Chakwera pleads for patience on cabinet

President Lazarus Chakwera has reiterated his call for Malawians to exercise patience over the ongoing assessment of his 31-member cabinet.

Chakwera was last Wednesday expected to announce a fresh cabinet as per his earlier promise to chop out non- or underperforming members.

He however made a U-turn at eleventh hour, giving an excuse that the cabinet review would not conclude in time as he had received the necessary assessment reports a bit late.

Chakwera then pledged to come up with a new cabinet as soon as he is done with the assessments.

In a latest Capital FM enquiry to Chakwera through his secretary Brian Banda, the Malawi leader has maintained his appeal for calm and patience regarding the new cabinet date.

“We issued a statement that it will take a few days so let us just wait,” said the Presidential Press Secretary.

Asked as to when the assessment process by Chakwera will finish, Banda responded with a ‘no.’

Critics are however describing President Chakwera’s failure to announce his new cabinet as a lack of seriousness on his part.

On 8 July last year, the Malawi Congress Party-MCP and Tonse Alliance leader named a 31-member cabinet with a caution that he would assess individual performance after five months.
