and girls.

But Phiri said the government should be able to make tough decisions without any hesitations.

If a company is failing you don’t fire the directors but the CEO & his deputy. They all have failed, full stop. No kugawa maswit.

For example timothy mtambo, what does he really do? Mtambo must be the first one to be fired, then Mkaka (he has made serious deplomatic blunders), then Kambala, Lowe, Usi, Mia and the Minister of Lands whom we can’t even remember his name due to idleness. Chakwera’s is the most docile, the most incompetent cabinet so far. Zosankhana pachibalezi ndizosathandiza. A family cabinet has proven to be CRAPPY.

With the current Corona Virus, the ministry which Ussi is heading can not perform well.

I think there is need to name and shame the non performing ministers. Can someone release such list?

Those to be chopped should include the following: Mkaka, Lowe, Deputy for health, Labour, and trim the number of ministers from Lilongwe. How can one district have 10 cabinet ministers? A Chakwera mabvuto ena owayambira dala. State house kwazaza a chewa, cabinet half a chewa. Zinagwetsa a dad nzimenezi.

To President Chakwera! My suggestion is continue appointing families in your Caninet. We, Malawians support that and we will vote for you again in 2025.

They should start with that guy who couldn`t read his oath of office, had several attempts, it was a sorry sight; tall, gangling but useless; and that one who has got a wife in the same cabinet, has so little to offer

Most victims will come from UTM who will be replaced by MCP news sweepers. While we pray for Chakwera to fire incomptent Ministers, I also pray that he reduces his Cabinet this time around and make sure some Ministries are merged. For example Trade and Industry should go back to its original format and be headed by one Minister. My third prayer is that the news Cabinet should not have deputies. The PS in each Ministry is enough. No more politics of appeasement, so Bishop Mtumbuka said,
