The new Secretary should bring sanity to the government and empower controlling officers more. There is a tendency in government of giving people positions from outside the civil service leaving out people who have worked for many years and have been patriotic. Civil servants should compete for such positions.

I cant agree with you more, imagine, former Deputy Minister and Member of Parliament in DPP Government, Magret Mauwa, is now occupying a Civil Service position of Controller of Agricultural and Extension Services in Ministry of Agriculture? This is not own

All political appointments end up like this therefore there is no need to say he is fired. Even if Chilima becomes Head of state, he will appoint his own new people.

It was inevitable for the likes of Mukhito to face the boot. May its time to make use of the MBA that was done by someone else and him going to graduate for it.

The Heading is misleading ‘Mukhito fired at State House’ instead it would have better to write ‘Chakwera hires Kapondamgaga as State House Chief of Staff’
