President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has appointed Umodzi Party (UP) President Professor John Chisi as board chairman of Medical Council of Malawi (MCM).
This has been confirmed in a statement released on Sunday signed by Chief Secretary to the President Lloyd Muhara made available to faceofmalawi.
According to the statement, Chisi’s appointment is with immediate effect.
Some of the members include; Dr. Medson Matchaya, Dr. Jessie Mlotha Namarika, Dr. Leo Masamba, Dr. Chisale Mhango, Dr. Rodney Kalanda and others.
The appointment of Chisi has attracted mixed reactions with many Malawians as reward to him for defending Mutharika.
Chisi has on several occasions defended Mutharika and accused the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera of being hypocritical.
