Chakwera has so far brought into his Cabinet new comers in Samuel Kawale becomes new Minister of Lands taking over from the corrupt Kezzie Msukwa who is answering charges by the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB). While businessman Mark Katsonga Phiri becomes the new Minister of Trade and Industry previously occupied by Sosten Gwengwe and Roy Banda.

President Chakwera has so far released a “cautious” cabinet that excludes some ministers whose names are circulating in social media “gossip” chat rooms as being on the ACB radar.
