A week after new blood of commissioners was injected into the Malawi Electoral Commission, the office of the body’s spokesperson also received new blood.
MEC spokesperson Aubrey Sumbuleta- a journalist – was shown the exit door last week and replaced by another journalist Sangwani Mwafulirwa who once worked for Blantyre Newspapers Limited and late Bingu wa Mutharika’s defunct Guardian paper.
Sources at the electoral body have confirmed the changes and said they look forward to the new spokesperson.
“It is true Mr. Sumbuleta has been given a letter terminating his contract at the Commission. The new comer is Mr. Mwafulirwa. I hope you know him. He is your colleague in the media,” a senior official at the electoral body said.
Sumbuleta is one the people from the Lhomwe belt that the new government has shown the exit door from its system.
Others are Secretary for Treasury Joseph Mwanamvekha, Edward Sawerengera director of State Residences, Lloya Muhara commissioner general of Malawi Revenue Authority, Inspector General of Police Peter Mukhito, chief executive officer for Admarc Charles Matabwa and central bank governor Perks Ligoya.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
