President Chakwera dissolves cabinet amid Malawians discontent with Tonse admin: Chizuma warned

Embattled Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera on Monday, January 24, 2022, dissolved his cabinet after promising to do so more than a year ago, amid discontent of his Tonse administration just two years in power.

The Cabinet dissolve comes hours after Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA) told President Lazarus Chakwera to reshuffle and trim his it to show that he appreciates that Malawian’s sufferings.

Addressing the nation, Lazarus Chakwera disclosed that the new cabinet will be in place in two days’ time singling out that former Lands minister Kezzie Msukwa is to be excluded over corrupt charges on his head.

The President was dismayed with the conduct of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General Martha Chizuma over the leaked audio conversation.

President Lazarus Chakwera says people who might have tricked Martha Chizuma to that recording better thing again if they thought the President would fire her.

He says the people might have managed to undermine the fight against corruption by reaching to trick Chizuma but will not manage to reach all systems including his office.

However, Chakwera has warned those who leaked the audio that, if they thought this audio will frustrate Chakwera’s and Chizuma’s determination to fighting corruption, they have to think again.

He says he will not move to fire her because he well knows that people behind the matter want government to give up in fighting corruption. Malawians are skeptical however that he did not approve the plans originally. They suspect he changed his tune when he saw how un-popular Many Malawians received the news.

President Chakwera says he is against the 60-day amnesty Attorney General Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda announced and has since ordered that it is stopped.

He adds he has directed Justice Minister Titus Mvalo to engage the AG on the matter.

The move also follows a serious public backlash the decision received with some quarters suspecting the current leadership was bent at shielding some senior politicians and government officials.
