LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse administration continues to go on the wrong path of governance against Malawians expectations over favoritism, nepotism and tribalism in public appointments.

According to a close ZBS source, the two have been rewarded for working towards marketing the Tonse Alliance during campaign by giving them free airtime on ZBS among other incentives.
“We are told next on the list is Emmanuel Maliro and other ZBS senior members of staff who worked tirelessly to promote the Tonse agenda at ZBS. This was part of the deal, ” revealed our source.
There was no immediate reaction from Kazako in his involvement of ZBS team appointment into diplomatic posts.
