Restless Itaye wooing Macra board to save his neck

A desperate fired  Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) director general Godfrey Itaye  Tuesday morning pleaded with board members to save him from the chop by hook or crook Nyasa Times can reveal.

Itaye:  Bribing his way to stay put at Macra

An audit board meeting held at Ku Chawe Inn in Zomba, Itaye was seen making calls pleading with State House inner circle to influence the board to spare him the move.

Media reports revealed Itaye had offered board members up to K100 million to the board members to ensure they block his firing.

Baird chair Rev. Alex Maulana refused to give details but confirmed the board will discuss developments regarding Itaye’s fate, who was moved to Malawi Post Corporation and replaced with Henry Shamu – the Post Master General.

Itaye bribed presidential security aide  Norman Paul Chisale with a $100 000 state of the art Nissan Patrol vehicle whose details Nyasa Times has in it’s custody.

The vehicle was meant for one of the directors but was last minute diverted to Chisale as part of the kickbacks to safeguard his job at the regulator.

Itaye is the worst director general  who has brought the lowest work morale at Macra because of his political bootlicking, said a long serving member who joined regulator since it’s establishment and has worked with five DGs.

Fellow readers,
Pls xul me on the topic at hand.
I can’t make head or tail of who really initiated and effected Itaye’s transfer at Macra ?
Until then , is only one wud take his transfer seriously.
However, one wonders why Itaye is refusing to accept the transfer , yet , he is employed by the very arm which is effecting his transfer.

So , if he is acting like that , wat more if he was fired ?
Itaye ndi mbuzi ya munthu.

With Mutharika at the helm of leadership in Malawi, corruption is thought be the way of living. Mutharika is always ready to shield any corrupt officers and notorious people. With Mutharika at the helm of power Malawi is wrong hands. It is only corrupt and evil-minded people who are supporting him.

Let’s wait and see if his tactics will work for him. He will be forced to pay back all that money he is wasting because I don’t think it is his personal money, but public money.

As long as Matharika is leading this country, Itaye will be untouchable. Dzinakhala bwanji kuti achotsedweko? Who initiated the move? Ameneyo akhala mmadzi ndithu. Nkhani ya yayikulu panopa ndi kuchotsa Muthalika.
