Malawi Government Fires Health Ps Dr Namarika For Being Lhomwe

MCP led Government full scale war against people of Southern Malawi ethnicities in general and Lhomwes in particular continues to move at a swift pace with President Chakwera’s dismissal of Dr Dan Namarika, Principal Secretary for Ministry of Health.

 Dr Namarika, a Lhomwe by tribe, becomes the first senior casualty of MCP’s anti-South crusade. Reports reaching us indicate that Dr Lazarus Chakwera made it clear that he is not comfortable with a hardcore Lhomwe heading such a crucial Ministry as Health because he had zero trust in any person from the tribe regardless of his or her qualifications or experience before instructing OPC to relieve him of his duties with immediate effect.

  1. In other words you are saying he was hired because he was hired because he is a Lhomwe and now he has been fired because Lhomwe. Thats a draw game (1-1) and expect more of the same. Nepotism will be met with brutal force because Malawi belongs to all Malawians and not Lhomwes alone. By the way, you may do us good by joining hands with the Malawi voice online news.
