President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has rewarded Paramount Chief Lundu of Chikwawa for castigating Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera at a funeral of Senior Chief Kabudula of Lilongwe.
Mutharika has appointed Paramount Chief Lundu of Chikwawa as one of the board members of the state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) which will be chaired by Reverend Billy Gama.
This has been disclosed in a press statement released on Tuesday signed Chief Secretary to the President Lloyd Muhara made available to faceofMalawi.
Lundu’s appointment comes barely two weeks after he openly criticized Chakwera at a funeral of senior Chief Kabudula, saying Chakwera will never rule the country.
“The Malawi Congress Party left the government in 1994 [after losing democratic general elections that ended the party’s three-decade one-party rule]. Don’t think MCP will be in government again,” Lundu declared.
Below is the new boards appointed by Mutharika;
