JB Fires Mwanamvekha, Mwadiwa Replaces Him

Mr. Joseph Mwanamvekha has been fired as secretary to the treasury in a continued shake-up that is expected to continue affecting the government machinery now that a new President is in charge.

According to a statement from Office of President and Cabinet, President Joyce Banda has replaced Mr. Mwanamvekha with Mr. Radson Mwadiwa, who once also served in that position.

Also replaced in the treasury is the budget director Dr. Dalitso Kababe but the name of the one who has replaced him was not immediately available.

Minister of Finance Ken Lipenga also confirmed the changes but could not give reasons.

“Yes he has been moved together with budget director Dr. Dalitso Kabambe but am yet to find out why and where they are going,” said Lipenga.

Mr. Mwananvekha of late came under heavy criticism from the civil service over his style of leadership.

At some point civil service trade union threatened to strike to force his re deployment.

He largely believed to be a protégé of late President Mutharika. He also chairs the Mulakho wa Alhomwe heritage group founded by the late President.

Mr. Mwananvekha becomes the fourth top government official to be fired since Saturday when the new President was sworn in.

Other casualties are flamboyant Information Minister Patricia Kaliati replaced by Moses Kunkuyu, Police Chief Peter Mukhito replaced by Commissioner Loti Dzonzi, and Malawi Broadcasting Corporation Director Bright Malopa replaced by Benson Tembo.—Zodiak Online

The Director of Environmental Affairs, Yanila Ntupanyama, was appointed because of the same Thyolo connection. The rightful owner of that position is Dr. Alolysius Kamperewera who was dethroned because he comes from Dedza. Another person is Patrick Kabambe who received kickbacks on fertilizer subsidy programme together with Andrew Daudi. There Elvis Thodi who fired at Police for theft but reinstated coz of the same TO connections. Dr. Emmanuel Fabiano, Dr. Seyani, MERA management, Auction Holdings, MRA, Dr. Bruce Munthali-ka, etc.

Because of Bingu's neposistc behaviour, it looks like Joyce is against Lhomwes. But she is not. More fire, osachita chisoni.
