Following the earlier announcement to the resignation of People’s Party Vice President and Transport Minister Mohammed Sidik Mia, Malawi’s President Joyce Hilda Mtila Banda has this afternoon fired the former PP strongman’s brother, Mr Younos Abdul Karim as Malawi’s ambassador to the oil rich Kuwait Kingdom.
President Joyce Hilda Mtila Banda this afternoon personally called Minister of Foreign Affairs Ephraim Mganda Chiume and Principal Secretary George Mkondiwa to have her decision effected.
A letter has since been written by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and as we write, it has landed in the Office of President and Cabinet at Capital Hill for approval.
Despite being a brother to Mohammed Sidik Mia, Mr Younos Abdul Karim has been one of Malawi’s most outstanding ambassadors.
Mia announced this afternoon that he had quit the PP and has so far been linked with a move to MCP. His resignation has come as a shock to both the PP and the nation.
