UDF’s Ndanga faults Tonse govt on governance

Opposition United Democratic Front (UDF) publicity secretary Ken Ndanga says the Tonse alliance led government has started badly on governance just a month in office.

Ndanga: Off on a bad start

Ndanga has cited president Lazarus Chakwera’s appointment of a commissioner general at the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) as an example.

“The law is very clear that the commissioner general should be hired by the MRA board of directors but we don’t have the board of directors in place now,” he said.

He said the board of directors was supposed to interview candidates for the post.

However, UTM spokesperson Joseph Chidanti Malunga whose party is a major stakeholder of the alliance said the government was new and was in the learning process.

“Everything will be normalized,” he said.

Polytechnic based economist Dr. Betchani Tchereni said the newly appointed board of directors of MRA should move with speed to interview the new commissioner general to regularize the anomaly.

This is a learning process marred by shock with the financial state of affairs. Asiyeni kaye achite bounce. Mudziwanso. Babisani zuma mumasololazo. Easy. They are getting it right so far.

i agree with Ndanga. Apart from irregular appointment these grannies should be left to rest and enjoy their retirement. We were complaining of APM age yet Chakwera is all over hunting for retirees to rehire them. Bizwick started working when I was in standard five and I went to secondary, college and have worked for eight years and yet Chakwera thinks such redudant is still relevant. People like Kachama , Bizwick and Wislon Banda should be busy either looking after goats at their farm not to work

How about the explanation that was given that the appointments were on care-taker capacity to DETER the massive pilferage of government resources and DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE.

Ndanga trying to sound cleaver today. Can you tell us which board interviewed Mr. Phiri, the first Commissioner General of MRA when UDF was in power? Did you not pull him out of MIPA to be the CG at MRA? Were you right to do this then or have the rules of the game changed when you left Government?

That is a lame excuse why do not just say that it was a mistake instead of saying that it is the learning curve. Because that is to suggest that Atupele was right thar Chakwera will be an experimental president. Just try to read & ask then do the right thing. Do not let the people down. People don’t want to go back to the rotten DPP era.
