Reshuffle for Malawi PSs at Capital Hill: Chimwemwe Banda out of Information

President Peter Mutharika has made a reorganisation of his government  with a reshuffle of Principal Secretaries at Capital Hill aimed at strengthening performance in a number of ministries.

Mutharika is said to be looking at cleaning up his government by getting rid of non-performers.

Principal Secretary for Information, Tourism and Culture Chimwemwe Banda has been moved to the Department of Disaster Management Affairs to replace Paul Chiunguzeni.

Chiunguzeni has replaced Justin Saidi at Ministry of Defence who is now PS for Information, Tourism and Culture to replace Banda.

Government spokesman Kondwani Nankhumwa confirmed the reshuffle, saying it is part of restructuring to relocate people where they would be most effective.

Nankhumwa, who is Minister of Information where its PS has been relocated, said the reshuffle is “a normal process” with immediate effect.

It is reported that government is still maintaining on its pay-roll over 80 PSs against 19 ministries.

But spokesperson for the Public Service reforms, Constance Kilimo, said government is still committed to resize the number of the PSs as part of civil service reforms and has since stopped recruiting until the exercise is completed.

I ma not satisfied that only 3 PSs have been moved. There PSs who continue to plunder Government as they used to do in the PP Government. Where is the reform so that we can see changes. We in the business community continue to suffer because of these old guards who continue to Cashgate in the name of trips and unknown credits. VP save Malawi with your reform.

What is the point of having 80 principal secretaries? This clearly shows we are a stupid country.

Nobody has been fired or dismissed here, so there has been no cleaning of civil service.
