Malawi’s President Lazarus Chakwera is getting savage analysis for delegating his girl, Violet, to serve at Malawi’s consulate in Brussels as Third Secretary.

Mr Chakwera made completion nepotism – which he said was the sign of his archetype Peter Mutharika’s administration – a critical vow during his political race in 2020.

What’s more, presently web-based media is flooded with screen captures of addresses and paper cuttings portraying the president denouncing his archetype for being nepotistic.

A key online media influencer, Onjezani Kenani, who was likewise a furious pundit of the previous system, is among the more conspicuous voices censuring President Chakwera, proposing he is ending up being more awful than Mr Mutharika.

“Then if I’m not mistaken, Peter Mutharika never named any child or girl of his to any taxpayer-funded position,” Mr Kenani, called attention to.

The previous president did be that as it may select his niece, Duwa to fill in as First Secretary at Malawi’s international safe haven in South Africa.

State House has guarded the president’s arrangements, saying every individual who has been given a task was considered for positions dependent on their capabilities.
